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.

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.

SOURCE: How do I open my gucci watch to change batteries?

Get a #0 1.6mm precision Phillps screwdriver (these are brittle) or similarly strong, thin piece of steel.

Hold the watch upside-down across your index finger while gripping the straps tightly between your index finger and thumb on one side, and index finger and middle finger on the other (ie. squeeze the strap around your index finger).

On the underside of the watch, stick the tip of the screwdriver under a square slot where the watchband is connected at an angle perpendicular to the strap. Firmly pry upwards on the cover on one side, then the other, until the cover pops off.

The battery is a Renata 379.

To put the cover back on, align the square slots precisely with the ends of the straps (keep these out straight), then firmly push the cover straight down until it "snaps" shut.

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.

I wanted to replace battery in my wife's Relic watch and a little metal part dropped on the table. I don't know where should it be put back. Do you have a manual for watch ZR33471. I would like to fix...


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
First of all, the manual would not help you with the battery. They usually dont have this info in manual. Your best bet is to take your watch to a local jeweler who does watch batteries. I imagine its just the battery strap but they can help you. You may get lucky and they dont charge you if you have the battery.
Best regards. Jewel

How to set the time on relic watches


I had to go to the Sears counter to fix mine. The sales person had to use TWEEZERS to pull the serrated knob up. He had to really work at it. Once it is pulled up you can twist the knob to set the time and then push the knob back down. What a stupid design.
