SOURCE: removing the watch stem
Hi, it depends on the watch . Look carefully ,if there is a release button , somethin you can press on or lift up. Sometimes a needle is enough to do the job. On some quartz movements (the cheap ones) you just can't remove the stem ...
hope this will be helpfull!

The indiglo technology is time limited (it dims over the years with use) and cannot be repaired - have you had the watch a long time? if so, I'm afraid it's time to get a new one. Sorry!

use a pocket knife and put the blade in the grove in between the strap and the steel of the case and pull towards the leather of the strap the pins are sping loaded and work simular to a miniature shower rods very simple so dont get nerves bout it if all else fails you can even just destroy them geting them out and get new pins and straps at wallmart for like 5 bucks

I used to work with jewelry. !!BEWARE!!
This method is for face crystals that are completely FLAT! Any convex crystal will shatter without proper tools!!!
Any method of putting the watch cover back with the watch remotely near water/moisture is a mistake. The watch will rust sooner or later.
So if you don't want to pay a jeweler five dollars to put it back on, this is what I did to my sister's watch cover when I could not snap it back.
I took my cushy 1/4 inch mousepad to a vise. You may not have a vise. If you don't, stop reading now and take the watch to a jeweler --one who replaces batteries.
Inside the vise jaws, I used a 5 inch square piece of wood, then my cushy mousepad, then the watch facing the pad, then the back in the right place for restoring.
!!!!NOTE: Not having the back in the right place will smash the stem and damage can/will result!!!
To push the back on, I picked a 12 point socket out of my socket set that was the same DIAMETER as the watch back and placed it CENTERED behind the back.
Recapping, inside vise:
I DO NOT RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO WHAT I DID. People with broken watch crystals become very IRATE when "all it needed was a battery"!
A screw clamp would also give adequate pressure. Any unsupported direct pressure over the crystal will shatter it!
Hope this helped.
