If you plan on doing this yourself, find a nice heavy pair of needle nose pliers and put the ends in the knotches on the casing back. Have them as far apart from each other as you can and turn counter-clockwise. If you still have problems opening, put the watch in a vise with the lugs in the teeth of the vise. DO NOT tighten too hard or you will snap the lugs. It dosn't have to be tight , just enough to hold the watch while you turn the back. If you still have problems please let me know and we will find another way of doing this.Good luck!!

Hi. If you take a tiny screwdriver (one that you might use to screw a screw into an eyeglass and run it gently around the back you will feel an indentation where you can insert the tip and pop open the back. The battery is easy to access but trying to get the back back on is the problem! Good Luck.

How can i tell a fake from authentic?


mcdevito75 here, Best Bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area, they can authenticate your Gucci watch for you. If you can, remove the back cover of your Gucci and record any and all numbers and other info off the watches movement itself then check online at Gucci.com. If your not familiar with watches, specially Gucci an expensive watch let a small watch repair shop remove the back cover and give you all info needed to authenticate the watch.

How to change battery on a swatch skin watch


  1. Place the watch in case holder. Place the watch in the case holder, if you have one. If you do not, place it on a soft cloth.
  2. Check for room to work. Check to see if there is room to attach the adjustable case wrench and rotate it 360 degrees. If not remove watch band.
  3. Remove case back. Fit the adjustable case wrench into the slots on the case back. Tighten it down until it is snug. Be careful not to slip with this tool as it can scratch the case back of your watch. Work slowly. When it is unscrewed gently pry up the case back taking great care not to damage the internal gasket. If the gasket gets damaged it will need to be replaced with the battery to retain water resistance.
  4. Remove battery. The battery will be held in place by some type of retention device. It will need to be removed. Some clips will be removed by using tweezers. Some clips may be moved using a screw driver, and some simply bend out of the way slightly. Remember how it was removed as it must be put back in place exactly for the circuit to be completed after battery change. If the clip is removed, place it and any screws in a paper cup to prevent loss. Remember how the battery was seated, plus (positive) side up or down etc. it needs to be replaced correctly to work.
  5. Test battery. Using the battery tester check the battery. If it is dead move to next step, if it is not take the watch to a jewelers for inspection.
  6. Clean and inspect battery box. Inspect the battery box the battery came out of. If there is corrosion take it to jewelers for inspection. If there is light dust it may be cleaned with a clean soft cloth.
  7. Buy battery. Use the numbers on the battery and buy a new one. Occasionally the number will be obsolete and you will be referenced to a replacement battery in the battery charts. This is the time to also replace the gasket if you need to. Check with a watch maker or jeweler, or the watch company to buy a replacement. We cannot stress enough how important this gasket is to a water resistant watch, without its integrity your fine watch may no longer be resistant.
  8. Replace battery. Using the plastic tweezers if you have them, or fingers wearing cotton gloves, replace the battery. Never use bare fingers as finger oils may corrode or short out the new battery. Carefully replace the retention device as it was remove.
  9. Replace case back. Make sure that the gasket is in place, and not pinched or caught in the case back when you set it in place. Screw down the case back using your fingers until it is tight and needs the case wrench. Attach case wrench as before and tighten down the case back.
  10. Reset and clean watch. Using the appropriate method reset the watch. Use the polishing cloth to clean off any dirt and finger prints.
OR...take to your local jeweler/watchmaker who has the appropiate tools and let them do it for you!!!! :)

How to replace a battery on a ebel watch?


The most water resistant watches will have a screwed down case back and crown for maximum water resistance, both of which are backed by internal gaskets. These are the types this articlde will concentrate on. To change the battery in a water resistant watch you will need:
  • Adjustable case tool
  • Case holder ' + google_ads[0].line1 + '
    ' + google_ads[0].line2 + ' ' + google_ads[0].line3 + '

    ' + google_ads[0].visible_url + '' + ' Ads by Google'; } else if (google_ads.length > 1) { s += 'Ads by Google
    '; for(i = 0; i ' + google_ads[i].line1 + '
    ' + google_ads[i].line2 + ' ' + google_ads[i].line3 + '
    ' + google_ads[i].visible_url + '
    '; } s += ''; } document.write(s); return; } google_ad_client = 'pub-8735055091446807'; google_ad_channel = '5953492595'; google_ad_output = 'js'; google_max_num_ads = '2'; google_ad_type = 'text_html'; //google_image_size = '468x55'; google_feedback = 'off'; // --> google_protectAndRun("render_ads.js::google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);
  • Small screw driver
  • Polishing cloth
  • Cotton gloves
  • Small tweezers
  • Plastic tweezers
  • Soft clean cloths
  • Battery tester

How do I replace a battery on a kenneth cole watch and square fossil watch


Open watch case back, then release the metal contact covering the battery. Memorize battery's polarity (+ up and - down), then take the battery out. Memorize the combination of letters and numbers on battery (should be something like: CR 3216 or similar). Make does not matter - Seiko is as good as Maxell, Panasonic2_bing.gif and other reputable makes. Buy new battery with identical combination of letters and numbers and put in your watch. Replace back contact, gasket and case back. Set your watch and enjoy. Rate me, please.

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.

What battery do I need for Polar F6?


Always look at the numbers on the old battery first and replace with the same. If you don't have the old battery then I would check with a local business that sells that watch. Sometimes you might find the battery number engraved on the case back. Hope this helps you,.good luck.

Repair location in my area


Try AWCI.com for someone in your area. I recommend a good watchmaker even for a cell replacement, they will usually clean the case and band, do a consumption check, a min run voltage test and a water resistance test and new seals to keep watch fresh.
