Taking the battery out

I have a Kenneth Cole watch and I can't seem to get the battery out. I tried prying it with a knife for a while and it won't seem to budge. Can some one help me?

    This one is a tough nut. I managed to open it up but was unable to close it by hand. Ended up buying a case back snap and ruined the crystal. I won't take this one to a professional.

    I have a KC4186 wrist watch, looks just like the KC3289 to me. I found the little groove on the back and tried using a small screw driver, it has moved, ever so slightly and I've done some scratching on the back cover, but that ****** ain't gonna pop off. This has become a challenge now. I change all my watch batteries myself cause it would cost me a fortune to take one in every time a battery died. Please help before this one becomes wall kill.

    Thank you, Jeanne

After a little research I found this cool looking tool....

I can't imagine buying the tool would be cheaper than
paying a watch repair shop to replace the battery or
sending it in to KC directly. However it would be super
cool to be able to change the battery at will. If anyone
can find where to buy this "claw" tool please do reply.

This one is a tough nut. I managed to open it and changed the battery but wasn't able to close it back. Ended up cracking the crystal due to my own fault. I'd take this to a professional if I could do it again.

How to open the back of Kenneth Cole KC3434 watch to change the battery?


BASIC WATCH BATTERY CHANGE
Get a replacement battery for your watch. Some watches have the battery information stamped on the back plate. If yours doesn't, you'll have to wait until you've removed the old battery to see what kind of replacement watch battery you'll need.
Lay your watch face down on a non-scratching, non-skid surface. It may help to clamp the watch to the surface.
Remove the back from the watch. You might be able to pry it off with your fingernail, but you'll probably need a stiff, thin tool like a knife or screwdriver. You can also buy watch repair kits, which have the perfect tools for the job. Check the watch back for a small notch to insert your tool, but not all watches have these.
Remove the battery from the watch once the back is off. You might need to tip the watch over to let the battery fall out.
Insert the new watch battery into the proper space, first double-checking its size against the old battery to make sure it will fit. Press lightly into place.
Replace the back on your watch. Make sure you press firmly to get the back seated snugly.

If this doesnt work, then take to a local jeweler/watchmaker who is equipped with the right tools to assist you.

Best regards.

Kenneth cole reaction KC1408 changing battery problem


You have to take the back off. If it has about 6 slots around the back, then it screws off. If it's flat, then you can pry it open. If you pry it open, it,s very difficult to get it back on all the way. You may have to get some tools, or go to a repair shop.

Trying to replace battery in Kenneth Cole C275-04-KC3522


You need a watchmakers knife or caseback opening tool to open your watch.
1)If your watch has screwdown back, there should be grooves in caseback where you have to put in opener and unscrew that caseback.
2)If your watch has a 'clip-on' caseback, you have to carefuly examine the caseback and find the groove between caseback and watch case (it is called 'the lip'). This is the right point where to insert the blade of wtchmakers knife and open it using pressure and lever action.
3)The safest, but dearest way is to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for battery replacement. You may ask the watchmaker to show you how to do that, so, in future you can do that yourself.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Battery replacement


For that you need tool called watch caseback opener. It looks like knife, only the blade is very short, curved and hardened Plenty on ebay for around 5 GBP.
Ordinary knifes wont work as they aren't hard enough and you can damage the watch and injure yourself.
If you gonna try to use chisel and hammer action, then you will damage your watch definetely.
Why don't use watchmaker services? Battery replacements are not very costly.
