take it to a decent repairer. may just be a back off, reset the crown retainer, (often a little hole you press into) pop it back in. fingers crossed.

when it goes back in it doesnt release the main hands that wind round so its stuck at doing that.trouble is i cant afford to get it repaired.i was hoping to own it for a bit longer than 3 months before it needed a service grrrr

It's not a big job and as long as you don't do anything else it should be a quick fix for you to do if you have a tool to remove the back.. post a pic of the back and the model details/movement number.

I regularly dismantle and reassemble oldish quartz watches without a problem. that's as long as your prepared to forego the waterproofing.. Seals can be replaced but are not pressure tested at home.
