How do i change the battery in a Gucci 2400 L watch?

Hello Jeneane Blacine,

Beautiful watch...

A picture of the BACK-SIDE would allow me a better GUESS.

I am purely an amateur horologist (all personal opinions)...
Like... a 5x jewelers loupe works fine for battery changing.

I did look for your battery number.. but found no references.

The American Watch Institute (AWI) produces a book that lists every battery and cross references GLOBAL numbers from the VARIOUS manufactures...

Once I open a watch...
I always write down THAT WATCH and Battery NUMBER and keep it with that pamphlet
(about $5 in 1998 - 2000 edition).

I start with an soft bristle brush (tooth brush works fine) & carefully go all over the watch cleaning every crack, joint & crevice... followed by a soft clean cloth to polish the case. Once I am confident nothing will be introduced into the watch... I open the case (table top, good light. jewelers loupe, case cracker , jaxa (style) wrench or jewelers screw-drivers... really nice forceps above a clean floor... (a screw WILL GET AWAY ...a flash light across the surface of the floor... will cast a decent shadow... or (my mother advised me to use of a lady's stocking over the vacuum nozzle also worked (she was a very smart lady)).

Some watches have press in backs... some secure with screws... a lot of round body watches actually have screw in covers...

They are all different (certainly delicate).

After taking a couple of our watches to the PROFESSIONALS
only to see the gouge & scratch the cases... I figured I would scratch much less (& free)... As the decades have passed ... I can get in & out.. just fine.

Acceptable quality tools are available on-line... and a little patience
will make your cases last longer... As for their water "resistance"...
THAT'S A WHOLE other article... Suffice it to say... I do a better jo than the battery guy at the strip mall ...

Better tools produce better work... but it is the skilled touch of a caring hand that guarantees the best results... No mater who they are... everybody needs to start at the beginning.

Good luck...

I have a oniss ceramic dark blue divers watch on8015-MRG. The jeweler can not get one screw out of the back, what can I do?

The jeweller does not have enough tools and or skills to repair the watch. A real watch maker should be able to remove it, even if he broke it. He could even repair the "damage" of a broken screw. Question is, are you prepared to pay for the work, because the job could take over one hour. Use Google to find a watch repair shop close to you.

Just to know to open up the back of this Lorus watch, to replace the cell ?

Watch backs open three ways, the first way is 1) by small screws you will see them and need to remove them carefully as not to strip the screw head, if there are no small screws the watch could have 2) a screw back, it will have indentations evenly spaced all the way around the back, if it is a screw back it has to go to a jeweler or watch repair for removal with a special tool. You must eliminated 1 and 2, then 3) would be a pop off back, you look around the edge of the back for one indentation along the back of the watch, use a pocketknife to gently pop the back loose. I hope this helps! thank you!

I have a gametime watch and can't get the back off to change the battery. How do I do this?

Watch backs come off several ways, the most obvious would be screws you would see the screws be very careful not to strip them, the next way is screw off backs there would be even indentations all the way around back where the tool inserts to unscrew the back, if it is screw off you need to go to your local jeweler. The third way is just pop off, you need to make sure edges of watch around back lid are clean (you can do this with a tooth brush) and then look for a lifting spot a small indentation sometimes very hard to find! Use the blade of a pocket knife to gently pry it up it will make a popping sound when it comes off. good luck i hope this helps !!

How to change battery

  • Spread the towel out on a flat surface.
  • Remove the watchband if necessary in order to access the back of the watch.
  • Unscrew the back protector from the watch using the correct size miniature screw driver. Place the screws in a small pile on the towel. Be careful not to drop them as they are difficult to find.
  • Remove the back plate by unscrewing the small screws. There is a tiny spring on the underneath of the back plate. It may be visible, or not. Make sure not to turn the watch upside down or the spring will dislodge.
  • Remove the rubber protector to find the battery.
  • Use sharp point tweezers to remove the clasp covering the battery. There is a small hole at one end of the clasp. Insert one end of the tweezers into the hole to spring the clasp loose.
  • Remove the old battery with tweezers.
  • Insert New Battery and Reassemble Watch
  • Pick up the new battery using regular tweezers and put it into place. Do not touch the battery with your fingers.
  • Replace the clasp over the top of the new battery.
  • Perform a reset by touching the AC contact with one part of the tweezers and the back of the battery with the other part. Hold for a few seconds. Lift the watch carefully and look up at the front to make sure the watch is working. Do not turn the watch over.
  • Replace the rubber cover.
  • Replace the back plate by screwing the small screws back into place.
  • Replace the back protector by screwing the small screws back into place.
  • Reattach the watch band to the watch face.

  • Feel a bit unnerved by this? Find a local jeweler. Best regards.

    Two weeks after buying the watch it just stopped the jeweler thinks it might be that the second hand is getting stuck

    Depends on the kind of watch. If it is a quartz watch it could be the battery.

    If it is a mechanical it has a more serious problem. A new watch most likely will not have a problem with a hand touching unless the watch has taken a great fall and the hands are jarred enough to misplace them. Of course this kind of fall will cause other damage.

    Seriously, most jewelers don't know what a watch is let alone how it works or what could be wrong with it. Have a watchmaker look at it and they can give you real information.

    Hope this helps.
