..how much did you pay for your watch?? I know the
brand intimately. They are not inexpensive watches. Let me pose it
this way,
, would you do work on it yourself? Leave it to the
professionals. Remember the price you pay to the person who does the
job properly is because they know what they are doing.

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;

    Battery replacement


    Hello,

    do you mean you want to replace the battery for your watch?

    This isn't a difficult task to carry out. Simply get a small flat screw driver, use the screw driver to open the back cover of the watch, then you will see the battery of your watch. Remove the battery and replace with a new batter, cover back the watch and that's all.

    Note that you will apply force with the screw driver when you are trying to open the back cover of the watch.

    Good luck.

    Concord mariner sg battery size ?


    Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

    You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving in doing it yourself.

    Dead battery, how do I open?


    I believe a local watch repairer will replace the battery for around 5$ that should include the battery, depends on the person.

    Generally the battery is replaced by opening the back cover of the watch, in some cases special tools might be required.

    the details of the battery read on top the one currently inside it.

    I have a la scala tonneau women watch, the watch type is 0310702, i need to change a battery, but so many type and size of battery, which type and size watch battery is the right one?


    The battery has its identification number on it, so if you remove the back of the watch you should be able to read the type without stopping the watch.

    Or you could take it to a watch shop, who will have a stock of batteries. Removing and replacing the back of a watch sometimes takes some practice and I advise you to give the job to an expert, especially if it is a water resistant type.

    I need a new leather band for my Concord watch.Where can I get one?Numbers on back of watch are14 25 1470.1 then under that 1261034.


    Concord is part of the Movado group. They do not sell replacement parts to just anyone. So if you want an original band you will need to take it to an Authorized Movado/Concord retailer. Or if you wanted to save some money you can take it to a watch repair business that sells and replaces watch bands. Speidel makes some really nice watch bands.

    The watch has a tiny screw holding the back of the watch. You must use a very small jeweler's screwdriver to open it carefully and replace the battery.
