If you do not have the proper tools,(proper tools are recommended) and depending on the type of backing, this may help you :

  1. Locate a very small tab (or recessed area) on the edge of the back cover. This is the access point for removal.
  2. Get a kitchen knife with a rigid blade. It doesn't have to be razor sharp, it only needs to be inflexible. You can also use a small fine screwdriver.
  3. Very carefully slide the blade under the tiny metal protrusion on the back cover (or across the length of the recessed area, depending on which type of cover your watch has). Do not attempt to insert the point of the knife. Use the length of the blade.
  4. Get under the tab or recessed area and gently but firmly turn the blade upward, popping the cover off.
  5. Locate your battery(Small round disc type) remove and check the numbers on it. Go to most any local dept. stores (Wal Mart, Target, Radio Shack, etc.) and purchase same.
  6. Install battery with numbers up.
  7. Place cover over watch, and snap back into place.
Hope this helps. If not, please let me know and I will get back to you.

    Just an FYI, most of the department stores that you buy watch batteries from, also install them for you as well.

Need correct replacement battery


the watch movement deters which battery the watch needs it is very important you do not put a battery in that doesn't suit the watch as it can short out the circuit however you can get the correct size in a gold seal quality which should not leak, also the older the watch, the more demanding the watch becomes on the battery as the movement components start to experience wear and tear

I have a Seiko stainless steel ladies watch, 3 years old, only one 'winder' no fancy buttons, analogue style. It has suddenly started beeping every hour - how do I turn it off?


mcdevito75 here, The beeping must be a signal that the battery is weak, have the battery changed. Look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change.

Stainless steel band won't snap into my watch


Stainless steel bracelet ends (so called wings) must be curved flush to the watch case.
Another way is to use curved spring lugs (pins).
