Changing Watch Batteries
Lots of posters ask "what is the battery in my (name of watch)" with a view to changing it yourself. This is a bad idea for many reasons. You don't have the tools or knowledge to remove a rotary screw on back, or the gasket sealant for a waterproof watch. Some fashion watches have 4 traditional screw and need professional grade jeweler screwdrivers. Also, there are about 20 batteries commonly used in watches, in various sizes and internal technology, Lithium Ion, Silver Oxide and Manganese Alkaline. If you buy them, you generally have to buy 10!

Don't sweat the details. Just take the watch to your local jeweler. They have all the batteries at hand and the tools to remove the back. It is done whilst you wait for $8 to $15!

The information on the back of a watch can mean two things: the model of the watch and its serial number.

What is meant rather depends upon the manufacturer.

Many watches are listed by model name for a range but there may be individual types within the range which are referred to by a number.

In some cases the instructions are listed by number and not name.

Even much older watches that display day and date don't require you to change yourself manually so I can't imagine this would be the case.
If the time part is working okay, bring to the jewellery store, they may have someone there to examine the mechanism. If time not working either, you probably need to wind it or change the battery

Manual doesn't help. I changed the battery but the watch is still not powering up.

Take it to a jeweler to find out and maybe get it replaced.

Take your Anne Klein watch to a jeweler who will open it, identify the battery type, and perhaps install a replacement.

For a quality watch like that I would recommend using a specialist watch repairer as they can reseal the watch to be water tight after the battery is replaced.
Could you possibly comment below with a photo of the back of the watch?
There are three main types of watch back plate. Push fit, screw down and screw on.
Push fit is usually a smooth back cover with No notches or grooves. These can be gently levered off to replace the battery then pushed down to 'click' back into place. Some have a slight notch on the body or back plate to make removal easier.
Screw down back plates have dimples or notches at regular places around the edge. This is to allow grip to unscrew the whole back plate. Some versions need a specialist tool to unscrew them.
Screw on plates use four tiny screws to hold the back plate down. These are more commonly used on 'Sports' or digital watches.

It's possible that some part in your watch hasn't been put back (properly) during the replacement procedure of the battery. I'd advise you to go back to the service point and let them check if all the internal part are complete (and in their right position)
