Question about Fossil Philippe Starck PH1035 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

Cannot set I have gone to many many different watch places/jeweler to have the battery replaced. Finally my town's most expensive jeweler was able to replace the battery; however, after that, none of the four buttons seems to work. I cannot change the time, I cannot see the backlight, or anything. I really like this watch and do not want to give it up. What hsould I do?

Every battery replacement includes watch reset as well. If it was not done properly by watchmaker, then you are eligible for full refund and even can ask to fix the watch, as it was in working order before you gave it to jeweller.
This will not solve the problem, but at least it will make you feel better.
Next time you need the battery replacement, find the nearest watchmakers shop - not the jeweller. They are usually under one roof, but the trades are completely different and no jeweller can do the watchmakers job, as this takes years of learning and training.

How do I put the back on a Movado watch


When I replaced the battery in my wifes' Movado, I discovered that replacing the back is dang near impossible by hand. I guess that is why jewelers in my area charge about $20 to do it, plus battery cost. Jewelers use a special tool called a watch press. I improvised with an Irwin clamp out of my workshop. Note that this clamp has rubber padded jaws, which help protect the watch. I centered the back carefully, and tightened the clamp slowly, and after a bit she popped right in. If you are not comfortable doing this, just pay a jeweler to do the job, because you can ruin an expensive watch if you are not very careful.

    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!!!! :)

    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.

    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.

    My Fossil watch, a basic Big Tic model, has stopped working. I guess it's a dead battery problem. Any ideas where I can buy a replacement, or will jewellers stock them? Thank you in advance for any help...


    Pretty much any place that changes watch batteries can help. I usually get mine replaced at the department store, but there are places out there that specialize in this and are probably less expensive.
