Batteries are usually held in place by contacts. Contacts are screwed by the 1-2 small screws into the movement.
Some contacts are fixed by 'clip-on' assembly.
Depending on what type of contact you have: unscrew the screws or unclip the end of the contact- the battery will come loose.
In case if the battery still very tightly fit after releasing contact, get some sharp pointed tweezers and pry up the battery by force.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Blank displayI have tried to reset this with no success Any ideas will be gratefully welcome


Have you considered that a dead battery might be the cause of this. They don't last longer than a year. I would not attempt to change the battery on your own if you would miss this watch if you broke it. I change batteries nearly everyday and the digital ones are by far the most difficult. If you did change the battery on your own already the reason it is not working is because you negated to short the battery. Digital watches sometimes need to be shorted after a battery replacement to turn back on take a pair of metal tweezers and put one end on the positive side of the battery. Look for a little hole with a contact on it that's either A/C or reset. Put the other end of the tweezers here. If that doesn't work a tiny spring feel out of the watch is not replaceable and you must therefore replace the watch if that is the case. Hope this helps.

How do you take the back of a wrist watch off so you can change the battery


The Proper way is with a "watch case wrench". They can be purchased for a few dollars on Amazon and E-bay. In most cases unless you are changing many watch batteries the best option is to call around to local jewelers and pawn shops and ask how much to replace a watch battery. In my town it ranges from $30 to as little as $5.99 battery included.

How do you get the back off for new batt


Replacing a Raymond Weil watch battery should be performed by an authorized Raymond Weil dealer. Replacing the battery on contemporary Raymond Weils takes some skill because the case is pressurized on some models or contains a rubber gasket to keep it water-tight. If you determine your Raymond Weil watch has a pressurized case back, don't attempt a battery replacement. Take it to an authorized dealer. The warranty on a recently purchased Raymond Weil watch will be voided if you perform a battery replacement yourself. Replacing the battery yourself on older Raymond Weils without a warranty is an acceptable risk.

After purchase. i noticed the battery was weak. I have not been able to open the back cover.


If you have a problem with a new watch, return it to the seller. If you attempt any self repairs, you will invalidate the warranty.

Stuck second hand


You need a new battery, as there is not enough power to move both gears. You can send it back to Wenger and get battery replaced or just pop into your nearest watch repair shop and get it replaced. It will cost you $5.oo and will be done in 10 minutes time instead of months of waiting it back from Wenger. Rate me, plz.

How do change a battery of a watch?


If you do not have the proper tools,(proper tools are recommended) and depending on the type of backing, this may help you :

  1. Locate a very small tab (or recessed area) on the edge of the back cover. This is the access point for removal.
  2. Get a kitchen knife with a rigid blade. It doesn't have to be razor sharp, it only needs to be inflexible. You can also use a small fine screwdriver.
  3. Very carefully slide the blade under the tiny metal protrusion on the back cover (or across the length of the recessed area, depending on which type of cover your watch has). Do not attempt to insert the point of the knife. Use the length of the blade.
  4. Get under the tab or recessed area and gently but firmly turn the blade upward, popping the cover off.
  5. Locate your battery(Small round disc type) remove and check the numbers on it. Go to most any local dept. stores (Wal Mart, Target, Radio Shack, etc.) and purchase same.
  6. Install battery with numbers up.
  7. Place cover over watch, and snap back into place.
Hope this helps. If not, please let me know and I will get back to you.
