You will have to get the battery from the zodiac service center directly. They only deals with their party.And they only provide the battery and other parts of the watch.

What is the battery number for a fossil am3848

We can tell you the battery number you may need for your Fossil Watch, but it is not worth you to change it yourself.
Many people think that replacing a battery to a watch is an easy task, but that is far from truth.
Note that once a watch is opened ( if you can get it without leaving marks all around the case) all circuits are extremely delicate. If you may touch some part with any metal instrument or even with your fingers, you will loose your watch.

Best you can do is take it to be replaced to a watch shop, sure you have one near you.

But let me insist, if you need the battery number, let us know and we will provide. is Fossil authorized dealer, you can find our complete Fossil watches and Straps for Fossil watches here:

My fossil blue watch stops working i lost my manual, i would just like to know if the said model of my watch is automatic, or quartz?

You don't say which model watch you have.

If you go to, at the bottom of the screen you will see a list, click on "customer care" and under "product info" you will see "watch instructions".

Go through the list of illustrations to find yours and download.

I have a zodiac 1882 what type of battery does it need?

It's a 395 (SR 927 SW), however you're going to need a case wrench and a 4-pin vise to get the back off so you're looking at a minimum of $40 for the battery and the tools and that's if you know where to look. The other problem is the rubber gasket which may need to be replaced as well. Unless you happen to have a supply of them handy for that exact size case, your watch will no longer be water resistant to the manufacturers specifications. You could probably wash your hands with it but I wouldn't recommend anything more intense. The problem that you have is that you won't know if you need a new gasket until you get the case open and as noted, that's cost you a minimum of $40 to find out and you get the pleasure of having a set of tools that you'll probably never use again. Or, you could save yourself the money, headache and aggravation and of course the high probability of you damaging it because you lack the experience to change the battery on a screw-back, water resistant timepiece and just take it to a local jeweler, pay $10 - $15 to professionals who know what they are doing and will include the replacing of the gasket at no extra charge.

Hi! I would just like to ask if you have fossil watch with this product code ''ES2453'' & ''ES2354''. I' eve bought the said two watches I hardly find the said...

If you type ES2453 in google you should be able to find advertisements for this watch, even though it is not on their web site.

I suspect that it is a discontinued model, as all the models on their web site have larger numbers.

I just replaced the battery on a fossil watch and it won't work. How to you reset it? or what else needs to be done? Please help me. thanks.

mcdevito75 here, Your Fossil watch should work with the battery change, of course it will need to be re-set. You"ll have to double check the battery install, make sure the battery contacts are clean, use a piece of paper towel and carefully clean the battery contacts. Hopefully your new battery is not dead. Another thing to check for, is that the buttons contacts are lined up with the quartz movement. While you double check your battery install, carefully press 1 button at a time, and make sure each button is making contact with the quartz mechanism, many times during a battery change to quartz movement may move just slightly but enough to keep the buttons from contacting the movement, this will keep the watch from working. Hopefully 1 or all of these is the answer for your Fossil watch.
