Question about Watches
I replaced my battery too...same watch same ugly condition where you can't set time nor does the light work.
I do know what the problem is: there was an ultra small copperish spring...about 1/6 the size of the other little wire spring that you have to short with twizers to reset time. Anyway, I lost this part...and even if I found it, I wouldn't know where it goes. I came on-line to find where the missing part goes...but everyone has the same issue as me. any jeweler would loose this parts just like me...it's the master contact the enables power to all the side pushbuttons

Now we know how Charlie Brown felt. My watch has sat idle for several months after the battery died. Today I decided to change it. I also lost the little spring. The battery is my watch is a generic 2025. The case screws are stainless steel and thus not magnetic. I also read the directions and to no avail. However, I took a sewing needle and 'poked around'. Somehow I got it to work. I think it was this..If you are looking at the back of the guts of the watch with the LED switch on your left, just to the right of the battery is a small plastic 'button' that holds the battery in position. Just below that is a lever that looks like it is contacting the side of the battery. I can slide a piece of paper between its contact and the battery so I took my might sewing needle and pushed it against the battery and it works! I guess these two points are the ones you are supposed to 'short with the tweezers'. Pain to set but......I like the display.. which you should clean with a microfiber cloth and a bit of breath prior to assembly...should you have trouble with the case screws not staying on the screwdriver point apply a tiny amount of white glue and they will stay put. Good luck

Well, I sent my watch to mmlars38 and I am amazed at how it came back. It works great, and all the buttons work again. I'm amazed at how fast it got here-in like 3 days it was back qt my place. Awesome!
So, thanks mmlars38, feel free to call upon the karatehero if you ever need anything! I owe you one huge!
