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!

Not all watches are fitted with a notch or a 'sweet spot'. Some just need a thin, hard edged tool to lever the back cover off.
**DON'T use a sharp knife blade as this scratches the watch and slices your fingers.**
I use an old, blunt, broken butter knife I've modified to give me a curved edge to work with.

It probably works the same as a Seiko Chronograph. The crown has three stops out for changing Date, Day and Time. If you pull it out to the various stops and press the timing buttons, the hand will progress one division per press. This feature is there because when you change battery, the dials are set at that position as the median.
