Question about Timex Expedition 84601 Wristwatch
I can't get the back of my eddie bauer watch off to change the battery
When you look at the back are there three small rectangular indents evenly spaced on the edge on the back? If so you'll need a special tool for opening waterproof watches. the tool adjusts to fit the three indents then press down as you turn counterclockwise. you can find the tool on amazon.com or your local jewelry store. make sure the gasket is in place and not damaged before screwing the back on.
here is a link to the tool

I have an Eddie Bauer watch that is approx 15 years old. One of the numbers on the face is falling off....how can I get this repaired?

SOURCE: Eddie Bauer watch.
these watches are waterproof so the stem is screwed down to seal out water. Try turning the stem to unscrew it somewhat , then pull out the stem to set.

Watch makers/technicians use a special press to replace the back. You can get these presses but the cost can be more than it is worth.
Since the watch is most likely water resistant and you will have to go to a watch maker/technician to replace the back anyway I recommend having the rear seal inspected and replaced if needed and having the watch pressure tested to be sure that it is sealed to factory specifications.
