Question about Giorgio Armani Watches

2 Answers

After replacing battery can't get the backplate of AR0156 back.

I replaced the battery of Empori armani AR0156. The problem is that I am not able to fix the back plate as easily as i could remove it. On placing the backplate, I can place it on either the top or bottom but the other side wont snap. I made sure that The backplate is aligned properly. It just wont snap. Any leads or tips would be appreciated.

If you cannot snap the back on with your fingers the only safe way to get the back on again is to use a watch press. This is an expensive tool that most jewelers will have. I strongly recommend you take it to a jeweler (may want to call first to make sure their company will do it because most chain stores will not work on most brands). They should not charge you.
If you are determined to do it yourself then you can try wrapping a wide pliers with duct tape or cloth and applying pressure on the front and back of watch to pop it on. WARNING: this is very dangerous for your watch. DO NOT apply pressure to the crystal, try to put the pressure on the stell lugs instead...

Simplest way to do it is. Get a rolling pin and towel. Fold the towel in half , place the watch facing down on the towel, get the rolling pin and pressure on the back plate with a lot of weight and it should click back in.

Has worked on mines.

SOURCE: SEKONDA: HOW DO YOU REPLACE THE SNAP ON BACK COVER?

Sorry, but your hands (especialy fingers) aren't strong enough. Nothing personal- just confirming the fact. My hands can handle 50 ATM casebacks, but I would say this is more expierence than strength.
OK, back to business: align the winder groove first and make sure this side of caseback sits in properly in case. Then use your thumbs to push the opposite side of caseback in, supporting the watch by your palms and knees. Do not try to push the caseback in bit by bit going all around the caseback. This sort of action will never work.
So, align the groove, support your palms by the knee(s) and push the opposite (to the groove) side of the caseback in to the watch case by one, but strong attempt with your thumbs. It should snap in.
If this doesn't work, you will need to ask the watchmaker to close the watch.
NB: Watchmakers are using specialized press for closing watch cases wich do not require any strength at all.

Rate me, please.

SOURCE: watch battery replacement

I have a Timex Expedition Indigo with a metal case. Not sure of the exact model number but on the back there an M6 below Expedition. Anyway, I had the same problem of snapping the back back on. I found a "battery" website that had some suggestions that should be typical of any snap back case watch. http://www.online-batteries.co.uk/whichbattery.shtml specifically they said that when you try to press the back on it must be flat (not one edge down as I had been trying) Put the watch face down on a non scratch surface and press with both thumbs evenly. If that doesn't work a press will be needed. If you have a vice a couple of blocks of wood to distribute the load on the front and back may work, otherwise take it to a jeweler with the proper equipment. The thumb routine didn't work for me. I have a vice but figured many wouldn't so I tried something else first. I put the watch face down on a piece of wood. I found a small 2" long scrap of wood (3/4" x 1.5" approx) that spanned the back. I centered the back (aligned properly) placed the block of wood squarely and centered across the back and tapped the end of the block with a hammer. First try didn't work, second one did. I used a rubber mallet as the hammer but a regular hammer or other heavy object would work. The trick, I think, is to get everything lined up and square so the blow is centered and even. Also, I'd suggest cleaning the back and the groove in the case and be sure the rubber gasket is properly positioned. This will give you the best chance of retaining the waterproofing. And remember to check that the watch is running before you do this. Some need to be reset (usually with a very small screwdriver or pin) after replacing the battery. There should be a small hole with some printing next to it. You may need a magnifying glass to see/read it. Good Luck, Richard

SOURCE: The back doesn't seem to want to snap back in

Try a very small dab of a very light lubrican on the sealing edges.

If you haven't already tried it, press the edge of the watch back using two fingers and move them appart until they meet again.

Season with a lot of parience... good luck!

Is there a video for removing back of Emporio Armani AR 0540?


I wouldn't want to risk scratching up the back of an Armani. If you have a watch repair shop near you, it's better to take it there. I've taken several down for battery replacements, etc. and it has cost between $7-20, battery included. That said, I did find a video, but it's not for the exact Armani model and they used professional tools to do it. I saw another video where you could use standard tools, but you run the risk of gauling the metal on your watch in the process.

Hi, I got the Georgio Armani AR0156 watch today as a present. It is not working, I'm not sure but the battery seems to be dead, which is a bit odd since I only recieved it this morning, what do you thinks...


It might be that the watch was running when packed and it has been in stock for some time.

On the other hand there might be an insert between the crown wheel and the body to prevent it accidentally starting. Have you looked closely at this point?

If you can't find anything, then is should go back to the supplier (they may need proof of purchase).

Beep and chime will not work


I think there would have been a minute spring coming from the back of the watch module to the backplate of the watch - this spring carried a vibration / beep which echoed off the backplate. Chances are you have damaged this spring during battery change - as i did with my gShock. Basically it's nackered!
