    I have a sovereign gold watch and there is no way i can see to change the battery, other than by removal of the watch face. Anyone had any info on this yet?

I used a sharp penknife blade to remove the watch front by getting right on the base and pinching the glass off, (comes off quite easily) tilt the watch out of the case and see enough to prise battery out with a needle. The battery is a Maxwell SR920W or equivalent. Have ordered new batteries on ebay.

    Winding stem will pinch off to make things easier but it takes a little force to pinch off..

How to change battery on a ladies classic 18 k and steel watch with solid back

Welcome to Fixya,

Hi hope this steps will helped you in changing the battery but I just want you to remind that you have to be careful in changing the battery because it might affect the other part.


1- remove the crown by pulling away from the watch, use your thumb and index fingernail and pull , it will come out

2- remove all 5 gold bezel screws

3 - be careful,, the bezel/crystal will pry off easy

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

5 - small screwdriver and remove/replace battery

6 - reinstall watch guts/bezel and gold screws

7 - push crown back into watch

Thank you for using Fixya.

I have a geneve quartz 14k gold mans watch dont no how to take apart to put battery in.

mcdevito75 here, Battery usually lasts 1 year and longer, even if you did change the battery yourself now, you"d forget for a year or even longer next time battery needeed to be changed, I know I did. Add to this you can easily destroy your watch with in-correct handleing. BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for this battery change $10--$15.00 and peace of mind.

I need to change the batteries and i cant get thhe back off

mcdevito75 here, Croton, a high quality watch, Best Bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change, these quartz movements can easily be destroyed with mis-handleing and anyway a battery lasts at least 1 year.

How can you get into a sovereign ladies watch to change the battery, does the back come off or the glass ? the back doesn't seem removable. its diameter is 20 mm and its 9 carat gold. bracelet and watch

You have to pull stem out of watch movement completely and then remove watch glass. Sovereign watch cases are monoblock, so, the only way to get into it is to remove the glass. Rate me, plz.

I just replaced the battery on my polar watch and 'error' and the number 6 is on the screen. Nothing i do will unfreeze this or change it. Have already tried to take the battery out and put back in

You probably need to "short out" the battery before you can set it.
To do this you need to remove the caseback and apply a tweezers to the battery and the "AC".
The AC is usually labeled and it looks like a little gold cricle near the battery in the watch. (I realize there may be more than one gold colored small circle in there, and if it's not labeled it will take trial and error.)
With the tweezers, or paperclip would work, touch the AC and the battery at the same time and hold for a few seconds, then release and repeat once more. This should get your watch reset and ready for you to set.
