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.

How do I open the face of a PHOLM watch?

take the watch to a qualified watch repair person, if it is of value to you. you do not have the proper tools or knowledge base if you are asking here.

if you try to open the back, the tool you use will slip and cut your fingers or hand. it may seem like a simple job, but you don't know how intricate and tiny the screws are that hold the watch together.

Broken Armani sign

Yes it can be fixed but may need a jeweller. You cannot take the glass face out on it own, you have to remove the watch back plate and then pull out the watch mechanism. (Once the back plate is off removing the mechanism is not difficult) You then have access to both the inside glass face and the watch face. If you can do this you will need to glue the Armani logo with something like super glue, but not applied directly to watch, too risky. If you have tweezers hold the Armani logo in them. Use a pin and dip it into a small blob of super glue, apply the pin to the back of the logo and then place it on the watch face as quickly as possible and align. Once aligned apply a little pressure with the tweezers on the logo to help adhere, about 5 seconds, leave to dry and then put watch back together. If this all seems to difficult a jeweller can do it in about ten minutes.

How do I put the bezel of a Time Expedition Indiglo wristwatch back on? I've done everything shy of driving over it with the car.

you need a watch press to put the watch back on
find the correct size disk for both sides of the watches and then press down untill you here the pop of the back .

If you do not have a press you can try to use a small jeweler hammer and hammering it back on . Only a jeweler with plastic head can you use. You also have to have a sponge or something to put the face down and not get ruined when hammering.

You will need to be very careful

lay watch face down on sponge or thick cloth.

align watch back with proper groove where knife fits in to pop back off

Gently start hammering around the edges of the watch back case.

Do so with increasing pressure until watch seals back on .

If you cannot hammer back on without damaging stop and bring it in to a professional

If one of the hands have fallen off the face of the watch. can it be repaired by taken the back off or the crystal face? If the crystal face can be removed what is the proper way to remove the crystal

Thank you for contacting FixYa.
Hands are fixed through the back of a watch but due to the delicate nature and complication of this type of repair, it needs to go to a watch repair service tech.
Best regards. Jewel

I have a Fossil Arkitekt wristwatch (FS-2919). on of the hands on one of the three tiny dials has come loose and is floating around the face. I probably wouldn't care, but the main watch hands get caught...

You will have to remove the back off the watch (cant take off the face). You MIGHT be able to access the hand from there, but you may have to adjust some of the watch inner movement and that will be risky but you can try.
Goood luck

I suspect the case back can be opened by prying up on one of the corners. But you may need a specail tool for this. I would hate to see you scratch up the back or cut you finger.

The face plate which holds the crystal on my fossil watch popped up when I turned it and I can't figure out how to pop it back in place.

This is called BEZEL (you say face plate). It is snap on fitted and must be pushed back on to case. Some bezels are very hard to fit.If there is not enough strength in your fingers to push it back, then you will have no option, but to visit your nearest watch repair shop. Watchmakers are using special press for fitting bezels.

Rate me, please.

HELP !! can't snap armitron watch cover back on

Take a small thin piece of cloth or paper towel, fold it and use to cover the watch face.  Put one quarter (coin) on top and one quarter (coin) on the bottom.  Place the sandwich in a pair of pliers, center thhe pliers and press, when you hear the snap, the back is on.  Do not use on a watch with a domed crystal, or at least use a lot more padding over the face.  Takes 10 seconds.
