You will probably need a watch press to get the back on. Call around at your local jewelers as they will have one if they carry watches.

Can't get the back on


Set the watch face down on a soft cloth and place the case back on the watch. Line the small indent up on the case back with the indent in the side of the watch, and push down on the case back with both thumbs with even pressure. The cover should snap back into place.

I have an Relic Fossil Brand Watch and I took the back Cover Off and I cant Get the **** thing back on.. how do you put the back of it back on?...


try to press on as much around as you can then whatever area is still showing a gap gently push it on a corner of a desk ( be careful of crystal), but it sounds like you may not be able to get it back on. Watches need even pressure all the way around to put the backs back on this is done with a watch press. The watch press cups the crystal and applies even pressure to snap the back on. It sounds like you will have to go to your local jeweler. We use the watch press to put on about 75 percent of our backs! Fossil is especially known for difficult backs and crystals that easily break! although they are a nice looking watch!! hope this helps!!

Can't get the back of my watch back on


mcdevito75 here, Your Timex watch back cover should have a cutout in the back cover for the stem (winder) make sure this cutout is lined up with the stem the stem lies in this cutout, once you have it lined up, lay the watch down, crystal (glass up on a sturdy surface, Table, counter top etc. Now, with your palm and even, even pressure on the crystal (glass) simply press down, you"ll hare it click shut. Don"t force anything and if you still can"t get your watch back cover on, look for a small watch repair shop in your arear. It may take a special pair of pliers to get the cover on. Most Timex back covers are kind of hard to get back on.

I took the back off a watch to change the battery now i cant get the back on


mcdevito75 here Look very closely at the back cover for anything that will line up with the case, as an example a little cut out in the cover for the stem (winder) and or any small indent in the cover and case or tab on the cover, line everything up carefully then place the watch face up on a sturdy table, countertop and with the palm of your hand press down evenly, this should snap the cover back on. If Not, see a small watch repair shop in your area as they will use a special pliers to clos the back cover.

I just need to replace the battery, how do I open the back, does it twist off or snap off.


Some are twist or snap off..We get so many that are pressure back cover.Sometimes it can be done with a knife and there is a small hindge where you can snap it off with a knife so easy but the problem will be putting it back on because you have to snap it back on with pressure and it can only be done with a machine.If it is a twist that should be easy,all you do is put both thumbs around the lid and press and twist to the right and it should open.This lid should close tight after you put the battery or the water will get into the watch and damage the watch mechanism.

TOOK WATCH COVER OFF TO REPLACE BATTERY ON A ACQUA AND CANNOT GET COVER BACK ON


make sure the battery placement compliments the locking spring or wire allowing the back cover to go on. start by applying pressure to one side of the lid and gradually make your way around the perimeter applying steady pressure as you go. afew snapping sounds let you know progress is being made. good luck!

I can't get the cover to close on a timex watch.


I used to work with jewelry. !!BEWARE!!
This method is for face crystals that are completely FLAT! Any convex crystal will shatter without proper tools!!!
Any method of putting the watch cover back with the watch remotely near water/moisture is a mistake. The watch will rust sooner or later.
So if you don't want to pay a jeweler five dollars to put it back on, this is what I did to my sister's watch cover when I could not snap it back.
I took my cushy 1/4 inch mousepad to a vise. You may not have a vise. If you don't, stop reading now and take the watch to a jeweler --one who replaces batteries.
Inside the vise jaws, I used a 5 inch square piece of wood, then my cushy mousepad, then the watch facing the pad, then the back in the right place for restoring.
!!!!NOTE: Not having the back in the right place will smash the stem and damage can/will result!!!
To push the back on, I picked a 12 point socket out of my socket set that was the same DIAMETER as the watch back and placed it CENTERED behind the back.
Recapping, inside vise:
  • small board
  • cushy mousepad (to avoid scarring and crystal breakage
  • watch crystal facing mousepad
  • watch back in correct position
  • ratchet socket the same diameter as watch back centered behind cover
Slowly I positioned all these items with minimal pressure. Then when I was sure that I was ready (and prepared to hear the crystal break) I put as little pressure closing the vise that I could. The I heard a snap, and to my relief, it was the back going in!

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO WHAT I DID. People with broken watch crystals become very IRATE when "all it needed was a battery"!

A screw clamp would also give adequate pressure. Any unsupported direct pressure over the crystal will shatter it!

Hope this helped.
Good luck!!!!

Cannot get the cover back on Fossil watch after changing battery


First open your bracelet. Then align groove in caseback with crown and press that side lightly into the case. Then using both hands(one from dial side, another from back) press as strong as you can.
If this do not work:
Get mens leather belt and place it on flat surface(table top). Lay the watch face down on that belt. Again adjust caseback as before and using your weight push caseback down with both hands.
NEVER use hammer or similar.
If none of these works- go and see your nearest watchmaker.

Gruen rectangler watch


I don't see any numbers in your post, and I am sorry to say that I would highly suggest trying a different jewelry store. Gruen is not a difficult brand to work with and you should be able to find someone cheaper then that. At my old store we charged $6 Have you tried JC Penny? or Wal-Mart? Just ask if they are someone who has done a few watches (not just someone covering the jewelry department while the regular person is on lunch or break). If you really want to do it your self, post the type and model numbers you should see on the back of the watch, for further help.
