A very clear description of how to take the case bace off and put back on. I would only add that is a very good idea to obtain a new O-ring seal to replace the old one and add the proper silicone grease to the seal and case (very light amount. Might be hard to find a seal, but be sure you get the right one (right size)

There is a reason why Bulova watches cost so much when you need to replace the battery....it's DIFFICULT! You can try the following, but I would HIGHLY recommend having a jeweler replace it for you. At one time Walmart did it for next to nothing, but I don't know if they do Bulova watches at this time, but it costs nothing to call them.
Try this AT YOUR OWN RISK:
The best choice for removing a threaded caseback is to use a "caseback removal tool", which consists of two or three adjustable "pins" attached to a handle (most WalMarts sell a two-pin tool in their jewelry department, and you can purchase a better three-pin tool from several vendors on eBay). To use it, start by placing the watch face-down on a padded surface (to avoid scratching the crystal). Adjust the pins so that they very snugly fit into the notches cut into the caseback; if you don't, the pins can jump out when you try to use it and scratch the watch. Place the tool over the caseback and engage the pins into the slots; then, holding the watch steady with one hand and the tool in the other, give the tool a counterclockwise turn to loosen the back (it may take a lot of force to do this, especially if this is the first time the battery is being replaced). Once the caseback is loosened (usually about 1/4 to 1/2 turn), remove the tool and finish unscrewing the back by hand to avoid scratching the watch. Be careful as you remove it as some watches use a very thin O-ring on the back to make a watertight seal.
Afer replacing the battery and ensuring the watch is running properly again, carefully inspect the surface of the case and the threading on the caseback and remove any dust or grimy deposits with a soft cloth. Then, place the caseback onto the case, being careful to align the O-ring or other seals, as well as the caseback threads (tip: to ensure the threads are lined up, place the back on the watch and turn it counterclockwise about 1/2 turn or until you feel the ends of the threads "fall" into place). Screw the caseback down as far as possible by hand, then use the removal tool to tighten it the rest of the way.

Change the battery


You need to remove the back of the watch to get to the battery. If the watch is a water proof watch then the back is screwed on. After removing the back take care not to damage the gasket.
If you cannot remove the back of the watch then take it to a watch repairer, they can replace the battery and it won't be expensive.

Just bought the 96r000 bulove 16 diamond watch. Trying to figure out what the 2 little buttons above and below the crown do. Help! It's not described at all in the manual that came with the watch.


The two buttons are the start and stop buttons for the chronograph function (that's a posh name for a stop watch).

If you want to see a full set of instructions, go to http://www.bulova.com/dynamic_repository/instructions/561.pdf m and you will see how your watch operates.

If you have any problems with the linjk, go to "Boluva.com" , select your region, and then click on the Boluva picture. When all the models appear, there is a small box in the top right of the table, put your model number in there and you will get a full description of your watch and there is a user instructions tab, click on this.

How to open the back of Kenneth Cole KC3434 watch to change the battery?


BASIC WATCH BATTERY CHANGE
Get a replacement battery for your watch. Some watches have the battery information stamped on the back plate. If yours doesn't, you'll have to wait until you've removed the old battery to see what kind of replacement watch battery you'll need.
Lay your watch face down on a non-scratching, non-skid surface. It may help to clamp the watch to the surface.
Remove the back from the watch. You might be able to pry it off with your fingernail, but you'll probably need a stiff, thin tool like a knife or screwdriver. You can also buy watch repair kits, which have the perfect tools for the job. Check the watch back for a small notch to insert your tool, but not all watches have these.
Remove the battery from the watch once the back is off. You might need to tip the watch over to let the battery fall out.
Insert the new watch battery into the proper space, first double-checking its size against the old battery to make sure it will fit. Press lightly into place.
Replace the back on your watch. Make sure you press firmly to get the back seated snugly.

If this doesnt work, then take to a local jeweler/watchmaker who is equipped with the right tools to assist you.

Best regards.
