Finding replacement battery for watch (DIY).
If anyone opted out to replace battery 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 batteries, 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.

Silicon scientific atomic projection clock did no ...
I have one of these, and look for the manual on the 'Net every time DST changes, and eventually figure it out. Here's how: (1) Hold down the ALM/SET button until you get past the alarm setting and you see 24H or 12H. (2) Step through the settings by pushing the ALM/SET button, changing each as desired by pressing the +/CYCLE button. Eventually you'll wind up with the time zone indication flashing (it's really tiny, and appears just below the time indication). Press the +/CYCLE until you get to the desired time zone. (3) After the screen quits flashing, press the -/DST button to get the desired setting. I hope this helps, and that I can find this post again next time change!

How do I change battery in a Ellen Tracy
Watch # ET5252GD
Yours is most likely a 'Clip On' type which you lever off.
Most watches use one of three methods to access the battery. 'Clip on' back cover, 'Twist Off' back plate and a 'Screw Down' back cover.
'Clip On' back covers are usually smooth ands round with no notches or holes. They are levered off using a blade style lever. Some watches even have small grooves or a small lip sticking out to lever against. Most common watches tend to use this style.
'Twist Off' covers usually have evenly spaced notches or round dimples around the edge of the cover to mount a special tool to unscrew the entire cover plate like a bolt head. Some higher priced watches use this system.
'Screw Down' cover are the easiest to spot. They are usually more square in shape and held down by four tiny screws, one in each corner. They appear most often on 'Sport' watches.
