How to open rado coupole
Thank you for contacting FixYa.<br />
If you are opening up the back for the battery, I would HIGHLY recommend that you have done by a certified Rado Service center.<br />
They will test for watertightness, seal it properly, change o ring and crown. <br />
If you still want to risk doing yourself then follow these instructions:<br />
<b>Locate a very small tab (or recessed area) on the edge of the back cover</b>. 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. <br />
2<b><b class="ecxwhb">Pull out the stem, which releases the back on some watches</b>.</b>
3<b><b class="ecxwhb">Get a small flathead screwdriver</b> it needs to be a thin inflexible tip</b>. 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.
4<i><b class="ecxwhb">Very carefully</i> 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)</b>. Do not attempt to insert the point of the knife. Use the length of the blade.
5<b><b class="ecxwhb">Get under the tab or recessed area</b> and gently but firmly turn the blade upward, popping the cover off</b>.
<li class="ecxsteps_li ecxfinal_li">
6<b><b class="ecxwhb">When you replace the cover, make sure you line up the stem slot on the cover with the stem of the watch</b>.</b></li>
