Many watches use special caseback remover wrenches. You may need to go to a jewelry store that does watch battery changes to get it done.

How can I remove the back to replace the battery?


If there are tiny little screws attaching the back, you need the smallest metric Phillips head screwdriver in the set you purchase at a dollar store. Be sure to save the screws carefully as you will need to reinstall them.

Is a special tool required to reinstall the back after replacing the battery.


mcdevito75 here, Not really, but it depends on the maker of your watch, if the back prys off then it simply snaps back on, if there are screws holding the back on you"ll nedd Jewelers screwdrivers, if there are square holes around the back you"ll need a special tool to unscrew the back. Best Bet, have a small watch repair shop change your battery.

Battery replacement - Freestyle shark watch


I believe a local watch repairer will replace the battery for around 5$ that should include the battery, depends on the person.

Generally the battery is replaced by opening the back cover of the watch, in some cases special tools might be required.

40 year old Seiko has stainless steel back with six square notches along the edge. Is a special tool required to open it to replace the battery?


Here's my suggestion. Take it to the jewelry dept at Walmart. Do you have one where you live.
They'll replace for free - Battery $8
Watch how they do it with their tools and you'll know how to do it yourself in the future.
Good luck

Directions to replace the Blackhawk watch battery.


Exact replacement battery you can find written on the original battery.
Do not mind the manufacturer or the letters, because they can vary. Just make sure you are buying the well known manufacturer battery, e.g. SONY, MAXELL, CEIKO, CITIZEN, RENATA, TOSHIBA, YAMAHA, etc.
The most important thing is to EXACT match of the numbers as they are giving the exact code of the battery.
EXAMPLE: Lets say: your battery have some letters and the number 1616. That means: your battery is 1.6 cm in diameter and 1.6 mm in height (thickness), or: 1.6cmX1.6mm, or simplified 1616.
As I said- do not mind the letters, as different manufcturers are using different letter codes (for quick in-house reference) and these letters have no use for you.
So, if you are ready to follow - open your watch caseback and take the battery out. Write down ALL the letters and numbers of that battery.
If you expierance any difficulties to open the watch - let me know.

Do not forget to rate, please.

Need to replace the watch battery.


All battery driven watches are sensitive, not just the Chase-Durer.
Even the cheap ones, as the movement can be damaged or destroyed by the static electricity (touch of the bare finger).
Extra care is not needed to replace your watch battery, just you have to follow some simple, but very basic rules.
If you are ready to do it yourself- let me know and I'll guide you throgh all the steps (by asking me questions on this site).
Ifyou are not, then I'll let you know the best place to do that at nearest shop possible.
