Does it have what is used to replace the battery ans press the back closed
No, it doesn't have the back closer for the popoffs. I broke my glass trying to pop it back it.

Where do you get batteries for watches? Can I find them in regular grocery stores?
Note which size is stamped on your current battery (sometimes permanently stamped on the outside back of the watch or noted in the original manual), and then see this watch and button cell battery chart:
https://www.batteriesandbutter.co..._chart.htm

I have found up to 10 comparable batteries for $1 online and at the dollar store! Meritline.com for one has some popular sizes at inexpensive rates. I have purchased from them and never had a problem. Who cares if they only last a few months? Much better than paying $5 or more per.

NOTE: Be aware that if your watch is a waterproof model, opening the back may ruin it forever.

i bought one of these kits last time they were for sale, bunch of crappy tools. I tried to take a pin out from a link and the vice tool just bent.
Iagree
Got one about 6 months ago, pure (choose any of the following):
  1. CRAP
  2. JUNK
  3. GARBAGE
  4. POS

and that's what it is.
btw, If you bought one of these "a few years ago" and it was good, don't expect
the current offering to be of the same quality!

Barnum was right Wink

Amateur question but can you make a new hole in a leather band with any of these tools?
If you have a Victorinox Swiss Army Knife, the reamer tool (next to the corkscrew which opens wine bottles) can punch holes into leather. You press down to punch in, and then twist to make the hole. There are Youtube videos which show you how to do this.

My Citizen Eco-Drive watch I had for 8 years just failed. The rechargeable battery stopped working. The watch was advertised as being "battery less" and depended on solar power. Even solar powered watches have batteries these days!

Even automatic watches like Rolex's aren't as accurate as a quartz watch. The best way to keep time these days seems to be on a smartphone.

Edit: I'm not buying this toolkit. The reviews on Amazon state the quality is very poor. Do a search on Amazon for "16 PCS Watch Tool Kit"

"These tools look just like the higher quality tools available from various watch manufactures and retailers, but they are not just like the higher quality tools.
Very cheaply made. Barely usable to size a band.
The micro Phillips screwdriver stripped out on the first attempt to use.
One of the pin punches bent double on the first attempt to use it. Lucky there are three of them.
Don't let the low price fool you, pay the extra $10 for the real professional watch tool set."

and

"When I bought this little kit I was amazed by the price. So many little tools at such a low price is great--unless you can only use them once before your kit has a few broken tools! The only tool in my kit worth owning is probably the hammer; the pin tools for removing band pins are incredibly cheap and slightly oversized for most of the pin holes on my bands. All of my pin tools are now either bent or broken (the blue plastic pin remover is also broken). Unfortunately the list goes on...the knife is very soft metal and burred after a few watches. The screwdrivers are a joke as is the tweezer, the spring bar remover looks like a child ground the 'U'-end so it doesn't grab the bar properly. It's much easier to go to a good hardware store and buy some small drill bits and make your own pin tools---just use hardwood dowels for the handles--and buy some good tweezers, screwdrives, and some new smooth pliers, and you'll have a far better set of tools than this junk!"

You can make a hole using a metal hanger.

First turn on your stove top, and let the metal hanger heat up on the stove until it gets pretty hot, then use the hanger and make the new hole where you want it. Just make sure you don't burn yourself, or your house Smilie

Oh wow, I just went looking for watch batteries today.

I would recommend buying the battery off Amazon, you can purchase a multipack for the cost of a single battery at Radioshack, Riteaid, or Walgreen. The radioshack in my area didn't even carry namebrand coin batteries and the cost started at 5.99. Riteaid started at 4.29 and Walgreen started at 4.99, whereas online you can find multi packs for 3-5

I bought this last time - came in very handy for shortening the chain length on the seiko I bought for my wife for her birthday. Worth 5 bucks for sure.

Can I use this to replace the battery in my solid gold diamond-plated mechanical Rolex watch?

BTW the lowest I've seen this for is 3.99 from 1saleaday.
