Introduction

If your Nixon Watch needs a battery replacement, this guide will help if there is any question on how to replace the battery. This guide is specifically only for Nixon Watch. To replace the battery there's no special technical knowledge needed. The only thing that is needed is good lighting and a nice, flat area to keep the tiny screws in place.

Conclusion

You have successfully completed the battery

replacement on your wristwatch.

If the second hand doesn’t begin its rotation there is

one of two common problems. The first is that the

crown has not been properly engaged after the time

adjustment on steps 11 and 12. The second problem would be caused by a bad battery in which case you would need to repeat the steps over with another new battery.

If the problem persists contact the manufacturer for

further troubleshooting steps.

Good guide but one does not need to force out battery with a screwdriver. This is overkill. I would not recommend putting a screwdriver there because the gears are exposed in that area and a slip would damage them. Just a finger nail is needed to move a little spring cover slightly to let battery out. Same goes for putting battery back in. Fingers are all that are needed at that point.

I have a "Newton" model Nixon. All black and the watch hands are floating circles just to clarify. It seems to have a battery cover, almost like a strip, holding it in place. Is there a tutorial for this extra step?
