There are many wristwatches specifically designed to make it impossible for the consumer to change the battery himself, forcing him to take the watch in for service. Fortunately, this is not the case with movado watches. These timepieces can be opened up by the user, allowing for a relatively quick and inexpensive battery change.
Turn the Movado watch face down and place it over a microfiber cloth to protect the face.
Insert the tip of a small, flat-head screwdriver behind the back panel and pop it off. Set it aside.
Lift the rubber gasket out of the watch and set it aside. This exposes the circular battery inside.
Use the tip of the screwdriver to pop out the battery and set it aside.
Fit a new battery in the compartment and replace the rubber gasket and back panel.
