W to changebattery #65041g

Changing the battery on most watches is fairly straightforward and needs only the usual tiny screwdriver, insulated tweezers and a large measure of patience and good eyesight.
The main problem is usually opening the case and in the case of a quality watch that is guaranteed waterproof it really should be returned to the manufacturer for battery fitting and pressure testing. If testing isn't carried out after the case has been opened the watch realistically then becomes merely water resistant rather than waterproof.

Usually it is the back of the watch case that must be opened and in the case of ordinary non-waterproof and non-water resistant types it is a simple matter to prise the back off with a thin blade and then refit it with finger pressure.
Water-resistant watch cases that have a priseable back often need the back pressing back on with force supplied either by a purpose-made press or a large bench vice. In both cases adapters are needed to prevent damage to the case and the crystal.

A lot of watches have a back that unscrews and strictly a dedicated key, wrench or spanner is needed for this task. I have managed to overcome this problem a number of times by pressing other tools "that look as if they might do the job" into service. I cannot say what it was I used as I wandered around my workshop just trying things. I think the last time a particular circlip plier did the trick.

Simpler to take the watch and have someone else replace the battery I think.

How do you take the back of a wrist watch off so you can change the battery

The Proper way is with a "watch case wrench". They can be purchased for a few dollars on Amazon and E-bay. In most cases unless you are changing many watch batteries the best option is to call around to local jewelers and pawn shops and ask how much to replace a watch battery. In my town it ranges from $30 to as little as $5.99 battery included.

Changing the battery in a mickey mouse pocket watch

The first answer is a canned answer. Seen it before. Examine the edge of the pocket watch. Start at the stem and look for a slight gap where the back cover meets the case. It is usually at the stem side or hinge side. Once located take a strong sharp knife and carefully pry up the back cover. It should remove fairly easily. I have about 12 pocket watches and they all work the same way. Once open there may be a small screw or two holding the battery in place. You will need a precision screw driver set or a small screw driver for glasses.

Is it possible to change the battery on the Technomarine 10900 at home (with the proper tools) or do I need to get it to a repair centre?

It is possible. Open the watch case back, memorize all the writings on watch battery as well as how the battery is positioned (+ and -). Buy exactly the same battery, replace it and close the case back. To be sure case back is closed as tight as it was, draw fine line across the case and case back with non-permanent marker. This will help you align when closing the watch and you can clean it off later. Rate me, please.

I have a Geneve watch and need to change the battery. The case seems to have no way of opening it and seems to be one piece and I took it to the jewelers and they can't replace the battery. Is there any...

Of course, there is the way to change the battery, but for this you have to visit your closest watch repair shop. I do mean WATCH REPAIRS, not the jewellers. Decent watchmaker will definitely open your watch and will replace the battery. Your watch's case appears to be a monoblock. That means you'll need to lift the crystal first, pull the stem second and just then you'll be able to extract watch's movement for replacing battery. Do not forget: jewellers and watchmakers are under one roof, but their trades are completely different. No jeweller can do watchmakers job and vice versa. Rate me, plz.

Open the watch case back, release the upper contact (unclip or unscrew it), memorize the writings on battery and the way the battery was placed in. Buy exactly the same battery, insert the same way in and close watch case back. Reset the watch and you are done. Some watches need a shortcut to be made before resetting. This should be written on the label covering the battery. Rate me, plz.

How can I change the battery in my Casio Oceanus Oc-501? What battery does it take please and do I need to reseal the back?

I dont recommend anyone change their own battery unless they have the proper tools to open and close it! If the case back unscrews then you need a case wrench...if it pops off with a knife then you will need a case press to close it or else risk breaking the crystal! Most require equal pressure around the entire edge of the case back! Save yourself time and frustration and possible damage and take it to a reputable watch repair shop!

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.
