All Calibers are different. If you look on the plate where the stem protrudes from the movement you should see a small button that has a dimple in it to prevent your tweezers from slipping when you push it down to release the stem.

After you get the stem out with the crown on it you then will need to hold the stem and rotate the crown counter clockwise to remove the crown. This should work for almost all watches.

Need a new glass for men's seconds watch


I assume you mean a Sekonda watch.
Watches from large scale manufacturers like Sekonda come with a wide range of glass sizes. 30mm diameter is a common one, but you would need to remove the glass in one piece to measure it. Watch glasses are commonly in 0.5mm steps (e.g. 30.0mm, 30.5mm,31.00 mm etc.) and may have rounded or bevelled edges so it is often very difficult to determine the exact size without removing the glass.
Additionally, there is the thickness of the glass to consider.
Finally, the 'glass' may be plastic, mineral glass or sapphire crystal.
All in all, you will have to know how to remove the back of the watch, how to remove the crown and stem in order to remove the movement, how to remove the glass in one piece, how to fit a replacement glass, how to refit the movement, how to refit the crown and stem and how to refit the back.
Alternatively, take it to a watch repair centre - you'll still have a working watch after they've finished with it.....

How can I change the battery on a ladies Sekonda 4602AKT watch.


If it is indeed a screw type back it will have indentions ON the back (6 to 8). A special tool is required to remove the back without damage to the watch back. Any reputable jewelry store should be able to remove the back. If there are no indentions then it should be a pop back. Some watches do not have a slot to slide a pry tool under the back. You have to use a sharp knife..taking appropriate safety precautions.
