You are watching: How to replace skagen watch battery

If you own a Skagen Wrist Watch, then you need to be extra careful about taking your wrist watch in for a batter replacement. Watch the Video Below, and find out why, and read my concerns about Skagen below the video.

I’ve personally never owned a Skagen Watch. However, don’t think that is because I don’t like them.

I’m just being honest with you!

Skagen makes a really good, and very fashionable watch. They are extremely popular, and work very well. 

The quality of the watch is fantastic. I have not seen any of them come in for service or a battery that had one of those cheap $2.00 movements in them. For the most part, the only issues I have ever been involved with are the common crystal replacement, and the battery swap.

Skagen watches are very thin and highly wearable watches. They feel comfortable on your wrist, and they hold up to wear very well. They, however, have one huge problem, and it is a problem that I’ve seem more and more lately, as many of my customers continue to go to the Mall Battery places, or pawn shops to get they batteries replaced.

For the past two years, more and more of my customer’s have come to me to change out the batteries in their Skagen watches, and because I know how to do it, I can swap out a battery for them in about five minutes.

However, a few of my customers will come in and show me their watch, and ask me to make sure I can get the back cover on. Most of the time, if it is a Skagen, I can safely assume one of two things… First, that the customer tried to change out their own battery. I know, CVS has batteries cheap, and all you need is a screwdriver! LOL

The other case is that they took it somewhere, and the store did not put the case back together the correct way, damaged the back cover or worse, and now nothing fits.

This is an inherent problem with Skagen, because to give you such a fashionably think watch, the case back, frame and bezel are all thin and delicate themselves. If you try to push down the back cover, from the center of the cover, you will damage the watch case cover, and never be able to repair it.

In some cases, people push so hard, that the push the movement and dial down, damaging not just the back cover, but the dial and hands, or worse yet, damaging the movement itself, thus totally destroying the watch!
