Hi, this is easy to do what you need is a sharp knife then the back of the watch will have a case on it smaller than the watch you will see its raised and has an edge running all the way round. Sometimes their is a tiny recess running along the top or bottom of this cover this is to put knife into to pry the back off, not all watches have this. If yours dont then get sharp knife and pry the cover off from either the top or bottom it can be tight but get the knife so your putting pressure on to lift the cover up. The cover is only pushed in and it clips in so their is nothing holding it down.
Just keep prying it with a thin sharp knife untill the back lifts off it shouldnt be that difficult but just use thin knife and keep working it so as to lift the back cover off the watch.
This will give you access to the battery and once replaced the back just pushes on by hand push it on hard as this seals it from water and dust.

Need correct replacement battery


the watch movement deters which battery the watch needs it is very important you do not put a battery in that doesn't suit the watch as it can short out the circuit however you can get the correct size in a gold seal quality which should not leak, also the older the watch, the more demanding the watch becomes on the battery as the movement components start to experience wear and tear

Need to put new battery in, can't get the back off! No little ridge or lip, and it's not budging. Does it open via the crystal?


Look for a very small slot that will allow you to pry the back off. This is especially common in very small womens watches

It is best to go to a watchmaker for this issue. If the battery was improperly installed, it can damage the movement or contacts, which will mean the movement must be replaced. We see this issue often. Another common problem is that the oils from the installer's fingers may be causing a bad connection if the battery and the contacts are not properly cleaned. We would use the Pulse test to see if the watch has current, if so, the movement is bad mechanically, it must be replaced. If it has no current, we would check and clean all connections and replace the battery. If there is still no current (using Pulse diagnostic) then the movement is bad and it must be replaced.
