Have a look at the lid. there should be a small notch in it which has to be lined up with the inner watch piece. make sure they are lined up properly. the lid is a press fit so some force will need to be used but carefully

I recently purchased a GWR Pocket Watch from York Railway Museum. I can open the watch to see the time, but cannot see how to open the back to adjust it (it is currently on BST) or to change the batt


All watches open from the back. Closely inspect the back cover and find the depression in the edge that a thin knife edge can pry open the cover. Search carefully and pry open but do not force. Most watches are very tightly sealed to prevent moisture from entering, however, if you can pry open at some point along the back cap, look for a thin rubber gasket. If there is not a gasket no worries. Use a C-clamp or hand-vise to clamp the back cover tightly. Be sure to allow the stem slot, adequate clearance so you don't damage it. Look for a "dip" in the case back and locate stem. Hold in place with tape while you squeeze the back into place using the c clamp or vise slowly.

How to open the back


1

Determine the type of case back on the watch. Set the watch face down on a soft surface and look at the back. If it has slots, it is defined as a screw-back case. If it is smooth, it is defined as a snap-back case.
2

To open a screw-back watch, use the metal blade of a standard screwdriver to turn the slots counterclockwise. A case-back wrench, which can be purchased at watch-repair stores, can also be used. Set the metal tips of the wrench into the back's slots and turn it counterclockwise to open.
3

For a snap back case, place the metal blade of a standard screwdriver in the indent between the watch and the case. Gently apply pressure to lift the case up and off of the watch.
4

Close the case back by setting it back onto the watch. For snap-back cases, line up the indent on the side of the watch and press gently on the case back to close. For screw-back cases, use the screwdriver blade or case-back wrench to turn the slots clockwise, thereby closing the case shut.

How do I remove the back plate to access the battery?


some watch use a back cover vacuum press to close it.
at the back metal cover, look for a small grove around the cover, using a special knife for watch, gently press upward to open.

BUT wait before you do it, note that this cover is easy to open but hard to close. you will need a special tool a press for this.

my advice better to see a rep for this.

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.

My battery wend dead. the store will not open the back of the watch to change it. how do i open the back to change the battery?


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
Most Skagen watches have a snap-in, snap-out back. You will need a case back opening tool ($3 to $14) or a slotted jeweler's screw driver or knife blade to pry it open. Do this over a counter or towel in case the battery pops out. Examine and make note of which side of the battery is up. Get the number off the battery, better yet take it with you to Wal-Mart, Radio Shack or anywere else they sell batteries. Buy a replacement, install it, and try to reinstall the back. Good luck!
Do not try placing your Skagen watch face down on a soft towel, on a hard surface, and then then try to mussle in the back, or tap it with a mall or hammer. You very likely will break the crystal.
Without a Case Closing Plier ($15 to $20) or a Case Closing Press ($15 to $50) you will not be able to get the back to snap back in. You could try a conventional vise and size some vinyl or plastic washer to to fit the bezel and protect the crystal/face of the watch, and some flat vinyl/plastic that covers the back of the watch. Align the front and back plastic pieces with the back, carefully insert it in your vice, and tighten until the back snaps in. This could be fatal if you mess up!
A simpler solution is to take your watch to a place that specializes in selling and servicing a variety of watches, hopefull Skagens, maybe a jewelry store, and have them replace the battery. They should have the closing tool and you can expect to pay $10 to $15 for the battery and installation.
If you like Skagens, you can go on-line and find the appropriate tools to do this. Or, pay the watch store. Many Skagens use up batteries at the rate of every 10 to 15 months. Also, you can look up Skagen on line and see if they will service your watch. They are located in Reno, Nevada

Casio says open


The open code is saying that your case isn't closed properly. Without seeing it, it's hard to tell if you opened/closed the case correctly. If you believe it is closed properly, look in your user manual and see if there is a master reset button and try that. Did you change the battery yourself or did you have a jeweler do it?

Is it possible to change the battery on the Technomarine 10900 at home (with the proper tools) or do I need to get it to a repair centre?


It is possible. Open the watch case back, memorize all the writings on watch battery as well as how the battery is positioned (+ and -). Buy exactly the same battery, replace it and close the case back. To be sure case back is closed as tight as it was, draw fine line across the case and case back with non-permanent marker. This will help you align when closing the watch and you can clean it off later. Rate me, please.

I can't close the back of my Timex watch after changing the battery.


Common issue! Easy to open and hard to close! Just take it to a reputable watch repair business and they can use a press to close it! Needs equal pressure around entire case back to close!
