    I would like to add that in last week the Sector 255 men's watch kept its time precisely to a single second.

Take your watch to a jeweler who will open it and identify the battery type.

    OMG! Not useful! I have ordered the $7 tool to unscrew the back and wanted to order the battery at the same time. Jeweler charges x4 for the same and does not bother to clean and seal the watch. Doing this yourself it trivial with the right tool, else you risk scratching the watch.

SOURCE: I need a sector watch expert.

There are no bad motions for watches - they are designed to withstand all motions, except very hard knok/hit.
You do not need a Sector watch expert, as all watch brands use movements made by few manufacturers and all decent watchmakers know them from A to Z. Only very expensive watch manufacturers produce their own in-house movements - Sector is not in that league.
Contact that shop and ask for full explanation what and why went wrong.

Rate me, please.

As there is no manual downloads possible for SECTOR watches, the only solution is to contact SECTOR directly. Of course you can browse all the internet, but I'm quite sure direct contact will save you nerves, time and money.

I am needing to find out what kind or size battery The Fossil Blue AM-3574 takes and where I can purchase them.

The vast majority of Fossil analog wristwatches take either a #377 or #379 watch battery. The #379, being slightly smaller, is somewhat more commonly found in women's watches than in men's watches, but I have seen both types used in men's and women's watches alike.
These batteries are commonly found at many drug stores, jewelry store counters at places like Walmart and Target, and even at some dollar stores. Be aware that cheap dollar store batteries are usually alkaline, not silver oxide, versions of the same size battery. Alkaline batteries may work perfectly well in many watches, but they have a somewhat different energy performance curve over time, and, in general, they won't last quite as long as a comparable silver oxide battery. In addition, for reasons I've never been able to figure out, some of the Fossil watches that I've serviced would not function with an alkaline battery--but would work fine when I put in a silver oxide battery of the same size and voltage. I have not been able to see a pattern to predict when this will and will not occur.
As a final thought, the backs of some Fossil watches are very snugly fitted to their cases. You can generally get them off without too much of a problem, but there's a good chance you may need a jeweler's press to get them to snap back on properly. I've noticed this most with round watch backs; I generally haven't needed a press to close oblong or tonneau-shaped Fossil watches (or some round watches, too). A jeweler's press spreads the pressure evenly around the edges of the watch back and watch case, preventing damaging pressure on the watch crystal, watch movement, and watch back. Clamping the watch in a regular vise to try to press on the back runs a high risk of damaging your watch, and I do not recommend trying that, no matter how frustrated you get. It's much safer (and cheaper, overall) to tip someone with a vise a couple of dollars to close up your watch for you.
