I found a "battery" website that had some suggestions that should be typical of any snap back case watch.
http://www.online-batteries.co.uk/whichb...

specifically they said that when you try to press the back on it must be flat (not one edge down as I had been trying) Put the watch face down on a non scratch surface and press with both thumbs evenly. If that doesn't work a press will be needed. If you have a vice a couple of blocks of wood to distribute the load on the front and back may work, otherwise take it to a jeweler with the proper equipment.

The thumb routine didn't work for me. I have a vice but figured many wouldn't so I tried something else first. I put the watch face down on a piece of wood. I found a small 2" long scrap of wood (3/4" x 1.5" approx) that spanned the back. I centered the back (aligned properly) placed the block of wood squarely and centered across the back and tapped the end of the block with a hammer. First try didn't work, second one did. I used a rubber mallet as the hammer but a regular hammer or other heavy object would work. The trick, I think, is to get everything lined up and square so the blow is centered and even.

Also, I'd suggest cleaning the back and the groove in the case and be sure the rubber gasket is properly positioned. This will give you the best chance of retaining the waterproofing. And remember to check that the watch is running before you do this. Some need to be reset (usually with a very small screwdriver or pin) after replacing the battery. There should be a small hole with some printing next to it. You may need a magnifying glass to see/read it.

Hope this may help you;

What is the battery specifications for DKNY ladies Watch NY3971?


If you look at the movement inside the watch it should be possible to find the movement number (you might need a loupe or magnifying glass to see it clearly) and name (e,g, Seiko-Epson, Miyota etc.)
If you can supply that information I can tell you which battery it requires.

I have a DKNY NY-1251 but i need the instruction to work it because it not working with new batteries. it was working but keeps on stopping


If it is an analog watch and the second hand moves a few time then stops and sort of twitches then the watch battery (even though new) may be bad. If not the the watch is dead and needs repair.

My watch is NY8456 not working


Hello,
Have you taken it to any watch repair shop?.
If it just stopped working and you have it for about 1,5 - 2 years, it is likely you will need to take it to get a new battery.

What battery is in the DKNY Ny Twist watch?


I had to look into this for my wife's DKNY watch and this particular model has a Ronda 751 quartz movement, which takes a 379 battery. You can verify this by entering the movement name 'Ronda 751' and you'll see pictures of the movement with a 379 battery inserted.

I bought my DKNY watch Duty Free in London at the end of June this year. I have lost the booklet that came with it but I do have the receipt. It has now stopped working. Please advise my next step. Thanks


Thanks for contacting FixYa.
I would say that your battery needs to be changed That can be done at any reliable jewelry store in your area.
If a new battery is not the problem, you will need to contact DKNY at:

Dkny ladies watch winder lost and watch stopped


DKNY is typically a quartz movement and doesn't have a "winder". I believe the part you are referring to is the crown. The watch may have stopped working for several reasons. The first three things I would suspect is that the battery died, the watch is in the set position, or the movement was damaged when the crown was coming off. If the watch is in the set position then pushing the stem in will cause the watch to run. The next thing to do is to replace the battery since it is only a few bucks. If it runs then you can replace the crown and your set. If it doesn't run I would suggest replacing the movement along with the crown and that you will have to price and see if it is within reason since this type of repair wont be covered under warranty.
Depending on the model of DKNY you may have to go through DKNY for the part. Remember that they are manufactured by Fossil. You could save yourself a lot of time by going to your local watch repair shop.

Thanks!
