I have a cat watch and mines a screw-back watch therefore you need an instrument like on the link below to open it:

Thank you for contacting FixYa.
I am not familiar with Cat watches, but here are instructions for basic watch backs:
Locate a very small tab (or recessed area) on the edge of the back cover. This is the access point for removal. You can find this sometimes by running your fingernail around the back rim, as this tab or indentation can be hard to see.

  • 2Pull out the stem, which releases the back on some watches.
  • 3Get a small flathead screwdriver it needs to be a thin inflexible tip. Use a kitchen knife as a last resort. Wrap the hand you are holding the watch with in a towel or protect your hand in some manner so you don't injure yourself if the screwdriver/knife slips.
  • 4Very carefully slide the blade under the tiny metal protrusion on the back cover (or across the length of the recessed area, depending on which type of cover your watch has). Do not attempt to insert the point of the knife. Use the length of the blade.
  • 5Get under the tab or recessed area and gently but firmly turn the blade upward, popping the cover off.
  • 6When you replace the cover, make sure you line up the stem slot on the cover with the stem of the watch.

    I have a geneve quartz 14k gold mans watch dont no how to take apart to put battery in.


    mcdevito75 here, Battery usually lasts 1 year and longer, even if you did change the battery yourself now, you"d forget for a year or even longer next time battery needeed to be changed, I know I did. Add to this you can easily destroy your watch with in-correct handleing. BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for this battery change $10--$15.00 and peace of mind.

    I need to replace the battery in my parsifal watch. The battery was replaced last year so maybe there is something wrong with the watch? What type of battery does this watch require as I'd like to...


    Let me be honest with you. Dont. If you dont know what your are doing to change a battery, you will do more harm then good. And once that happens, you will lose your RW warranty.
    My best solution is to take to a certified local RW dealer and if you dont know who is in your area, check this link:

    Changing the battery


    Take it to a reputable watch repair shop and let them change it for you! If you try to change that battery yourself and the crystal breaks or something goes wrong then you will have to send it back to Tissot for repair! They dont sell parts!
