HELLO Marijane,

To get the BACK... back on you will likely need a press.

The back opener for snap back watches

(my opinion) can be seen on eBay at

A jewelers loupe ( about 10x power) will help you fond the precise spot to leverage.

Your GOAL is to open the case leaving the LEAST amount of
tool marks. Every time the case is touched,,, it leaves a mark.

THE reason I got into doing watches myself...
huge scratches left by a "PROFESSIONAL".


I suspect you should also (very likely) need a set of jewelers screwdrivers...

All abundantly available on eBay.

Happy hunting!

SOURCE: Time is slow, not accurate at TAG QUARTZ watch

Rarely but sometimes, even the jewelers batteries can be low on energy even when new.

Very unusual that an expensive watch does what you're saying.

Has the watch ever been dropped, OR does it have any noticeable scatches or scuff marks along the edges? use a magnifying glass to inspect it carefully.

if you find unusual marks or scratches, you may have been sold a bad watch too.

No work quartz

This watch is kinetic, in that a moving rotor inside the watch powers a rechargeable battery that runs the quartz mechanism. You should not need to attempt to open the watch! It may be that the battery is flat (especially if it's not been worn for a while) - you can try swinging the watch back and forth to charge it (check online for charging instructions for Seiko or Pulsar kinetic watches). If that fails, take it to a reputable establishment for repair.

Changed battery, now buttons on sides do not work, where to get it repaired?

mcdevito75 here, Most likely during the battery change you moved the quartz movement away from the contact buttons. Re-Open your watch carefully and make sure when you press the buttons, each button is pressing against it"s spot on the quartz movement.

New battery want work? I tried two new ones and nothing worked? Need help.

mcdevito75 here, You may need to start your watch by pressing the MODE button. Most quartz watches will stop once you"ve changed the battery, of course the possibility is there that the watch quartz has burnt out also. See a small watch repair shop in your area.
