Take it to a watch shop. It can be more difficult than it would appear to change the battery yourself.

SOURCE: Swatch Irony Battery replacement will not work

mcdevito75 here, I am thinking your watch ran fine before the battery change. It sounds like the new battery is not makeing good enough contact, you can try, removeing the battery and cleaning the contacts in the watch carefully with a Q tip, dip the Q tip in anything containing alcohol cologne, rubbing alcohol, perfume wet the Q tip good, then sqeeze most out of the Q tip as not too saturate the battery contacts, also clean the battery itself, the oil on your fingers could give it a poor contact on the watch. The stop watch section doesn"t take as much battery power as the second hand. You may also be able to jump start your watch also, You"ll need a needle and a magnifier glass, With the back off your watch, right in the middle of the movement, just below where the stem (winder) goes, you"ll just see part of a little gear, this is the hour hand gear, see if you can gently move that gear just a fraction, place the needle between the teeth of the gear and try to move it as gentle as possible then se if the gear will move on it"s own., be very carefull with the movement. Swatch watches are collectables. If you don"t feel comfortable doing the above, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for help.

SOURCE: how to change battery on a swatch skin watch

  1. Place the watch in case holder. Place the watch in the case holder, if you have one. If you do not, place it on a soft cloth.
  2. Check for room to work. Check to see if there is room to attach the adjustable case wrench and rotate it 360 degrees. If not remove watch band.
  3. Remove case back. Fit the adjustable case wrench into the slots on the case back. Tighten it down until it is snug. Be careful not to slip with this tool as it can scratch the case back of your watch. Work slowly. When it is unscrewed gently pry up the case back taking great care not to damage the internal gasket. If the gasket gets damaged it will need to be replaced with the battery to retain water resistance.
  4. Remove battery. The battery will be held in place by some type of retention device. It will need to be removed. Some clips will be removed by using tweezers. Some clips may be moved using a screw driver, and some simply bend out of the way slightly. Remember how it was removed as it must be put back in place exactly for the circuit to be completed after battery change. If the clip is removed, place it and any screws in a paper cup to prevent loss. Remember how the battery was seated, plus (positive) side up or down etc. it needs to be replaced correctly to work.
  5. Test battery. Using the battery tester check the battery. If it is dead move to next step, if it is not take the watch to a jewelers for inspection.
  6. Clean and inspect battery box. Inspect the battery box the battery came out of. If there is corrosion take it to jewelers for inspection. If there is light dust it may be cleaned with a clean soft cloth.
  7. Buy battery. Use the numbers on the battery and buy a new one. Occasionally the number will be obsolete and you will be referenced to a replacement battery in the battery charts. This is the time to also replace the gasket if you need to. Check with a watch maker or jeweler, or the watch company to buy a replacement. We cannot stress enough how important this gasket is to a water resistant watch, without its integrity your fine watch may no longer be resistant.
  8. Replace battery. Using the plastic tweezers if you have them, or fingers wearing cotton gloves, replace the battery. Never use bare fingers as finger oils may corrode or short out the new battery. Carefully replace the retention device as it was remove.
  9. Replace case back. Make sure that the gasket is in place, and not pinched or caught in the case back when you set it in place. Screw down the case back using your fingers until it is tight and needs the case wrench. Attach case wrench as before and tighten down the case back.
  10. Reset and clean watch. Using the appropriate method reset the watch. Use the polishing cloth to clean off any dirt and finger prints.
OR...take to your local jeweler/watchmaker who has the appropiate tools and let them do it for you!!!! :)

My Swatch Irony watch has recently been running slow. I thought it might be a low battery, but after a replacement, it still loses time (a few minutes each day). Any ideas?


Thank you for contacting Fixya,<br /> I would have the battery checked again. Sometimes batteries in stores can be past the extended life of battery. Otherwise could be a number of issues. Has it been around water? Dropped? Could need cleaning. In cases of most watches, like Swatch, the cost to have repaired may exceed the watch. <br /> You can contact Swatch at:<br /> <a href="http://www.swatch.com/zz_en/shop.html">http://www.swatch.com/zz_en/shop.html</a>

Put in new battery and it does not run.


It is because some 317 batteries have their negative terminal plate flashed a little bit into the positive side plate and some are a bit thicker thus the negative plate of the skin swatch touches the side of the battery. sometimes battery cove/lid cannot be closet when the battery is a minute thick. renata battery is just right for the skin swatch.
