Mcdevito75 here, Double check case and back cover line up, Clean mateing surfaces with a little alcohol and a Q"tip. The back cover may have gotton very warm and is now just a little to big for the case, temperature could cause the back cover to be so very slightly too large to fit the case, make sure both the case and back cover are the same temperature. I"ve does this myself, place the cover in the frig. for about an hour, this will make the back cover just a bit smaller than the case then try to re-fit the cover onto the case. If this fails, look for a small watch repair shop in your area. Just the cover in the fig. (lower section) not the case, the cold will shrink the cover and possibly give a better fit to the case.

I have changed the battery but cannot get the back panel fixes on to the watch. Tried pressing hard but the panel doesn't fit

The case-backs on some snap-fit watches are very snug in order to increase the sweat and water resistance of the watch. That means that you may need a case press in order to get the back put in place again.
Before you go heading off for a case press, check a few things first. Look carefully at the case back. On some cases, there's a cut-out for the set stem. Is that properly lined up with the stem? If not, that will prevent that case from closing. Next, look for evidence of a thin neoprene gasket that might be either around the case back or lying between the case and the case back. Is that properly in place? Even a little bit of gasket getting in the way will make it really hard to close the case back.
However, I'm guessing that you need a case vise--or that you'll have to give someone with the proper wrench a few dollars to close up your watch. Putting the watch in a regular vise and squeezing tight is a very fast way to wreck your watch--there's a very high risk of cracking the crystal, deforming the case back, or even putting too much pressure on the interior movement and damaging it. A case press puts pressure only on the outside of the crystal bezel and on the edges of the case back--flexing the parts that need to get flexed, but sparing the rest of the watch from that kind of pressure.

Case closing vises come in two basic flavors. The first, which I prefer, is a little tool that sits on a table. You fit in appropriate nylon collars, put the watch between them, and push down with a lever. The second, which I find doesn't always work, looks more like a set of salad tongs with a strange end (actually, parallel pressure points). With this tool, you also add appropriate inserts, then squeeze the handles together like a pair of scissors. It doesn't exert as much pressure as the table-mounted tool, but it's often enough.

Jewelry supply stores carry these case presses, but if you are near a Harbor Freight hardware, store, they also carry inexpensive versions of both of these case presses for a very reasonable $10-15. However, you can usually find someone to close your watch up for you for even less.

Good luck!

I cannot open rhe back of a 3950 lady watch DKNY

most of this kind of watch can be open by a skilled repair man using a knife, you can try it. but the hard part is not opening it but closing in the cover. it is close by pressing in at the sides of the watch. Better to see a repair man for this.

I bought a Versace DV One White Ceramic watch. The bezel cracked and the Versace service center wanted $500 to fix. I think this is outrageous because I purchased the watch in May 2010 and the bezel is...

Thanks for contacting FixYa.
I am sorry. The only place to get a Versace replacment is thru Versace.
My only other advice would be to do an internet search and look for a less expensive replacement of the watch itself.
I know thats not what you want to hear. Best regards.

The second hand on my versace watch moves every 5 seconds,instead of every second.could this just be a low battery or something more serious? 63QC A370173 is the number on the back of the watch case

It sounds like the battery low you suggested.

Take the watch to a Versace service center ( there can be difficulties if you try to replace it yourself or get a local jeweler to replace the battery- it is a comon complaint that watches fail after battery renewal!).

Setting time on a Versace elissi watch

An interesting problem!

Looking at the pictures (only ones from the front are available on their web site), it would appear that the only features that go inside the case are the strap attachment lugs. Could one of them pullout and turn?

If all else fails, go to "" and go to the bottom of the page. Put your cursor over "watches and fine jewelery" and a dropdown menu appears. Select customer care or stores and find out where you can get advice.

Seal for Versace watch - new battery - watch does not go

Could be a number of issues but if the watch was closed correctly and hasnt gotten wet then it probably needs a dab of watch oil and a spin.

Everyday we get this issue. Customer gets new battery but the hands dont move. Its possible that its running electronically but not mechanically. As the watch ages the watch oil begins to lose viscosity and thickens and there is no torque in a watch movement so the hands wont move! So by adding a drop of oil and putting it on a clyclonic machine to force the hands to spin with a magnetic field it releases the stuck hands and the oil is released into the movement to lubricate the wheels! :-)

So, you should find a reputable watch repair business and have them recheck the battery and if they have a cyclonic machine then they should be able to see if the watch has that "beat" that comes off of the magnetic rotor! :-) If the o-ring or seal has been damaged and moisture has gotten into the watch then they can dry it out under a warm light with the case back removed and reoil the movement! Hopefully this will help!

You can also take it back to where it was purchased and they might be able to assist you with repair as well.

How to Open a Gucci watch

Most watches are either screwed on and typically have a series of small notches around the circumference of the case back. A special tool is generally called for. Otherwise they are "snap back" . These are simply pressed on. To remove you can carefully use a regular knife in the absence of a "case knife". There is usually a small gap/groove/notch area to insert the balde and lift the back off.
