SOURCE: my watch needs a new battery.

There is a tool that you need that adjusts to the three holes or openings in the back of your watch and it just screws off. If you don't have access to the tool, simply take two push pins and CAREFULLY insert them into the openings and unscrew the back cover. Remember that it unscrews counter-clockwise.This will give you access to the battery simply take it out and go to the store to buy a replacement repeat the process to install the cover back on.

SOURCE: Kenneth Cole Wrist Watch unable to remove link

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 start to 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,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!

Hope it'll help.

Regards

Arthur

SOURCE: How do I change the battery of a Jules Jurgensen pocket watch.

First you have to get an eyeglass and examine watch caseback. Can you see the joint or is it monoblock? If there is joint, get strong knife and press into it. Some of watch casebacks are very tight, so, apply great pressure but do not let the blade slip or you will damage the movement.
If the case is monoblock, then you have to open it from dial side.
Be very carefull when doing it as any slip of the blade will damage your watch.

Good luck.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: how to open the back of a wrist watch to change

Identify first if it is a "screw on back" or a "pop off" back. Screw on backs have multiple indentions on the caseback where a special tool fits in the grooves to twist it on and off. If it is a screw type back then you will either need to buy a pricey caseback wrench or take it to a jewelry store that changes watch batteries.
A pop off back will have a smooth caseback with no indentions on it.
Most of these are "pop off" backs. to pop the back off get a very sharp blade and apply pressure at about a 30degree angle between the case and the caseback on the underside of your watch. From there you should be able to pry it and it should pop right off. Another way is to put a razorblade between the case and caseback, tap the blade with a small hammer (lightly!) and then pry the back off.

How do I replace the lithium battery in a Casio Privia PX-100?


mcdevito75 here, I've also riuned a number of Casio watches replaceing the battery, extra, extra care is needed, first remove the back cover screws, then you:ll have to remove another cover for the battery, after replaceing the battery the work begins, very carefully reverse the removal procedure, any un do pressure will cause the movement to break and the face of your watch will turn Black. Best with your casio is to let a watch repair shop change the battery, look for a small shop to save some money.

Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

How do you change the battery on an ebel watch


Unscrew or pry off the case back. Remove the metal strap holding the battery in place. Sometimes you have to remove screw in the metal strap. Look on the battery for the type and order by that number. Put back in with fingers or plastic tweezers. Do not use metal tweezers as it will short the battery.

Removing the back to change battery


The plastic wrist band doesn't have to be cut away. You need to dislodge the spring-loaded end of the pin from the hole in the plastic with the blade of a sharp thin knife.

The you proceed to lift one of the 4 snaps to open the cover. The battery is under a white translucent inside cover.

The original battery was Sony SR621SW.

Pay attention to the rubber seal ring when putting the watch back together.
