Question about Watches
I have a Swiss Army watch Model 24228 and it needs a battery. Someone took out the original, so I don't know which one it takes.

Did you have the battery checked to see if it was bad a first? Take it to a Reputable watchrepair , and ask them to CHECK your battery NOT replace it. Alot of times your watch will have a mechanical problem which will make your watch look like it is o.k. once you replace the battery but, two weeks later the watch stops again because the battery has lost enough power to now stop the watch again. Also your watch may have a electrical problem which a battery will not solve the problem. The coil (the orange straight piece in the movement), or the curcit board could be bad. Always have the store check your battery because, if you ask them to change your battety they will no matter if your original battery is good or not.

If qz. see previous answer. If it's mechanical and absolutely all the moisture is not eradicated then rust may begin to form and will over time cause damage. So if it's mechanical take it to a watchmaker for servicing asap.
Please rate my solutions.

Save yourself the time and frustration and take it to a reputable watch repair shop and let them adjust your band for you. Could be screws or could be pins! Plus if anything small drops you might not find it again!

The back will either have a small slot on one edge to pry it off or indentations around the perimeter for a case wrench to unscrew it. Specialized tools are used to avoid scratching the case. You best bet is to take it to a watch shop and let them do it. Most places charge between $3 - $8 to properly do it without damaging the case and they should also change the gasket to maintain water resistance if so equipped. Once you have it open you risk damaging the movement as you change the battery. It's not that it's a tricky procedure but you can easily damage something that will cost a LOT more than $8 to fix if you don't have experience.

Yes, it has a Swiss Quartz movement, so a battery is what makes your watch work. Need a new battery? Take it an authorized dealer or other business that has the right tool to open the case. It's not worth ruining an expensive watch just to save a couple of dollars to change the battery.
