Missing screw to hold band together need replacement


Most jewelry stores--or even jewelry counters in department and discount stores like Walmart--keep a supply of replacement screws for when one is lost while changing a watch band. Ask around, show them your watch, and you may even get the right screw for free!

Tip

Changing a watch battery.


If you don't have the proper watchmaker's tools (and you'll need several!) I recommend that you not do this yourself. You could scratch the case or damage the movement if you don't know what you're doing. If it's a water resistant watch the gasket also needs to be replaced once it is opened. DO NOT reuse a gasket! For about $8 any watch or jewelry2_bing.gif store can change the battery and renew the gasket for you. Most Sears stores will do it while you shop.

How to prevent water leaking inside,after replacing the batteries.. should i replace the gasket to? after replacing the batteries....


Normally gasket has not to be replaced after battery change.But all depends of the use.For example if you wear the watch in salt or pool water and never flash it with fresh, clean water after,it may be a cause of gasket wear.Remove the back cover.Replace all 4 batteries(be sure first that you can do this with extreme caution as all parts are tiny).Remove gasket.Check gasket condition(cracks,gasket too dry and hard).If gasket OK, apply a small amount of special silicon compound for watch gaskets,all around and to all sides of the gasket,put it back in place,carefully.Be sure that gasket is set correctly all around.Put the back cover in place and screw with much caution (not too tight-a little resistance).Your watch now normally is water resistant.But if you want to be 100% sure,take the watch to a serious repair center where it will be tested under pressure ( 3 Atm average).Then they will tell you if your watch is 100% water resistant.

I can't open the back of my watch to put a battery into it


If you don't have the right tools don't even try - you'll risk damaging your nice watch. Instead, take it to a watch shop or jewelry store (Sears does it too) and let them do it with the right tools, correct battery and - very important - a new gasket to keep it water resistant. Cost for the battery replacement is about $8.

Take it to a watch shopor jewelry store and they should be able to do it for about $8. If you do it yourself you'll need some specilaized tools to asvoid damaging the watch and a new gasket for the caseback to keep it water resistant. The old gasket cannot be reused even if it looks ok. Once the gasket has been compressed it will leak if reused.
