SOURCE: watch battery replacement

I have a Timex Expedition Indigo with a metal case. Not sure of the exact model number but on the back there an M6 below Expedition. Anyway, I had the same problem of snapping the back back on. I found a "battery" website that had some suggestions that should be typical of any snap back case watch. http://www.online-batteries.co.uk/whichbattery.shtml specifically they said that when you try to press the back on it must be flat (not one edge down as I had been trying) Put the watch face down on a non scratch surface and press with both thumbs evenly. If that doesn't work a press will be needed. If you have a vice a couple of blocks of wood to distribute the load on the front and back may work, otherwise take it to a jeweler with the proper equipment. The thumb routine didn't work for me. I have a vice but figured many wouldn't so I tried something else first. I put the watch face down on a piece of wood. I found a small 2" long scrap of wood (3/4" x 1.5" approx) that spanned the back. I centered the back (aligned properly) placed the block of wood squarely and centered across the back and tapped the end of the block with a hammer. First try didn't work, second one did. I used a rubber mallet as the hammer but a regular hammer or other heavy object would work. The trick, I think, is to get everything lined up and square so the blow is centered and even. Also, I'd suggest cleaning the back and the groove in the case and be sure the rubber gasket is properly positioned. This will give you the best chance of retaining the waterproofing. And remember to check that the watch is running before you do this. Some need to be reset (usually with a very small screwdriver or pin) after replacing the battery. There should be a small hole with some printing next to it. You may need a magnifying glass to see/read it. Good Luck, Richard

SOURCE: Replaced battery, now no beep.

I have a Timex Digital Heart Rate Monitor 585 (product code T5C351F5)m, which has the same Short AC Pad and battery +ve message. There is an arrowhead pointing to the pad. It's a raised metal platform - a bit different to some of the Ironman's mentioned above. Here is a pic...6e1fe0e.jpg

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.

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.

Dropped watch on floor and doesn,t work.


Simmon, Try to take the back off watch, and remove and reinstall battery. The watch battery some times looses contact when dropped or hit sharply. I have had to do this on different watches that have been dropped.

I am a Jeweler and in Nov. I changed a Movado battery whick I have done for 13 years with out a problem. The customer claims that the stem doesn't work. I had set the time and it was hard to turn. Now...


mcdevito75 here, You don"t really have to be an authorized Movado dealer or repair center to service Movado watches, specially if Movado doesn"t have a warrantee on that particular watch. Also you say the stem was hard to turn, sounds like this particular Movado watch mechanism was starting to fail. The long and short is, you replaced the battery, set the watch and all was well when the customer recieved the watch back also, a Quartz mechanism could give out at anytime, just as a light bulb can. Have the customer come back with the watch if possible, place a drop of oil on the stem, try a replacement battery. Always ley your customers know what you find, and get a history of the watch from the customer before work, Age of watch, how it"s worn and stored etc. this way your covering yourself for any watch liability. You can offer this customer the mentioned re- service or a refund just to keep the customer happy.

My Swatch Irony watch has recently been running slow. I thought it might be a low battery, but after a replacement, it still loses time (a few minutes each day). Any ideas?


Thank you for contacting Fixya,<br /> I would have the battery checked again. Sometimes batteries in stores can be past the extended life of battery. Otherwise could be a number of issues. Has it been around water? Dropped? Could need cleaning. In cases of most watches, like Swatch, the cost to have repaired may exceed the watch. <br /> You can contact Swatch at:<br /> <a href="http://www.swatch.com/zz_en/shop.html">http://www.swatch.com/zz_en/shop.html</a>

I dropped my tag heuer and now it is not working.


You question is not complete but presumably your watch ios no longer working (hence question?).

Dropping the watch may have dislodged the battery (or worse-something mechanical). The only safe way to find out is to have it inspected by a watch repairer.

Watch Stopped Working


The battery is empty, replace it yourself or take it to a local watch repairer / dealer, he or she will probably charge you around 5 $ for the new battery and replacing it.

I have a Timex Indiglo watch that I had replaced the battery. I used the correct battery CR2016 and the watch doesn't work. I have replaced batteries in watches many times and always have had the watch...


This watch will have what is called and "AC" or All clear to reset it. There should be a white sticker with very small print on the back lid that will walk you through doing this procedure. It typically involves pressing down a tiny lever onto a small metal pad that will reset the watch.

Have timex watch had battery replaced and watch quit working, she had to use clamp device to instal battery


If you had the battery replaced, I'm guessing that the watch wasn't working when you brought it in for a new battery. It may not have needed a new battery. You might need a new watch. I've never heard of anyone needing a clamp for a Timex digital watch. In my experience, they use phillips screws to hold the back to the case. I have a case press for snap-on backs, but that's still unusual for a Timex unless it has a BIG case. I think your watch was shot before you replaced the battery.
