Additional Information: 

     I purchased this watch as is missing a crown and said not working.   I got a battery from the local jewer but is was opened and I do not think it was new.   However the watch is running slow and the day/date is not changing and the hands sometimes stop at the 1/2 past Mainly).   I bought a new accutron stem and it seems to stick out to far, as if it the problem with the day day not changing .   

  I would appreciate any suggestions on whats wrong,  I am able to fix it if it is not extremly complicated.   Thank You in advance.

   I checked the battery with a colt meter, even the one I replaced it with and the voltage is correct.  I think I will just throw it in the drawer for now or ebay it as is.   I am kinda thinking I was mislead when buying it,   It said not working crown is missing.   I am starting to think the crown was removed to give the impression that was all that was wrong with it.   It seems there is a lot wrong with it and it has had problems for a while and I was taken by the seller.   Thank You.

   I have just noticed some damage to a couple of bridge screws,  I never touched anything but the battery.  Tells me the seller knew very well it had some serious problems.  I am going to see if I can send it back.
