Timex stem cleaning

Postby maskaggs » Tue Aug 18, 2015 11:17 am

I've got a Timex Easy Reader that just goes and goes - I only replaced the last one because I bent the case. On this one, though, the stem is rather sticky. I can change the time well enough - once pulled out all the way the stem is mostly fine - but changing the date is hard as I can't quite hit the first stop when pulling out the stem. Is there a relatively straightforward way to clean it?

Unfortunately these timekeepers (notice I didn't say timepiece) are not designed to be lubricated at all and the difficult date change stop is probably an assembly flaw that isn't worth the cost of repair. I would live with it as is.
