Question about Colibri America's Coin Collection PWS-95911-W Pocket Watch
My gift was irreparably damaged at the engraver. I need a new back only for a Coin Colibri Pocket Watch in silver tone, the model number is CL-PWS-95911-N. Where can I get one without buying a new watch?
SOURCE: My colibri pocket watch that
If you want to do this yourself, on the back of the pocket watch if you look at the seam going around the back, you will see a little notch. With a solid knife ( a pocket knife will suffice) take the edge of the knife and put it in that slot and pry up. The back should come right off. The battery probibly will be a 371 which will be covered a little with a piece of metal with a liitle hole in it. Take a tweezer ad GENTLY pull the metal piece away from the battery, and the battery shoul pop out a little. After you do that take the new battery and go backwards from how I told you to take it out. When putting the back back on just press with your hands and it should just snap back on. If you still have problem please let me know and I will be glad to assts you futher.Good luck!

Just figured this out myself - couldn't find an answer on the internet or Colibri's website.
Look at the bottom edge of the pocket watch near the hinge (the end opposite of the post). On my watch, there is a small indentation, barely noticable, along the bottom of the side of the back cover directly opposite (but very near) to the hinge. Take a small fine screwdriver (as you would use to change a screw in a pair of glasses), and gently pry that into the groove. A small amount of force is required, but the back just "pops" off.
Keep in mind, there is a risk of scratching the cover. So if that risk is unacceptablen to you, a watch store should be able to do this as well. But it was pretty easy. Hope that helps.

Usually all quartz watches are supplied with calendar setting mechanism and it is very simple-
try to pull out crown and you will notice that there are two clicks,so, when the crown is pulled out to the first click, the date can be adjusted by the turn of the crown. When crown is pulled further out (second click)- the watch is in hand setting position and you can adjust time.
Did it help?

mcdevito75 here, This is a very common problem easily fixed, when the battery was change the repair prerson could have interfered with the seconds hand bending it ever so slightly so it hits the other hands or it became loose, return to the person who changed the battery, they"ll take the back off and fix that seconds hand. Remember this may be no ones fault so I don"t know about any extra charges for service on your watch. This is just my info to you.

Place the tip of your pocket knife in the slot on the back of the watch. Pry the back off.
Take your tweezers and grasp the metal piece that is hiding the battery.
Once that metal piece is out the battery should come out too.
Put the new battery in and cover it with the metal piece.
Put the back of the watch back on and snap it into place.
