The easiest way is go to a jewelry store and have them pop it open for you . They have the batteries too. A sharp knife edge into the edge where the back and case meet will do it. Just don't cut yourself!

Battery for sharp water resist watch, up to 100 ft


Open it up to identify battery type. You will have the advantage that the watch will be open when you replace with new.

How can I remove the back to change battery?


Yep.. unless you have a self winding one. They require a sharp jewelers tool to open.. Sometime you can do it yourself , but you chance ruining the watch with scratches. The jeweler puts the watch in a holder that protects the crown and steady the watch. He then takes a tool and inserts it in the seam of the watch back and pops the back open. After the battery is changed the back is pressed back into place by the devise that can put pressure on the back without risking cracking the crown.. Come on man it's only 8 bucks. Just remember once the back has been opened water proof can not be guaranteed anymore.

Changing the battery in a mickey mouse pocket watch


The first answer is a canned answer. Seen it before. Examine the edge of the pocket watch. Start at the stem and look for a slight gap where the back cover meets the case. It is usually at the stem side or hinge side. Once located take a strong sharp knife and carefully pry up the back cover. It should remove fairly easily. I have about 12 pocket watches and they all work the same way. Once open there may be a small screw or two holding the battery in place. You will need a precision screw driver set or a small screw driver for glasses.

Time to replace the battery, but cannot manage to remove the back cover. Any special tricks? I'm familiar with using sharp knife blade to do this, but it's not working. Thanks!


You defenately need a watch case opener.

It can be more than difficult to open a watch case with a sharp knive/screwdriver without destroying it.

A case opener can be the only solution.

Otherwise you'll have to bring your watch to a professional to get the battery replaced.

How to do I replace the battery?


i don't have one of these watches, but i took a look at a picture of the back. at the back, there's a slightly raised lip. this is the back cover. get something sharp like a knife, and just slip it under that lip and pry it open. that should give u access to replace the battery.

I have a fossil watch model fs4255 leather strap dress amber dial and I want to open back to remove old battery and replace with a new. i have a watch repair tool kit and replace all my own watch batteries...


mcdevito75 here, Even with the proper tools we still have to improvise at times, Instead of useing your case opener from your tool kit, use a steak knife or similar with a sharp edge inside that groove you"ve described, the cover will pry off.

Im tryin to open my watch case or back to put a battery in it will not open and there isnt a little divit on the backing to put a pry tool , and it wont spin{thought it might screw on}


Some times you need a sharp knife edge to slip between the back and case to seperate them. You have to keep a lot of pressure on blade as you insert it and twist it. hope this helps..

Just bought a new diesel dz 7069 watch and theres no battery, but i cant figure out how to open it to put a battery in. Any suggestions?


Generally Diesel uses a pop off back. The pop off back will be smooth and have no indication of how to come off.

To remove a pop off back use a watch knife and press it straight into the separation between the case and back. Start at the upper right corner. Do not use a sharp knife or widdle back and forth as this may damage the surface where the seal is or make burrs. Once you have driven the knife straight in you can move around the back repeating this until the back is completely off.

Canot get the back off my Indiglo watch to change the battery


There is different proccedure for different watch to take out the back. Following are some of the proccedure to open the backcover of the watches:-
1. Some plastic watch have four screw in the back, you just have to unscrew the screws and take out the back.

2. Some of the watch have press back technology, which enables the watch to be water resistant and thus, the backcover of these watches are pressed very tight. You just need a back opener, and at the back if this back opener has to placed between the case and backcover and has to be tilted and backcover can be opened.
(Backopener is a tool which is like thick & hard blade with sharp edges like knife but not very sharp; these edges can get easily between the gap of backcover and case. - this tool can be obtained from any watch tools store easily)
