Could be Following Reason

1, Watch movement required overhaul
2, Circuit or coil warn out
3, Battery connection are not on right place
4, Test new battery to check its strength

If watch has only battery cover on the back and does not has backcase
like most of swatch watches are then watch can not be overhaul.
hope this information is helpful

I have tried 4 "professionals", including a jeweller, and they have all failed to find a way into the watch. Surely there is a way??!! (All I can think is that the glass must unscrew e.g. with a suc

I saw some photos recently of a LeClip lapel watch and there appears to be a separation where the round portion holding the movement sits against the clip construction... that is where I would try and pry it apart. Here's some info on leClip FYI...

The brand of these watches is "Le Clip" and they are not Swatch nor are they by the Swatch Group. They should not be mistaken for the Swatch Clip watches or the Clip prototype. The watches made by Le Clip were also from the eighties and that shows. They were very trendy in those days and a worldwide success. There were a big range of different ones and there even exist Maxi's, just like Swatch! Today they are very hard to find. The biggest problem wit Le Clip watches is that they were not designed to get a new battery! I do not know how to open it, I have one here but I do not see how to do it.
Biederman & Company has become the United States ad agency for Le Clip, a Swiss-made watch that may be clipped to a place of your choice. According to Barry Biederman, the watch has already caught on in Switzerland, Britain, France and Spain, where 500,000 of them are expected to be sold this year.
With the United States added, the sales goal for 1987 is two million.
The watch is being made by Le Clip S. A. of Geneva, and it has set up an American marketing arm called Le Clip U. S. with Steve Bochner, formerly a regional sales manager of Swatch Watch U.S.A., as managing director. Le Clip will have a suggested sales price of $35.
The budget for the October-through-December introduction in New York will be about $500,000, and national spending next year should be $2 million to $3 million. All in good time.

Suddenly its stops so i bought a new battery but still it wouldn't work even with a new battery

You are not in luck - Irony watches are not made to be serviceable and therefor you will have to send it back to Swatch or one of their dealers - hopefully it is under warranty.

My Swatch Irony watch has recently been running slow. I thought it might be a low battery, but after a replacement, it still loses time (a few minutes each day). Any ideas?

Thank you for contacting Fixya,<br /> I would have the battery checked again. Sometimes batteries in stores can be past the extended life of battery. Otherwise could be a number of issues. Has it been around water? Dropped? Could need cleaning. In cases of most watches, like Swatch, the cost to have repaired may exceed the watch. <br /> You can contact Swatch at:<br /> <a href=""></a>

Swatch Irony Battery replacement will not work

mcdevito75 here, I am thinking your watch ran fine before the battery change. It sounds like the new battery is not makeing good enough contact, you can try, removeing the battery and cleaning the contacts in the watch carefully with a Q tip, dip the Q tip in anything containing alcohol cologne, rubbing alcohol, perfume wet the Q tip good, then sqeeze most out of the Q tip as not too saturate the battery contacts, also clean the battery itself, the oil on your fingers could give it a poor contact on the watch. The stop watch section doesn"t take as much battery power as the second hand. You may also be able to jump start your watch also, You"ll need a needle and a magnifier glass, With the back off your watch, right in the middle of the movement, just below where the stem (winder) goes, you"ll just see part of a little gear, this is the hour hand gear, see if you can gently move that gear just a fraction, place the needle between the teeth of the gear and try to move it as gentle as possible then se if the gear will move on it"s own., be very carefull with the movement. Swatch watches are collectables. If you don"t feel comfortable doing the above, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for help.
