SOURCE: replace the back of a dkny watch after replacing the battery,

For closing your caseback you need the man with very strong hands first, but it might not work as some casebacks can be closed using special tools only.
Before you visit the watchmaker, try this: first of all open your bracelet by taking out spring lug. This will make more space at the back. Then take watch caseback and check for groove in it. Align that groove with stem (pin going into watch movement) and deepen grooved caseback side as it should be. Then without turning caseback apply great pressure with both hands to the watch(from caseback and dial sides). If hands are strong enough, caseback should snap on into place.
In case if it doesn't work, find a piece of thick leather (wide mens belt will do) and place it on completely flat surface (table top). Place the watch face down on that leather, adjust caseback groove with stem again and try to press caseback down with both hands, only this time using your weight.
If all mentioned above doesn't work- you have to go to see watchmaker.

Good luck.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: removing the back to change battery

The plastic wrist band doesn't have to be cut away. You need to dislodge the spring-loaded end of the pin from the hole in the plastic with the blade of a sharp thin knife.

The you proceed to lift one of the 4 snaps to open the cover. The battery is under a white translucent inside cover.

The original battery was Sony SR621SW.

Pay attention to the rubber seal ring when putting the watch back together.

On the omega constellation how do you get the back off to get the battery out?


Snap off or screw backs both need special tools to remove.
Simplest answer is take it to a watch maker or competent jeweller to replace the battery and if necessary re-seal the opening.

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!

    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.

    How to change battery on a swatch skin watch


    1. Place the watch in case holder. Place the watch in the case holder, if you have one. If you do not, place it on a soft cloth.
    2. Check for room to work. Check to see if there is room to attach the adjustable case wrench and rotate it 360 degrees. If not remove watch band.
    3. Remove case back. Fit the adjustable case wrench into the slots on the case back. Tighten it down until it is snug. Be careful not to slip with this tool as it can scratch the case back of your watch. Work slowly. When it is unscrewed gently pry up the case back taking great care not to damage the internal gasket. If the gasket gets damaged it will need to be replaced with the battery to retain water resistance.
    4. Remove battery. The battery will be held in place by some type of retention device. It will need to be removed. Some clips will be removed by using tweezers. Some clips may be moved using a screw driver, and some simply bend out of the way slightly. Remember how it was removed as it must be put back in place exactly for the circuit to be completed after battery change. If the clip is removed, place it and any screws in a paper cup to prevent loss. Remember how the battery was seated, plus (positive) side up or down etc. it needs to be replaced correctly to work.
    5. Test battery. Using the battery tester check the battery. If it is dead move to next step, if it is not take the watch to a jewelers for inspection.
    6. Clean and inspect battery box. Inspect the battery box the battery came out of. If there is corrosion take it to jewelers for inspection. If there is light dust it may be cleaned with a clean soft cloth.
    7. Buy battery. Use the numbers on the battery and buy a new one. Occasionally the number will be obsolete and you will be referenced to a replacement battery in the battery charts. This is the time to also replace the gasket if you need to. Check with a watch maker or jeweler, or the watch company to buy a replacement. We cannot stress enough how important this gasket is to a water resistant watch, without its integrity your fine watch may no longer be resistant.
    8. Replace battery. Using the plastic tweezers if you have them, or fingers wearing cotton gloves, replace the battery. Never use bare fingers as finger oils may corrode or short out the new battery. Carefully replace the retention device as it was remove.
    9. Replace case back. Make sure that the gasket is in place, and not pinched or caught in the case back when you set it in place. Screw down the case back using your fingers until it is tight and needs the case wrench. Attach case wrench as before and tighten down the case back.
    10. Reset and clean watch. Using the appropriate method reset the watch. Use the polishing cloth to clean off any dirt and finger prints.
    OR...take to your local jeweler/watchmaker who has the appropiate tools and let them do it for you!!!! :)

    How do i remove the back on my sekonda mens watch


    mcdevito75 here, Generally thr back is simply pryed off useing a sharp knife (steak) or with a case opener, or at times the back is screwed on, little square holes around the back of the watch require a special tool, or there may be 4 screws holding down the back to the case, even if you get the back off you may need Jewelers screwdrivers to remove / replace the battery. BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop in your area.
