Harbor Freight sells a watch repair kit that has the tools for screw back and snap back watches. They are less than 10 bucks and work great.

I need to change the batteries and i cant get thhe back off


mcdevito75 here, Croton, a high quality watch, Best Bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change, these quartz movements can easily be destroyed with mis-handleing and anyway a battery lasts at least 1 year.

Hi-cant get the back off my M&S watch to change battery?


The slots are intended for a special tool.

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.

There is a small groove between watch case and case back. This is the place where to insert the openers blade and pry up.

Cant open my rolex daytona watch


To open a Rolex watch you need a special Rolex tool to unscrew the case back. They are really on tight and the wrong tool can cause damage. Why mess up a good watch? Once you get in there, what do you hope to do? Change a battery? Nope they don't have one. So please take that fine watch to someone that really knows what to do'

After changing the battery nothing can be changed, no function possible and"open" remains written on the display, the type of the battery is clt 1616


The battery is CTL 1616 and I had the same occurance when I opened up my model Casio model 3043. I needed to use the battery to test my model 2767 and find out if a new battery would bring it back to life (yes, it still lives). After replacing the battey back into my 3043, I jumped the (ac) to (-) and at first the watch would indicate all was well but then it would revert back to "open". I tried over and over to try and get the "open" display to clear but I was not successful. I then thought to go ahead and replace the back on the case to see if the three contact springs would change the display and sure enough, "open" no longer was in the display. The watch works perfectly as before. As for the 2767, as soon as I jumped the (ac) to (-) the "open" display went away. There is only one spring contact to the back case on the 2767 model. Unfortunately I do have an extra spring that fell out when I opened it up and I have no clue as to where it goes. I have not found anyone who can help me on the location for the shorter spring. Any advice would be most helpful.

Battery....can I get a battery replacement anywhere?


Most Skagen watches have a snap-in, snap-out back. You will need a tool to open the back such as a slotted jeweler's screwdriver or knife blade to pry it open. Be careful opening the back as the battery may pop out. Examine and make note of which side of the battery is up. Get the number off the battery, or take the battery with you to Wal-Mart, Radio Shack or anywere else they sell batteries. Buy a replacement, install it, and try to reinstall the back. You may even consider taking the watch with you to the above retailers...some of them are willing and able to change the battery for you.

My watch needs a new battery.


There is a tool that you need that adjusts to the three holes or openings in the back of your watch and it just screws off. If you don't have access to the tool, simply take two push pins and CAREFULLY insert them into the openings and unscrew the back cover. Remember that it unscrews counter-clockwise.This will give you access to the battery simply take it out and go to the store to buy a replacement repeat the process to install the cover back on.
