You will have to take to a local jeweler who has a watch press.

How to change the battery replacement on a narmi watch

Changed brighton watch battery. The back will not snap back on


To be properly replaced, many friction backs cannot be snapped back in place without using a crystal press.

I recommend visiting your local Certified Master Horologist to clean the connections of the battery and install a premium Energizer silver oxide battery that will not leak. We emphasize these batteries because many other brands leak and ruin movements, costing 100.00+ in repair or replacement many times.

Many jewelry stores may also own a crystal press if it may be more convenient for you to visit them, but remember that they are not necessarily watch professionals, and if the caseback is improperly installed, your stem (which sets your watch) or your crystal may break.

Replaced my battery but can't get the backing of the watch abck on.


For both the screw and snap backs, make sure the battery is exactly the same as was in the watch. Although they look the same, these batteries vary in thickness. With the battery installed, sight across the watch bottom to ensure the battery (or no other component) rises above the level of the watch case. Once all is level, replace the watch back (making sure the gasket is properly placed.

How do I change battery on my gametime watch? how do I remove back casing?


My GAMETIME watch has a back which just pops off. Once in the battery compartment, you will see plastic disk, with a molded frame. This just simply pulls off, and is not secured in place. You should not have to pry it.

Once this is removed, the battery is revealed. My model takes a SR626SW. To remove the cell, use something small to get under the exposed side. You should be able to pop the cell out without much force.

Before you replace the battery take this opportunity to clean the rim where the backing was. Carefully install the new cell, and replace the cover.

My battery wend dead. the store will not open the back of the watch to change it. how do i open the back to change the battery?


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
Most Skagen watches have a snap-in, snap-out back. You will need a case back opening tool ($3 to $14) or a slotted jeweler's screw driver or knife blade to pry it open. Do this over a counter or towel in case the battery pops out. Examine and make note of which side of the battery is up. Get the number off the battery, better yet take it with you to Wal-Mart, Radio Shack or anywere else they sell batteries. Buy a replacement, install it, and try to reinstall the back. Good luck!
Do not try placing your Skagen watch face down on a soft towel, on a hard surface, and then then try to mussle in the back, or tap it with a mall or hammer. You very likely will break the crystal.
Without a Case Closing Plier ($15 to $20) or a Case Closing Press ($15 to $50) you will not be able to get the back to snap back in. You could try a conventional vise and size some vinyl or plastic washer to to fit the bezel and protect the crystal/face of the watch, and some flat vinyl/plastic that covers the back of the watch. Align the front and back plastic pieces with the back, carefully insert it in your vice, and tighten until the back snaps in. This could be fatal if you mess up!
A simpler solution is to take your watch to a place that specializes in selling and servicing a variety of watches, hopefull Skagens, maybe a jewelry store, and have them replace the battery. They should have the closing tool and you can expect to pay $10 to $15 for the battery and installation.
If you like Skagens, you can go on-line and find the appropriate tools to do this. Or, pay the watch store. Many Skagens use up batteries at the rate of every 10 to 15 months. Also, you can look up Skagen on line and see if they will service your watch. They are located in Reno, Nevada

Battery....can I get a battery replacement anywhere?

Get the number off the battery, or take the battery with you to Wal-Mart, Radio Shack or anywere else they sell batteries. Buy a replacement, install it, and try to reinstall the back. You may even consider taking the watch with you to the above retailers...some of them are willing and able to change the battery for you.

I had the same problem. The thing that was most frustrating is that I have a standard tool to remove and install screw in watch backs, but Timex in its infintie wisdom, decided to make this model withta snap-in back.

I tired usinga a set of adjustable locking pliers with rubber claw covers. I tried holding one side with finger and thumb while using the pliers on the other to no avail.

robatbath's answer about jewelers having a special press led me to a solution. I just happened to have (2) 1.25" steel washers with 1/4 inch holes. I placed one on the face and one on the back. This way I could use the locking pliers (with rubber covers on) to press in the center of each side. The back snapped in fine. You can get washers and pliers at any hardware store.

Have timex watch had battery replaced and watch quit working, she had to use clamp device to instal battery


If you had the battery replaced, I'm guessing that the watch wasn't working when you brought it in for a new battery. It may not have needed a new battery. You might need a new watch. I've never heard of anyone needing a clamp for a Timex digital watch. In my experience, they use phillips screws to hold the back to the case. I have a case press for snap-on backs, but that's still unusual for a Timex unless it has a BIG case. I think your watch was shot before you replaced the battery.
