Hi. If you take a tiny screwdriver (one that you might use to screw a screw into an eyeglass and run it gently around the back you will feel an indentation where you can insert the tip and pop open the back. The battery is easy to access but trying to get the back back on is the problem! Good Luck.

SOURCE: I can't seem to remove

If you take a small scredriver (one that is used to repair eyeglasses) and run it gently around the rim of the back, you will feel a slight indentation where you can insert the screwdriver to open up the back. The battery is easily accesible but then it's tough to get the back back on!

This sort of information is only likely to be available from an authorised dealer.

If you go to the Boluva web site, you will be able to use their dealer locator to find the one nearest you.

SOURCE: I NEED TO KNOW YEAR

A Bulova "M5" code would indicate that the watch was made in 1965. Vintage Bulova watches can be dated by this little alphanumeric code:

Lx = 195x Mx = 196x Nx = 197x Px = 198x Tx = 199x

Pre-1950 Bulova watches used a variety of symbols and numbers (e.g., 47 and 48 to designate 1947 and 1948) to show the model year of the watch. A chart of those symbols can be found here: http://www.manleyhorlogerie.com/Watch_History/bulova.htm#Bulova%20Date%20Codes

Changing the battery in a mickey mouse pocket watch


The first answer is a canned answer. Seen it before. Examine the edge of the pocket watch. Start at the stem and look for a slight gap where the back cover meets the case. It is usually at the stem side or hinge side. Once located take a strong sharp knife and carefully pry up the back cover. It should remove fairly easily. I have about 12 pocket watches and they all work the same way. Once open there may be a small screw or two holding the battery in place. You will need a precision screw driver set or a small screw driver for glasses.

I have a vintage Bulova watch that I'm trying to date: No. On face is 23 Number on back of case is 312171 I would appreciate any help.


Bulova began using a series of codes in the late 40's to date watches, look on your case for a letter followed by a number,the letter designates the decade,A=40's,L=50's,M=60's,.N=70's,P=80's,T=90's and the following number designates the year, an example would be,M4 would indicate 1964. Hope this helps,the serial numbers are used for identification purposes only

I have a Majestron quartz pocket watch. How do I replace the battery?


  • Flip over your pocket watch. Remove the back of your watch. The back of watches are either screwed on by four small Phillips head screws (unscrew them) or the watch has a press inserted back (slide a thin knife blade under the edge of the back of the watch and pry it off).
  • Remove the circular watch battery out of the back of the watch.
  • Take the battery to any department store or watch store and purchase a new replacement battery.
  • Insert the new battery into the back of the watch.
  • Screw on or push on the back of the watch. Set the watch to the correct time.

    How do I replace a battery on a kenneth cole watch and square fossil watch


    Open watch case back, then release the metal contact covering the battery. Memorize battery's polarity (+ up and - down), then take the battery out. Memorize the combination of letters and numbers on battery (should be something like: CR 3216 or similar). Make does not matter - Seiko is as good as Maxell, Panasonic2_bing.gif and other reputable makes. Buy new battery with identical combination of letters and numbers and put in your watch. Replace back contact, gasket and case back. Set your watch and enjoy. Rate me, please.

    I have an Illinois pocket watch and I can't figure out how to open it to get the proper info to look it up. Can you help me plz?! Thank you


    The back screws off.
    Turn it Counter clockwise.

    The numbers you need is the actual serial number off of the movement not the case.

    We then can provide you the production information on your particular run of antique pocket watch.

    Hope this tip helps.

    Have a waltham pocket watch in an illinois case enameled dial with a recessed seconds dial at bottom with a numeric 6. seconds on face also. can't find year or pic of this watch


    If you go to the web site "www.antique-pocket-watch.com/waltham-pocket-watch.html", you will find information about Waltham watches and if you read the serial number off the movement (open the back and read it off the back plate), you may be able to find out the year of manufacture.

    How do I open a medana pocket watch?


    First -let's check out what type of watch you have. If you push the crown in and it turns freely back and forth with no resistance at all - this is battery driven watch.
    If you do the same and feel and hear some clicking and resistance- this is mechanical (spring driven) watch.
    Next - the case: Usually all pocket watches have snap-on casebacks. Take an eyeglass and examine the case. Even if you think there is no any grooves or gaps- try to pry it using watchmakers caseback opener (about $5 on ebay).
    In case if there are no chance to open caseback - that means you have one of the cases assemblad watch glass fitted last and that means you have to take glass out first and then only to get to the movement.
    As you will not be able to get the glass out without braking it, the only solution will be to visit your nearest watchmakers shop and ask for help.

    Rate, please.
