SOURCE: Opening back of watch for battery replacement

Turn the watch sideways & look around the edges of the back of the watch. You may have to use a magnifier to do this. Look for an area that has a gap. Put the knife there & pry it open. Hope this helps.

If you plan on doing this yourself, find a nice heavy pair of needle nose pliers and put the ends in the knotches on the casing back. Have them as far apart from each other as you can and turn counter-clockwise. If you still have problems opening, put the watch in a vise with the lugs in the teeth of the vise. DO NOT tighten too hard or you will snap the lugs. It dosn't have to be tight , just enough to hold the watch while you turn the back. If you still have problems please let me know and we will find another way of doing this.Good luck!!

SOURCE: to replace battery of pocket watch

My son has a Timex pocket watch-I just got the back off with a very tiny flat-head screwdriver- the niche or indent you're looking for is almost indiscernible; look very closely, the edge of the back barely deviates from where it meets the edge of the front piece. Looks more like a flaw than an intentional point of entry

How to re-close the back plate on a Dakota time/date warch?


Some of these watches have a notch where the stem goes. If you don't have the back in place it will not snap back into place. Also some are a slight screw back and will snap off, but when putting them back you must kind of screw it back in place. Good luck.

The battery is placed with the total flat side upwards! Hope this helps!

How to change battery watche


Remove the back cover of the watch. You probably do not need a special tool to do this. The battery is likely right on top, held by a metal clip. Note the "polarity" and orientation of the battery, i.e., which end is up (take a picture, if necessary). Carefully remove the battery by gently prying up the clip that holds it in place. The battery type is engraved on it, and you will need to get a replacement of the same type or an exact equivalent. You could purchase one on-line or from Radio Shack.

With the replacement battery in hand, insert it back into its cutout within the watch mechanism, again gently prying up the clip. Make sure it's oriented the same as the original battery. Replace the watch back -- you may need to press down to make it click into place.

My Timex Indeglo watch does not have any means of opening the watch so I can replace the battery. It kept perfect time when it ran, but now it does not run at all. Is it supposed to be a disposable watch...


  • If you don't already know what size battery you need, you can find this information on the back plate of your watch. Once you have your replacement battery, you will need to open the back of the watch to gain access to the battery compartment. Depending on the watch, the back plate will either screw off or be attached by a few small screws. If attached with screws, you will need a set of precision screwdrivers such as a jewelry or eyeglass kit.

    Inside the battery compartment, you will see the battery is held down by a clip. Carefully remove the clip and eject the battery. Insert the new battery and replace the clip. If the battery clamp indicates you should do so, quickly press the reset button twice. Then reattach the back of the watch. If the watch display remains off after replacing the battery, press all buttons at the same time to reset the display.

    I took a clip watch to the Mall today and had the battery replaced at the Dakota Kiosk. It cost $10. They used a tiny knife to pry off the back. I was trying to use a screwdriver and that didn't work.

    You can slide a thin metal strip(like a paper cutter or something) and lift the back cover of the case..Watches do not have clips. It just clicks into place thats all.

    You need to CAREFULLY peel back that sticker and on either side of that metal clip is a way to unclip it. I really would not recommend someone changing any of their batteries unless its a "cheapo" watch! If you touch the wrong area with the tweezers you could end up having to send it in for repair! Best bet here is to take it to a reputable watch repair shop and let them do it!

    hi
    please follow the steps to change the battery
    1. Step 1 Make sure the little arrow on the back is aimed to the right. Then, insert a small flat head screwdriver into the notch on the edge, and lever the back open. Place the back to one side.
    2. Step 2 Unscrew the clip holding the battery (if your model has a clip), and remove the battery.
    3. Step 3 Use plastic tweezers to put in a new battery. Do not directly touch the new battery. Screw the clip (if it has one) back on.
    4. Step 4 Replace the gasket that seals the watch. Then lightly coat the gasket with a silicone-based grease.
    5. Step 5 Align the back with the little arrow aimed to the right again, then carefully press the watch between two pieces of wood that are being held by a small vise, until the back seats itself.
    thank you....
