I have changed the battery on my and my wifes ebel classic wave watch,,
step 1 ...remove the crown by pulling away from the watch, use your thumb and index fingernail and pull , it will come out
step 2 ...remove all 5 gold bezel screws
step 3... be careful,, the bezel/crystal will pry off easy
step 4... be careful and remove the entire face/hands/watch guts all in one easy step,, or just turn the watch over and it will fall out
step 5.. small screwdriver and remove/replace battery
step 6... reinstall watch guts/bezel and gold screws
step 7... push crown back into watch
step 8... take wife and kids to dinner ,,you just saved three hunderd bucks
if have done it many times ,, you can do it !!!!

    wrong you do not remove any peices you pull out stem to the set position. the guts will lift up opp of stem side as you lift up you rowtate counter clockwise and the works will flip over and back into the case upside down to protect the face exspossing the batt. the stem is made to rowtate / bend slitly after batt is replaced. lift same side but rowtate clockwise . but do not touch face of watch hands are very delicate. but one thing to remember once you remove the bezel your warrenty is void. the ebel co. dose not want you to get away cheap. also you will never find a batt with the same numbers ( ebel made sure of that ) but a jeweler will be able to match it up. save the orig batt if somthing gos wrong with the watch in the future you mite be able to replace the orig batt and they will never know. good luck

    hello read my post you do not have to remove all that stuff to change the batt , but be awear that opening an ebel will void your warrenty. but save you 240.00 to send it to ebel. thats your choice. read my post i have an ebel and so dose my wife. my wifes is ober 10 years old i have changed the batt 3 times. i have worked for a pawn shop in past years and know alot about watches and own meny. hope this is helpful




Don1421's answer is not going to work because it's not possible to remove the back of an Ebel Classic Wave. It may need to be sent to LVMH for repair.

I have problem to pull out the crown, it can be pulled out 1 step to adjust the date and another step to adjust the time. I can not pull it out completely. It seems to be a screw if I look at it but is that realy the case?

How to remove stem to get to battery in ebel ladies watch?

On my men's classic wave, the stem is removed simply by pulling it out. It feels like it's requiring a lot of force, but it is designed to have resistance so that it's not pulled out accidentally when setting the time.
So to change the battery, you remove the 5 faceplate screws, remove the crystal and gasket, pull out the stem and then the whole face/movement assembly will pull forward.
NOT positive yours is the same, but that's how my men's Classic Wave is. Good luck!

mcdevito75 here, Chances are the qiuckest way is to visit a local jewlery shop in your area, they may have quicker accesss to Ebel so you can get Ebel replacement links, this way your Ebel watch remains 100% Ebel.

I'm loking for a replacement black leather band

If you want to pay the premium for an Ebel strap then any Ebel dealer or an online source can provide that.
For a much more reasonable price, I would try a store that sells AND installs watch straps. Usually, only independant jewelers both sell and install these.

Average cost for an "overhaul"

I've paid $250 - $450 for my Rolex about every ten years.  The Ebel is another fine watch, and should cost about the same.  They come back looking like new.

Need double link for mini Ebel Classic Wave Watch

Unfortunately you will not be able to buy links anywhere else exept Ebel. You can try to find them on eBay, but it may take years and even then there is no any guarantee thet you will find the right links.
The best way is to contact Ebel and ask them if they can supply any links needed. Visit this link:

Choose the way you want to contact them or the nearest srevice center.

Ladies Classic Wave Diamond dial

Yes, you can. Contact your nearest Ebel retailer and they will advice you.
Bear in mind- this is a costly upgrade.
