First you have to get an eyeglass and examine watch caseback. Can you see the joint or is it monoblock? If there is joint, get strong knife and press into it. Some of watch casebacks are very tight, so, apply great pressure but do not let the blade slip or you will damage the movement.
If the case is monoblock, then you have to open it from dial side.
Be very carefull when doing it as any slip of the blade will damage your watch.

Good luck.

I have a Jules jurgenson watch with serial# 752161 and JXJ stamped on back of it too it has 17 jewels unadjusted Swiss and says Jules jurgenson Corp can u tell me anything about it


The company is Danish, but they were sold in the US by a distributor. Yours is an older one, prior to the name change in 1811, or after 1936.

Jules Jurgensen was a watchmaking company. It was founded by J?rgen J?rgensen in 1740 in Denmark, when J?rgen J?rgensen went into partnership with Isaac Larpent, under the name "Larpent & J?rgensen".
Upon J?rgen's demise in 1811, his youngest son Frederik took over the company and changed the name to "Frederik J?rgensen".
Jules J?rgensen produced many watches in Switzerland. Jules J?rgensen was sold to a company in the US in 1936, and the watches were still produced in Switzerland until 1957, at which time it was first documented that the watches were made by others and have their name put on them.
The company was sold to Mort Clayman in 1974, a watch distributor in the US. According to the company's website, they Mort Clayman died in January 2010, and the company was closed by his family. In 2011, Dr. Helmut Crott, owner of Urban J?rgensen & S?nner acquired the rights from the Clayman family.

I got the plastic cover off the face but cannot figure how to get to where i would put a battery in


Most pocket watches open in the back. Usually you have to have a very thin bladed instrument to pop off the back of the case. Since this is a gold watch I would take it to a jeweler to look at it since it is very easy to scratch up the case if you aren't careful.

Hi there hope you can assist me. My first question to you, and thanks lots I have a Jules Jurgensen watch, and it arrived brand new without a battery. 1) Does a battery for a 7837BR normally...


All watches should arrive with battery fitted. As now there are too many variations of watch movements, it's impossible to tell exact battery code without seeing the watch. Nearest watch repair shop will be able to tell you that.

Some one has over wound my gradads railway pocket watch and somthing has come loose in the back


Possibly the mainspring has been broken. I am guessing that you cannot see what has come loose. The only way is to open the case back and see. If that is what has happened then it can be replaced.
