Screws are small,watch out! They are about $2.33 each.Get all the screws loose,leave them in the backcase,lift out the back with all screws still in.I find a cap that's a smaller diameter,also a little high,and put the back on it. You will also have a second domed back,it sit's (or floats)on a gasket,look along the edge of the batt,you'll see a notch,put in a small screw driver,flip it out.Make sure you have the dome back centered. You will have to redo time,date.John Wilson http://www.swatchbattery.com/zaphod said:Now I can... :-(
I bought my X-33 in January 2004. I wore it almost everyday since then, using most of the features several times a day, alarm in the morning, countdown timers all over the day, backlight whenever I needed it, which was very often. Today I pushed the backlight button but all that happened was the second hand switching to end-of-life indication and thus jumping every 5 second now.
Unfortunately I can't say how long the watch was already running with this battery when I bought it.
BTW: Did anyone change the battery himself yet? I'm planning to do this now (first have to google for the battery type, I only have CR2016 lying around).
Stala said:You almost got 31 months, given you bought the watch in Jan 2004 and used the alarm, etc far more than most would. So I think the reports of the battery becoming drained too quickly on the model is exaggerated imho.
Next post...;-)Stala said:I'll be interested to see how you get along with replacing the battery yourself and what battery is in the watch. Good luck!
Hey... It was good as a practice run. :-Dzaphod said:I dared to replace a japanese Energizer battery with a chinese no-name CR2320. Not the best decision I made as the EOL on my X-33 came back on YESTERDAY... no 2 months later and this thing is empty again. :roll:
Unfortunately I don't know anything about adjusting the movement, but there's a service manual for the Omega 1666 movement on Chuck Maddox' site, maybe you find it in there:My Omega looses about 2 seconds a week. I would rather like it to be fast or spot on of course. Is there a way for me to adjust the movement? Some older Omega Quartz watches like the Marine Chronometer have a +/- screw inside. Does anybody have any experience here please?
