Battery for Relic watch ZR77100
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!

Need directions to change links on relic zr77271 watch
Hello Charles Cooper and welcome to fixya.
I have NEVER even seen a RELIC watch
( and am a amateur (unpaid horologist)) but
I love all timepieces...
A quick search of the internet reveals...
A band tool...
pin pusher (search on eBay) is REQUIRED
to push the pins out of both sides of the link
you will want to remove. The FIRST/BEST tool
you will want to purchase will be at least
a 10x power jeweler's loupe (magnifier).
answer below could be EXACTLY what
you are looking for...
You will be pushing from the SMALL end.
this does not require a lot of FORCE but
it is WELL BEYOND any pressure any
bare handed pressing can accomplish...!!
((( pin tool MIGHT be your best choice ))).
Not really (novice) AMATEUR work...!!
Nor is it ROCKET SCIENCE...
but you would be well advised to get QUALITY
mentoring... Which would result in your purchasing
some QUALITY tools (plentiful/reasonable on eBay).
Work on a fine weave cloth & NEVER over a carpet.
Teeny screws can be found by shining a flash-light
across the floor (or vacuuming with a fine mesh cloth
inside your vacuum nozzle).
The true/best way to find your required tools
is to state your case and look on the WEB...
(Pictures really help).
Internet WISDOM is usually 80% BS & 90% just
plain WRONG (or vise versa (I can never recall)).

How to remove back cover on a relic watch to replace the battery
There is two methods of removing the back of this style of watch. Look closely at the back of the watch. If it is completely smooth there will be a notch or groove where you can gently, but firmly, lever the back cover off. Use a small screwdriver or a thin flat edged tool, NOT a knife! Refitting is a firm, constant pressure over the whole of the back cover.
If there are regular notches, grooves or holes or around the edge of the cover it is a 'screw off' cover. You may need a specialist tool to remove these back plates.
Depending on how much the watch is worth and the cost of the battery it is probably just as easy to get a watch repair shop to do it for you.
