La Crosse Watches - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

This is the model with the exposed button on the right side. The back does not come off, but the front does! If you use a loop you may be able to see a notch between 7 and 9 O'clock. Be very careful because the gasket keeping the watch water resistant is right there. You do not want to harm it. I put the watch in a holder and place a very thin jewelers screw drive on the side. With a jewels hammer I tap lightly until the front comes off. You must then carefully remove the movement from the case and not touch the hands. In order to close the watch after battery replacement, a watch press is a must. Without the press, you won't get the watch closed. The manufacturer suggests taking the watch to a qualified professional. You can send it to the manufacturer as well and they will change the battery for you. The Manufacturer is La Crosse Technology in La Crosse Wisconsin.

you can get the crystal off, but not back on. There is a special tool that is used to compress the crystal to make it fit in the bezel. Besides, if a piece chipped off, it is no longer waterproof. Take it to a jeweler and he can put a new crystal on in no time. Crystals are not expensive.

If your numbers dim when you push any button, it's probably a battery. If your numbers are off or very faint same problem, battery. Those watches take a 1.50 V cell because of the light, and multi functions. Any decent jewelry store should be able to have you in and out in 10 minutes or sooner.

Good luck, gabe.

when you have an expensive watch, take it to a jeweler or, to a pawn shop. Many pawn shops change batteries, and are cheaper than jewelers. Always ask for price first.
