Question about Watches
Hi I changed all of the batteries in my collectable lord of the rings Eye of Sauron watch manufactured by fossil but I can't get it to work I know you have to reset it but how do you do this?
Check to be sure the batteries that are specific to the special effects (under gold pressure plate) match the correct polarity. The top one should be "-" down and the lower one should be "+" down, but just check to be sure. You can find the polarity noted to the left of the battery and also very small at the edge of each battery slot - just look for a tiny green painted spot with polarity noted.
To reset the watch, look for the word "RESET" (lower right portion inside case) - notice there are three gold dots centered in green squares. Use either a tweezers or two pins or two small screwdrivers and touch both of the gold round dots simultaneously. That should reset the watch. Check it, if it doesn't work then try it again - two contacts at a time. I think I touched all of them in haste, but I believe it's the two matching gold dots that are the reset. Tweezer separation is almost perfect to rest the watch. That should do the trick. The batteries needed for this watch are SR626SW. Remember to put the black plastic stick on protector over the gold pressure latch that holds the two special effects batteries in place. If it's gone, cut out a piece of electrical tape and cover the gold so it doesn't come in contact with the case back.
I think that's more info than you needed, but good luck and I hope it works for you. I had to take my watch to the jeweler just to get the case closed - it was a tough one.
