Need to Replace back piece of my watch?


No. Most likely not. Try contacting the manufacturer and give them a description of your watch. They most likely wont be able to help you becuase you need the numbers off the back of the watch in order for them to identify the watch...

I bought a watch and we can't get it to work. We think the battery needs to be changed.


If you take a look at the back of the watch, look for screws holding on the back plate. If there are screws (usually, if they are there there is one in each corner -- unscrew them. If there are no screws in the back of the watch, look VERY carefully at where the backing for the watch connects to the front piece of the watch. There should be a small indentation somewhere along the rim -- use a knife or a small screwdriver in that groove and pop the watch backing off.
Once you have the back of the watch off, you will see the battery right there. Sometimes they just pop out (held in by the watch back) ... sometimes there is a small piece of metal holding it in (in which case you should try to rotate the metal piece off the battery -- don't bend it).
Once the battery is out, take it to a store that sells watch batteries and match the battery type exactly (a lot of watch batteries look the same, but you need an exact match). Put the new battery in, cover it with the metal tab (if there was one) by rotating the tab back over the battery like you found it. Put the watch backing back on (and replace the screws if there were any).
Hopefully, that will kick start your watch for you, and you should be all set :-)

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.

I cannot get the back of my Bulova watch back on. I popped it off to replace the battery however I cannot get the back back on!


Most Bulova Watches have PRESSURE TIGHT backs. Meaning the back is applied with EQUAL amounts of pressure to the entire back. There are two(2) solutions:

1. Take the Bulova watch to an experienced watch dealer/repaiman, to have the back applied, or

2. CAREFULLY MAKE SURE THE BACK IS IN THE PROPER POSITION, then WRAP THE ENTIRE watch with a soft, cushy clothe and with a pair of pliers, CAREFULLY apply pressure to the center of the back plate, until the back covers seats to the proper depth(closed), at the same time BEING VERY CAREFUL not to crack the watch crystal!!

I have a pocket watch i bought in paris but the battery ranout and i cant get the back off to get the battery out. what should i do?


Hi Josh, I do apologize for the inconvenience.Please try the below steps which should be helpful for you to remove the back of the watch and also replace the battery.
  1. Flip over your pocket watch. Remove the back of your watch. The back of watches are either screwed on by four small Phillips head screws (unscrew them) or the watch has a press inserted back (slide a thin knife blade under the edge of the back of the watch and pry it off).
    (OR)
    Find the small groove on the back of the watch right above the hinge,place the tip of the screwdriver (the small kind used for the screws in glasses) into the groove and gently pry off the back of the watch.
  2. Remove the circular watch battery out of the back of the watch.
  3. Take the battery to any department store or watch store and purchase a new replacement battery.
  4. Insert the new battery into the back of the watch.
  5. Screw on or push on the back of the watch. Set the watch to the correct time.
The above should be of help for you to have the battery on the pocket watch replaced and have the watch working once again.Best wishes for your effort and thank you for your time and patience.

    Trouble replacing rear analog watch cover


    mcdevito75 here, Replaceing that back cover can be a real pain. I think I have a tip for you. Place the cover only in the Frig. for about 15--30 minutes, the cold should shrink the cover just a bit so it may be easier to snap back onto the back of your watch.---------- OR, Make sure any cutout on the back of the watch is lined up with the stem, make sure any lip used to pry the back cover off the watch is also lined up with the case of the watch if need be. Place the back cover on the watch back, place the watch on a sturdy table, counter top etc. Crystal up, now with even,even pressure useing your palm, press down on the crystal, this should get the back cover to snap back on. Remeber even, even down ward pressure useing the flat palm of your hand on the crystal, press down slowly and the back cover should snap on. If not, visit a small watch repair shop in your area as they have a special pliers just for this job.

    How to open the back of Kenneth Cole KC3434 watch to change the battery?


    BASIC WATCH BATTERY CHANGE
    Get a replacement battery for your watch. Some watches have the battery information stamped on the back plate. If yours doesn't, you'll have to wait until you've removed the old battery to see what kind of replacement watch battery you'll need.
    Lay your watch face down on a non-scratching, non-skid surface. It may help to clamp the watch to the surface.
    Remove the back from the watch. You might be able to pry it off with your fingernail, but you'll probably need a stiff, thin tool like a knife or screwdriver. You can also buy watch repair kits, which have the perfect tools for the job. Check the watch back for a small notch to insert your tool, but not all watches have these.
    Remove the battery from the watch once the back is off. You might need to tip the watch over to let the battery fall out.
    Insert the new watch battery into the proper space, first double-checking its size against the old battery to make sure it will fit. Press lightly into place.
    Replace the back on your watch. Make sure you press firmly to get the back seated snugly.

    If this doesnt work, then take to a local jeweler/watchmaker who is equipped with the right tools to assist you.

    Best regards.

    Remove back fro wrist watch to change battery


    Generally Seiko uses a pop off back and a screw off back. The pop off back will be smooth and have no indication of how to come off. The screw off back will have several rectangular notches around the back where the prongs of a watch wrench fit.
    Before you begin you should know that this watch is water resistant and sealed to 100m. This means you do not have the equipment to reseal the watch and you void Seikos warranty. Also, the titanium models are more difficult to seal the back because of the hardness of the steal and the powder coating. They generally require that you replace the rear seal to make the watch water resistant again.
    To remove a pop off back use a watch knife and press it straight into the separation between the case and back. Do not use a sharp knife or widdle back and forth as this may damage the surface where the seal is or make burrs. Once you have driven the knife straight in you can move around the back repeating this until the back is completely off.
    To remove the screw off back place the watch wrench in the grooves at 10, 2, and 6 o clock. Make sure the prongs are pointed inward toward the wrench the same direction to avoid slipping and damaging the watch. Turn counter clockwise until the back is off.
    When taking the back off in either case you must be careful not to slip and scratch the coils or vital parts of the watch. These damage by touch and this will cause the watch to not work. Also, most chronographs require the watch be AC'd. The instructions for this are usually on the back lid of the watch or in the owners manual. If you make a mistake ACing the watch you can short it out or break the circuit board.
    Because of the complexity of this seemingly simple task i recommend going to a watch maker/ technician to avoid complications that could end up costing you much more in the long run.

    Canot get the back off my Indiglo watch to change the battery


    There is different proccedure for different watch to take out the back. Following are some of the proccedure to open the backcover of the watches:-
    1. Some plastic watch have four screw in the back, you just have to unscrew the screws and take out the back.

    2. Some of the watch have press back technology, which enables the watch to be water resistant and thus, the backcover of these watches are pressed very tight. You just need a back opener, and at the back if this back opener has to placed between the case and backcover and has to be tilted and backcover can be opened.
    (Backopener is a tool which is like thick & hard blade with sharp edges like knife but not very sharp; these edges can get easily between the gap of backcover and case. - this tool can be obtained from any watch tools store easily)
