SOURCE: how do you open Vintage Men's Omega Deville Wrist Watch?

That means you have a monoblock case and this can be opened using a special pump and forcing the air into the case through the tube (where the stem is inserted into the movement).
When forced in, the air pressure builds up in the case and lifts up the watch glass.
It is quite tricky operation and need skilled watchmakers hands and tools.
When I first used this metod, air pressure was so strong, that it shot out the glass from the case together with the movement and all the watch bits flew over the place, ending with damaged fingers, scratched dial and broken balance staff, so, I had to buy them and replace.
My advice is to go to your nearest watch repair shop and ask for help, as you wont be able to open your watch without proper tools or you will damage or brake watch glass.

Don't forget to rate, please.

How to replace the battery of a emporio armani ar0106

Do you have a photo of the watch case back? It's either going to unscrew in which case you may need a special took, or it might be a snap-back case in which case it can be pried off.
With the case back off, its best to use a magnifying glass or eye loupe to look closely and determine how the battery is held in place. It's usually not to difficult to discern how to remove it (if you send me the movement number I can guide more specifically. It's important to replace it with the same battery and it will be numbered for identification.

How do u open back to fix an fossil black 5 atm fs-4351 hand watch

Jerry, If its smooth on the back cover, you have to pry it off carefully. Get a magnifying glass and look around the cover edge, there should be a small under cut. Pry at this point with a penknife blade or similar. If the cover has 6 or 8 small indentations in it then it likely unscrews but you may still need to see a watch shop for the tool to unscrew it.
Fossil watches have a 2 year warranty so if its inside this, take it to a dealer.

I have a F ossil Arkitekt (fs-2990) that is a several years old. I removed the back and the battery to change out the battery and noticed that one of the numeral bars on the face has dislodged itself. in...

The knob that adjusts the time is called the crown, and it will have a stem attached to it. You will need to remove crown and stem together.
If it's a screw-down crown, unscrew it.
Examine the watch mechanism very carefully while pulling out the crown (as if you were adjusting the time) and pushing it back, What you are looking for is basically anything that moves. If you do see parts of the mechanism move, look very carefully around that area for an arrow mark impressed in the metal pointing to a small dip in one of the metal parts.Often, this is on a tiny lever but not all manufacturers bother with the arrow.
Ensure that the crown is pushed back to it's normal position. Put a tiny amount of pressure on the dip (a needle is ideal for this), and carefully attempt to pull out crown and stem.You may need to apply slightly more pressure to get a result, but please take care not to press too hard or you may damage the mechanism.
Hopefully, that should sort it out. To refix the numeral bar, I'd recommend super glue - but you only need a tiny, tiny amount. Apply it with the tip of a needle and you shouldn't go far wrong.
Once you're looking at reassembly, you should be able to reinsert the crown and stem without depressing the dip but do it gently and don't force it - it may need a slight turn to relocate properly before it slides back in.

I hope this was easy to follow - get back in touch if you get stuck.

Want to change 377 battery in Embassy Men's Watch but don't know if back snaps off or screws off......seems like it should be more obvious than this. Can anyone help?

Casebacks can be attached in several ways. The most common is a snap-on type. The back will be smooth and if you look closely around the edge you should see a small slot somewhere along the edge where you can insert the edge of a caseback removal knife - it looks like a small oyster shucking knife - to pry the case open. The caseback me be very difficult to snap back on and require the use of a caseback plier or pressing tool. If the caseback is held in place by screws, you can carefully unscrew them using a good quality jeweler's screwdriver. the real cheap mini-divers will bend and scratch the watch. Another common method is a screwdown caseback. You will see indentaitions on the edge of the case back to recieve a caseback wrench to unscrew it. If your watch is water resistant, don't forget to replace the gasket as they are only good once. Most watch shops will replace the battery while you wait for about $8 so that may be your best bet.

How to remove the back cover of the Swiss Army Victornoix pocket watch so to replace the battery?

The back will either have a small slot on one edge to pry it off or indentations around the perimeter for a case wrench to unscrew it. Specialized tools are used to avoid scratching the case. You best bet is to take it to a watch shop and let them do it. Most places charge between $3 - $8 to properly do it without damaging the case and they should also change the gasket to maintain water resistance if so equipped. Once you have it open you risk damaging the movement as you change the battery. It's not that it's a tricky procedure but you can easily damage something that will cost a LOT more than $8 to fix if you don't have experience.

How do you change the battery on an ebel watch

Unscrew or pry off the case back. Remove the metal strap holding the battery in place. Sometimes you have to remove screw in the metal strap. Look on the battery for the type and order by that number. Put back in with fingers or plastic tweezers. Do not use metal tweezers as it will short the battery.

Armitron y121e watch

If your Armitron has a set of 6 inset notches around the back, as does my Y121E 20/1791F Armitron Diamond, that's a screw-back case that does _not_ pop off or pry off. You'll need a case opener tool, which is basically a small tool with adjustable-gap jaws that fit into two notches on opposite sides of the case and let you unscrew it. Wal-Mart sells this tool for about five bucks, and it'll pay for itself soon enough, as many watches have screw backs, and this will fit most anything you find. Head for their jewelry department and you should find the tool hanging up with the replacement watchbands and batteries.

The case is probably screwed down fairly tight against its O-ring seal, so make sure the tool is seated properly in the case notches, and turn it slowly and firmly counterclockwise to work it loose.

If your watch is like mine, it'll take a #377 cell, but wait until you've opened yours up to be sure.
