SOURCE: Cannot get the cover back on Fossil watch after changing battery

I used to work for the Fossil company for several years. This is the problem..NEVER replace the watch battery yourself. Why not you ask? There are tools that are made especially for taking the back off of the watch and putting it back on. Also, when the back of the watch is taken off, silicone is used to put a seal along the case and caseback, this is done to "re-seal" the watch so that water does not enter your watch. If you do it yourself you also void your warranty...you can either send in your watch back to the company or take it to your nearest Fossil location.

SOURCE: Mens Relic watch stopped working after battry change

I suggest that your watch has an oxidized contacts and electricity can not reach the movement.
Do as folloes:
Take out the batttery,
Clean (scrape) all battery related contacts till they are shiny (use hardened steel needle for that),
Use the dust blower to get rid off any tiny dust and dirt particles after cleaning,
Refit the battery back.
Now your watch should work again.
If all written above do not help, then there is a problem with your watch and you will need the help of the watchmaker.
Do not forget to rate, please.

SOURCE: watch battery replacement

I'm female and my solution reflects it. Couldn't get my husband's Timex back together after chaning the battery. I put the face down on some folded paper towel and put my rolling pin through the watch band where the wrist would go.. Making sure the back was centered, I pressed down hard on the rolling pin, then rolled it downward. It popped into place and my husband thought I was a genius.

Hello i have replaced the battery on my tissot t touch expert & display not working? Any suggestions. Battery was completely dead before change?


If the battery was dead too long the fumes from the battery might have damage the electronics and that's not good it will have to go back to tissot for a new movement What I'm going to tell u is very inportant. Never let a watch set dead I don't care if it's a windup or an automatic or even a battery watch. U must always keep the running because all the lubriactions will set up and not performed properly. Just like a car setting dead too kind In ur case the battery has cause the problem

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.

The display went blank, changing battery didn't bring it back to life. I have 2 of these watches and have successfully changed batteries before, despite the tricky process. is this watch dead?


Unless the new battery is dead that would explain it, but assuming the battery is good it indicates a failure in the electronic module and should be considered done.

Just change the battery on my Nike Anvil WC0020 watch and the alarm won't sound for the timer as well as the two alarm settings.


If you changed battery yourself, you've lost the tiny spring without noticing it. Carefully check around the place where you changed the battery. The spring itself is very, very tiny, so, be as concentrated as much as you can. That spring (coilspring named by watchmakers) transmits the signal from watch movement to the watch back cover where the sound membrane is located. In case if you find it, open the watch and insert that spring with the bent out end first in to the desired hole in watch movement (should be named COIL SPRING). After that re-assemble watch and the sound should work.

How can i tell a fake from authentic?


mcdevito75 here, Best Bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area, they can authenticate your Gucci watch for you. If you can, remove the back cover of your Gucci and record any and all numbers and other info off the watches movement itself then check online at Gucci.com. If your not familiar with watches, specially Gucci an expensive watch let a small watch repair shop remove the back cover and give you all info needed to authenticate the watch.

My battery wend dead. the store will not open the back of the watch to change it. how do i open the back to change the battery?


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
Most Skagen watches have a snap-in, snap-out back. You will need a case back opening tool ($3 to $14) or a slotted jeweler's screw driver or knife blade to pry it open. Do this over a counter or towel in case the battery pops out. Examine and make note of which side of the battery is up. Get the number off the battery, better yet take it with you to Wal-Mart, Radio Shack or anywere else they sell batteries. Buy a replacement, install it, and try to reinstall the back. Good luck!
Do not try placing your Skagen watch face down on a soft towel, on a hard surface, and then then try to mussle in the back, or tap it with a mall or hammer. You very likely will break the crystal.
Without a Case Closing Plier ($15 to $20) or a Case Closing Press ($15 to $50) you will not be able to get the back to snap back in. You could try a conventional vise and size some vinyl or plastic washer to to fit the bezel and protect the crystal/face of the watch, and some flat vinyl/plastic that covers the back of the watch. Align the front and back plastic pieces with the back, carefully insert it in your vice, and tighten until the back snaps in. This could be fatal if you mess up!
A simpler solution is to take your watch to a place that specializes in selling and servicing a variety of watches, hopefull Skagens, maybe a jewelry store, and have them replace the battery. They should have the closing tool and you can expect to pay $10 to $15 for the battery and installation.
If you like Skagens, you can go on-line and find the appropriate tools to do this. Or, pay the watch store. Many Skagens use up batteries at the rate of every 10 to 15 months. Also, you can look up Skagen on line and see if they will service your watch. They are located in Reno, Nevada

Watch going in reverse


There is no difference in watch batteries as they are produced by the certain standards. That means you have replaced the right battery.
The simplest solution would be re-replacing the battery. Just take the battery out and leave the watch without battery for 5 minutes, then put the battery back. Make sure the battery is fitted the right way (the + side usually facing up).
If this doesn;t help - let me know.

Rate, please.
