If its that old, it may not use a battery. Older watches usually use a wind up knob. Yours is on top, try winding it clockwise. You should hear some clicks if its working. good luck!

I have a pocket watch i bought in paris but the battery ranout and i cant get the back off to get the battery out. what should i do?


Hi Josh, I do apologize for the inconvenience.Please try the below steps which should be helpful for you to remove the back of the watch and also replace the battery.
  1. Flip over your pocket watch. Remove the back of your watch. The back of watches are either screwed on by four small Phillips head screws (unscrew them) or the watch has a press inserted back (slide a thin knife blade under the edge of the back of the watch and pry it off).
    (OR)
    Find the small groove on the back of the watch right above the hinge,place the tip of the screwdriver (the small kind used for the screws in glasses) into the groove and gently pry off the back of the watch.
  2. Remove the circular watch battery out of the back of the watch.
  3. Take the battery to any department store or watch store and purchase a new replacement battery.
  4. Insert the new battery into the back of the watch.
  5. Screw on or push on the back of the watch. Set the watch to the correct time.
The above should be of help for you to have the battery on the pocket watch replaced and have the watch working once again.Best wishes for your effort and thank you for your time and patience.

Sweep second hand sticking on colibri pocket watch. How can I correct. I just had battery replaced.


mcdevito75 here, This is a very common problem easily fixed, when the battery was change the repair prerson could have interfered with the seconds hand bending it ever so slightly so it hits the other hands or it became loose, return to the person who changed the battery, they"ll take the back off and fix that seconds hand. Remember this may be no ones fault so I don"t know about any extra charges for service on your watch. This is just my info to you.

How do I open a medana pocket watch?


First -let's check out what type of watch you have. If you push the crown in and it turns freely back and forth with no resistance at all - this is battery driven watch.
If you do the same and feel and hear some clicking and resistance- this is mechanical (spring driven) watch.
Next - the case: Usually all pocket watches have snap-on casebacks. Take an eyeglass and examine the case. Even if you think there is no any grooves or gaps- try to pry it using watchmakers caseback opener (about $5 on ebay).
In case if there are no chance to open caseback - that means you have one of the cases assemblad watch glass fitted last and that means you have to take glass out first and then only to get to the movement.
As you will not be able to get the glass out without braking it, the only solution will be to visit your nearest watchmakers shop and ask for help.

Rate, please.

My colibri pocket watch that I received as a gift is dead. It does not appear to be a wind-up. so I am guessing that it has a battery, that is dead. I am looking for how and where I would get it serviced...


If you want to do this yourself, on the back of the pocket watch if you look at the seam going around the back, you will see a little notch. With a solid knife ( a pocket knife will suffice) take the edge of the knife and put it in that slot and pry up. The back should come right off. The battery probibly will be a 371 which will be covered a little with a piece of metal with a liitle hole in it. Take a tweezer ad GENTLY pull the metal piece away from the battery, and the battery shoul pop out a little. After you do that take the new battery and go backwards from how I told you to take it out. When putting the back back on just press with your hands and it should just snap back on. If you still have problem please let me know and I will be glad to assts you futher.Good luck!
