Watch battery replacement

Can't remove backing of my model 0853 Invicta watch even with 3 prong watch wrench. Seems too tight and wrench slips off with to much torque.

I believe that model's back screws in. You can get a rubber jar opener if you are having trouble gripping it. In general, the key is unscrewing it.

SOURCE: Invicta 2875 wrist watch band too large

You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet.Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.

SOURCE: replace the back of a dkny watch after replacing the battery,

For closing your caseback you need the man with very strong hands first, but it might not work as some casebacks can be closed using special tools only.
Before you visit the watchmaker, try this: first of all open your bracelet by taking out spring lug. This will make more space at the back. Then take watch caseback and check for groove in it. Align that groove with stem (pin going into watch movement) and deepen grooved caseback side as it should be. Then without turning caseback apply great pressure with both hands to the watch(from caseback and dial sides). If hands are strong enough, caseback should snap on into place.
In case if it doesn't work, find a piece of thick leather (wide mens belt will do) and place it on completely flat surface (table top). Place the watch face down on that leather, adjust caseback groove with stem again and try to press caseback down with both hands, only this time using your weight.
If all mentioned above doesn't work- you have to go to see watchmaker.

Good luck.

How can i take the back off the invicta sea spider model no. 5915 so i can change the battery?


Hi I love my Invicta watches also. My wife is telling me that collection is close to how many shoes she has LOL. You will need a special tool the tool has two adjustable prongs so it will fit a Rolex and any other screw on type watch. Normally they come in a set of watch tools. I would suggest eBay, you can get a kit that not only will open any back on any watch but you will get tools for removing the pins in the band. There is also a unique tool to help you put the spring pin in that holds the band to the watch. One word of caution when searching on eBay look to see where the seller is. If it is China I would find one here in the States. I hope this will help you
Have a great day.

How do you get battery out of watch? Do I have to take out all screws and remove top piece?


The back of the watch has six rectangular notches around the edge. Using a jeweler's case wrench and 4-pin vise to hold the watch align the three teeth of the watch to three of the notches on the back and turn counter-clockwise. Considering that the tools alone are going to cost you a minimum of $30 - $40, and then you'll have to purchase a battery for $5 - $7, I'm going to recommend that you have the battery professionally replaced for $10 - $15 at your local jeweler. Keep in mind, I'm also considering the fact that you suggested dismantling the watch in order to change the battery. This is obviously an indication that you have no experience in the most basic servicing of a timepiece and to ensure that your timepiece isn't damaged, you really should leave this to a professional.

Remove back fro wrist watch to change battery


Generally Seiko uses a pop off back and a screw off back. The pop off back will be smooth and have no indication of how to come off. The screw off back will have several rectangular notches around the back where the prongs of a watch wrench fit.
Before you begin you should know that this watch is water resistant and sealed to 100m. This means you do not have the equipment to reseal the watch and you void Seikos warranty. Also, the titanium models are more difficult to seal the back because of the hardness of the steal and the powder coating. They generally require that you replace the rear seal to make the watch water resistant again.
To remove a pop off back use a watch knife and press it straight into the separation between the case and back. Do not use a sharp knife or widdle back and forth as this may damage the surface where the seal is or make burrs. Once you have driven the knife straight in you can move around the back repeating this until the back is completely off.
To remove the screw off back place the watch wrench in the grooves at 10, 2, and 6 o clock. Make sure the prongs are pointed inward toward the wrench the same direction to avoid slipping and damaging the watch. Turn counter clockwise until the back is off.
When taking the back off in either case you must be careful not to slip and scratch the coils or vital parts of the watch. These damage by touch and this will cause the watch to not work. Also, most chronographs require the watch be AC'd. The instructions for this are usually on the back lid of the watch or in the owners manual. If you make a mistake ACing the watch you can short it out or break the circuit board.
Because of the complexity of this seemingly simple task i recommend going to a watch maker/ technician to avoid complications that could end up costing you much more in the long run.

How do you take the back of the watch off


First let me say that I do not recommend learning battery placement in a watch on this particular brand. A mis-step here could cost you hundreds of dollars on this high grade movement. Also, if the watch is water resistant, you most likely do not have the seals or pressure testing equipment to reseal the watch.
That said, if you want to proceed-
There are several different styles of back. Without knowing the model I am going to give you some general instructions.
For a pop off back you would use what we call a watch knife. This would allow you to ease up the back by gently wedging the knife straight into the separation between the back and the case. The area to begin inserting the knife is generally the upper right corner or the area marked by a slight raise (tab) in the back. Be sure to go straight in as widdling will cause damage to the case and back and possibly the seal. Only go in far enough to raise the lid and slowly work your way all the way around the lid. Be sure no to let the knife slip inside the watch case as this may cause damage to the coil or other vital parts of the watch movement.
For a back with screws use the correct size micro screw driver and remove the screws. Be careful not to strip the screws.
For a back that screws off you will need a watch wrench. Place the three prongs of the watch wrench into the slots along the back of the watch. Make sure that the prongs all face inward the same direction on the wrench so you do not slip and damage the back.

As I stated in the beginning. I recommend taking this time piece to a qualified watch maker/technician (not a jeweler) for service.
