Take the watch to a jeweller. They should have all the batteries and seals and tools necessary for the job, and it rarely takes long or costs that much. you could probably manage yourself, but getting the seals especially is easiest through a jeweller anyway. Most likely reason for any watch to be not working is the battery, the next would be moisture inside - normally visible round the screen/face. always worth replacing the battery to see, unless the watch cost less than the battery, which it didn't. Hope this helps :)

It will either unscrew if evenly spaced notches exist around the cap's edge if threaded or snap off if a small cavity exists beneath the cap's edge to insert a jeweler's screwdriver.

Water inside


you need to open the back plate of your watch and sit the watch in a dry warm area for atleast 24 hours to allow the water to evaporate and dry out..to open the back If the back plate of your watch is smooth around the edges, then it will pry off. Look carefully around the edges for a spot with a small gap, which it may or may not have. Prying gently with the tip of a sharp knife, usually with a light twisting motion, will pop the back plate off the watch. It simply presses back into place with moderate-to-light pressure. IF the back plate has notches around the edge, it need to be unscrewed from the back. Harbor Freight has a cheap tool to engage these notches and turn the plate, but I've had good luck simply using the tips of a needle-nose pliers to engage these notches and unscrew the plate.

How do i open back cover


Some watches have a press on stainless steel back. You can tell that it is this type if there are no indented notches around the back for a spanner tool, and if there is a small indention on one of the edges up near the band that will take a prying tool to unsnap the wedge fit. The other types with the 6-10 indentions around the back are generally for water proof watches. this takes a jewelers spanner to unscrew the back being mindful of a sealing gasket around the screw threads, if this gets broken or elongated, you must put a new one in to seal the watch.

How do you remove the back to replace the battery. Does the back unscrew or does it snap off.


if its flat with no notches then you can use a pocket knife or small flat blade and look for a notch underneath the case back, there is usually an indentation where the case remover can slip in . Then you have to carefully force the knife inside and wiggle it up and down till it pops off. Be very careful you can cut yourself doing this or even damage the watch by slipping the blade inside and ruining the movement.

If it has a screw back you would see notches on the back of the case going around the diameter usually 6 or so notches. There you would need a special watch opener tool that fits into those holes and would unscrew it.

I would recommend taking it to a fast fix or batteryplus for about 7 dollars you can have them replace it. That way you can prevent yourself from ruining your watch or hurting yourself.

if you do open the watch up be careful not to touch the copper coil if you scratch that you will ruin the movement and need that replaced. if its flat with no notches then you can use a pocket knife or small flat blade and look for a notch underneath the case back, there is usually an indentation where the case remover can slip in .

Cannot open clasp prestige replica rolex


1)Unscrew the crown until it pops out, the same way you would unscrew the crown to change the time on the watch.
2)Place the watch case opener in the notches around the outside of the back of the watch case. You have to use a watch case opener made for Rolex watches to open the watch. Once the case opener is in place, twist it and the back will pop open.
3)Use a mini screwdriver to loosen a tiny screw on the inside of the watch located near the stem. You do not need to unscrew fully--only loosen it.
4)Pull the crown straight out. The crown and stem should come out easily.
To open the back of the watch
1)Purchase a Rolex watch back opener set, if you do not already have one. This set is able to open and close any size of Rolex case.
2)Match the size of your Rolex case with the same size of grooved metal die from the tool set.
3)Put the metal die on the grooves on the back of the watch case.
4)Turn the die to remove the case.
5)Remove the rubber gasket.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

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.

CH2301 battery replacement. How open compartment?


There are 2 ways that Fossil closes the caseback on their watches.  It is either a 'pop-off' caseback that you will need to pry off.  Get something very small and thin, such as a small flathead screwdriver.  There is usually a small groove somewhere around the edge of the caseback where you can insert the blade.  The other type screws off.  You will need to unscrew the caseback.  You can determine if it screws off by looking for 6 notches around the outside edge of the caseback.  You will use these notches to insert a tool to rotate the caseback off.  Without a specialized tool called a watch-wrench, I suggest bringing it to a store such as Precision Time or Tourneau.

Compass dial turned opposite direction


you might be able to reverse the poles back to normal with a magnet but be careful not to scratch face or get it closer than you need to to the insides of the watch.

Armitron y121e watch


If your Armitron has a set of 6 inset notches around the back, as does my Y121E 20/1791F Armitron Diamond, that's a screw-back case that does _not_ pop off or pry off. You'll need a case opener tool, which is basically a small tool with adjustable-gap jaws that fit into two notches on opposite sides of the case and let you unscrew it. Wal-Mart sells this tool for about five bucks, and it'll pay for itself soon enough, as many watches have screw backs, and this will fit most anything you find. Head for their jewelry department and you should find the tool hanging up with the replacement watchbands and batteries.

The case is probably screwed down fairly tight against its O-ring seal, so make sure the tool is seated properly in the case notches, and turn it slowly and firmly counterclockwise to work it loose.

If your watch is like mine, it'll take a #377 cell, but wait until you've opened yours up to be sure.
