Re: Eye of Sauron watch eye won't come on

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.

I have a ladies Fossil watch #AM4168. The battery went bad on it and when I changed it out with a brand new battery and the second hand won't move. I took the battery out thinking I was sold a bad battery...

It is a common logic problem. The watch stopped working. You assumed it was the battery; hence your assumption was wrong. Therefore the obvious answer is that the watch broke and that a battery would not help unbreak it.

I have found a fossil watch model BG-2103. I cannot get the back off to change the battery, can you tell me how to get the back off and how much this watch cost.

mcdevito75 here, Look for any Notch in the cover that match a notch in the case, use a knife with a sharp blade and place the knife in the notch and with a slight twisting motion the cover should pop off. Depending on the age of the watch and the functions cost could be anywhere betwwen $25.00----$60.00 Fossil watches are also collectables.

Change battery

Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving in doing it yourself.

Take your watch to a REPUTABLE watch repair NOT a jeweler. There should be no problem in changing the battery on your watch.

Changed the battery in my fossil watch series AM-3692. The watch will not work now. Battery is the same number and manufacturer that was in the watch originally.

You may have thought your battery was bad, when in reality the watch had a problem to began with. You also may have bought a dud battery. Have the battery tested, if good you either have a mechanical problem ( there is something stopping the gears from moving) or you have a electrical problem ( the curcit board or coil is shot). Fossil has a 11 year warranty on most of their watches, and even if you don't have your original reciept, I would get ahold of them and ask what they can do for you. Or you can take it to a watch repairman to repair but it will cost you.

Replace a band on a fossil watch brand 2753 georgia bulldogs

Bands are held to the watch body by springpins. To disengage them, I use a fine blade knife, and pull one end of the pin down by causing the blade to bite into the metal of the pin, between the eye of the band and the watch body. This method will work when dealing with leather straps, perhaps not with a metal band, depending on how much clearance there is between the watch fork and the band's eye.
If there is no clearance, it may be necessary to destroy the springpin to get the band free. Replacement pins can be purchased at a watch repairer.
Replacing batteries: You need the back off. Some screw on, most press in. Press- ins can usually be released with a knife blade, or small leverage device if there is a specific release place on the rear cover. On odd occasions, it becomes necessary to "use a hammer and chisel". Not easy.
Screw- off backs need a tool to engage the slots on the rear. Sometimes can be done with a pair of long- nose pliers.
The backs often have a fine rubber sealing ring, for water resistance.This needs to be put back in place carefully.
The batteries are held in place by various means, spring tension, clamping etc. Sometimes a screw or two must be loosened to free the battery.
Really, it is all a job for the experienced.
I only do work on my own and other family member's watches. I have a range of tools I have made for these. I wouldn't risk doing outsiders' watches. I do bands and batteries, but leave it at that.
