Question about Fossil VT2654 Pocketwatch

Need to open Fossil watch

I can't seem to pry the back off like other watches I have had. I need to replace the battery. I read somewhere that it twists off and needs a special tool. I went to Wal-mart, but they aren't allowed to touch it.

How do u open back to fix an fossil black 5 atm fs-4351 hand watch


Jerry, If its smooth on the back cover, you have to pry it off carefully. Get a magnifying glass and look around the cover edge, there should be a small under cut. Pry at this point with a penknife blade or similar. If the cover has 6 or 8 small indentations in it then it likely unscrews but you may still need to see a watch shop for the tool to unscrew it.
Fossil watches have a 2 year warranty so if its inside this, take it to a dealer.

I want to change out batteries


Hello,
1. Lay the watch upside down on top of a towel or cloth on a flat workspace. Use a small flat head screwdriver or blade to pry under the watch backing, then lift the backing from the watch. Slide the battery cover to the side to access and remove the battery.

2.Take the battery to any electronics store to purchase a replacement. Bringing the old battery will ensure you install the correct type of battery in your Fossil watch.

3. Replace the battery and the battery cover. Apply pressure to the backing until it "pops" back into the watch.

Fossil ch2360 can not figuare out how to get to the battery


mcdevito75 here, Most Fossil Watches have a press fit back cover. First locate ant tab, or indentation that is on the back cover linning up with the case itself, Carefully use a steak knife under that tab or in the indentation, slot in the cover abd pry up. From there you may need a jewlers screwdriver to loosen the battery hold down plate to remove the battery. BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop in your area to change the battery.

I have a fossil watch model fs4255 leather strap dress amber dial and I want to open back to remove old battery and replace with a new. i have a watch repair tool kit and replace all my own watch batteries...


mcdevito75 here, Even with the proper tools we still have to improvise at times, Instead of useing your case opener from your tool kit, use a steak knife or similar with a sharp edge inside that groove you"ve described, the cover will pry off.

WHAT TOOL DO I NEED TO REMOVE THE BACK OF FOSSIL BLUE #BQ-9232 AND HOW AVAILABLE ARE THE BATTERIES FOR REPLACEMENT?


Most watch backs either screw off with a special case opener that every wachmaker uses or pried off with a knife like case opener or sometimes a knife. Take this to your local watchmaker for battery replacement. Batteries are readily available but are a bit tricky to install properly and are best installed by a qualified watchmaker.

How do I remove the back off a fossill watch to replace the batteries


If it doesn't have the indentations for a tool used to screw off the case back then its a pry off type and you need to use a sharp tool and pry off under the case against the band post

CH2301 battery replacement. How open compartment?


There are 2 ways that Fossil closes the caseback on their watches.  It is either a 'pop-off' caseback that you will need to pry off.  Get something very small and thin, such as a small flathead screwdriver.  There is usually a small groove somewhere around the edge of the caseback where you can insert the blade.  The other type screws off.  You will need to unscrew the caseback.  You can determine if it screws off by looking for 6 notches around the outside edge of the caseback.  You will use these notches to insert a tool to rotate the caseback off.  Without a specialized tool called a watch-wrench, I suggest bringing it to a store such as Precision Time or Tourneau.
