izzi, I assume you have a snap back back that won't snap back in place. I had the same problem with a Timex EXpedition. The solution should be similar. See my post" http://www.fixya.com/support/t190459-watch_battery_replacement and also the site I reference there. http://www.online-batteries.co.uk/whichbattery.shtml Good luck, Richard

Watch shops use a press to put backs on. Some will snap on using your thumbs, other need the press to apply more force.

SOURCE: How do I open my watch to replace the battery. Looks as if I need a special gadget.

Get a small screwdriver and a file, file the end of the screwdriver down to a fine edge, thin enough to fit the narrowest gap, then carefully lever the case open. Try to avoid being heavy handed, you do not want to scratch the watch when doing this. HTH.

SOURCE: How to Open a Gucci watch

Most watches are either screwed on and typically have a series of small notches around the circumference of the case back. A special tool is generally called for. Otherwise they are "snap back" . These are simply pressed on. To remove you can carefully use a regular knife in the absence of a "case knife". There is usually a small gap/groove/notch area to insert the balde and lift the back off.

SOURCE: Can't get the back plate of a Timex Indiglo WR30M watch back on

It is either a screw on case back or a "snap-on. I suspect that it is the latter since you don't mention that you used a tool to unscrew the case back. So getting the back on sometimes is very difficult. I have a special tool for that to apply even pressue and the necessary force and does not put pressure on the crystal. You have to be careful to not damage the crystal. If you don't get it done, then suggest you take it to a shop that has the right tool. If you have very strong thumbs you might get it done.

Take your Armitron watch to a jeweler for a demonstration of how to open it. While there, you may be able to persuade the jeweler to install a replacement battery, all for a reasonable sum.

Change battery


Usually, you remove the backplate and then the battery. Replace the battery without touching it by hand and replace the backplate.

Beep and chime will not work


I think there would have been a minute spring coming from the back of the watch module to the backplate of the watch - this spring carried a vibration / beep which echoed off the backplate. Chances are you have damaged this spring during battery change - as i did with my gShock. Basically it's nackered!
