One of the hands has fallen off a watch and I need to put it back on.

Which screws should I undo to get to the face?

All I know is it's a ?????? cal 2209.

Well actually that was simple, I just needed to pry it off...

For future reference it's the screws on either side. Pictured would be at 9 and 3 o clock. See how they're half over the lip? That's pretty much the only form of securing the movement in these older Russians.

Oh cool, thanks!

You'd also need to remove the crown. There's a little pin (at 12 in the pic). Just need to push that in with something small and pull on the crown.

Ok, got it!

I put the seconds hand back on the watch and it works, not sure how much I should wind it though, any tips?

Also the hours and minutes hands are not aligned at all, with the minutes at 12 the hours is at about 20 past. Going to have to find some tweezers I guess.

Ideally you'd have proper hand pullers but if it's an old beater then you'll be fine.

Regarding winding, you'll just have to go by feel. It's really easy to know when you're close to fully wound because it will offer quite a bit of resistance.

It's pretty hard to fuck anything up if you make sure to take it slow and steady.
