SOURCE: watch battery replacement

I have a Timex Expedition Indigo with a metal case. Not sure of the exact model number but on the back there an M6 below Expedition. Anyway, I had the same problem of snapping the back back on. I found a "battery" website that had some suggestions that should be typical of any snap back case watch. http://www.online-batteries.co.uk/whichbattery.shtml specifically they said that when you try to press the back on it must be flat (not one edge down as I had been trying) Put the watch face down on a non scratch surface and press with both thumbs evenly. If that doesn't work a press will be needed. If you have a vice a couple of blocks of wood to distribute the load on the front and back may work, otherwise take it to a jeweler with the proper equipment. The thumb routine didn't work for me. I have a vice but figured many wouldn't so I tried something else first. I put the watch face down on a piece of wood. I found a small 2" long scrap of wood (3/4" x 1.5" approx) that spanned the back. I centered the back (aligned properly) placed the block of wood squarely and centered across the back and tapped the end of the block with a hammer. First try didn't work, second one did. I used a rubber mallet as the hammer but a regular hammer or other heavy object would work. The trick, I think, is to get everything lined up and square so the blow is centered and even. Also, I'd suggest cleaning the back and the groove in the case and be sure the rubber gasket is properly positioned. This will give you the best chance of retaining the waterproofing. And remember to check that the watch is running before you do this. Some need to be reset (usually with a very small screwdriver or pin) after replacing the battery. There should be a small hole with some printing next to it. You may need a magnifying glass to see/read it. Good Luck, Richard

izzi, I assume you have a snap back back that won't snap back in place. I had the same problem with a Timex EXpedition. The solution should be similar. See my post" http://www.fixya.com/support/t190459-watch_battery_replacement and also the site I reference there. http://www.online-batteries.co.uk/whichbattery.shtml Good luck, Richard

My skagen wrist watch has stopped .why?It has lifetime warranty


Your watch has lifetime warranty - not the battery. Battery should be replaced as soon as it goes flat. Do not leave flat battery in watch - it may leak and destroy the movement. Pop in your nearest watch repair shop and ask to replace battery. Rate me please.

My skagen watch have just stopped working. Is it the battery? If so where can I bring my watch for a battery replacement?


if you had it for awhile then it probably is the watch battery. It should be fairly inexpensive any where from 7-12 dollars to replace the battery. This can be done in most jewelery repair stores or jewelry stores. You can also go to places such as fast fix that are located in strip malls and malls all around the US.

check to see if there is one near you. If not any jewelry store would be suffice.

Hi, My wife skagen watch crystal was broken when I took it to a battery replacement place. I have search on skagen to purchase only the crystal without having to send the watch to the US. Is there any...


I have had to replace more glasses in this watch than any other brand over the last two years - It is most definitely a design flaw. The truth is though that you will not need a genuine skagen part. Your local watch repair shop will be able to use a standard 1mm thick domed Mineral Glass manufactured by Sternkreuz for example. It should be fitted by a qualified watch repairer, but you should not need to send it to Skagen. Good luck

My battery wend dead. the store will not open the back of the watch to change it. how do i open the back to change the battery?


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
Most Skagen watches have a snap-in, snap-out back. You will need a case back opening tool ($3 to $14) or a slotted jeweler's screw driver or knife blade to pry it open. Do this over a counter or towel in case the battery pops out. Examine and make note of which side of the battery is up. Get the number off the battery, better yet take it with you to Wal-Mart, Radio Shack or anywere else they sell batteries. Buy a replacement, install it, and try to reinstall the back. Good luck!
Do not try placing your Skagen watch face down on a soft towel, on a hard surface, and then then try to mussle in the back, or tap it with a mall or hammer. You very likely will break the crystal.
Without a Case Closing Plier ($15 to $20) or a Case Closing Press ($15 to $50) you will not be able to get the back to snap back in. You could try a conventional vise and size some vinyl or plastic washer to to fit the bezel and protect the crystal/face of the watch, and some flat vinyl/plastic that covers the back of the watch. Align the front and back plastic pieces with the back, carefully insert it in your vice, and tighten until the back snaps in. This could be fatal if you mess up!
A simpler solution is to take your watch to a place that specializes in selling and servicing a variety of watches, hopefull Skagens, maybe a jewelry store, and have them replace the battery. They should have the closing tool and you can expect to pay $10 to $15 for the battery and installation.
If you like Skagens, you can go on-line and find the appropriate tools to do this. Or, pay the watch store. Many Skagens use up batteries at the rate of every 10 to 15 months. Also, you can look up Skagen on line and see if they will service your watch. They are located in Reno, Nevada
