Question about Timex 40131 Wristwatch
Which way does the cover go on ? Can not get it to snap on
Align the caseback exactly as it was before you opened it. Make sure
thet the groove for stem is in correct position. Lay the napkin on the
flat table surface, put the watch on it (dial down) and using both
hands and your body weight push the caseback down back in place.
Remember: the side of the caseback wich first came out must be last
Do not use very soft napkin (towel) as this can brake the glass under the pressure.
If all above described DO NOT work, then there is not enough power in your hands or not enough weight in your body and you will need watchmakers help (he/she will be using special watch press to close the watch).
P.S. Do not get upset if you can not close it; I'm very expierenced watchmaker and very often came across the watches wich I was not able to close without the watch press (even my arms are quite strong and the weight is 95kg).
Do not forget to rate, please.

I had the same problem and tried everything. Here was my solution. Use a double-sided 2" rubber mallet. (Below is a photo of a similiar mallet.)
