Exact replacement battery you can find written on the original battery.
Do not mind the manufacturer or the letters, because they can vary. Just make sure you are buying the well known manufacturer battery, e.g. SONY, MAXELL, CEIKO, CITIZEN, RENATA, TOSHIBA, YAMAHA, etc.
The most important thing is to EXACT match of the numbers as they are giving the exact code of the battery.
EXAMPLE: Lets say: your battery have some letters and the number 1616. That means: your battery is 1.6 cm in diameter and 1.6 mm in height (thickness), or: 1.6cmX1.6mm, or simplified 1616.
As I said- do not mind the letters, as different manufcturers are using different letter codes (for quick in-house reference) and these letters have no use for you.
So, if you are ready to follow - open your watch caseback and take the battery out. Write down ALL the letters and numbers of that battery.
If you expierance any difficulties to open the watch - let me know.

Do not forget to rate, please.

All battery driven watches are sensitive, not just the Chase-Durer.
Even the cheap ones, as the movement can be damaged or destroyed by the static electricity (touch of the bare finger).
Extra care is not needed to replace your watch battery, just you have to follow some simple, but very basic rules.
If you are ready to do it yourself- let me know and I'll guide you throgh all the steps (by asking me questions on this site).
Ifyou are not, then I'll let you know the best place to do that at nearest shop possible.

Changing Watch Batteries
Lots of posters ask "what is the battery in my (name of watch)" with a view to changing it yourself. This is a bad idea for many reasons. You don't have the tools or knowledge to remove a rotary screw on back, or the gasket sealant for a waterproof watch. Some fashion watches have 4 traditional screw and need professional grade jeweler screwdrivers. Also, there are about 20 batteries commonly used in watches, in various sizes and internal technology, Lithium Ion, Silver Oxide and Manganese Alkaline. If you buy them, you generally have to buy 10!

Don't sweat the details. Just take the watch to your local jeweler. They have all the batteries at hand and the tools to remove the back. It is done whilst you wait for $8 to $15!

Did you ever find an answer to your Chase Durer question. I have two watches of there's that are doing the same thing. If I leave the stem out they work fine, but that leaves them susceptible to water damage. [email protected] thanks

Very difficult to explain this without a model name or number of the watch. Is it a Conquest, a Pilot, a Starburst, a Squadron Commander, a Xanadu?

Please specify the model of the watch and which sub-dials you are having difficulty with. Do you have the instructions and are unable to understand them? Our answer can only be as good as your question. The more details you provide, the more comprehensive the answer will be.
