Question about Calvin Klein Bold Metal K2237120 Watch for Men
Getting this done can be quite tricky as the part in the watch are a bit delicate and also you would not want to break the glass in front. Before trying to force the cover back on you should first check the inner components and make sure that they are all in their respective places as a shift in anyone could affect the back cover from closing. If all the components are properly fitted and the cover is placed at the proper angle then you should not have a problem closing the back cover back. Ensure that the indented part on the cover lining is aligned with the rod which is used for adjusting the time on the watch. Feel free to request any further assistance. Hope this solution has been helpful?

By "watch-maker's vise" do you mean one of those adjustable wrenches with three pins that are used for removing a screw-on back? It's really a misnomer - they should call these wrenches, as they are useful for unscrewing or tightening the back, but aren't very useful for holding the watch. So, now I am wondering if you have a screw-on back or a snap-on back. If it is a screw-on back, put the wrench aside and get the back started by hand (assuming you haven't already cross-threaded it.) Carefully, with a very gentle touch, turn the back counter-clockwise (as if you were removing it) until you feel the soft pop that occurs when the ends of the mating threads pass by each other. At that point gently turn the back to the right to engage the threads. If that goes smoothly, use the wrench to tighten.
On the other hand, if you have a snap-on back, just use your thumbs to press the back on. But I have always found that very difficult, so I do the following - sorry, some hobby tools required--- Use an adjustable diameter hole cutter in a drill press to cut a hole in a scrap of wood where the hole is just larger than the crystal of your watch. Lay the watch face down on this hole. Open the drill chuck all of the way so that the three jaws of the chuck are withdrawn completely. With the drill turned off, use it as an arbor press to evenly snap the back of the watch into place. If it's a large watch and a small drill press, then the back of the watch will have a significantly larger diameter than the face of the drill chuck. In this case use another piece of scrap wood (hardwood or metal is best) between the drill chuck and the back of the watch. This works for me every time.
Good luck, Al K

I'm not an expert at the watches but just an idea. Have you tried counterclockwise turn?
In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.
Thanks and regards
