The second hand should start automatically if the battery was replaced correctly.

Seiko Watches | Answered on Aug 17, 2019


I know it's been a while since you posted this question, but I just had to do this with mine after it was lost in a drawer for a few years, and I had no luck googling so I had to figure it out for myself.

First, you have to remove the band, but you only need to do this on one end, not both. I did this by twisting the watch body around while holding the cloth/leather portion of the band still, letting the elastic part twist around with the watch body. Then, just use a fingernail to pull on the ridges on one end of one of the pins that are holding the band on; both ends are spring-loaded, so it doesn't matter which. Twist the watch body back around, and you'll now be able to flip it over to expose the back.

Now, take a thin, strong blade (I used a butterknife) and pry off the back plate. There's a tab on the upper right edge of the back plate to make this much easier. Since it probably came off in the process, place the rubber sealant ring back around the edge of the backplate.

Once you have the back plate off, there's a thin metal piece covering the battery that's held on with one screw. Remove that with an eyeglass screwdriver or any other similarly-sized Phillips-head screwdriver. There's just a small tab holding the metal piece in place on the other side, so just flip the metal piece up a bit and pull it out. You can now take the battery (a CR2016 3-volt watch battery) right out.

But wait, what's this? Beneath that battery, separated by a small plastic insert, is another, smaller one, a 377/376 1.55-volt watch battery. The 377/376 powers the analog movement, while the CR2016 powers all the digital stuff and the backlight.

Replace both batteries, making sure to place the plastic insert back on top of the 377/376 before putting the CR2016 back in, and follow the steps in reverse to put the watch back together. You may have some difficulty getting the back plate back on, but I just pressed one side in and held it while I tapped the other side down with my fist.

The above link includes an international contact. That direct contact should provide at minimum whether they can supply a band and/or what would be necessary.

However, you may be able to use a Nato band on the watch as an alternative. www.clockworksynergy.com

Lastly, you might take it to a watch repair shop, have them exactly measure the band (the broken one) and see what they might supply.

I would go to the manufacturer's website and check for an instruction manual.

Other than contacting Versa directly and asking them where the nearest stockist of a replacement bracelet is, to your location, then the only other option is to use a specialist sourcer, such as myself.
I have a contact in Guangzhou, China who can get pretty much anything.
If you would like me to source one for you, then please EMAIL ME watchsauce@gmail.com and I’ll get some prices & images together for you

If it is a new movement you require, email
Me watchsauce@gmail.com and I will discuss options with you.
Would you need it fitting.
If so, prices would start from as little as £18 for a Minota Quartz right up to £175 for a brand new ETA automatic 2836/2 movement. This would include fitting.
I am based in the UK and have over 40 years experience

Open it up and see what movement is inside, Gucci Buy their movements, as they are NOT watch makers but a fashion designer. I would expect to see an ETA automatic 2836/2 or similar. The ETA is a Swiss made movement, ETA supply movements for many good watch brands, such as Tag Heuer, early Breitling, Raymond Weil, Fortis, Ebel & the list goes on. Very easy to work on and spare parts are easy to obtain. Great work horse movement is the ETA, hence why everyone else uses them, not just Swatch.
Not sure your watch would have a serial number, not all watches have them. Just because you can’t see one or it doesn’t have one, it doesn’t mean it’s fake.
If you pop the back off, take a photo of the movement and send it to me at watchsauce@gmail.com or if you can place it on here, do so, but I’m guaranteed to see it if you email it to me.
Gucci watches are around £400/£600 range, so should be a good solid watch.
Does it sound solid when you shake it? It shouldn’t squeak or rattle too much at that money. The crystal should be AR coated (anti reflective)
Also use a magnifying glass to look at the dial for imperfections, there should be none. QC at Gucci is tight, so look carefully at the dial.
Hope this helps

The correct battery is SR621SW

Fossil Watches | Answered on Aug 14, 2019


The battery type differs, depending on the movement; what's the model number (on the caseback)?

Michele Watches | Answered on Aug 14, 2019


I'm assuming it's a Gen 3 watch.
These are renowned for this issue, the heat from the charging process softens the glue to such an extent the back detaches.
But the watch is still in warranty, so contact Fossil for a no-charge repair.

Setting The Alarm Time
This Timex clock radio has dual alarms that can be set and used independently. The initial default alarm settings are 6:00 AM for Alarm 1 and 7:00 AM for Alarm 2. The procedure for setting both alarms is the same.
NOTE: The alarm times can only be adjusted when the clock radio is in the OFF mode. If the radio is playing, press and hold the POWER/MODE button until the display briefly shows 'OFF'
and then reverts to the time.
1. Press and hold the ALM 1 button until the Alarm 1 time and the Alarm 1 Buzzer indicator begin flashing in the display, then release the button.
2. Press the TUN + (HOUR) button to advance the display to the desired wake-up hour. Observe the PM indicator to confirm that you have set the wake-up hour correctly. If the PM indicator is 'On' the wake-up hour on the display is PM. If the PM indicator does not appear the wake-up hour on the display is AM.
3. Press the TUN - (MINS) button to advance the display to the correct wake-up minute, and then release the button.
4. Press the ALM1 button once more to confirm the wake-up time setting or after 8 seconds the display will stop flashing and the new wake-up time will be entered automatically. The display will return to the correct time of day but the Buzzer indicator will remain 'on' in the display indicating that the Alarm 1 is now set to wake you to the buzzer.
5. To change the alarm mode from buzzer to radio, or to cancel the alarm, press the ALM 1 button again. The Buzzer indicator will turn on. Press the ALM1 button once more to select the Radio alarm. The Radio indicator turns on. Press the ALM 1 button once more to cancel the alarm function. The alarm indicators disappear and the display returns to the correct time.
6. Follow the same procedure to set the Alarm 2 wake-up time.
