Take it to a jewlers shop, they have a special press to smash those SOBs back on. Its almost impossible to do it without a press, and you risk damage to the case/crystal, go on and spend a few dollars, its good for the economy too.

I cannot replace the back of a timex 1854 watch. I replaced the battery but the back won't click on


I used a four inch "C" clamp and a large washer about diameter of back, to get my Timex back snapped back on. Place the watch face side down on a flat surface cushioning the crystal with soft rubbery material like shelf liner or anti skid material used under rugs (the kind used to also line tool chest drawers - black). Place the washer between the watch back plate and the "C" clamp screw plate. Align the back plate of the Timex as evenly on watch as possible while gradually tightening the "C" clamp. Keep turning down the "C" clamp ever so slowly until you hear the plate snap back on.

I have a ladies timex indiglo watch that I was able to get the back off and replace the battery but now I can NOT get the back on again. It doesnt seem to have any grooves on it. It seems as if it would...


I have an old Timberland Indiglo watch in which I had the same problem. I folded up a paper towel for padding and I used two sets of pliers, one to hold one side of the watch while I used the other set of pliers to snap the back cover closed. It took two seconds to do.

The back doesn't seem to want to snap back in


Try a very small dab of a very light lubrican on the sealing edges.

If you haven't already tried it, press the edge of the watch back using two fingers and move them appart until they meet again.

Season with a lot of parience... good luck!

Try removing the rubber washer or the black band on the cover then try snapping it back on. I removed the washer and placed it on the back of the watch before I placed the cover on and it just snapped back on.

I had the same problem. The thing that was most frustrating is that I have a standard tool to remove and install screw in watch backs, but Timex in its infintie wisdom, decided to make this model withta snap-in back.

I tired usinga a set of adjustable locking pliers with rubber claw covers. I tried holding one side with finger and thumb while using the pliers on the other to no avail.

robatbath's answer about jewelers having a special press led me to a solution. I just happened to have (2) 1.25" steel washers with 1/4 inch holes. I placed one on the face and one on the back. This way I could use the locking pliers (with rubber covers on) to press in the center of each side. The back snapped in fine. You can get washers and pliers at any hardware store.

First, find the arrow on the back and use a small screwdriver or knife to pry open the back at that point. Replace battery and then replace back wiht the arrow pointing to the middle of the band as orginially found. Third, press the back on the left side and then use a rubber mallet to strike the "raised" side down and it'll snap in place. Alternative method -- use a cushioned screw clamp to compress the back.

izzi, I assume you have a snap back back that won't snap back in place. I had the same problem with a Timex EXpedition. The solution should be similar. See my post" http://www.fixya.com/support/t190459-watch_battery_replacement and also the site I reference there. http://www.online-batteries.co.uk/whichbattery.shtml Good luck, Richard
