Mcdevito75 Here, You may not be able too, not without spaecial jewlers tools, even if you get the back cover off you"ll need special screwdrivers to loosen the hold down clamp on the battery. Best Bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change.

W to changebattery #65041g


Changing the battery on most watches is fairly straightforward and needs only the usual tiny screwdriver, insulated tweezers and a large measure of patience and good eyesight.
The main problem is usually opening the case and in the case of a quality watch that is guaranteed waterproof it really should be returned to the manufacturer for battery fitting and pressure testing. If testing isn't carried out after the case has been opened the watch realistically then becomes merely water resistant rather than waterproof.

Usually it is the back of the watch case that must be opened and in the case of ordinary non-waterproof and non-water resistant types it is a simple matter to prise the back off with a thin blade and then refit it with finger pressure.
Water-resistant watch cases that have a priseable back often need the back pressing back on with force supplied either by a purpose-made press or a large bench vice. In both cases adapters are needed to prevent damage to the case and the crystal.

A lot of watches have a back that unscrews and strictly a dedicated key, wrench or spanner is needed for this task. I have managed to overcome this problem a number of times by pressing other tools "that look as if they might do the job" into service. I cannot say what it was I used as I wandered around my workshop just trying things. I think the last time a particular circlip plier did the trick.

Simpler to take the watch and have someone else replace the battery I think.

How do you take the back of a wrist watch off so you can change the battery


The Proper way is with a "watch case wrench". They can be purchased for a few dollars on Amazon and E-bay. In most cases unless you are changing many watch batteries the best option is to call around to local jewelers and pawn shops and ask how much to replace a watch battery. In my town it ranges from $30 to as little as $5.99 battery included.

Need to open. coleman 40-334 watch not sure if the back is threaded


mcdevito75 here, If the back screws down, you"ll see a series of square holes around the edge of the back cover, in this case you"ll need a special tool called a case back remover tool to un-screw the back cover. If there are no square holes on the back cover, most likely it"s a press type back cover and some of these cavers are very hard to get back on wothout another tool called a case back press tool, these mentioned tools are available on ebay, but, with just a battery replacement, the time and tools you may need the cost is more than a watch repair shop would charge you. Best Bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for this once a year or even longer battery change.

Battery replacement


Hi.

Battery replacement is done removing the back plate. The back plate is uncrewed clasping it with a special tools and rotating anti-clockwise. In absence of the special tool a common pair of tweezers will do the job.

Once the back plate is off, extreme care must be taken with the rubber seal, running around the edge of the case opening. This is very delicate, and damaging or kinking the seal may result in the watch loosing its water proof capacity. For this reason battery replacement is better done at the shop.

How do i remove the back on my sekonda mens watch


mcdevito75 here, Generally thr back is simply pryed off useing a sharp knife (steak) or with a case opener, or at times the back is screwed on, little square holes around the back of the watch require a special tool, or there may be 4 screws holding down the back to the case, even if you get the back off you may need Jewelers screwdrivers to remove / replace the battery. BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop in your area.

Battery replacement


For that you need tool called watch caseback opener. It looks like knife, only the blade is very short, curved and hardened Plenty on ebay for around 5 GBP.
Ordinary knifes wont work as they aren't hard enough and you can damage the watch and injure yourself.
If you gonna try to use chisel and hammer action, then you will damage your watch definetely.
Why don't use watchmaker services? Battery replacements are not very costly.

I can't seem to remove the back casing on my Bulova watch in order to replace the battery.


If you take a small scredriver (one that is used to repair eyeglasses) and run it gently around the rim of the back, you will feel a slight indentation where you can insert the screwdriver to open up the back. The battery is easily accesible but then it's tough to get the back back on!

Armitron y121e watch


If your Armitron has a set of 6 inset notches around the back, as does my Y121E 20/1791F Armitron Diamond, that's a screw-back case that does _not_ pop off or pry off. You'll need a case opener tool, which is basically a small tool with adjustable-gap jaws that fit into two notches on opposite sides of the case and let you unscrew it. Wal-Mart sells this tool for about five bucks, and it'll pay for itself soon enough, as many watches have screw backs, and this will fit most anything you find. Head for their jewelry department and you should find the tool hanging up with the replacement watchbands and batteries.

The case is probably screwed down fairly tight against its O-ring seal, so make sure the tool is seated properly in the case notches, and turn it slowly and firmly counterclockwise to work it loose.

If your watch is like mine, it'll take a #377 cell, but wait until you've opened yours up to be sure.
