How to Replace Philip Stein Batteries
Phillip Stein make a range of luxury time pieces with interchangeable watch straps. The watches have the unique distinction of containing 'Natural Frequency Technology'. The watches emit a frequency that makes the wearer more resilient to stress and improves sleep.
The battery in a Phillip Stein should last about 18 months. Should the battery need to be replaced within the two year warranty period, the owner must take it to a registered dealer or the warranty will be cancelled. After the two year warranty period, you can change your own watch battery by following a few easy steps.
Lay the soft cloth out on your work surface. Keep the watch on the cloth at all times to avoid scuff marks or scratches to the watch face.

Slip the small screwdriver under the battery and gently ease it out from under the battery clip. Take care not to damage any of the watch components. If you are struggling, lift up the battery clip and hold it up with your finger while using the screwdriver to remove the battery.
