Question about Relic Watches

1 Answer

I have Relic VX3J 3 Eye - stopped working after 2 years.

Is this a battery powered watch? Can't believe Relic doesn't include the info for that, either with the watch or on their website. Thank you!

If turning the adjustment bead does not result in a clicking then it is likely quartz. I am presuming it did not require winding. So if it clicks and comes back to life it is automatic (just wear it to charge it) if not then it is likely quartz. Most automatic watches can also be manually wound to charge. This is better for the movement when it is fully unwound, 10 full turns to be on the cautious side from flat. It is unlikely you can overwind good quality modern watches as they have a clutch to prevent over winding. cheaper watches may or may not have this feature.

SOURCE: Watch Band Adjustment

I just got this watch for a gift and was able to remove links myself after doing some research. It really isn't difficult if you are patient, have a little mechanical experience, and have some very basic "tools" available.

Tools:

  • 1 push pin like you use on bulletin boards with a plastic head
  • 1 small hammer like a tack hammer
  • 1 pair of small pliers. Needle nose pliers would be best but I used diagonal wire cutters (be careful not to cut the link pin)
  • 1 small block of wood

Try to pick a well lit table in a room where you will not be interrupted.

Procedure:
1. Lay the watch and band sideways on the block of wood so that a pin for the link you would like to remove is just hanging over the edge of the block and pointing down. You need the block to brace the band while you hammer lightly on the pin. Someone to hold the watch in that position would be helpful, but it can be done alone. Only try to remove pins that have an arrow on the back of the band pointing at them. It does not matter with this watch band which way you go with the pin.
2. Carefully line up the push pin point with the top of the pin.
3. Slowly, lightly and carefully hammer the plastic side of the push pin so that the pin in the link just emerges from the band on the bottom side enough so that you can grab it with the small pliers.
4. Slowly and carefully pull the pin straight out with the pliers. You can pick up the watch from the block of wood to get a better grip. Be careful not to bend the pin since you will need to replace at least one of the pins you remove.
5. Repeat steps 1 - 4 until the band is the correct length. I needed to take out 3 so I removed 2 from one side and 1 from the other side of the clasp.
6. To fasten the watch back together again, gently insert the pin back in the hole it came from it. You will probably need to use the tack hammer to make the top of the pin flush with the band.

SOURCE: Relic Watch Battery

http://www.apexbattery.com/relic-watch-battery-watch-batteries-relic-watch-batteries.html ... I've had 2 different sources take me to this same battery, although the Relic model I'm using is a ZR11586. "This battery is for ALL Relics," is what they keep saying.

SOURCE: taking back off relic watch

If this is screwback, then there should be grooves for inserting case opener claws. For this yoy need case opener with interchangeable claws. You can buy it on ebay for approx. £7.00.
If the casebask is snap-on, then there shouldn't be any grooves, just small opening (lip) between the caseback and case. This is exact point where the watchmakers knife blade must be inserted and pryed up.
Do not forget to rate, please.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: how to make a relic watch bracelet a little smaller?

No but if this is a mens watch there might be a micro adjustment on the clasp. To adjust press the pin in the clasp and move the pin in or out depending on the position of the pin to make loose or tight.

Battery:
Energizer 373
Movement plate:
There are 3 inscriptions/stamps
1) S (May be a # 5)
2) 1A

I wanted to replace battery in my wife's Relic watch and a little metal part dropped on the table. I don't know where should it be put back. Do you have a manual for watch ZR33471. I would like to fix...


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
First of all, the manual would not help you with the battery. They usually dont have this info in manual. Your best bet is to take your watch to a local jeweler who does watch batteries. I imagine its just the battery strap but they can help you. You may get lucky and they dont charge you if you have the battery.
Best regards. Jewel

I can't find a replacement battery, I have 2 3


Go to "http://relicbrand.com/pdf/Service_Form.pdf" and you will find an order form with prices for repairs and battery replacement.

It may seem expensive for a replacement battery but if you see the number of people who can't get their watches to go after battery replacement, you wouldn't hesitate to send them off.

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.
