Got a new battery in my kra and everything is working except the two time needles (hour and minute) is it broke?

If it was working OK before the battery was replaced, then it is unlikely that it should fail because you changed the battery.

Most electronic watches have an inscription "AC" on the chassis of the watch near the battery.

Instructions say that this point (or somewhere near it) should be connected to the case of the battery. Any metal implement will do e.g. a pair of tweezers would be ideal.

Althoughno maker seems to be willing to explain why you need to do this, I think that it resets the electronics.

I've an under water watch can the battery be replaced with out any problems? Will it leak if I have the battery replaced? If I can replace battery how do I know what size if I can do it by my self? Thank...

There is always a risk of difficulty if you try to change a battery yourself. I have seen many cries for help after battery changing.

If you need your watch to be waterproof for diving, then it would be advisable to send it to the makers service center, so that the water resistance can be guaranteed.

I have a Triax Speed 50 Nike watch and the local jewelry store would not change the battery because the possibilty of damaging the wrist band that needs to be removed. Any instructions on how I can change...

You can't change it yourself without doing damage. You will need to send into Nike or more accurately an authorized nike watch repair center that is close to you hopefully.

Nike customer service or a google search for authorized nike watch repair in XXX-city will get one close to you.

I need to replace the battery in my parsifal watch. The battery was replaced last year so maybe there is something wrong with the watch? What type of battery does this watch require as I'd like to...

Let me be honest with you. Dont. If you dont know what your are doing to change a battery, you will do more harm then good. And once that happens, you will lose your RW warranty.
My best solution is to take to a certified local RW dealer and if you dont know who is in your area, check this link:

You can send it via instructions given above, or take to a local jeweler. They will be able to pull out the old battery to see what it takes. Usually is less then $15 to have someone else remove and replace.

How to open the digital side to replace the battery? I took it to a jeweler but all they did was scratch the case!!! Thanks for you help.

Sound like you will have to send it back to TAG!

Replacing the battery yourself can be a risky business, as they are often sealed and as you found, need special tools to remove the back.

A fairly common cry is "I have changed my battery and my watch no longer works". To avoid this sending to the makers service center should be worth the expense.

If you copy "" into your search engine, you should arrive at their customer service page.

On the right is a box with a drop down menu to enter your area and then click on either one of the pictures at the bottom or the menu on the left to select the services that they offer.

Battery changed now watch not working

It sounds as if there is a detector in the watch that registers when the watch has been opened.

Perhaps there is a method of resetting your watch (perhaps known to recognized dealers?).

Read your instructions carefully to see if you can find anything about battery changing. Most makers don't recommend that you change batteries yourself, so I don't hold out much hope on that one.

Otherwise you will have to take it to a recognised dealer in your type of watch.

I need a replacement battery for an original navy seal model (3000)? Does anyone know what type and size is in these watches? Other than sending it to luminox has anyone successfully found a replacement?...

If anyone opted out to replace battery2_bing.gif in their own watch and do not know what type and size of battery is correct for replacement, just open your watch case back and reed and memorize all the writings on battery your watch allready has in it. All you can do now is to buy exactly the same replacement battery and you will never get it wrong. All that matters is the combination of letters and numbers on battery. Make is not important, so, it can be made by Casio, Maxell, Citizen, Ronda - you name it. Just make sure you are not buying some of those cheap, unknown maker batteries2_bing.gif, as they usualy lasts for about few weeks and then they are gone. Choose well known makers name and the battery will power your watch for 2-7 years, depending on each particular watch movement model. In case if you lost your original watch battery, check your watch instruction manual. If you lost both - battery and manual - then there is no other way, but to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for help. In your particular case I do not see the reason why you should find the battery, because any decent watchmaker has many different batteries in stock. All you have to do is to find your closest watch repair shop and ask watchmaker to replace the battery. No need at all to send it to Luminox, as this job can be done at any watch workshop with the same precision and quality. In addition you will save money for shipping and pay less for battery itself.
Rate me, plz.

Watch hands not moving after battery change.

I suspect that there is a setting up procedure that needs to befollowed when the batteries have been replaced. (I had a similarproblem when I did this with my watch - although the hands were moving,they were incorrect!)

I was unable to find any instructions on their web site but if you go to their web site (/ or your own area web site for Seconda, at the top of the page you will see a store locator tab, click on this to find your local store and ask them for some instructions.
