How To Change Watch Batteries
Step 1. Clean the outside of the watch with a selvyt, at the same time checking to see how it should be opened.

Step 4. Note which way the old battery was inserted.
Step 5. If applicable, unfasten the battery clamp.
Step 6. Turn the watch gently onto its side and, with the help of plastic tweezers, ease the battery out.
Step 7. If the contacts are dirty, clean them with a buff-stick.
Step 8. Referring to the operating instructions, the movement, or a cross-reference guide, ascertain the type and model of the new battery that should be used.
Step 9. Take a new battery from your stock, remove it from its package, and check that it is in good condition.
