I bought a watch that i really like,i am sending you the numbers that are in the back of the watch,my problem is that we cant take the back off to insert a new battery.i took it to a watch repair and they want to charge me 20.00 just ti put a new battery in.i would like to know if there is a way to take the back off without ruining my watch thank you.
I don't see any numbers in your post, and I am sorry to say that I would highly suggest trying a different jewelry store. Gruen is not a difficult brand to work with and you should be able to find someone cheaper then that. At my old store we charged $6 Have you tried JC Penny? or Wal-Mart? Just ask if they are someone who has done a few watches (not just someone covering the jewelry department while the regular person is on lunch or break). If you really want to do it your self, post the type and model numbers you should see on the back of the watch, for further help.

It is really easy to find a manual for your Casio watch.
Look at the back of the watch, you can find a number inside an square engraved in the back metal.
If you let me know the number I can send you the manual so you can get to know each and every function your Casio watch has got.
The least time-consuming method is to follow the instructions in the manual. Download the manual for the watch module from Casio worldwide site. The module number is a 4-digit number set inside a rectangle on the back of the watch. Usually on the periphery of the circle.
Change the battery. If your watch stops ticking, chances are the watch is not broken and the battery simply needs to be replaced. You can purchase a watch battery at your local department store or drugstore. Use the screwdriver to pry the back off the watch and place the new battery in the same place where the old one fit.
If your watch is still not working, determine the problem. If you can hear the watch ticking but the hands are not moving, there may be a gear stuck inside. If only one of the hands does not move, the hand itself could be broken. Once you determine the problem, you can see whether it makes more sense to purchase a new watch or get the old one fixed.
Check your watch warranty. If your Fossil watch came with a warranty that is not yet expired, Fossil will fix your watch if you send it to the company and pay for shipping and handling. See the "Resources" section below to fill out the Watch Repair Form provided by Fossil.com. If your watch strap is broken, however, Fossil will charge you a fee as broken straps are not covered in the warranty.
Check a competing local watch repair store. There are watch repair stores located all over the United States that will repair a Fossil watch if your watch is no longer under warranty or if you do not want to pay the shipping and handling to send the watch to Fossil's watch repair department. Although the watch repair store may not have the exact strap you are looking for, it may offer a replacement strap that is similar to the one that originally came with your watch.
Return the watch to the store where you bought it. If you purchased a Fossil watch that was broken when you purchased it or broke recently after you brought it home, you may be able to return the watch for a refund or store credit. Check with the store's policy before purchasing the watch if you are concerned about returns.
mcdevito75 here, There should be a tab or cutout on the back of the watch, look very carefully, you may need a magnifier galss to help out, generally this cutout or tab in the back cover is between the arms, where the band hooks to the watch. Once found use a sharp knife (steak knife) to pry off the back cover.
