Question about Tissot T-Touch T33759851

1 Answer

I also cannot get the watch back cover to go back on.

I have replaced the battery and that part of it is fine. I have smeared a light film of oil onto the seal which is around the back, but it still refuses to click into place. Is there some secret trick to putting a watch back cover on??

    After a search of the internet, i found that it requires the use of a special clamp to close it. I took it to the same jewellers i bought the watch battery from and they happily pressed the back cover, back on in a jiffy. Hope this helps other people too.

  • J_T_W Jun 22, 2009

    Thanks for posting a solution. I did try similar to what you described altho only using my hands on the cover. I do have reasonable strength, but was unable to complete the task. As i commented above, i eventually used a jewellers clamping tool which did the job. I guess the even distributed radial pressure was key. Thanks again for potential solution, i will try it next time (another six years time probably)

Place the watch face down on a cloth, on a firm surface such as a table. find something the same diameter as the watch back and press firmly. Agentle tap may help

    Place the cover on the back side of the watch used a scotch tape to hold it in place securely.
    Place a piece of cloth one watch to avoid damage to the face.

    Used a copper pipe connector about the diameter of the watch and a height of 10 mm. It would ensure pressure is applied to the sides of the watch and not on to the glass.
    Secure it the copper connector around the edge of the watch face with scotch tape.
    Used a spanner to cover the plate of the watch. Then apply pressure using a vice...slowly.
    Stop turning the vice when its tight and inspect.
    Method used for covers which cannot fit into watch using thumb pressure

Change battery in Elgin watch FQ024-007


The back of this watch doesn't pry off, it screws off.
I used the open tip of a needle-nose pliers to unscrew the back of the watch by inserting the the tips into opposing grooves in the back of the watch and turning it counter-clockwise.

Once the back of the watch is off, there are a few slotted screws that appear to hold a metal cover over the back of the watch 'guts', you'll need a jeweler's screwdriver to remove these screws (I counted 3 of them).

The battery is right under this cover.

When re-assembling the watch, I would apply a thin coat of sewing machine oil, or some other non-reactive lubricant, to the black gasket seal which should be on the back cover of the watch.

Installed battery in lorus musical watch and nothing.


mcdevito75 here, A quartz mechanism can go bad just like a light bulb, depending on the watches age, wear etc. If your watch was stored for a period of time with a dead battery in it, that dead battery could hve leaked, ruining the mechanism. If your watch worked fine and the battery just went dead, make sure the battery contacts inside the watch are clean, use a Q-tip dipped in Alcohol and gently clean the battery contacts, press the button for the music part of your Lorus and make sure those contacts are clean and are meeting once the button is pressed, this you can see with the back cover off the watch. Makes sure the battery is installed correctly, and that the new battery number is the same as the old battery number. 364 and 371 are popular batteries for Lorus musical watches, even though your new battery is new, it can still be dead, who knows how long it was on the store shelf?? also, double check as some Lorus Musical watches have 2 batteries, 1 battery would be rather large ans sitting just under it"s hold down bracket see, as soon as you remove the back cover, if so, that battery must also be replaced. I have an old Mickey Lorus musical useing a 397 battery just 1 but my Lorus is burnt out. If all this fails, I would look for a small watch repair shop in your area and have them look at the watch for you.

Have fitted a new battery but no joy, any tips I can try?


mcdevito75 here, Some quartz watches and I believe Citizen is on of which need the exact factory number battery installed / replaced. if you did use the exact battery number and the new battery is not working, remove the battery and carefully clean the battery contacts with a Q-tip and rubbibg alchohol do not soak the battery contacts just clean them. Also your new battery could be dead, who knows how long it was on the store shelf. Alaso wipe off any oil from your fingers on the new battery before you install it in the watch, make sure the battery is seated correctly in the watch, the back cover may also have to be installed back onto the watch to complete the battery circut for the watch to work. If all this fails you can try to contact Citizen online, Contact CitizenWatch.com and get their recommended battery size for your watch, OR, look for a small watch repair shop in your area. One Last thing, Your Citizen watches Quartz mechanism could also have gone bad, in this case you"ll need a new watch.

Battery replacement


Hi.

Battery replacement is done removing the back plate. The back plate is uncrewed clasping it with a special tools and rotating anti-clockwise. In absence of the special tool a common pair of tweezers will do the job.

Once the back plate is off, extreme care must be taken with the rubber seal, running around the edge of the case opening. This is very delicate, and damaging or kinking the seal may result in the watch loosing its water proof capacity. For this reason battery replacement is better done at the shop.

Fossil Explorer watch BQ9381. It has 3 batteries. 2 are held with small screws and can easily be replaced. But the other one, how do you remove it?


This watch is relatively simple to work on, though you have a total of nine (9) screws, three (3) batteries of two different types, a spring-pin in the wristband, and an o-ring seal to contend with. Nonetheless, you should be able to do this in half an hour with the following tools: Fine tweezers, preferably curved tip; these tweezers should be able to draw blood if you poke yourself lightly with them. Miniature (jewlery) screwdriver set, with tips no wider than the thickness of a dime. Clean toothbrush. Mouse pad for a work surface (optional but highly recommended). READ ALL OF THESE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE DOING ANYTHING. If you feel you are not up to the task, take it to a jeweler or reputable watch retailer (NOT WALMART!!!)1. Disconnect the 12 o'clock half of the wristband from the clasp. Remove the pin, and re-install it into the clasp so you don't lose it, or simply set it aside if you're afraid of it launching.2. Remove the four Philips-head screws from the caseback. Lift off the caseback and check the o-ring seal. If it starts to come off, remove it and set it aside.
3. There are three batteries in this watch: two (2) 392 silver oxides (they may also say 41, 192, or 384) run the analog movement and are held in place by two (2) Philips-head screws each, and one (1) 364 (it probably says 621) silver oxide running the digital circuit. It is best to replace all three at once to get the maximum life out of each battery per change to minimize damage to the seal by unnecessarily opening the watch several times.
4. Using a pair of tweezers, carefully remove the self-adhesive insulators that cover the two larger 392 batteries; set them aside adhesive side up where they won't get in the way. Then remove the two Philips-head screws from each battery clip. After removing the first one, the second will likely get "stuck" in the clip as the contact pushes it upward at an angle, engaging it with the threads. Don't worry about that, but do be careful not to lose either the screw or the clip. Repeat for the second 392 battery.
5. Remove the one slotted-head screw from the 364 battery clip. You may need tweezers to remove the screw, clip, and battery from the battery recess. DO NOT TRY TO DROP OR SHAKE THESE OUT.
6. At this time, you may want to clean the perimeter of the watch opening where the o-ring seal will be replaced. Use a toothbrush and try to scrub away any dirt. Don't brush across the open PCB of the watch as you will get dirt inside it that way. Gently work your way around the outside.
7. Installation is reverse of removal. Remember, there is ONE of the smaller 364 batteries down in the recess, and there are TWO of the larger batteries on top.
8. When you have ensured that all five battery screws have been properly replaced, and the self adhesive plastic insulators have been positioned properly and are sticking to the clips on the 392 batteries clips, hold the o-ring seal between your fingers only tight enough that you can pull it through your fingertips with little effort. Wipe the entire o-ring seal in this manner for several rotations.
9. Gently stretch the o-ring around the perimeter of the opening. Use tweezers to position it, then hold it down on one edge and work the tweezers between the inside of the o-ring seal and the outside perimeter of the opening so that it guides it into place. It may try to "roll" out of position; keep running the tweezers around the perimeter until the "roll" works itself out and the o-ring seal stays seated nicely in position on its own.
10. Replace the caseback, ensuring that the orientation is correct: the top of the text will be in the 12 o'clock position, which is where the band that was disconnected from the clasp is. The crown knob will be facing left with the watch face-down while the text is legible.
11. Re-connect the band to the clasp. Insert the pin into the end of the band, then insert one end of the pin into the clasp. Angle the other end in and if your band hasn't twisted around too much, you may need to use your tweezers to compress the pin into place. Rotate the pin and band until both ends find their hole.
12. I did mine in about 15 minutes, and no additional work was needed to "restart" the watch although the time needed to be set, obviously. Your results may vary. The digital portion was not dead when I replaced its battery. I am not responsible for lost or damaged watch components. I'm just a guy on the internet.

Trouble replacing rear analog watch cover


mcdevito75 here, Replaceing that back cover can be a real pain. I think I have a tip for you. Place the cover only in the Frig. for about 15--30 minutes, the cold should shrink the cover just a bit so it may be easier to snap back onto the back of your watch.---------- OR, Make sure any cutout on the back of the watch is lined up with the stem, make sure any lip used to pry the back cover off the watch is also lined up with the case of the watch if need be. Place the back cover on the watch back, place the watch on a sturdy table, counter top etc. Crystal up, now with even,even pressure useing your palm, press down on the crystal, this should get the back cover to snap back on. Remeber even, even down ward pressure useing the flat palm of your hand on the crystal, press down slowly and the back cover should snap on. If not, visit a small watch repair shop in your area as they have a special pliers just for this job.

Battery replacement procedure for Casio 901 DW-5600?


hi, if the back plate on the watch the part that is against your wrist has four screws holding the silver back plate onto the actual watch then you need to undo these four screw, once undone you lift the back plate off and then this gives you access to the battery, the screws are small philips (cross head screw) so you will need a small screw driver, their is also a little bracket that holds the battery in place you can either push this over to allow the battery out or undo the small screw that holds this bracket in place this will then allow the battery to fall out,

If their are no screws in the back plate then all you need to do is get a very fine flat head screwdriver and look around the edge of the back plate and you should see a little bit on one of the edges that allows you to put a screwdriver into to allow you to lever the back plate off if it has no screws then its just a push fit so just pry the back off and this will give you access to the battery then like above the battery will be held in place by small bracket undo this then remove the battery.

when fitting the new battery make sure you dont touch the top and bottom of the battery as this will flatten it really quick so just push it in place then refit the bracket then either push the back plate back on or screw it back on depending on the type of back plate once this is done you watch will be working again
