So I was given a pocket watch as a gift and the battery was dead when I got it and who carries a pocket watch and a phone anymore it has its usefully ness if your a conductor of a usher. I do like pocket watchers' I even have a small collection myself but with a phone in my pocket they are just extra stuff to carry around.

Step 2:

First you have to remove the face and back to remove the face there is two ways to do so one could twist off the hinge or you could remove it by pushing a needle or pin into the small hinge and force it out . To remove the back use a thin knife and pop it open. the order in which you do this is all up to choice. 

Step 3:

Remove the battery from its holder and bend the small tabs up so that they will be able to be soldered or hot glued there very small and my crappie ten dollar  phone can not get that close up or clear for that matter due to the halogen lamps above my work desk.
