Place the watch face down on a damp cloth (stops slipping) and lay a small micro flat head screwdriver in one of the 6 grooves, and attempt to screw the back of, anti-clockwise. It's the reverse process to replace the back, but make sure it's tight, to maintain the water seal.

How to open the back


Determine the type of case back on the watch. Set the watch face down on a soft surface and look at the back. If it has slots, it is defined as a screw-back case. If it is smooth, it is defined as a snap-back case.

To open a screw-back watch, use the metal blade of a standard screwdriver to turn the slots counterclockwise. A case-back wrench, which can be purchased at watch-repair stores, can also be used. Set the metal tips of the wrench into the back's slots and turn it counterclockwise to open.

For a snap back case, place the metal blade of a standard screwdriver in the indent between the watch and the case. Gently apply pressure to lift the case up and off of the watch.

Close the case back by setting it back onto the watch. For snap-back cases, line up the indent on the side of the watch and press gently on the case back to close. For screw-back cases, use the screwdriver blade or case-back wrench to turn the slots clockwise, thereby closing the case shut.

Cannot open clasp prestige replica rolex

1)Unscrew the crown until it pops out, the same way you would unscrew the crown to change the time on the watch.
2)Place the watch case opener in the notches around the outside of the back of the watch case. You have to use a watch case opener made for Rolex watches to open the watch. Once the case opener is in place, twist it and the back will pop open.
3)Use a mini screwdriver to loosen a tiny screw on the inside of the watch located near the stem. You do not need to unscrew fully--only loosen it.
4)Pull the crown straight out. The crown and stem should come out easily.
To open the back of the watch
1)Purchase a Rolex watch back opener set, if you do not already have one. This set is able to open and close any size of Rolex case.
2)Match the size of your Rolex case with the same size of grooved metal die from the tool set.
3)Put the metal die on the grooves on the back of the watch case.
4)Turn the die to remove the case.
5)Remove the rubber gasket.

If you are in the market for a real luxury watch you should plan on spending quite a bit of money. If you think you found a great deal on a luxury watch, make sure it is a real one and not a fake or knock off. Don't get caught up in the great deal you think your getting and forget about quality.

If all your after is a knock off so you can sport the name, it will not be hard for you to find one. There are many Internet sites and auction sites that claim they are selling the real luxury watches, but are not. First clue will be the price. Anything under $250 is probably a knock off.

Just because you find a watch on a website does not mean it is a real luxury watch. Some knock off watches have some pretty official looking web sites. Make sure you buy your watch from a well known dealer to insure that you are not getting ripped off. If the only place you see a particular watch for sale is on the Internet this may be another sign that it is a knock off.

Luxury brands of watches are not sold at more than a 50% discount no matter what. Even the most aggressive dealer will not give you this big of a discount off the retail price. If the dealer is going to give you this good of a discount its probably a fake. Luxury brands are also not sold at clearance or end of the season sales. There is no need for the retailer to sell their valuable jewelry at such high discounts.

If you think you have found a real luxury watch, be sure to do your research. You can do this research right from home on the Internet. Do a search on the brand of watch you would like to purchase. If your watch is not a fake dealers will discuss its quality. Collectors and owners will also be discussing the assets of the watch. If you cant find anything like this when you do a search beware that it may be a knock off. A couple brands that tend to be imposters are Klaus Kobec, Krug Baumen, and Montre Suisse.

Just remember that any deal that looks too good to be true usually is. Luxury watches are not going to be sold at 70 to 95% off. These low prices are made to draw your attention away from the quality and onto the fact that you will be saving a ton of money. Make sure you pay attention to quality so you don't get ripped off. Even if you save hundreds, you could save a lot more if you would have just went to the local store and skipped the middle man. When investing this much money into a watch, make sure you also invest the time to make sure it is a worth while investment.

Hope it Helped!

Canot get the back off my Indiglo watch to change the battery

There is different proccedure for different watch to take out the back. Following are some of the proccedure to open the backcover of the watches:-
1. Some plastic watch have four screw in the back, you just have to unscrew the screws and take out the back.

2. Some of the watch have press back technology, which enables the watch to be water resistant and thus, the backcover of these watches are pressed very tight. You just need a back opener, and at the back if this back opener has to placed between the case and backcover and has to be tilted and backcover can be opened.
(Backopener is a tool which is like thick & hard blade with sharp edges like knife but not very sharp; these edges can get easily between the gap of backcover and case. - this tool can be obtained from any watch tools store easily)

Opening back of watch for battery replacement

Turn the watch sideways & look around the edges of the back of the watch. You may have to use a magnifier to do this. Look for an area that has a gap. Put the knife there & pry it open. Hope this helps.
