You may need watchmaker tools to open it without scratching it. You'll also want to replace the gasket to keep it water resistant and you may need to use a caseback presser to put it back on. Best bet is to take it to a watch shop and let them do it correctly. Cost is about $8 at most places.

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.

Cannot get the back cover on my eddie bauer watch after replacing battery


Watch makers/technicians use a special press to replace the back. You can get these presses but the cost can be more than it is worth.

Since the watch is most likely water resistant and you will have to go to a watch maker/technician to replace the back anyway I recommend having the rear seal inspected and replaced if needed and having the watch pressure tested to be sure that it is sealed to factory specifications.

Eddie bauer watch runs slow


This usually means the battery is dying. Usually the backs on these are very tight, and the back has to be taken off to replace the battery. You might be able to get the back off without damaging the watch, but you probably will not get it back on without breaking the crystal. Best thing to do is take it to a reputable watch repair place or jewelry shop and have them replace the battery for you. Before they begin, make sure they are willing to replace the crystal for free for you if they break it!

Get the back off my eddie bauer watch


when you look at the back are there three small rectangular indents evenly spaced on the edge on the back? If so you'll need a special tool for opening waterproof watches. the tool adjusts to fit the three indents then press down as you turn counterclockwise. you can find the tool on amazon.com or your local jewelry store. make sure the gasket is in place and not damaged before screwing the back on.

here is a link to the tool

I just bought a Mondaine travel alarm pocket watch. Instructions say the crown has 3 positions. 1> Home normal for a quartz watch. 2> Pull out 1/2 way to set alarm. 3> Pull out all way to set time. My...


It seems like your watch has a little short stem and that's why it has only 2 positions. This does not affect battery in any way, nor the timekeeping.
The only downside of this is that you can accidentaly reset alarm time without knowing it as your watch crown is in permanent 1/2 way position.
If you are happy with that - keep your watch.

Use a needle nose pliers and turn counter clock-wise. If you find it hard to open still you may have to put it in some kind of vise and then turn it. If you still have problems PLEASE don't hesitate to write back and I will be glad to help you! Good Luck!!

Eddie Bauer watch.


these watches are waterproof so the stem is screwed down to seal out water. Try turning the stem to unscrew it somewhat , then pull out the stem to set.
