If it's a quartz (battery powered) watch test the voltage of the battery. If below 1.5v then replace with new. Ensure battery contacts make good contact with the battery and are free of corrosion/rust/contamination of any sort. Check operating manual for any specifics regarding battery replacement proceedure.

Does the back cover snap-on/off or screw on/off? I don't see tabs for popping off.?


Although the cover is flatly closed and there's no tab/recessed area on the cover, you can still use a watchmaker's knife (looks like a Swiss Army knife but with case opener blade) or even use a Swiss Army knife to open it (pry off, particularly common in less expensive watch).
Be careful, don't try to use the point of the knife, use the blade instead.
Get under the rim and gently but firmly turn the blade upward, popping the cover off.

If the cover is flat, no notches on it, that is a screw-back case. You need a case wrench (screw-back watch case opener) to open (unscrew) the cover. If you try to use a very small flat screw drive and tab (turn) the cover in counter-clockwise direction, be careful because it can cut your fingers.

Hope it helps.

the Swiss Army watches I have dealt with have all required a Rolex back wrench, it costs in excess of $100.00, they most charge $7.50 to replace the battery and that includes the battery.

Does the Swiss Army Wenger Alpine 72558 Wrist Watch take a battery?


Yes, it has a Swiss Quartz movement, so a battery is what makes your watch work. Need a new battery? Take it an authorized dealer or other business that has the right tool to open the case. It's not worth ruining an expensive watch just to save a couple of dollars to change the battery.

How do you open back to change battery?


Swiss Army watches require a special tool. You will need to call your local jewelers and ask if they do Swiss Army watches as not every jeweler has the tool to do it.
Good luck

Hi, I recently purchased a Wenger Commando Chronograph Special, and on several occasions now, the battery seems to have stopped. Is this due to it being brand new or should I send it back? Many thanks


If it is still within the warranty period, it sounds faulty and should be returned to the supplier.

It might be helpful if you spoke to your nearest dealer first to make sure that it is a fault.

Hi,

It sounds like the watch movement needs to be serviced. A qualified watchmaker can do this for you.

Hope this helps,

Swiss army stopped


If qz. see previous answer. If it's mechanical and absolutely all the moisture is not eradicated then rust may begin to form and will over time cause damage. So if it's mechanical take it to a watchmaker for servicing asap.
Please rate my solutions.

The second hand stops on the minute hand


If the hands are binding the movement needs to be removed from the case and the hands set right. i.e. parrallel and not binding.
