A customer has brought in a Chanel watch because they have managed to pull the crown stem out without unscrewing it first. They then rammed it back in again so it rode up over the movement, but that is neither here or there.


The big problem is, that having not unscrewed it, the tube with it's threaded top has been pulled apart and is now in three bits (tube, seal and threaded top). Is it worth me trying to reassemble it?


Would be grateful for any advice.


Thanks, Valerie

This may be defeatist, but in view of the high value of the watch and your exposure to that liability. I would redirect back to the manufacturer, ( or if you take the job on charge very aggressively)

It's either real and you may struggle to get parts if you aren't an authorised stockist, or its fake and parts won't be available anyway.

Do you have any tips on how to put the pieces back together so they don't just come apart again, which is what's happening at the moment.


Thanks, Valerie

Just fit a new pendant tube, you can get them for less than a pound.
