The crystal is cracked in my Relic mens
Problably not something you should tackle by yourself. I replace them and have experience. You would need to make measurements and order from a place that has inventory. Then you would need to remove case back and movement. Then you would push out the crystal from the inside. The new crystal needs to be installed with the proper "glue". This also needs to be ordered. I suggest you take it to a local watchmaker that knows how to do this. But, best of luck

Does not run. does this watch have a battery in
There are two types power sources for watches. Automatic and battery.
Automatic needs to be either wound by the crown (winder on the side) or wound by the movement of the wrist while it is worn.
The battery powered is self explanatory.
Since you didn't include the model it's difficult to say for sure because Relic makes both automatics and battery powered watches. Although I can tell you is most automatics will clearly labeled. If your watch say automatic somewhere on the face or back you need to contact Relic for service because your watch has a 12 year warranty.
To prevent violating your warranty a jeweler should be the one who replaces the battery if it is battery power.
I included the link to Relic watches below for info on the warranty and instructions.
Hope this helps.http://relicbrand.com/

Battery for Relic watch ZR77100
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!

Need directions to change links on relic zr77271 watch
Hello Charles Cooper and welcome to fixya.
I have NEVER even seen a RELIC watch
( and am a amateur (unpaid horologist)) but
I love all timepieces...
A quick search of the internet reveals...
A band tool...
pin pusher (search on eBay) is REQUIRED
to push the pins out of both sides of the link
you will want to remove. The FIRST/BEST tool
you will want to purchase will be at least
a 10x power jeweler's loupe (magnifier).
answer below could be EXACTLY what
you are looking for...
You will be pushing from the SMALL end.
this does not require a lot of FORCE but
it is WELL BEYOND any pressure any
bare handed pressing can accomplish...!!
((( pin tool MIGHT be your best choice ))).
Not really (novice) AMATEUR work...!!
Nor is it ROCKET SCIENCE...
but you would be well advised to get QUALITY
mentoring... Which would result in your purchasing
some QUALITY tools (plentiful/reasonable on eBay).
Work on a fine weave cloth & NEVER over a carpet.
Teeny screws can be found by shining a flash-light
across the floor (or vacuuming with a fine mesh cloth
inside your vacuum nozzle).
The true/best way to find your required tools
is to state your case and look on the WEB...
(Pictures really help).
Internet WISDOM is usually 80% BS & 90% just
plain WRONG (or vise versa (I can never recall)).
