We changed the battery - now the watch reads "open". We think that something needs to be jumpered but we don't know what. We've tried various combinations and got "Saturday" (but doesn't keep time) ... "12 am" but doesn't keep time ... goes back to "OPEN"
There is a plastic outfit that comes under the cover and it has a small pin that need to press a switch in the watch that indicates the cover is not tight. check all parts been assembled corrctly specially you need to see that small plastic pin going into the right hole.

come on just take it to any store that sells batteries and some time they will open it up and sell you and install a new battery or just ask while out shopping and you see a battery display. I have had a large dept store do it for me and did not by a battery. There is a local small jewelry store that run a $3 coupon that right a $3.00 coup they will open and remove old and install new also if all fail read instuction if you saved them and last some time on the back of thr watch it will have the battery #.
I would think it is the sensor circuit in the watch. When you replaced the battery did you activate the processor all reset for the watch? I do not know on your model where or how this would be activated.
Electronic watches normally have a reset procedure for when the battery is changed. Very important the watch's processor reset is performed after changing the battery. This is not any of the user readings reset. This is a reset for the watch's processor and system. It is sometimes a contact that has to be shorted out with the jeweler's screwdriver, or it is a contact that has to be shunted, or etc., depending on the model. Maybe if you call the support for the watch they will tell you this. Normally they do not like the user opening the watch.
I am assuming you are reading the battery charge correctly. If so you need a new rechargable battery. Special battery so it is a little expensive. Make sure the person knows it is a "rechargable battery" you want. A regular battery will not work properly or recharge.
some watches have a notch that comes out where you can get a knife, or exacto blade underneath to pop it open. if not, there may be multiple intends along the ridge that would require a special tool to twist open. any jewler could change the battery for you. also, batteries plus stores can change the battery out at a reasonable price.
The vast majority of Fossil analog wristwatches take either a #377 or #379 watch battery. The #379, being slightly smaller, is somewhat more commonly found in women's watches than in men's watches, but I have seen both types used in men's and women's watches alike. However, the Fossil CH2473 includes chronograph functions, which means that you can have multiple motors inside the watch running simultaneously. As a result, it's possible that this watch will require a different / bigger bigger. However, if it's not one of these batteries, or even if it takes a 3-volt lithium battery instead of a 1.5 volt watch battery, it will still be something pretty mundane. In general, common batteries like the type I expect you'll find inside your watch are commonly found at many drug stores, jewelry store counters at places like Walmart and Target, and even at some dollar stores. Be aware that cheap dollar store batteries are usually alkaline, not silver oxide, versions of the same size battery. Alkaline batteries may work perfectly well in many watches, but they have a somewhat different energy performance curve over time, and, in general, they won't last quite as long as a comparable silver oxide battery. In addition, for reasons I've never been able to figure out, some of the Fossil watches that I've serviced would not function with an alkaline battery--but would work fine when I put in a silver oxide battery of the same size and voltage. I have not been able to see a pattern to predict when this will and will not occur. Lithium batteries, whether "brand name" or generic, should have the same performance curve. If you do open up your watch to change the battery and don't recognize the battery type/code on your battery, don't give up. Watch batteries have different numbering schemes, depending on the manufacturer. Here's a link to a cross-reference chart that will help you "translate" one code into another. I would suggest starting by looking at the #377 line to see if one of those cross-reference codes matches what you have. However, you may need to look around the chart to get an exact match: http://www.watchbatteries.com/custom.aspx,,id,,75
As a final thought, the backs of some Fossil watches are very snugly fitted to their cases. You can generally get them off without too much of a problem, but there's a good chance you may need a jeweler's press to get them to snap back on properly. I've noticed this most with round watch backs; I generally haven't needed a press to close oblong or tonneau-shaped Fossil watches (or some round watches, too). A jeweler's press spreads the pressure evenly around the edges of the watch back and watch case, preventing damaging pressure on the watch crystal, watch movement, and watch back. Clamping the watch in a regular vise to try to press on the back runs a high risk of damaging your watch, and I do not recommend trying that, no matter how frustrated you get. It's much safer (and cheaper, overall) to tip someone with a vise a couple of dollars to close up your watch for you.
ebel keeps that a secret they have a marking on there batteries mine 690 but there is no such after market replacement with this number. ( ebel wants to be the only game in town/ world ) but if you want to replace it your self, witch will void your warrenty 'says' ebel. take the battery out and take it to a jewelry store, and they can match it up ( $5.00 to $6.00 ) or pay $240.00 to ebel to "service" it. clean / new gaskel / batt witch ebel says is necessary to change batt. every 3 years or so. do not take the watch to the jewelery store only the battery , because know one will open it. they will want to send it out to ebel for service big $ also save old batt, because if you ever have to have the watch fixed put the old batt back in and hopefuly they wont notice. to get the battery out read my instructions i have posted its easy. other posts i have read on replacing batt, they don't know what they are talking about. do NOT remove anything but the bezel only. please Read hope this helps you out.

mcdevito75 here, I would try a new battery even, if you just changed the battery, batteries have a shelf life also, you may have bought an old battery unknown to anyone. Look for a small watch repair shop in your area before you send the watch in, if you don"t do your own watch work.
