Question about Watches
Opposite these two screws, the battery retaining clip goes down over a lug on the plastic body of the movement, and to the clockwise side of this protruding clip is a small extra piece of metal. Push a this screw driver or such between the plastic and the clip and it will pop up. Remove the battery and before replacing it, short out with a metal object the centre of the revealed movement with the small sticking up contact which was under the battery. Put the new battery in and set the hands to 12 o'clock - and it won't go until after midnight when it's received a radio signal.
(I don't have the instructions but managed to get the hands to rotate continuously by shorting out two of the three little round brass contact points at the side of the movement.) Good Luck!

I haven't seen this watch but I suspect the thin metal peice is the battery retainer. If so look carefully to see if it clips over the module at provably several points. If so gently prise them up to release the retainer. Wipe off new battery and install the correct way up. Replace retainer ensure it is correctly clipped in at all points. Set about recalibration process. If it doesn't have clips perhaps it has screws. If so remove them etc. Pleae rate this solution.
