Question about Watches
How to change the battery on a LeClip watch, purchased from Selfridges, London on 11.07.1987.
I've seen some photos in a BB that I belong to and if yours is like the one shown, then it appears that the movement is inside the round portion opposite the clip side. There appears to be a separation between the round bezel and the clip and that is where I would try and pry it apart. Here's some info I found on LeClip...
The brand of these watches is "Le Clip" and they are not Swatch nor are they by the Swatch Group. They should not be mistaken for the Swatch Clip watches or the Clip prototype. The watches made by Le Clip were also from the eighties and that shows. They were very trendy in those days and a worldwide success. There were a big range of different ones and there even exist Maxi's, just like Swatch! Today they are very hard to find. The biggest problem wit Le Clip watches is that they were not designed to get a new battery! I do not know how to open it, I have one here but I do not see how to do it.
Biederman & Company has become the United States ad agency for Le Clip, a Swiss-made watch that may be clipped to a place of your choice. According to Barry Biederman, the watch has already caught on in Switzerland, Britain, France and Spain, where 500,000 of them are expected to be sold this year.
With the United States added, the sales goal for 1987 is two million.
The watch is being made by Le Clip S. A. of Geneva, and it has set up an American marketing arm called Le Clip U. S. with Steve Bochner, formerly a regional sales manager of Swatch Watch U.S.A., as managing director. Le Clip will have a suggested sales price of $35.
The budget for the October-through-December introduction in New York will be about $500,000, and national spending next year should be $2 million to $3 million. All in good time.

Unless the watch back has notches on it, you want to look around the edge of the watch and find a little lip. When you find the lipp, use one of the knives and pry open the back. Take one of the tweezers and pull out the battery, you could also use one of those handy-dandy screwdrivers to pry out the battery. Put the new battery in laying exactly like the old one , then proceed to close the back, making sure that the little notch (on the INSIDE lip of the back case) lines up with the stem and crown (the part used for setting the watch) so not to break it. The back openers and the knives are just differant ways to opn the back of the watch. Sometimes watches have screws on the back that need to be taken off in order to open the back case. The case vise is to minumize the wear and tear on your hands. The tweezers are for taking out the battery. If you have anymore questions PLEASE feel free to contact me I will be glad to assist you further! Good Luck!!!

use a pocket knife and put the blade in the grove in between the strap and the steel of the case and pull towards the leather of the strap the pins are sping loaded and work simular to a miniature shower rods very simple so dont get nerves bout it if all else fails you can even just destroy them geting them out and get new pins and straps at wallmart for like 5 bucks

Hi Susan, most Watches will require a tool to remove the back, some use a knife like tool, and some use an adjustable key type tool to fit the slots of the watch cover, so that you can unscrew the back off. Sometimes you can use a thin knife too, be very careful not to cut yourself, and also not to damage the rubber gasket. The gasket sometimes will need replacement on some watches if they are waterproof. I recommend having a watch expert look at it if you feel you can't do this yourself.
Also the tools are available on eBay. I hope this helps you. Joe

Unless the new battery is dead that would explain it, but assuming the battery is good it indicates a failure in the electronic module and should be considered done.
