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: Relic Wet watch

Like many other watches, the Relic Wet's battery can't be changed by the owner. It requires a Jeweler's wrench. Said wrench has prongs that fit into the 6 indentations on the back of the watch. The wrench is than used to unscrew the back plate, exposing the battery. Any reputable jewelry store will have one.

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.

Where to find batteries for relic watches?


Relic watches use common internal movements and common batteries. They can be found at most drugstores, radioshack and jewelry stores. The trick is getting the back off without damage. Best bet, jewelry store.

I'm from India and I have an Relic (Bought from US) the same model but in silver color. Its been almost two years and it is stopped. Whether battery needs to be changed or anyother problem? If I want to...


Most probably its battery problem. You can go to any reputed (Titan, Timex) watch showroom and get its battery replaced. They will change the battery immediately.

Don't get the battery replaced from the small watch repair shops. They don't have original batteries, so your battery will not last long.

Hope it helps. Don't forget to rate me. Thanks for using FixYa.
