Cannot open L.A.M.B. locket watch to change battery

I took my watch to a watch shop. They tried for over 2 hrs to open the watch to change the battery. They could not get it open. The man who worked there said it was the first watch he could not open ever. Does anyone know if there is a special way to change the battery?
Thanks in advance

SOURCE: Battery Change on T-Touch

there usually is an AC contact point to reset digital watches. Touching the + and the ac point with a conductive wire usually resets the watch. Not sure about the spring- I'm not going to open my Tissot up unless I have to.

SOURCE: why is my ironman draining my battery?

Over time the circuitry in a watch can become worn and corroded.  This corrosion is usually barely noticeable.  More often, you won't be able to see much damage at all.  Nonetheless, the circuit is worn and is giving too much resistance to the battery.  This is cause the battery to pump too much voltage into the circuit just to run the watch.  This is draining your watch very quickly.  This is more common as the watch gets older.

SOURCE: How do I open my watch to replace the battery. Looks as if I need a special gadget.

Get a small screwdriver and a file, file the end of the screwdriver down to a fine edge, thin enough to fit the narrowest gap, then carefully lever the case open. Try to avoid being heavy handed, you do not want to scratch the watch when doing this. HTH.

Casio says open

The open code is saying that your case isn't closed properly. Without seeing it, it's hard to tell if you opened/closed the case correctly. If you believe it is closed properly, look in your user manual and see if there is a master reset button and try that. Did you change the battery yourself or did you have a jeweler do it?

I have a Geneve watch and need to change the battery. The case seems to have no way of opening it and seems to be one piece and I took it to the jewelers and they can't replace the battery. Is there any...

Of course, there is the way to change the battery, but for this you have to visit your closest watch repair shop. I do mean WATCH REPAIRS, not the jewellers. Decent watchmaker will definitely open your watch and will replace the battery. Your watch's case appears to be a monoblock. That means you'll need to lift the crystal first, pull the stem second and just then you'll be able to extract watch's movement for replacing battery. Do not forget: jewellers and watchmakers are under one roof, but their trades are completely different. No jeweller can do watchmakers job and vice versa. Rate me, plz.

The date will not change, it will with the crown but when i advance the hands it will not change.

Try to advance hands for full circle more (12 hrs more). If this does not work, then you will have to find your nearest watch repair shop, because one of the date change gear wheels is faulty.
Rate me, plz.

Can't open Geneve OGW154 gold wrist watch to replace the battery

You are right, this type of watch can be opened by lifting crystal and extruding the stem. As for lifting the crystal you need a specialized tool, there is no other way then to go and find your nearest watchmakers shop. If you will try to lift the crystal using knife or any other unspecified tool, you will damage the crystal. Even if you will be lucky enough to get it out without any damage, you will not be able to fit it back, because the watch crystal setting tool reduces the crystal diameter for easy fitting.
Best solution for you is to see the watchmaker and ask for help.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Which watch battery do I use?

There are lots of different size button batteries for watches. I work in a clock shop where we change batteries in watches and I have had people bring the watches into me without batteries and it is really a guessing game. A lot of watches take a #377 battery. You can try that or take it to a place that changes watch batteries and let them figure it out.
