Remove the batteries. IMPORTANT:

Before removing batteries, be sure to note which side is up. You’ll have to put the new batteries in exactly the same. In some watches, the batteries are held in by a small metal clip. If so, carefully follow these directions for removing them.

SPRING CLIP: Lift up one end of the metal clip with the fine point tweezers-it will come out. Then, remove the batteries (4a).

SCREW ON CLIP: Remove the screws with the small screwdriver (4b). Be careful not to lose them. Caution: Clip may spring out; maintain pressure or screw may be ejected.

PERMANENT CLIP: Lift the outside edge of the battery out of its compartment with the small screwdriver (4c).
