The cover on the rear OF ROUND FOSSIL WATCHES is usually threaded. Threaded covers have a series of square notches cut into the outside perimeter of the round back case. Use some tool (small needle nose?, I used a set of measuring calipers) to insert in two of the opposite notches on the cover. Spin… it off counter clockwise VERY FIRMLY. Then carefully pull up the plastic retainer. Push the metal tab (over the one side of the battery) off of the battery and the battery will pop up. Reverse to reinstall. (Some batteries are not held down my a movable tab, but a tab that cannot be moved. At some top part of the battery along the outer perimeter will be a very small metal tab of part the watch over top of the battery. Do NOT pry the battery up there or you will bend the tab. Pry the battery up from the opposite end using a small screwdriver, and insert the new battery by sliding one side under this tab and pushing the battery down into place.) For SQUARE or other unusual back covers, they can be pried off. Look carefully at the outside edges of the back cover for a place they put to insert a flat jeweler's screwdriver and pry up firmly. Wear safety glasses and gloves to protect your hands. Pliers and screwdrivers can easily slip off and into your hand or eye. All I know is that you have to have a special tool, as the fossil watches are pressure sealed to keep out particles and moisture. That's why it costs so much in the stores to get a simple battery replaced. To remove the back cover I put a long nose plier across an opposite pair of notches on the back cover and unscrewed it gently without letting the plier pop out of the grooves. Looking at the exposed watch, there is a nylon like cover that partly covers the battery. There are open slots on the sides of this cover and it can be removed easily with a very small screwdriver by putting it in a slot and prying it out. Now, looking at the battery, (Different Fossil watches take different sized batteries. Remove your battery before buying a new one, or get the model number of the watch off the back and contact Fossil. Also, since you need to buy a battery anyway, Wal Mart or other jewelers can replace the battery for you since you're already there. It is held in place by a short partial ring on one side and by a long flat spring like device on the other side. The spring is pushed into a pin which keeps it from moving away from the battery. To release the spring, put the screwdriver in the center of the spring, about half way to the battery and lift up. The spring will come out of the locking pin and the battery will be free to remove. After replacing the battery, hold the center of the spring up in the center and push the far end down under the locking pin, and then release the center. (Note, most Fossil watches have battery holders where you simply pry the battery up without any pins or springs. At some top part of the battery along the outer perimeter will be a very small metal tab of the watch over top of the battery. Do NOT pry the battery up there or you will bend the tab. Pry the battery up from the opposite end using a small screwdriver.) Another suggestion: I tried the needle nose pliers method w/ no success. (Some needle nosed pliers are too fat at the tip, and require grinding down. Or, buy or use a tool from Wal Mart as you need to buy a new battery anyway!) I ended up scratching the plate a little bit. Then i took a flat head screwdriver and pushed on one of the notches to make it turn counterclockwise. This had a much better grip. Don't try the little watch/jeweler screw driver, they are too small to hold on well. Inside is a battery (SR927W). (Different Fossil watches take different sized batteries.) D.N.L. I just used regular 'walmart' pliers to open my broken (glass broke somehow...) watch to end my burning curiosity. need to grip it in a vice grip but i used leverage by wedging it in the back end of a hammer i found lying around instead. just needed to push down hard to increase friction (and therefore grip strength) and everything worked fine until it slipped and scratches the bajesus out of it. good thing i didn't care anyhow... The best choice for removing a threaded case back is to use a "case back removal tool", which consists of two or three adjustable "pins" attached to a handle (most WalMarts sell a two-pin tool in their jewelry department, and you can purchase a better three-pin tool from several vendors on eBay). To use it, start by placing the watch face-down on a padded surface (to avoid scratching the crystal). Adjust the pins so that they very snugly fit into the notches cut into the case back; if you don't, the pins can jump out when you try to use it and scratch the watch. Place the tool over the case back and engage the pins into the slots; then, holding the watch steady with one hand and the tool in the other, give the tool a counterclockwise turn to loosen the back (it may take a lot of force to do this, especially if this is the first time the battery is being replaced). Once the case back is loosened (usually about 1/4 to 1/2 turn), remove the tool and finish unscrewing the back by hand to avoid scratching the watch. Be careful as you remove it as some watches use a very thin O-ring on the back to make a watertight seal. After replacing the battery and ensuring the watch is running properly again, carefully inspect the surface of the case and the threading on the case back and remove any dust or grimy deposits with a soft cloth. Then, place the case back onto the case, being careful to align the O-ring or other seals, as well as the case back threads (tip: to ensure the threads are lined up, place the back on the watch and turn it counterclockwise about 1/2 turn or until you feel the ends of the threads "fall" into place). Screw the case back down as far as possible by hand, then use the removal tool to tighten it the rest of the way. I have a fossil watch with a square back and I just changed the battery. I recently purchased a battery changing kit from eBay for about $15 bucks and it paid for itself the same day. My watch back is not threaded, but it is snapped in place. It has four notches protruding from the case that you have to pry off that stick into the case of the watch. The tool kit I purchased comes with a tool that has a rounded knife end with a thick body to grip. I placed this tool into the top of the watch back, right beneath the bands, ensuring that I was in the groove. I tried my best to pry it off but I couldn't. So I placed the tool in that spot, and hammered it, and the back came off. I was able to change the battery and snap the back into place. I'm now wearing that watch as I type. (MORE)
I have a gold seiko. It is a great watch, it keeps time well and looks very good. It was about $150 dollars. It really is a great watch for every occasion.
i got a watch for Christmas and it lasted about a year and a half with a cheap watch. Also a tip if you get a cheep watch and the battery dies just get a new watch cause replacing the battery can cost more that the watch did. :)
Try turning the watch over and carefully reading the back of the case. Many watch brands actually list the battery number on the back of the case. For instance, the numbers 377 or 2010 are standard watch battery designations. Since the size and shape of the dial does not determine the battery used, …for best results take the watch to a local jeweler to have the battery replaced. (MORE)
It is simplest to have your local jeweler change it because one never knows the size battery to put in. There are several size batteries and they are all small. Also there are retaining arms and/or springs to consider, waterproof rings to recover, ect.. Now, having said that, this is how you do it.… Using a very thin blade, gently prise the back cover off the watch. Inside you will find a tiny round object. It is the battery, there is no other round thing inside that you can access without damaging the watch. Carefully remove the battery, using a toothpick or your fingernail. Most times it will pop up at the slightest pressure. Examine the battery for the size number. Common sizes are 379, 2020, 376, or 619. Buy exactly the same size as a "close" will not fit the watch. Remove the card, insert the battery and replace the watch backing, being careful to align the marks again properly. Make sure you hear a "snap" or "click" indicating that the case is closed. (MORE)
Not all Fossil watches carry the same battery, so you'll need to verify the make of your watch and see what battery type is compatible. Replacing batteries yourself can be tricky and could harm the watch internally. Your best bet is to send the watch into Fossil for a replacement. It will cost you $…18.50, which includes return shipping and handling fee. (MORE)
Use tool to open the cover.You will see the battery. Make new instead the old. Or let professional repair men do it.
If it's the guess watch with the 6-notches on the back, try using a scissor where the tips fit into two of the notches opposite each other. Be careful and twist the lid counter-clockwise. I did it with my guess waterpro watch and it's a great method where you don't have to go to a repair place to re…place the battery. Save your money. (MORE)
The first battery powered watch was invented in 1957. It was the Hamilton Electric 500, and is on display at the Smithsonian.
Finally figured this one out on mine with a little help from a website called the watch guy. I was used to the backs that you snap off with a tiny screwdriver. instead, this watch had 6 notches in the back - and you need a special wrench that locks into three of those notches and then you turn count…er clockwise to unscrew. I didn't have the wrench (or the time to hunt one down) so I used clamps to lock the watch down on a pad on the counter top - and then one of those little screw drivers in a notch at an angle and tapped it with the hammer until I could see the back start to turn/unscrew. Did that a few more times and then was able to turn it by hand and remove it. Same thing in reverse to put it back together. Count how many turns that you took to remove it to be sure you put it back on tightly! . To change the battery in a Bulova women watch is really easy! The only problem you have is that the cover doesn't want to get back! I hate it! (MORE)
first, remove the 4 screws on the back of the watch (but you knew that part) . take off the cover. . You will probably need to take the watch out of the casing which is a little tricky but it can be done. . look for 6 black screws. . 3 of them are screwed into plastic and 3 into small metal bra…ckets. . remove the 3 on the metal bracket. It will remove the battery cover and voila, there is your battery. (MORE)
The battery in a wrist watch is replaced by removing the retainingscrews and prying the bottom off. The battery is then slid out ofplace and a new battery put in.
charles-finch tissot was the person who had invented the tissot watch but it is now manufactured in Le Locle in the NeuchÃ¢tel area of the Jura Mountains
My jeweler took my Arnette digital world time watch apart and said the battery could not be replaced...it was a "permanent" battery. Huh? Find another "jeweler". Yours probably broke something or is an idiot. Just do this: Take the band off by inserting a thin awl or other slim pointed object in… the small openings on the underside of the watchband where the band attaches to the square face. Catch the lip of the pin that holds the band to the face and gently push it sideways. This will compress it and the band should pop off. Repeat for the opposite side and remove the band completely. With the watch-face, face down, notice a small dimple on the top center lip. Using the awl again of a small jewelers screw driver, wedge it in that dimple and pop the back off gently. The battery is now exposed. Gently pry off the metal band holding the battery in place and pop off one side. Do not try to unscrew the tiny screw on one end of that battery secure band. Remove the battery and insert a new Lithium AR 2030 battery ($2.79 for a five pack on Amazon with free shipping or any Walgreens or similar store). Snap the thin strip back over the battery to secure it. Replace the back cover and carefully snap it back on. Be careful the threadlike seal is not sticking out but is in place before snapping the back on. Reattach the band in reverse of how it was removed. You're good to go. Just be careful and gentle.

its the 364 which is the americano (621sw) you can pick it up at Target for like $4
Two types of batteries go into the watch. There are two (stacked) CR2016 that power the light, and then there is one 371 battery watch that powers the watch movement.
If you are refering to the Swiss Army #24498 Digital/Anolog model the band model number is # 09860. They go on ebay for 39.99 with free shipping. Hope this helps
For my Columbia CL-3005, I used a jeweler's screwdriver, not to pry the back off, but to hit one of the small notches, and rotate the whole back. Apparently it's threaded with an o-ring and everything. Took some muscle but I got it off, went to London Drugs for a new battery (SR927W), and it's work…ing again! Just be careful when you're reattaching the back not to cross-thread it. (MORE)
The battery would likely not fit in the holder. Although it would provide the correct voltage, it would not last as long as the proper battery would.
It is the depth that the watch can withstand if submerged in water (assuming you mean the subscript "200 meters" on a watch face). It can only be safe from leaking if you are submerged in less than 200 meters of water.
Probably at a chemist, but take the item with you so you know what size it is!
The trickiest part will be opening the watch case first and closingit last, the rest is quite obvious. Some watches just pop open, others have tiny screws, others theback must be unscrewed, etc. Many of these watches only require ajeweler's screwdriver, but the ones on which the back must beunscrew…ed a special vise attachment and a jeweler's spanner setmust be purchased to hold the watch still and turn the back (thesecost from $20 to $100). Another tricky item is a tiny o-ring gasket to keep water out. This should be replaced with a brand new one each time thewatch is opened (although I've frequently put the same one backin). If you are not a jeweler you may have a hard time finding thecorrect one for your watch. Also if the watch was factory sealedwater resistant to a certain depth, opening it to replace thebattery breaks this seal and most local jewelers do not have theequipment to reseal and verify it. Other than these things, just note the orientation of the batteryin the holder in the watch, remove it and install the new batteryin the same orientation. (MORE)
A lithium, CR 2016 is mainly used, but there are other sizes. It's best to remove the cover first, to remove and write down the battery size, before buying a new one. Remember many water resistant watches often need theoretical rings replaced, with the battery!
The back pops off on some watches. You can go to a watch store and they can put a new battery in it for you. Some others don't need a battery though. On these types when you move your wrist, the time is updated.
Remove the four screws that hold the back on.remove the cover,inside there should be a gold cover through which you can see the battery.At one end there is what looks like a hinge this is in fact the release used a tiny flat screw driver in the center slot to release it.Then the battery can be remov…ed and a new one can be put in.Then click the release back in place to hold the battery in and then screw the back on job done.

Since there is claimed dangers in re-charging take your own risk to save a couple of dollars. Watch batteries are typically 1.5 v. Take an alkaline 1.5 v AA battery and use a copper wire. Bent it in such a way as to hold the watch battery and the AA battery pinched together. The copper wire shoul…d be about three inches in length and have two 90 degree bends. The bends if placed properly will make the positive side of the battery connection. This system cannot overcharge your watch battery. Leave the connection for the day. (MORE)
It ranges from CR2302 to many other types. most are CR2302, however you should research because many different watch companies make models which are different. (For instance, I have two Seiko watches, one is CR2302 and one is not)
The first thing to do is to open the cover of the battery compartment. Remove the old battery. Replace this with a new battery. Replace the cover and check that the watch is still working. If the watch is still within its warranty period, then DKNY will replace the battery for you, however, it will …need to be mailed to the service center. (MORE)
I belive that a local pharmacy or possibly a dollar store would do just fine. Also try facilities that specialize in electronics, radioshack for example. They will carry lots of good mechanic goods, like batteries of course.
Use the internet or the phone book to locate local watch shops. This way you can ask a professional which battery is right for your watch. You may also compare prices.
One great website to buy watch batteries from is BatteriesPlus. They are customer certified by bizrate, VeriSign Secured, and McAfee Secure. They have 1000s of Batteries for 1000s of items.
yes watch batteries are different from regular batteries because watch batteries are much smaller and hold less electrical charge. they would not work in anything else other than a watch.
You can purchase a new watch battery at any jewellers or most places that sell watches. Most places that sell watch batteries will replace the battery for you, and they usually come with a guarantee depending on the watch and the battery.
To replace a watch battery, first you turn the watch over and remove the back of the watch, locate the battery which is round and usually shiny. Next you look at the number on the back of the battery and go to a drug store or any store that sells batteries, purchase one and put new one in where old …one was, close case and check to see if hands are moving on face of watch. (MORE)
You can recycle your watch battery by visiting your local joint battery recycling center. California has different regulations than other states and will request that for proper recycling the battery must have the "three chasing arrows" symbol.
IIII is perfectly acceptable notation of the number 4. It's what the Romans themselves would have generally used. However, it's usage on watches is for aesthetic appeal. It gives a sense of balance with the VIII on the other side. IX is the real oddity as the Romans would have generally used VIIII. …However, as with IIII, IX balances with the II on the other side. The numerals also have a radial balance, such that 1, 2, 3 and 4 are composed entirely of Is, 5, 6, 7 and 8 entirely of I and V, and 9, 10, 11 and 12 entirely of I and X. (MORE)
It depends on what kind of watch it is. If you want to know what one looks like, go on google images and search "button cell".
You have to go to a jewelers and get it done, i to have fossil watches....:)
Tissot watches are of above average quality but are surprisingly affordable for many consumers. Watches of this variety range from $250 to 600 on average. The low end watches can be found for just under $200 and the most expensive can be over $1000.
Some watches do not require batteries. These watches are called Kinetic watched and are actually powered by the motion of the wearerÃ¤Ã³Â»s arm. Electrical energy is produced by the weight of this motion. This energy then sends impulses to the gears that move the watchÃ¤Ã³Â»s hands.
in most cases you have to go to a watch repair and let them open it. The internal parts are tiny, and the battery isnt usually an off the shelf one
This watch is of black colour. It also has a sort of light brown cross beige parts to it. A stylish choice for any male. The strap is of good quality black leather.
The same places that would replace any other watch battery. Nothingthat special about a Skagen watch from that perspective.
There are many Tissot watches. The most expensive Tissot watch would be $1,550. The watch is named the Luxury Automatic COSC Men's Silver Watch With Diamonds.
Tissot Touch watches are available at leading jewellers on the high street including Ernest Jones and The Watch Hut. They are also available at department stores including Macy's, or online at Amazon and Overstock.
Other than the usual online websites, you can find Tissot watches for ladies in many Macy's stores. This is great, because Macy's has a wide variety of locations.
After looking at several different websites I have come to the conclusion that the Tissot PR50 is both a men's and a ladies watch style. Tissot PR50 is a general style code. There are several variations.
