Manual for watch xonix dg 300 wr 100 m

In many watches you have two separate batteries for the analogue part and for the digital part. I am not sure if this is true for your case. I would go to a watch maker to look at it ad change the two batteries.

How do i change the battery in a Gucci 2400 L watch?

Hello Jeneane Blacine,

Beautiful watch...

A picture of the BACK-SIDE would allow me a better GUESS.

I am purely an amateur horologist (all personal opinions)...
Like... a 5x jewelers loupe works fine for battery changing.

I did look for your battery number.. but found no references.

The American Watch Institute (AWI) produces a book that lists every battery and cross references GLOBAL numbers from the VARIOUS manufactures...

Once I open a watch...
I always write down THAT WATCH and Battery NUMBER and keep it with that pamphlet
(about $5 in 1998 - 2000 edition).

I start with an soft bristle brush (tooth brush works fine) & carefully go all over the watch cleaning every crack, joint & crevice... followed by a soft clean cloth to polish the case. Once I am confident nothing will be introduced into the watch... I open the case (table top, good light. jewelers loupe, case cracker , jaxa (style) wrench or jewelers screw-drivers... really nice forceps above a clean floor... (a screw WILL GET AWAY ...a flash light across the surface of the floor... will cast a decent shadow... or (my mother advised me to use of a lady's stocking over the vacuum nozzle also worked (she was a very smart lady)).

Some watches have press in backs... some secure with screws... a lot of round body watches actually have screw in covers...

They are all different (certainly delicate).

After taking a couple of our watches to the PROFESSIONALS
only to see the gouge & scratch the cases... I figured I would scratch much less (& free)... As the decades have passed ... I can get in & out.. just fine.

Acceptable quality tools are available on-line... and a little patience
will make your cases last longer... As for their water "resistance"...
THAT'S A WHOLE other article... Suffice it to say... I do a better jo than the battery guy at the strip mall ...

Better tools produce better work... but it is the skilled touch of a caring hand that guarantees the best results... No mater who they are... everybody needs to start at the beginning.

Good luck...

Does a 550excell watch take a battery

Don't really know but if you take it to a watchmaker or one of those shopping centre booths that do watch glasses and batteries etc, they will know straight away.

I replaced the battery in my watch. About a week later, it started getting slow. I watched it and noticed that it would tick for 2 seconds then stop for a second, tick for 2 seconds then stop for a second,...

It sounds like one of the hands is pausing as it brushes against something. It sounds like a treasured watch. I would take it to a professional watch repair shop. Mine was losing a minute or two per hour from the hand being slightly bent. Good luck!

Just bought a new diesel dz 7069 watch and theres no battery, but i cant figure out how to open it to put a battery in. Any suggestions?

Generally Diesel uses a pop off back. The pop off back will be smooth and have no indication of how to come off.

To remove a pop off back use a watch knife and press it straight into the separation between the case and back. Start at the upper right corner. Do not use a sharp knife or widdle back and forth as this may damage the surface where the seal is or make burrs. Once you have driven the knife straight in you can move around the back repeating this until the back is completely off.

Hi there i have bought a second hand tag heuer carrera tachymeter,i dont have a user manual,but cant seem to get the chronograph functions to work ?

Great watch! Operation should be pretty straight forward. The top button starts the chrono and stops it. The bottom button resets it. To calibrate the sweep arm into the right position pull the crown out to the first or second set position and press the start button until the sweep arm is in the start position you desire. This is typically 12:00 or 0.
If your chrono is not working then have the battery checked. If the battery has been recently replaced then make sure the watch doesn't need to be cleared.
I recommend you take this to a watch maker/technician who will be familiar with the service requirements of this model including resealing and pressure testing the watch to be sure it is sealed to its marked water resistance specifications.

Yes, your watch is battery driven. The best way is to find your nearest watchmakers shop and ask for replacement. If you want to do it yourself, then open the watch caseback, release the battery and memorise all the writings on battery. You have to buy exactly the same one and replace it.
