    how do you open this pocket watch to see if it has a battery.

  • pffogg Aug 22, 2010

    Thank you so much - it worked. It was hard to get off the back of the watch. But we did it and inserted a new battery. Sorry it took so long to get back to you, we had to go out for awhile. Thanks again. Pat

Hi,

Almost all the brands and models ( pocket watch ) would have Battery. I could provide a generic procedure :-

1. Flip over your pocket watch. Remove the back of your watch. The back of watches are either screwed on by four small Phillips head screws (unscrew them) or the watch has a press inserted back (slide a thin knife blade under the edge of the back of the watch and pry it off).

2 Remove the circular watch battery out of the back of the watch.

3 Take the battery to any department store or watch store and
purchase a new replacement battery.

4 Insert the new battery into the back of the watch.

5 Screw on or push on the back of the watch. Set the watch to the correct time.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Invicta pro diver 4469 under guarantee stopped working bought 10th July 2009 can i get this repaired in the UK with sending back to Florida thanks chris malone


I have looked too and can only find their Florida address.

This is unusual, as most makers have authorised dealers throughout the world.

Perhaps a local dealer may be able to locate an authorised repair agent.

My watch has stopped working


mcdevito75 here, Unless you have a good knowledge of takeing apart, even just the back off your watch / pocket watch it"s best to look for a small watch repair shop in your area, but here is what you can do to possibly start your watch / pocket watch. If your watch / pocket watch hasn"t been wound in some time and that time varies from watch to watch, the oil in the watch can become a bit thick so as to not allow the mechanism to work smoothly, leave the watch / pocket watch in a warm place, window sill in the sunlight wrapped in a paper towel for anywhere between a few minutes to 1/2 hour, after the watch / pocket watch has been warmed up hopefully the oil in the mechanism has liquified enough to allow the movement to start working. You can also give the movement a little boost, after the watch /pocket watch is warm, pull out the stem as if to set the time of day, move the stem and hands, sometimes this action will get the watch ticking again. If this fails, BEST BET specially if this is an expebsive or keepsake watch, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for serviveing. approx. $45.00

Trying to figure out how to adjust time


You have broken or displaced setting lever in your pocket watch.
That's why it is not possible to set the time. No matter in what position the winder is, the setting gear are not engaged from the clutch wheel and the time adjustment can not be done. At the same time the crown wheel still engaged in any position and this is why it still winding in both positions.
As repairs of this can be done only by skilled man, go and see your nearest watchmaker and ask for help.

It is understandable that I can not execute repairs over the net, so, rate it as if I did it, please.

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.
