SOURCE: how to remove the back

First you need to determine if the watch is a snap back type or a screw back. If the watch back has a series of equally spaced slots (usually about 6) around it's perimeter, then it is a screw back and you will need a special tool in most cases. You can sometimes remove a screw back using a pair of snipe nose pliers in two of the slots, but unless the watch can be mounted safely in a small vice then this is quite difficult. The back from snap back watches can be removed with a blunt pen knife. If you look carefully around the edge of the watch casing you should see a small indent in the cover. This is where you start with the blunt pen knife, working your way around the edge twisting the knife gently as you go. Eventually the back will snap out of the watch casing

What battery does the fossil ch2599 watch take


You are going to have to remove the battery to find out which one you need. For instructions on how to do this see: http://www.mademan.com/mm/fossil-watch-battery-replacement-guide.html. You can buy the battery at: http://shop.batterymart.com/search#w=fossil%20ch2599%20watch%20battery. Replacing a Fossil battery is delicate and tricky. Fossil recommends that you send it to a shop that specializes in Fossil watch battery replacements.

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.

How to change my battery on my fossil watch?


when you look at the back are there three small rectangular indents evenly spaced on the edge on the back? If so you'll need a special tool for opening waterproof watches. the tool adjusts to fit the three indents then press down as you turn counterclockwise. you can find the tool on amazon.com or your local jewelry store. make sure the gasket is in place and not damaged before screwing the back on.

here is a link to the tool
http://www.amazon.com/Pavilion-Professional-Waterproof-Adjustments-Caseback/dp/B000K3SK0Y

the type f battery will be written on the battery and you can usually find them at a drug store, hardware store or jewelry store that sells watches.

I have a fossil blue watch that isnt working. i have tried to change the battery and that does not seem to help.


take it to a jewlrey store, like sergios. They know how to fix all watches. I took my fossil blue to 4 watch stores including the fossil store in the mall and none of the stores could fix it. I took it to sergios they changed 2 batterys in like 5 minutes with no charge.
