Are you able to slide the metal casing sideways? I think it should just slide sideways. Good Luck!

Good luck and be carefull.

How to remove back to change battery in "My Wish" Collezioni watch. No notch for knife and won't screw off.


You should be able to pry it off, just follow this simple steps:
Locate a very small tab (or recessed area) on the edge of the back cover. Pull out the stem, which releases the back on some watches.Get a small flathead screwdriver it needs to be a thin inflexible tip. Very carefully slide the blade under the tiny metal protrusion on the back cover (or across the length of the recessed area, depending on which type of cover your watch has). When you replace the cover, make sure you line up the stem slot on the cover with the stem of the watch. These steps are listed on wikihow:

I recently changed the battery on my casio 437 watch and now it won't turn on


There is a 437 stamped into the back of the case for one of the two versions (437 and 438) of Casio WR watches, with the 437 being the kind with raised rubbery number buttons. The model no. for the 437, also on the back case is CA-53W, useful for ordering parts (see below). These instructions are for the 437 but should be useful in many cases for other Casio watches, with numbers other than 437 or 438 on the back of the case. For example, the resetting process described in step 5 below appears to be common to many if not all Casio watches. There is no manual on the casio.com website for many watches, including the 437 and 438. There are no instructions for changing the watch battery in the manual for the 437 or 438 either, nor for many if not all Casio watches. If there is a 438 stamped on the back of the case, the chip is the same as on the 437. The buttons on the face of the 438 watch are flat plastic rather than raised and rubbery. The two buttons near the top serve the same function on the 438 watch as the right side buttons on the 437. The left top button on the 438 corresponds to the top right side of case nonindented button on the 437. The right top button on the 438 corresponds to the bottom right side of case lower indented button on the 437. Save time and money by replacing the battery yourself If you send your Casio watch off to have the battery replaced, it will likely cost you about $30 USD. Many jewelers will routinely send a Casio watch off for battery replacement rather than replace the battery themselves, so these instructions may help save you from delays and expense if you do it yourself. Likewise, jewelers may find these instructions useful for satisfying customers by replacing the battery on the spot rather than having to send the watch off to Casio. Materials needed a. 5/64" Phillips head screwdriver (A set of different size screwdrivers in a small black plastic case, including the 5/64" was bought for $1 USD at a local Dollar Tree store in the USA.) b. Watch battery identically numbered to the dead battery on the watch (2016 on 437 case back number) c. Metal tweezers to reset the watch d. Sil glyde gel grease or any other grease, to maintain water resistance f. Toothpick or similar to spread grease in O ring slot g. Ziplock plastic bag or bowl to hold the 4 small screws so they don't get lost Instructions on replacing the battery and resetting the watch 1. Take off 4 back screws, using the 5/64" Phillips head screwdriver. One screw was balky and needed to have the screwdriver handle attached to a vise grip pliars, with the watch held in the other hand and rotated. Putting the screwdriver handle in a vise would also work to stabilize the screwdriver, while turning the watch held in one hand. Set the 4 small screws aside in a ziplock bag or bowl. 2. Remove the red cellophane cover on the battery, held by two tabs cut into the cellophane fitting into a slot on the metal hold down battery strap atop the battery. 3. With a fingernail or toothpick (nothing metal), slide the battery to the side, out from under the metal hold down strap atop the battery. 4. Insert new battery with fingers/fingernails, sliding it into place from the side. The side, with the battery number showing (2016 on 437 case back number) faces outward, just as on the removed battery before it came out. The watch will continue to appear dead, with nothing showing on the display until the electronics are reset in step 5. 5. Reset the electronics by using a pair of metal tweezers to simultaneously touch with metal, the outward facing side of the battery, and the brass terminal in an indentation in the plastic about 4 o'clock and about 1/8" outside the battery diameter. To aid in orientation, there is a barely visible small AC (presumably meaning "all clear") pressed into the metal near the battery and the indented brass terminal at about 4 o'clock. It may be necessary to tilt the watch in the light so the light strikes the AC so it becomes visible. Verify the display is working. Resetting the time will be in step 11. 6. Reinsert the red cellophane cover removed in step 2. It may be necessary to slide a knife or similar between the strap holding the battery down, and the battery, to make room for the two cellophane tabs to be inserted in a small air space between the strap and the battery. (When installed, the cellophane tabs do not prevent current from flowing between the top of the battery and the battery hold down strap.) If you use a knife or other metallic object to open up the strap to battery space to allow entrance of the cellophane tabs, take care not to short the battery against metal parts of the watch other than the hold down strap. Quickly glance to see make sure the display is still working after the cellophane is back in place. If display not working, repeat steps 2, 5 and 6 (remove cellophane, reset watch, reinstall cellophane). 7. Remove the rectangular O ring from the case back removed in step 1, or the case, and coat it with Sil Glyde silicone gel grease or similar, to retain water resistance. White grease or any grease should also work. Set the coated O ring on the inside of the metal case back removed in step 1. The O ring will eventually mate back with the O ring slot in the plastic case. 8. Using a toothpick or similar, coat the rectangular O ring slot in the plastic case with the same grease used to coat the O ring in the metal case back, to provide extra water resistance. Grease is nonconductive, so there should be no damage from shorting if some of the grease gets inside the watch. 9. Wipe hands clean and wash hands and/or use plastic gloves to avoid putting too much grease on the outside of the watch. 10. Replace case back removed in step 1. Screw in the 4 removed screws with your 5/64" Phillips head screwdriver.

How do you change battery on E Howard wrist watch, how does bach come off?


The back does not come off (case is in one piece); it's the bezel -- the metal rim that holds the front glass crystal.

There is a small notch in the rim of the bezel (on mine, this aligned with the 'lower left' lug on the case around 7:00 on the face). Be careful as there is an O-ring to waterproof the watch, and this notch goes right into the groove where that O-ring is located. Use a case knife or similar stiff but fairly thin-edge blade to pop the bezel off (it snaps off). Then gently remove the outer plastic ring, noting carefully how the notches are aligned.

The inner module now can be lifted carefully out - the two 'pushers' will not fall out of the case when you do this. The battery is a 3V lithium CR2025, and you will need a fairly small straight-blade jeweler's or optician's style screwdriver to remove the one screw that holds down the battery bracket - it may be tempting to bend this out of the way to change the battery, but please resist that temptation...

Put the module back in the base, put the ring back over the dial plate, and carefully snap the bezel back in place with its notch aligned as you found it. You might want to check and/or lubricate the O-ring as you do this.

Instructions for initializing the movement are printed inside the case: they list the switch for the 'recessed' button as A, and the pusher as B. In case you didn't note them before closing the case: to reset:

1) push A once. (Display will read "SET"
2) Push A until hands are exactly on 12:00 (and display reads "12"
3) Push B once to start reception

You then follow the standard procedure of putting the watch in a window facing Fort Collins, Colorado, until it picks up the time signal and synchronizes itself.

If you need more assistance with the physical module, there is contact information on it from its manufacturer:

Model number on my module is AR600 WWVB (37.5mm)

Need to replace battery in my Colibri pendant watch. Can't figure out how to open case to change it.


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • Place the tip of your pocket knife in the slot on the back of the watch. Pry the back off.

  • Take your tweezers and grasp the metal piece that is hiding the battery.

  • Once that metal piece is out the battery should come out too.

  • Put the new battery in and cover it with the metal piece.

  • Put the back of the watch back on and snap it into place.


  • Best wishes. Jewel

    How do you change the battery on an ebel watch


    Unscrew or pry off the case back. Remove the metal strap holding the battery in place. Sometimes you have to remove screw in the metal strap. Look on the battery for the type and order by that number. Put back in with fingers or plastic tweezers. Do not use metal tweezers as it will short the battery.

    WHAT TOOL DO I NEED TO REMOVE THE BACK OF FOSSIL BLUE #BQ-9232 AND HOW AVAILABLE ARE THE BATTERIES FOR REPLACEMENT?


    Most watch backs either screw off with a special case opener that every wachmaker uses or pried off with a knife like case opener or sometimes a knife. Take this to your local watchmaker for battery replacement. Batteries are readily available but are a bit tricky to install properly and are best installed by a qualified watchmaker.

    Timex expedition compass battery replacement?


    hi
    i am not an expert in this particular case but i followed theses below steps . here are they.....

    Unscrew the case back with a case back tool (aka Jaxa wrench) which engages
    the notches in the case back. I'm assuming the watch has a screw back - if
    it has notches it does. Pop out the old battery.

    In some watches you have to
    unscrew a clip but in most the battery pops right out. Examine movement for
    evidence of battery leakage or other damage. Carefully clear away any crud
    at the edge of the case - the tiniest metal shaving will short out the coil.
    Install new battery of same type. Handle new battery with non-metal tweezers
    or rubber gloves, never bare fingers. Inspect case back gasket or preferably
    just replace it with new o-ring of same size. Gasket should be lubricated
    with silicone grease. Reinstall case back using wrench. If you are
    concerned with water resistance the watch needs to be tested in a pressure
    test machine. I'm sure the pros have more tips but this should suffice for a
    Timex where it would not be a big loss to damage or break the watch.

    i hope you can successfully replace the battery
    thank you
