Question about Ocean Watches
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!
Changing Watch Batteries
Posted on Jun 12, 2019
I received an email from Timex customer tech support to take it to a jewler which pretty much means buy a new one. Not worth the cost of the battery and repair. I have the tools so I might as well try it myself. Either way, I will either fix it or buy another watch.

The battery has its identification number on it, so if you remove the back of the watch you should be able to read the type without stopping the watch.
Or you could take it to a watch shop, who will have a stock of batteries. Removing and replacing the back of a watch sometimes takes some practice and I advise you to give the job to an expert, especially if it is a water resistant type.

SOURCE: i need new pins for
mcdevito75 here, besides the pins, you"ll need a special tool called a Pin Removal tool. By the time you order and recieve, it"s better to look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the removal / Install of these pins and links.

I couldn't find anything on the net about cleaning it, but I would call a Jewelry store and ask them. They make mild cleaning solutions for jewelry, and that might work good, but it's always good to check, since these watches have a special finish. I checked out Invicta's watch manual, but it had no information on cleaning:
You might contact Invicta in case noone has a good idea. Probably most mild mild cleaning solutions would work, but it doesn't hurt to check.
