Question about ESQ 550 SLX 07100599 Wrist Watch

2 Answers

I cannot remove (or for others who may search this issue "get the back off") my Esq by Movado E5055 watch. There is a little "lip" on the back cover. Right now, the position of it is right next to one of the little ends of the case where the band pops into. I've slid a (dull) razor blade, miniature screw driver and various other objects in there to pop off the back. Nothing has worked; I feel like I will break it before I can get the back off so this tells me I'm not doing a step or I'm doing something wrong. I've also tried with the stem pushed in and pulled out. Please assist. Thanks much.

You need to buy some watch maker tools to get that back off as it is friction fitted and is difficult to remove as try to lever it off . If you do not intend to remove it or other watch backs for battery replacements, then the best solution is to take it to a Jeweler as he/she will have the proper tools to remove it and a battery replacement for about ten bucks. failing to do that look at the following site for the tools. http://www.harborfreight.com/catalogsearch/result?category=General+Merch&q=watch+repair+kit

    Harbor Freight has a back removal tool that is inexpensive and works well. This watch does NOT have a pop off back. It must be unscrewed using a tool. Once inside, the battery is held down with two screws. You need to loosen one, then the retainer will slide away. I'd suggest doing it on a white cloth and using magnifier headgear. Makes it much easier.

Nowhere in the little operations manual that came with my watch does it give the accuracy of the timepiece. Where can I get that information? I have a movado ESQ bracer chronograph.


Interesting question. I know little about watches but, as you would know, your watch does have a quartz movement, so, from Wikipedia, 'Quartz clock':

Standard-quality resonators of this type are warranted to have a long-term accuracy of about 6 parts per million at 31 degrees C (87.8 F): that is, a typical quartz wristwatch will gain or lose 15 seconds per 30 days (within a normal temperature range of 5 deg C / 41 F to 35 deg C / 95 F) or less than a half second clock drift per day when worn near the body.

If a quartz wristwatch is "rated" by measuring its timekeeping characteristics against an atomic clock's time broadcast, to determine how much time the watch gains or loses per day, and adjustments are made to the circuitry to "regulate" the timekeeping, then the corrected time will easily be accurate within 10 seconds per year. This is more than adequate to perform celestial navigation.



Assuming that you have a computer with internet-synced time and good internet, meaning around 1/100 second accuracy, why not compare the watch to the computer over the space of a week?

I changed the battery in my esq swiss watch and can't get the back on the watch. What is the trick to re-installing the back


ooh, ESQ by Movado. These case backs are often pressure fit, just like Movado, and are notoriously difficult to reinstall. It sounds like it is going to take a watch press to install your caseback. This is an expensive tool which any jeweler that changes batteries will have. There is no real safe way to this without a press.
Now, I have just supposed that this is a pop off; if it is a screw on back then it would have had to have been unscrewed to get it off. If it is a screw-back then you will likely need to get a caseback wrench to tighten it down enough.

This is a link to the Movado Group service centers, they make ESQ watches. It appears your watch has had water seep inside the case. It could be the seals around the caseback or crown. Whether repair is worth it, is up to you. I have had Casio dive watches I have sent into repair because I liked them, not for the value of the watch. In general ESQ makes a nice watch and if you like it, why not see what repair would cost. However, if this is a moisture problem, more than just visible corrosion has probably occured and the movement could compromised, if that is the case the costs of repair might outweigh just purchasing another watch. Good luck and I hope you found this helpful,

You can either contact Movado directly (they make the esq watches) or you can ask any REAL jewelry store to contact the company for you and ask about this as long as they carry either Movado or Esq in their store (don't ask the jewelry counter at your local department store).
