Replacing Watch Backs


some watches are water resistant, and in order to achieve resistance, is made very exact.....
you need to use probably hydraulic press in order to close it back again.... once I had same problem and strenght of my fingers was not enough to close it back.... it just wouldn't pop in.... so only one old guy that used to repair clock had that special small hydraulic press to close lid back....

I hope you understand, I didn't use English to communicate for quite a long time.....

Changing the battery in a mickey mouse pocket watch


The first answer is a canned answer. Seen it before. Examine the edge of the pocket watch. Start at the stem and look for a slight gap where the back cover meets the case. It is usually at the stem side or hinge side. Once located take a strong sharp knife and carefully pry up the back cover. It should remove fairly easily. I have about 12 pocket watches and they all work the same way. Once open there may be a small screw or two holding the battery in place. You will need a precision screw driver set or a small screw driver for glasses.

Back has NO screws. How do I easily remove it to replace the two batteries?


Hi, You may know that this watch runs on two batteries, one for digital display and another for analog hands.
If the analog hands stop working all you need to do is to replace the battery and please replace both at the same time since the band and cover take some effort to remove.
You need to take off the both bands first to access the back side than the back cover with a small knife..
Just in case,if you need the user manual here is the link.

I have the Niki Oregon Series watch WA0019-001 and i rplaced the battery myslf because it stopped working. There was difficuly opening the back, and after replacing the battery, the watch will work...


There are sometimes hidden dangers in replacing batteries which is probably why most makers recommend professionals to do the job.

You seem to have had some success but it sounds as if there is an intermittant contact with the battery. If you feel that you can remove the back again, try removing the battery, cleaning it with surgical spirit (to remove any grease that is naturally on fingers) and replace it.

As an engineer, I would expect that a screw on back should go on easily until it reaches the end of travel, when it will tighten. If it is stiff all the way, they you may have crossed the thread and damaged it. Never apply a large force at the start of screing the back on, as the threads are quite fine and may be easily damaged.

If after trying again, you still have the problem, then go to a watch repairer and discuss what you have done and the problem you are having.

Take care.

Good luck.

Battery is gone (I think) and regular watch repair places don't fix it (need a special tool to open it)


does it have a slot on the back ? usually Nike watches are made to easily replace the battery usually with a nickle slot on the back or screws on the corners. The batteries they have are usually common 2806 or similar coin sized batteries. It will say on the back of the battery .

Most jewelry or watch repair shops can easily replace these batteries. if you bought the watch within a year , have receipt and something is broken. You can send it back to nike to be repair for free. It is done by parsec located here http://www.nikewatchrepair.com/.

How do you replace the battery in a ironman triathlon sleek digital watch


Thank you for contacting FIxYa.
Turn your Timex Ironman face down and remove the four screws holding the back cover in place.
  • Remove the back case cover by gently prying it up with your screwdriver. Be careful to avoid disrupting any electrical contacts with the tip of your screwdriver.
  • Remove the interior sticker that covers the battery by lifting it up with the tip of your screwdriver. It should come off relatively easily. At this point the small circular battery should be visible in the compartment.
  • Lift up the small metal clip (battery strap) that covers the battery using the tip of your screwdriver.
  • Remove the battery from its housing and replace it with your new battery (available at any electronics store or online). Reassemble the watch in the same way you to took it apart.

    Remove the back, to replace the battery


    You need either a caseback knife or caseback wrench depending on whether it's a screwdown or snap-on back. If it's a snap-on, you'll also need a caseback presser to put it back on. Using the wrong tools can easily cause damage to your watch. If the watch is "water-resistant" be sure to replace the gasket as well or it will leak - you cannot reuse the gasket. You best bet to do this without having to buy tools, find the correct battery and gasket and risking scratching the watch is to let a watch shop or jeweler do it. Most places will charge about $8 to replace the battery and gasket. Sears sometimes charges only $4 so either way it's worth it. Even though I have the tools myself I usually bring my watches in and have it done since I'd have to go out and buy the battery & gasket anyway.

    How do you put the back, back onto this fs1? The band keeps getting in the way! Back came off easily enough, popped off after unscrewed. Band is still on watch, have tried to slide back into grooves but...


    You have to remove band in order to fit caseback back onto the watch. Insert pocket knife blade between band and case lug and pry inwards. This motion should release the band. It will be a lot more difficult to fit the band back on and you will probably need to buy springbar tool. Rate me plz.

    I can't seem to remove the back casing on my Bulova watch in order to replace the battery.


    If you take a small scredriver (one that is used to repair eyeglasses) and run it gently around the rim of the back, you will feel a slight indentation where you can insert the screwdriver to open up the back. The battery is easily accesible but then it's tough to get the back back on!

    Changing a watch battery


    I used a sharp penknife blade to remove the watch front by getting right on the base and pinching the glass off, (comes off quite easily) tilt the watch out of the case and see enough to prise battery out with a needle. The battery is a Maxwell SR920W or equivalent. Have ordered new batteries on ebay.
