You need to push the pins out in the direction of the arrows. Then take out one link from each side. Put the pins back in the same way they came out, with the slot pointing the same direction as before.

Time to replace the battery, but cannot manage to remove the back cover. Any special tricks? I'm familiar with using sharp knife blade to do this, but it's not working. Thanks!

You defenately need a watch case opener.

It can be more than difficult to open a watch case with a sharp knive/screwdriver without destroying it.

A case opener can be the only solution.

Otherwise you'll have to bring your watch to a professional to get the battery replaced.

Good luck

Caravelle by bulova 43b17how to adjust Stainless steel bracelet

To remove some links: If you don't have special tool, at least you have to have something really hard and thin (like the pin you use to post notes on the cork board). Put that pin in to the tiny hole between links where the bracelet pin is and then press/push it forward (follow arrow direction as shown on the inside of the bracelet links.) When the bracelet pin comes out at one end, pull it out of that end totally.
After removing one links, connect the two links next to each other by placing the bracelet pin back into the hole and push it to the other end.
To add some links: You have to have spare links and do the same way with the pin to attach more links.

Date set

The winding stem of the caravelle has two positions when pulled outward from the case. Pulling it full out lets you set the time. And, by rotating the hands through successive twenty-four hour periods it resets the day of the week. Pulling the stem halfway out allows you to set the month, but only if you rotate the stem in a counterclockwise direction..

I have a Bulova Caravelle mens wrist watch case number C877548. I have to replace the battery but I can't figure out how to get the back of the case off. Thanks

Hi. If you take a tiny screwdriver (one that you might use to screw a screw into an eyeglass and run it gently around the back you will feel an indentation where you can insert the tip and pop open the back. The battery is easy to access but trying to get the back back on is the problem! Good Luck.
