Place the watch in the case holding vise. Clamp the watch in the case holding vise by opening the two halves of the block. Place the watch in the middle, and gently release or tighten the two halves so that they hold the watch firmly (2a).

If the watchband does not unbuckle or unclasp, separate the band by pressing down with the pointed tool to remove the spring-loaded pin that connects the band to the clasp or watch (2b).

Remove the batteries. IMPORTANT:

Before you remove the batteries, be sure to note which side is up. You’ll have to put the new batteries in exactly the same way. In some watches, the batteries are held in by small metal clips. If so, carefully follow these directions for removing the various types of clips:

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).
