SOURCE: i cannot get to the battery,even with back plate off??

That additional layer actually is the +contact. Take an eyeglass and follow-up all the way to that contact into the movement till you find the small plastic hook (hooks) it is clamped on. Get the fine pointed tweezers and undo the contact by pulling the contact end outwards from the hook. The contact should release the baterry. Memorise the writings on the baterry and buy exactly the same one.

Opposite these two screws, the battery retaining clip goes down over a lug on the plastic body of the movement, and to the clockwise side of this protruding clip is a small extra piece of metal. Push a this screw driver or such between the plastic and the clip and it will pop up. Remove the battery and before replacing it, short out with a metal object the centre of the revealed movement with the small sticking up contact which was under the battery. Put the new battery in and set the hands to 12 o'clock - and it won't go until after midnight when it's received a radio signal.
(I don't have the instructions but managed to get the hands to rotate continuously by shorting out two of the three little round brass contact points at the side of the movement.) Good Luck!

You need to CAREFULLY peel back that sticker and on either side of that metal clip is a way to unclip it. I really would not recommend someone changing any of their batteries unless its a "cheapo" watch! If you touch the wrong area with the tweezers you could end up having to send it in for repair! Best bet here is to take it to a reputable watch repair shop and let them do it!

How do I change batteries on a M.Z. Berger AW 213 watch


I know it's been a while since you posted this question, but I just had to do this with mine after it was lost in a drawer for a few years, and I had no luck googling so I had to figure it out for myself.

First, you have to remove the band, but you only need to do this on one end, not both. I did this by twisting the watch body around while holding the cloth/leather portion of the band still, letting the elastic part twist around with the watch body. Then, just use a fingernail to pull on the ridges on one end of one of the pins that are holding the band on; both ends are spring-loaded, so it doesn't matter which. Twist the watch body back around, and you'll now be able to flip it over to expose the back.

Now, take a thin, strong blade (I used a butterknife) and pry off the back plate. There's a tab on the upper right edge of the back plate to make this much easier. Since it probably came off in the process, place the rubber sealant ring back around the edge of the backplate.

Once you have the back plate off, there's a thin metal piece covering the battery that's held on with one scr?w. Remove that with an eyeglass screwdriver or any other similarly-sized Phillips-head screwdriver. There's just a small tab holding the metal piece in place on the other side, so just flip the metal piece up a bit and pull it out. You can now take the battery (a CR2016 3-volt watch battery) right out.

But wait, what's this? Beneath that battery, separated by a small plastic insert, is another, smaller one, a 377/376 1.55-volt watch battery. The 377/376 powers the analog movement, while the CR2016 powers all the digital stuff and the backlight.

Replace both batteries, making sure to place the plastic insert back on top of the 377/376 before putting the CR2016 back in, and follow the steps in reverse to put the watch back together. You may have some difficulty getting the back plate back on, but I just pressed one side in and held it while I tapped the other side down with my fist.

Needs batteries lionel collectable train watch need user guide and battery size


The Lionel Collectable Train Watch has 3 batteries in it. Two are for the whistle and one for the watch. All of them are V377 or 377 disk batteries. Gently pop off the back cover as most watches come off the same way. The battery by itself toward the middle is the train timepiece watch battery and is installed with the + side up toward you. The two batteries toward the edge are the whistle batteries, and you have to be very careful in changing them. Thee us a rotating contact that is plastic coated, over the batteries. NOTE: THE BATTERIES ARE NOT BOTH IN THE SAME DIRECTION. ONE IS UP AND ONE IS DOWN. (LOOK VERY CAREFULLY FOR A + AND - SIGN ON RIGHT NEXT TO EACH BATTERY.) For this reason, it is recommended to only change ONE battery at a time, so you will not get them mixed up. Gently spin the contact one direction, and one of the batteries will be clear and come out. Change that battery. Now rotate the contact back to the original position over both batteries, and continue rotating in that direction until the second battery is clear and can be removed. Change that battery. Now you can confirm that you still have one battery up and one down. Rotate the contact back to its original position, centering it on each battery. This contact has a layer of plastic material covering it on top so that it will not contact the watch case. If this plastic coating is damaged, it can damage the watch. If it is damaged, you might put a small piece of tape over the contact, to prevent other damage. NOTE that close to the edge of the watch is a very, very small spring sticking up. Make sure that spring is still vertical, as it is very delicate and can be damaged easily. That spring as well as the metal arm sticking up are part of the speaker circuit and must be in their place when the cover is replaced, as the speaker is in the cover. Now gently replace the cover until it snaps down. You will see the train moving around the dial and you can push the button and hear the whistle. Incorrect changing of these batteries by persons in jewelers departments of stores like Walmart and Target, have damaged more of these watches than you would like to believe. Hope this helps. (By the way, I do not have a brochure for the watch at this time.)

I bought a watch and we can't get it to work. We think the battery needs to be changed.


If you take a look at the back of the watch, look for screws holding on the back plate. If there are screws (usually, if they are there there is one in each corner -- unscrew them. If there are no screws in the back of the watch, look VERY carefully at where the backing for the watch connects to the front piece of the watch. There should be a small indentation somewhere along the rim -- use a knife or a small screwdriver in that groove and pop the watch backing off.
Once you have the back of the watch off, you will see the battery right there. Sometimes they just pop out (held in by the watch back) ... sometimes there is a small piece of metal holding it in (in which case you should try to rotate the metal piece off the battery -- don't bend it).
Once the battery is out, take it to a store that sells watch batteries and match the battery type exactly (a lot of watch batteries look the same, but you need an exact match). Put the new battery in, cover it with the metal tab (if there was one) by rotating the tab back over the battery like you found it. Put the watch backing back on (and replace the screws if there were any).
Hopefully, that will kick start your watch for you, and you should be all set :-)

Where is the second battery located on a timex indiglo ?


The second battery is located underneath the top part of watch movement wich consists of two parts screwed or clipped together. Actually it is the bottom, not the top part, as 99% of watches are opened from the caseback side.
Some watches are assembled in the way, that after extracting the big battery, you can reach the second battery through the hole in movement. If this is not a solution in your particular case, then you have to take apart watch movement to reach the second battery.
If movement parts are held together by screws- simply unscrew them. If movement is held together with 'clip-on' steel plate- you have to unclip the plate by pulling all clips outwards from movement.
Allways memorise the polarity of batteries and the correct position of every watch movement part, even screws. This will make reassembly easy and correct. If there are any screws you need to unscrew- do not mix them up as they can be different lengths and sizes. Screw them back in the same holes they came out.

Do not panic yet - all you need is the battery replacement.
Don't mind that the watch is less than a year old - it may laid in sellers store for a year or so and as the watches are not refitted with the brand new battery at the selling point, they may have underpwered battery much more quicker than you expected
Find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for battery replacement. Your watch will tick as brand new and will last much longer then before.

Replace a band on a fossil watch brand 2753 georgia bulldogs


Bands are held to the watch body by springpins. To disengage them, I use a fine blade knife, and pull one end of the pin down by causing the blade to bite into the metal of the pin, between the eye of the band and the watch body. This method will work when dealing with leather straps, perhaps not with a metal band, depending on how much clearance there is between the watch fork and the band's eye.
If there is no clearance, it may be necessary to destroy the springpin to get the band free. Replacement pins can be purchased at a watch repairer.
Replacing batteries: You need the back off. Some screw on, most press in. Press- ins can usually be released with a knife blade, or small leverage device if there is a specific release place on the rear cover. On odd occasions, it becomes necessary to "use a hammer and chisel". Not easy.
Screw- off backs need a tool to engage the slots on the rear. Sometimes can be done with a pair of long- nose pliers.
The backs often have a fine rubber sealing ring, for water resistance.This needs to be put back in place carefully.
The batteries are held in place by various means, spring tension, clamping etc. Sometimes a screw or two must be loosened to free the battery.
Really, it is all a job for the experienced.
I only do work on my own and other family member's watches. I have a range of tools I have made for these. I wouldn't risk doing outsiders' watches. I do bands and batteries, but leave it at that.
