It is not usual to remove the crystal of a watch the replace the battery. All other watches I have come across need the back to be removed.
I suggest you take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.
You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving.

SOURCE: Good morning. I am considering
The repair to the winder may be only £30.00 but will the watch then work well.Parts for old Omegas can cost a premium and the watch may need a service.A service to an Omega by a good watchmaker will cost £170.00 ish and if it needs parts this will rise.
As to value if its 14ct on a bracelet the gold is worth about £12.00 a grm so if its 30g then the gold is £350/£400.00
Its hard to say what to pay without knowing if the watch works well,if it needs £200.00 spending on it the value is reduced to little more than the gold value so id weigh the watch work out a gold value and then a small amount.

Learn about your watch by following these links. Hope it halps. http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/6584638 Cyma was a company name under the Tavannes umbrella of watch co. names. Founded in 1891 by Henri Sandoz (1851-1913) after 20 yrs of success at the helm of his first company, Henri Sandoz and Cie., the Tavannes Watch Co. was known for many patents and new innovations including patents and contributions for repeaters (chiming watches), pocket chronometers (highly accurate pocket watches), marine chronometers (ships clocks), chronographs, extra thin movements, hermetic (waterproof) cases, metal dials, parts of all kinds and even their own shock protection devices. By the 1920's the Tavannes Watch Co., Tacy (short for Tavannes and Cyma) Watch Co. and Cyma Watch Co. were one of Switzerland's most productive and popular manufacturer's with offices in nearly every overseas market. http://mb.nawcc.org/showthread.php?t=624 What it's worth- only the watchmaker can tell after inspection, as there are too many things to be connsidered (quality of movement and craftmenship, working order, looks, age, state of case, glass, crown, hinges, etc, etc)
