  1. Hi Andy, Thanks for your very clear response - it makes sense what you say. I'll have to wait until I feel brave enough to try again, I did previously remove the screw, but I was unable to get any further. Thanks again, hope this helps Thorsten too. Alan
  2. Hi KR Thorsten, Unfortunately, I never found a solution and not having the confidence to go further (unsteady hands. etc. :). I gave up and have left it for the time being (I even tried contacting Citizen help/support and they just wanted me to send them the watch and they would provide me with a quotation..) - I would still be very grateful for some help with this.. Please let me know if you find anything. Thanks again, Alan
  3. ZestyWatchGirl, WatchWeasol, Davey57 Thank-you all for you responses. ZWGirl, Yes, the current cell isn't sufficiently holding charge.

I did try a little to prise things apart after removing the screw near the coil, but nothing budged... I am not sure about 'approaching this from the front' wouldn't that mean removing the stem and removing the movement? I am now a little concerned to go any further..probably beyond my capability..... I wa
  5. Hello, My wife has a Ladies 8512-h16455 eco-drive dive watch and I need to replace the 'battery'. Having removed the back - it is not apparent how to remove the battery, as it is held in by a large metal clip which covers the whole outer edge of the watch mechanism. On the right hand side there is engraved the word 'push' but it isn't apparent where to push. The large clip looks to be held by a screw and there are 4 clips holding it down around the edge. (I tried removing the screw near the coil, but the bracket will not move) I have seen information on the men's equival
