For closing your caseback you need the man with very strong hands first, but it might not work as some casebacks can be closed using special tools only.
Before you visit the watchmaker, try this: first of all open your bracelet by taking out spring lug. This will make more space at the back. Then take watch caseback and check for groove in it. Align that groove with stem (pin going into watch movement) and deepen grooved caseback side as it should be. Then without turning caseback apply great pressure with both hands to the watch(from caseback and dial sides). If hands are strong enough, caseback should snap on into place.
In case if it doesn't work, find a piece of thick leather (wide mens belt will do) and place it on completely flat surface (table top). Place the watch face down on that leather, adjust caseback groove with stem again and try to press caseback down with both hands, only this time using your weight.
If all mentioned above doesn't work- you have to go to see watchmaker.

Good luck.

DKNY NY4062 Watch how do l take the back off to replace battery


Take your DKNY watch to a jeweler for a demonstration of how to remove the back without mangling it. You may even be able to persuade the jeweler to install a new battery - all for a reasonable sum.

Hi. I have a DKNY watch NY4791. How do I remove the back to change the battery. Does it require a special tool that only a jeweler or watch repair would have? Thanks. -Susan.


Hi Susan, most Watches will require a tool to remove the back, some use a knife like tool, and some use an adjustable key type tool to fit the slots of the watch cover, so that you can unscrew the back off. Sometimes you can use a thin knife too, be very careful not to cut yourself, and also not to damage the rubber gasket. The gasket sometimes will need replacement on some watches if they are waterproof. I recommend having a watch expert look at it if you feel you can't do this yourself.
Also the tools are available on eBay. I hope this helps you. Joe

It is probably replaceable. Try to locate a watch repair shop or and jeweler who repairs watches. If they don't have one, then contact DKNY directly.

Have you ried taking it back to the supplier? If it is still under warranty, then they should be willing to replace tha battery and if that is not possible they should replace it.

How can i tell a fake from authentic?


mcdevito75 here, Best Bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area, they can authenticate your Gucci watch for you. If you can, remove the back cover of your Gucci and record any and all numbers and other info off the watches movement itself then check online at Gucci.com. If your not familiar with watches, specially Gucci an expensive watch let a small watch repair shop remove the back cover and give you all info needed to authenticate the watch.

Dkny ladies watch winder lost and watch stopped


DKNY is typically a quartz movement and doesn't have a "winder". I believe the part you are referring to is the crown. The watch may have stopped working for several reasons. The first three things I would suspect is that the battery died, the watch is in the set position, or the movement was damaged when the crown was coming off. If the watch is in the set position then pushing the stem in will cause the watch to run. The next thing to do is to replace the battery since it is only a few bucks. If it runs then you can replace the crown and your set. If it doesn't run I would suggest replacing the movement along with the crown and that you will have to price and see if it is within reason since this type of repair wont be covered under warranty.
Depending on the model of DKNY you may have to go through DKNY for the part. Remember that they are manufactured by Fossil. You could save yourself a lot of time by going to your local watch repair shop.

Thanks!
