Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving in doing it yourself.

if you know the movement you can search on how to do this, There normally is a lever or a push pin hold that needs to be pressed down to remove the stem.

How do I open an alessi al 5019 watch to replace the battery?

A practical way to accomplish this is to take your Alessi watch to a jeweler for a demonstration of how to open it correctly. You then may be able to persuade the jeweler to replace the battery for a reasonable sum.

How do i change the battery in a Gucci 2400 L watch?

Hello Jeneane Blacine,

Beautiful watch...

A picture of the BACK-SIDE would allow me a better GUESS.

I am purely an amateur horologist (all personal opinions)...
Like... a 5x jewelers loupe works fine for battery changing.

I did look for your battery number.. but found no references.

The American Watch Institute (AWI) produces a book that lists every battery and cross references GLOBAL numbers from the VARIOUS manufactures...

Once I open a watch...
I always write down THAT WATCH and Battery NUMBER and keep it with that pamphlet
(about $5 in 1998 - 2000 edition).

I start with an soft bristle brush (tooth brush works fine) & carefully go all over the watch cleaning every crack, joint & crevice... followed by a soft clean cloth to polish the case. Once I am confident nothing will be introduced into the watch... I open the case (table top, good light. jewelers loupe, case cracker , jaxa (style) wrench or jewelers screw-drivers... really nice forceps above a clean floor... (a screw WILL GET AWAY ...a flash light across the surface of the floor... will cast a decent shadow... or (my mother advised me to use of a lady's stocking over the vacuum nozzle also worked (she was a very smart lady)).

Some watches have press in backs... some secure with screws... a lot of round body watches actually have screw in covers...

They are all different (certainly delicate).

After taking a couple of our watches to the PROFESSIONALS
only to see the gouge & scratch the cases... I figured I would scratch much less (& free)... As the decades have passed ... I can get in & out.. just fine.

Acceptable quality tools are available on-line... and a little patience
will make your cases last longer... As for their water "resistance"...
THAT'S A WHOLE other article... Suffice it to say... I do a better jo than the battery guy at the strip mall ...

Better tools produce better work... but it is the skilled touch of a caring hand that guarantees the best results... No mater who they are... everybody needs to start at the beginning.

Good luck...

How do you take the back of a wrist watch off so you can change the battery

The Proper way is with a "watch case wrench". They can be purchased for a few dollars on Amazon and E-bay. In most cases unless you are changing many watch batteries the best option is to call around to local jewelers and pawn shops and ask how much to replace a watch battery. In my town it ranges from $30 to as little as $5.99 battery included.

Time to replace the battery, but cannot manage to remove the back cover. Any special tricks? I'm familiar with using sharp knife blade to do this, but it's not working. Thanks!

You defenately need a watch case opener.

It can be more than difficult to open a watch case with a sharp knive/screwdriver without destroying it.

A case opener can be the only solution.

Otherwise you'll have to bring your watch to a professional to get the battery replaced.

Good luck

2003 deer pocket watch Al Agnew is it wind up or Battery

Often with battery powered watches the word "Quartz" will be written on the dial. In the abscent of that you can look at the mechanism inside (typically by removing the case back).

Alternately (this may not be an absolute confirmation) with the winder in neutral position i.e. pressed all the way in, turn the crown (winding button) and if it spins freely it's probably quartz. Because unless it's broken most mechanical watches click as the watch is
wound up (except some automatics which cant be crown wound).

Plus if it's working and left unworn for a few days yet continues to run it's probably quartz.
Please rate this solution.

After changing the battery nothing can be changed, no function possible and"open" remains written on the display, the type of the battery is clt 1616

The battery is CTL 1616 and I had the same occurance when I opened up my model Casio model 3043. I needed to use the battery to test my model 2767 and find out if a new battery would bring it back to life (yes, it still lives). After replacing the battey back into my 3043, I jumped the (ac) to (-) and at first the watch would indicate all was well but then it would revert back to "open". I tried over and over to try and get the "open" display to clear but I was not successful. I then thought to go ahead and replace the back on the case to see if the three contact springs would change the display and sure enough, "open" no longer was in the display. The watch works perfectly as before. As for the 2767, as soon as I jumped the (ac) to (-) the "open" display went away. There is only one spring contact to the back case on the 2767 model. Unfortunately I do have an extra spring that fell out when I opened it up and I have no clue as to where it goes. I have not found anyone who can help me on the location for the shorter spring. Any advice would be most helpful.
