CHEAP watch batteries!!!!!!!

If you're in San Diego, Go to Victors 99 cent (& up) store on Clairemont Dr. They have a blister pack with the 5 most common sizes (4 of each size) for $2.99!!!!! At stores the batteries are over $5 each, so, it's over a hundred bucks worth of batteries!!!! I've been using them for a while now, and have a battery tester so I know they're good!!!!!! Check it out!!!!!!!

OMG, why does it take s much to answer and who wrote the first answer? Perhaps she works for some repair woman? The answer to this question for Michael Kors Acrylic Womens Watch MK5248 is a 364 battery. It took longer for me to find the answer to this question than it did to replace the battery on my gf's watch. Here's a tip go to a hardware store or Amazon.com and by it for much cheaper than Walmart or like stores. you van get a 10 pack for about $5 on Amazon. Remove the screws over a white pillow case so that when/if they fall as you remove them you can easily see them. Took less than 5 mins to remove and replace the battery. Enjoy

You should be able to get one at any merchandise store. Walmart target kmart jcpenny where ever. You might have to buy another cheap band the same size pin. If they won't sell you a pin unless you bought it there. I had that happen to me before

My daughter gave me a Timex wristwatch (Indiglo waterprood, two tone, with day of month display for Christmas. The band is a bit big. How do I adjus it? It's not a twist o flex.

You just need a tool to push the pin out. Make sure to push the pins in the direction that the arrow points. DO NOT try to do this with any sharp object as you will ruin the band and ultimately the pins. You need a specific tool to do this as you it applies a quick "burst" of pressure to the pin which pops it out. You can buy this tool online at an inexpensive price (search: watch sizing tool), but if you don't have a huge watch collection I would just suggest going to your local jeweler to have it sized. I size all of my own watches, but I have been doing this for years. I would not want you to ruin your band or the pins by doing this incorrectly. It will probably cost you $10+ to have it sized at a jeweler, but you will be paying around the same for a tool. While this may seem like an annoying cost to pay, I assure you that it's quite normal, and almost everyone needs to have their watch sized. Watch companies make their watches big on purpose so that if you are a larger person you will not have to pay for extra links or special order them. Depending on where she bought the watch, they might even be able to size the watch for free (if they have the tools I am 99% sure they will size it for free as most places offer free sizing if you bought the watch from them). Even Wal-Mart offers free watch sizing if you purchased it from that specific location (this doesn't apply if you purchased the watch online though). Although the pin looks like it can be pushed out with a pen or something else sharp, please don't attempt this. I previously worked at a jewelry counter and can't tell you the number of ruined watches I have seen by people attempting to size their watches without the correct tools. Most stores will not let you return/exchange a watch that has been damaged if the customer has attempted to size it themselves either.

Hope this helps!
