For this watch, the back screw off in a counter-clockwise direction. Put away the knife, and pick up the needle-nose pliers. See the 6 indents on the back of the watch? Push the pliers into the left side of the notch, forcing it in a counter-clockwise direction, and it should twist off.

Some watches, you screw off the backing. It rotates counter-clockwise, like a wood screw, but you need a special tool for it. It may have notches on the exterior, my watch has 6. I just used needle-nose pliers to twist it off, but this may and probably will cause scratches.

How do i remove the back to replace the battery on this watch

Watch backs are usually either push-fit and simply need to be levered off, or are twist-fit and need to be rotated off. If there are a number of indentations around the rim of the back then it is likely to twist off. You need to get a suitable tool or tools to remove the cover or you will damage the back of the watch. Check on amazon or ebay for watch repair tools. Getting the cover back on is usually harder with push-fit and is more likely to lead to damage without the correct tools.
Or take it to a watch shop and they will replace the battery for you!

How do u open back to fix an fossil black 5 atm fs-4351 hand watch

Jerry, If its smooth on the back cover, you have to pry it off carefully. Get a magnifying glass and look around the cover edge, there should be a small under cut. Pry at this point with a penknife blade or similar. If the cover has 6 or 8 small indentations in it then it likely unscrews but you may still need to see a watch shop for the tool to unscrew it.
Fossil watches have a 2 year warranty so if its inside this, take it to a dealer.

How do I remove the back cover of a Fossil JR-8096 (Big Tic) wristwatch?

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 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

Need to open. coleman 40-334 watch not sure if the back is threaded

mcdevito75 here, If the back screws down, you"ll see a series of square holes around the edge of the back cover, in this case you"ll need a special tool called a case back remover tool to un-screw the back cover. If there are no square holes on the back cover, most likely it"s a press type back cover and some of these cavers are very hard to get back on wothout another tool called a case back press tool, these mentioned tools are available on ebay, but, with just a battery replacement, the time and tools you may need the cost is more than a watch repair shop would charge you. Best Bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for this once a year or even longer battery change.

mcdevito75 here, A special tool may be needed to press the back cover back onto your watch, no one can tell until the back cover is removed, this could be the case with your watch, if so, you"ll have a problem. BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop in your area, the cost will be the same if you need this mentioned tool and anyway, the battery change is once a year or even longer
