I used a modification of the vise solution. I put a plastic bottle screw cap on either side of the watch (bottle side in) and tightened the vise. I heard a satisfying "pop" and I am on my way. Fred

For CR2016, press and hold the SET lever for atleast 10 - 20 secs. Push the mode button until the hours value blinks. Use the 'ALARM ON' lever to adjust the time. Use the mode button to move from hours to minutes and repeat the same steps. Push the SET lever to set the time once all the required fields are adjusted.

First, find the arrow on the back and use a small screwdriver or knife to pry open the back at that point. Replace battery and then replace back wiht the arrow pointing to the middle of the band as orginially found. Third, press the back on the left side and then use a rubber mallet to strike the "raised" side down and it'll snap in place. Alternative method -- use a cushioned screw clamp to compress the back.

There is a special caseback prying tool for that purpose. You can find them on ebay for a reasonable cost but you just might want to let a watch shop do it for you to avoid damaging the watch. Also, once you get it off, you have to get it back on which may require the use of a case back pliers designed to prevent damage to the crystal when seating the caseback, You will also want to replace the rubber gasket on the caseback to keep it water resistant. Even if it looks OK, the gasket should not be reused as once it has been compressed and removed it will not seal properly and allow dust and water to enter. Most shops, including Sears, will change the battery and gasket for about $8 while you wait.

By the way, that is not the style # of watch, that is battery type.
