If its flat with no notches then you can use a pocket knife or small flat blade and look for a notch underneath the case back, there is usually an indentation where the case remover can slip in . Then you have to carefully force the knife inside and wiggle it up and down till it pops off. Be very careful you can cut yourself doing this or even damage the watch by slipping the blade inside and ruining the movement.

If it has a screw back you would see notches on the back of the case going around the diameter usually 6 or so notches. There you would need a special watch opener tool that fits into those holes and would unscrew it.

I would recommend taking it to a fast fix or batteryplus for about 7 dollars you can have them replace it. That way you can prevent yourself from ruining your watch or hurting yourself.

if you do open the watch up be careful not to touch the copper coil if you scratch that you will ruin the movement and need that replaced. if its flat with no notches then you can use a pocket knife or small flat blade and look for a notch underneath the case back, there is usually an indentation where the case remover can slip in .

How to replace the battery of a emporio armani ar0106


Do you have a photo of the watch case back? It's either going to unscrew in which case you may need a special took, or it might be a snap-back case in which case it can be pried off.
With the case back off, its best to use a magnifying glass or eye loupe to look closely and determine how the battery is held in place. It's usually not to difficult to discern how to remove it (if you send me the movement number I can guide more specifically. It's important to replace it with the same battery and it will be numbered for identification.

It will either unscrew if evenly spaced notches exist around the cap's edge if threaded or snap off if a small cavity exists beneath the cap's edge to insert a jeweler's screwdriver.

Is a special tool required to reinstall the back after replacing the battery.


mcdevito75 here, Not really, but it depends on the maker of your watch, if the back prys off then it simply snaps back on, if there are screws holding the back on you"ll nedd Jewelers screwdrivers, if there are square holes around the back you"ll need a special tool to unscrew the back. Best Bet, have a small watch repair shop change your battery.

How to change battery


  • Spread the towel out on a flat surface.
  • Remove the watchband if necessary in order to access the back of the watch.
  • Unscrew the back protector from the watch using the correct size miniature screw driver. Place the screws in a small pile on the towel. Be careful not to drop them as they are difficult to find.
  • Remove the back plate by unscrewing the small screws. There is a tiny spring on the underneath of the back plate. It may be visible, or not. Make sure not to turn the watch upside down or the spring will dislodge.
  • Remove the rubber protector to find the battery.
  • Use sharp point tweezers to remove the clasp covering the battery. There is a small hole at one end of the clasp. Insert one end of the tweezers into the hole to spring the clasp loose.
  • Remove the old battery with tweezers.
  • Insert New Battery and Reassemble Watch
  • Pick up the new battery using regular tweezers and put it into place. Do not touch the battery with your fingers.
  • Replace the clasp over the top of the new battery.
  • Perform a reset by touching the AC contact with one part of the tweezers and the back of the battery with the other part. Hold for a few seconds. Lift the watch carefully and look up at the front to make sure the watch is working. Do not turn the watch over.
  • Replace the rubber cover.
  • Replace the back plate by screwing the small screws back into place.
  • Replace the back protector by screwing the small screws back into place.
  • Reattach the watch band to the watch face.

  • Feel a bit unnerved by this? Find a local jeweler. Best regards.

    Want to change 377 battery in Embassy Men's Watch but don't know if back snaps off or screws off......seems like it should be more obvious than this. Can anyone help?


    Casebacks can be attached in several ways. The most common is a snap-on type. The back will be smooth and if you look closely around the edge you should see a small slot somewhere along the edge where you can insert the edge of a caseback removal knife - it looks like a small oyster shucking knife - to pry the case open. The caseback me be very difficult to snap back on and require the use of a caseback plier or pressing tool. If the caseback is held in place by screws, you can carefully unscrew them using a good quality jeweler's screwdriver. the real cheap mini-divers will bend and scratch the watch. Another common method is a screwdown caseback. You will see indentaitions on the edge of the case back to recieve a caseback wrench to unscrew it. If your watch is water resistant, don't forget to replace the gasket as they are only good once. Most watch shops will replace the battery while you wait for about $8 so that may be your best bet.

    Remove the back, to replace the battery


    You need either a caseback knife or caseback wrench depending on whether it's a screwdown or snap-on back. If it's a snap-on, you'll also need a caseback presser to put it back on. Using the wrong tools can easily cause damage to your watch. If the watch is "water-resistant" be sure to replace the gasket as well or it will leak - you cannot reuse the gasket. You best bet to do this without having to buy tools, find the correct battery and gasket and risking scratching the watch is to let a watch shop or jeweler do it. Most places will charge about $8 to replace the battery and gasket. Sears sometimes charges only $4 so either way it's worth it. Even though I have the tools myself I usually bring my watches in and have it done since I'd have to go out and buy the battery & gasket anyway.

    How to remove back cover and change batery. This is a Seiko watch, Stan Bixler sbixler@socal.rr.com


    Not sure which Seiko this is. If it does not have a snap back case the it is a screw on case back. A special wrench is needed to unscrew it. If you don't have a case back wrench you will either need to buy one (the good ones that won't damage your watch are about $50 US) or take your watch in and have the battery changed.

    Hope this helps.

    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.
