Hi there!

Actually, you have 3 possibilities for taking the back off a watch. It depends of the type of watch you have. First type, 4 little screws, one in each corner of the watch. Use a precision screwdrivers and you won't have any problem. The 2nd type is a cap that you'll need to pop. If you don't have watch tools, i suggest you use a butter knife, it's relatively safe and most of the time you can manage to get it open. The last type is a lot more tricky. You need to squeeze that cap in a tool and unscrew the cap. I never managed to do it without the right tool, even with the tool it's really hard. So if you have that type of watch, I suggest you go in your local jewelery store and ask them to open it for you.

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.)

How do you change the battery in a black dice flow watch


You need to open watch case back using appropriate tools. There are two batteries in this model - one for each watch movement. Unscrew/un-clip battery contact. Memorize polarity (+ and -). Take the battery to your nearest watch battery shop or watch repair shop and buy the same one. Fit new battery back in watch (remember polarity!). Fit back contact as it was. Close the watch case back. Set the time. Done.

I have a Timex Ironman T563719J. The digital clock is working, but the analog portion has stopped. Any ideas?


There are two batteries in the watch. One for the digital watch and the other for the analog watch. The battery for the analog side probably needs changing but when the back is opened, you might as well change both batteries.

Hi-cant get the back off my M&S watch to change battery?


The slots are intended for a special tool.

Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving.
