Your watch probably needs a reset after the battery change.
Take the back off the watch. Examine the movement carefully - you should find a small electrical contact point marked 'AC' (which could be quite small). To perform a reset you will need to temporarily connect 'AC' to the '+' terminal of the battery (basically, the upper side of the battery). If you have some fine point tweezers they are ideal, but a bent paper clip (not a plastic coated one) will do.
Be very careful not the make metal contact with any other part of the movement!
Place one end of the paper clip on the 'AC' contact and, for 3 seconds, place the other end on the battery '+'. As watches sometimes need to be reset twice, there's no harm in repeating the operation while you have the back off the watch.
Once successfully reset, you should have no problem with setup and the watch should behave normally.
Hope this helps.
mcdevito75 here, You can try online at Continental watch.com However the numbers on the movement itself count the most, numbers on the watch face and back cover help. HINT!! -- If your Continental Watch has thick hands It"s most likely before 1965, if your watch has thin hands it"s most likely after 1965. Best bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area, they can guide you too a shop that will know if they don"t. Also, you can check with any Antique shops in your area too.
You will have some trouble downloading a book. There are so many models that are similar but different. Simply contact Casio directly, - they have dealers & offices literally all over the world- They will have the book you need for less than $5.00.
There is a serial number on the back of the watch, but the one they will need is inside a box on the back of the watch. Good luck.
