Test the batteries.

See the battery tester for operating instructions.


If the watch has two batteries and only one tests “replace”, replace both batteries. If both test “good”, there is something wrong with the watch. Refer it to your watchmaker.

Install the New Batteries . IMPORTANT:

Be sure to test new batteries before installing. For tester settings, follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Install the new Star Struck battery(s) with the same side up as the one(s) you replaced (8A). Remember, the watch won’t work if the batteries are put in the wrong way.

SPRING CLIP: Place one end of the spring clip in place and firmly push the other end into its slot.

SCREW-ON CLIP: Place the clip over the new batteries. Hold the screw with the screw holding tweezers to start it in the hole. Tighten the screw.

IMPORTANT: If there is a rubber-sealing gasket in the base of the watch, make sure it is lined up properly before closing the back.


Close the Watch

After placing the back on the watch, slip the retaining ring over it and tighten with the special retainer wrench.


Clean the Watch
Gently wipe the watch to remove any fingerprints or smudges.


Reset the Watch

Reset the watch and make sure it is working. In analog watches, if there is no second hand, observe the minute hand through a magnifying glass until you detect movement.
