The best tool to do it is watchmakers knife, but any proper knife with hardened steel blade can do the job. Make sure the blade is NOT flexible.
Check carefully the sides of your watch and you will notice the groove. Place knife blade into that groove and press it in. At the same time try to make a scooping turn to lift the caseback. Usually there must be underlayed caseback as well and it opens exactly in the same manner.
Make sure you do all this carefully and do not let the blade to slip or your watch will end up with nasty scratches or even damaged movement.
That job isn't a big deal, but requires some skill, so, BE CAREFULL.
Don't forget to rate, please.

mcdevito75 here, Depending on it"s age, condition, working or not and how well, it Could have a COLLECTOR VALUE of $40---$100.00 and that is of course what a COLLECTOR is willing to pay. Your local watch repair shop or jeweler could be more precise.
