SOURCE: How do I take the

Locate a very small tab (or recessed area) on the edge of the back cover. This is the access point for removal. You can find this sometimes by running your fingernail around the back rim, as this tab or indentation can be hard to see.

  • 2Pull out the stem, which releases the back on some watches.
  • 3Get a small flathead screwdriver it needs to be a thin inflexible tip. Use a kitchen knife as a last resort. Wrap the hand you are holding the watch with in a towel or protect your hand in some manner so you don't injure yourself if the screwdriver/knife slips.
  • 4Very 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.
  • 5Get under the tab or recessed area and gently but firmly turn the blade upward, popping the cover off.
  • 6When you replace the cover, make sure you line up the stem slot on the cover with the stem of the watch.

    What size battery goes in a Relic wet ZR15373. Help please

    If you don't want to remove the back of the watch yourself, take it to a jewellers shop and ask them to help. They will remove the back, replace the battery and they should give you the number of the battery so you know for next time.

    Where to find batteries for relic watches?

    Relic watches use common internal movements and common batteries. They can be found at most drugstores, radioshack and jewelry stores. The trick is getting the back off without damage. Best bet, jewelry store.

    I'm from India and I have an Relic (Bought from US) the same model but in silver color. Its been almost two years and it is stopped. Whether battery needs to be changed or anyother problem? If I want to...

    Most probably its battery problem. You can go to any reputed (Titan, Timex) watch showroom and get its battery replaced. They will change the battery immediately.

    Don't get the battery replaced from the small watch repair shops. They don't have original batteries, so your battery will not last long.

    Hope it helps. Don't forget to rate me. Thanks for using FixYa.

    What battery is the replacement? Relic ZR11622

    Thank you FixYa.
    Look on the back of the watch, or in the manual. If it doesnt say the battery size you will need to take to jeweler to have them measure the compartment to see what battery is needed. Sorry but no other way to know the battery needed.
    Best regards. Jewel

    Does not run. does this watch have a battery in it?

    There are two types power sources for watches. Automatic and battery.
    Automatic needs to be either wound by the crown (winder on the side) or wound by the movement of the wrist while it is worn.
    The battery powered is self explanatory.

    Since you didn't include the model it's difficult to say for sure because Relic makes both automatics and battery powered watches. Although I can tell you is most automatics will clearly labeled. If your watch say automatic somewhere on the face or back you need to contact Relic for service because your watch has a 12 year warranty.

    To prevent violating your warranty a jeweler should be the one who replaces the battery if it is battery power.
    I included the link to Relic watches below for info on the warranty and instructions.
    Hope this helps.

    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.

    Relic Wet watch

    Like many other watches, the Relic Wet's battery can't be changed by the owner. It requires a Jeweler's wrench. Said wrench has prongs that fit into the 6 indentations on the back of the watch. The wrench is than used to unscrew the back plate, exposing the battery. Any reputable jewelry store will have one.
