Watch backs are usually either push-fit and simply need to be levered off, or are twist-fit and need to be rotated off. If there are a number of indentations around the rim of the back then it is likely to twist off. You need to get a suitable tool or tools to remove the cover or you will damage the back of the watch. Check on amazon or ebay for watch repair tools. Getting the cover back on is usually harder with push-fit and is more likely to lead to damage without the correct tools.
Or take it to a watch shop and they will replace the battery for you!
you are going to need something small, i have used in the past, just a butter knife ***BE VERY CAREFUL
You should be able to see a very small tang over lapping the case, put your small butter knife under that and twist/lift at the same time.
Thank you for contacting FIxYa.
Turn your Timex Ironman face down and remove the four screws holding the back cover in place.
Remove the back case cover by gently prying it up with your screwdriver. Be careful to avoid disrupting any electrical contacts with the tip of your screwdriver.
Remove the interior sticker that covers the battery by lifting it up with the tip of your screwdriver. It should come off relatively easily. At this point the small circular battery should be visible in the compartment.
Lift up the small metal clip (battery strap) that covers the battery using the tip of your screwdriver.
Remove the battery from its housing and replace it with your new battery (available at any electronics store or online). Reassemble the watch in the same way you to took it apart.
I also have a Prague automatic watch (not the same model) which I purchased in 10/06 and have had it repaired twice. If you purchased the watch new, a little white warranty paper should have accompanied it. If not, you might be out of luck. Anyhow, each Prague has a two year warranty. My warranty instructed me to send the original receipt, a check for $10 (for return shipping) and the watch to Croton Repair; 195 Anderson Avenue; Moonachie, NJ 07074. There of course is no phone number to call them. Make the check out to Croton Repair. The warranty also says they do not guarantee they will fix the watch, but they guarantee they'll send you the watch back if it cannot be repaired. It took about 5 weeks and my watch came back repaired. Unfortunately about 6 months later it broke again, same exact problem (no long self-winds, ticks or keeps time, my watch also has a diamond at each hour, two of which fell out)... I've seen a lot of the issues people are posting seem to be the automatic watches not working. Probably duds, the inner workings seem to be very sensitive.
