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.

You do not need to go all over the world to find replacement for your watch glass. You have plenty of excellent watchmakers in France. I've been there, so, I know. All you have to do is to find your nearest watch repair shop and bring your watch in. Watchmaker will get all the measurements and will replace the glass.
Rate me, plz.

The back is probably a screw on back like the front bezel. If it doesn't come off easily take it to a watchmaker rather than doing damage. Try placing the watch in the palm of your hand and place the other palm on top of the watch. Like a sandwich. Now try twisting the back loose. Lefty loosey.. righty tighty! If you get it open be very careful. Remember the watchmaker's motto. DO NO DAMAGE!
