I would suggest that we follow the jeweler advise, unless he/she is lazy or not really a master, then their advise is critical.

Rather than breaking into home repair that can end in home destruction, contact the manufacturer and see what services they offer. One way or another you will be taken care of....

Have a great day!

Watch battery for anne klein 10-6927 watch


If you are unable to open your watch, take it to a jeweler who, for a reasonable sum, will replace the battery. Make note of the battery type for future replacement.

How do you get battery out of watch? Do I have to take out all screws and remove top piece?


The back of the watch has six rectangular notches around the edge. Using a jeweler's case wrench and 4-pin vise to hold the watch align the three teeth of the watch to three of the notches on the back and turn counter-clockwise. Considering that the tools alone are going to cost you a minimum of $30 - $40, and then you'll have to purchase a battery for $5 - $7, I'm going to recommend that you have the battery professionally replaced for $10 - $15 at your local jeweler. Keep in mind, I'm also considering the fact that you suggested dismantling the watch in order to change the battery. This is obviously an indication that you have no experience in the most basic servicing of a timepiece and to ensure that your timepiece isn't damaged, you really should leave this to a professional.

Unable to replace the back of the Fossil JR-9387 mens watch after replacing the batteries - can you tell me how to click it back into place?


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
This can be tricky. You may need to take to a store that has a watch press for replacing backs. Square watches are particularly tricky. I hope you were pushing the back on by pressing on sides of watch and not center as this may have warped it to not fit.
Best bet is a local repair.
Sorry.

I cant seem to find a good pic of this watch anywhere!
Is it one where the leather band goes behind the watch?? You will have to remove the pins (at least one) to get to the back.
Sorry.
I would take to a local jeweler if its more difficult then that.

I have a Caravelle Bulova watch #48G33 and I need to change the battery. I took it to a jeweler and he mess up the back and told me he did not have a battery that fit. I think he was unable to get the back...


Hey there !
if the back has a notch on the top left of the cover (right underneath to what would be 10'oclock position), it is a 'Pop-up'. But if the watch has 6-8 notches on the back plate of the watch its a screw-off.
Its really hard to say what battery size it would take due to the fact that each watch has a different operating mechanism and its hard to determine that from the model number.

Phillipe Stark PH1079 watch - Can't get back off to replace bat


There is nothing wrong with your watch. The problem is in tools the jewellers are using for opening the watch.
Despite being under one roof, watchmaking and jewellery are completely different trades and are miles apart. Jewellers usually are equipped with very basic watch repair tools and the case openers are no exeption.
You have to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for watchmaker, not jeweller. Any decent watchmaker will have the right tool to open your watch and replace the battery in a matter of minutes.
Do not forget to rate, please.
