Putting the back on a watch seems to be a frequent problem, possibly why most makers recommend that you let a jeweller replace a battery.

I suggest you try the following method:

1) Place you watch on a flat surface (on top of a cloth to protect the crystal)

2)place the back in position (check alignment of any seal)

3)place the thumbs of each hand together at one point on the rim and then (leaning firmly on both thumbs) work you way round the rim until the back clicks into position.

If there is a notch on the back which is made to make is easier to remove it, then I suggest that you start on the opposite side to this.

You may need several attempts to to get it right but keep trying.

If all else fails, a trip to your local watch shop should solve your problem.

Good luck!

The back cover does not snap in place after battery change

Look at the back and you may see a small groove in the bezel. This should be located over the winder before pressing the back into position.

In many cases the back is snapped down using a rolling technique (put the back in place and then push against a hard object like a kitchen worktop and as you push, roll the edge round until it snaps into place) but in some cases with particulaly stubborn cases you will need to use a specially designed back press (available on eBay quite cheap).

Watchmakers will usually use professional equipment to get the job done.

How do I change battery on my gametime watch? how do I remove back casing?

My GAMETIME watch has a back which just pops off. Once in the battery compartment, you will see plastic disk, with a molded frame. This just simply pulls off, and is not secured in place. You should not have to pry it.

Once this is removed, the battery is revealed. My model takes a SR626SW. To remove the cell, use something small to get under the exposed side. You should be able to pop the cell out without much force.

Before you replace the battery take this opportunity to clean the rim where the backing was. Carefully install the new cell, and replace the cover.

I have a ladies timex indiglo watch that I was able to get the back off and replace the battery but now I can NOT get the back on again. It doesnt seem to have any grooves on it. It seems as if it would...

I have an old Timberland Indiglo watch in which I had the same problem. I folded up a paper towel for padding and I used two sets of pliers, one to hold one side of the watch while I used the other set of pliers to snap the back cover closed. It took two seconds to do.

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

The back cover for my watch popped off when I dropped it. How do I get it to "snap" back on?

I used to work with jewelry. !!BEWARE!!
This method is for face crystals that are completely FLAT! Any convex crystal will shatter without proper tools!!!
Any method of putting the watch cover back with the watch remotely near water/moisture is a mistake. The watch will rust sooner or later.
So if you don't want to pay a jeweler five dollars to put it back on, this is what I did to my sister's watch cover when I could not snap it back.
I took my cushy 1/4 inch mousepad to a vise. You may not have a vise. If you don't, stop reading now and take the watch to a jeweler --one who replaces batteries.
Inside the vise jaws, I used a 5 inch square piece of wood, then my cushy mousepad, then the watch facing the pad, then the back in the right place for restoring.
!!!!NOTE: Not having the back in the right place will smash the stem and damage can/will result!!!
To push the back on, I picked a 12 point socket out of my socket set that was the same DIAMETER as the watch back and placed it CENTERED behind the back.
Recapping, inside vise:
  • small board
  • cushy mousepad (to avoid scarring and crystal breakage
  • watch crystal facing mousepad
  • watch back in correct position
  • ratchet socket the same diameter as watch back centered behind cover
Slowly I positioned all these items with minimal pressure. Then when I was sure that I was ready (and prepared to hear the crystal break) I put as little pressure closing the vise that I could. The I heard a snap, and to my relief, it was the back going in!

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO WHAT I DID. People with broken watch crystals become very IRATE when "all it needed was a battery"!

A screw clamp would also give adequate pressure. Any unsupported direct pressure over the crystal will shatter it!

Hope this helped.
Good luck!!!!

Sorry, but your hands (especialy fingers) aren't strong enough. Nothing personal- just confirming the fact. My hands can handle 50 ATM casebacks, but I would say this is more expierence than strength.
OK, back to business: align the winder groove first and make sure this side of caseback sits in properly in case. Then use your thumbs to push the opposite side of caseback in, supporting the watch by your palms and knees. Do not try to push the caseback in bit by bit going all around the caseback. This sort of action will never work.
So, align the groove, support your palms by the knee(s) and push the opposite (to the groove) side of the caseback in to the watch case by one, but strong attempt with your thumbs. It should snap in.
If this doesn't work, you will need to ask the watchmaker to close the watch.
NB: Watchmakers are using specialized press for closing watch cases wich do not require any strength at all.

Rate me, please.

You will need a special tool to pop it back on. Any other way will result in the crystal breaking.

Cannot re-attach back cover - WR30M

Yeah, I had this problem on a Timex Indiglo, but didn't have it on the cheap $20 watches in drug stores and discount stores. Timex puts a tighter cap on the back, probably for quality reasons, and you cannot push it together by your thumb. --This solution should work for about anyone: 1. Put the watch face down on a hard surface, but protect the crystal from scratching by putting a piece of cardboard or cloth between them. 2. Align the back and put a socket from a socket set on it that is somewhat smaller than the back cap. 3. Tap the socket with a hammer. You don't need to tap hard--even less than what would start a small nail. It may take only one tap--getting it aligned right is the key.

Removing the back to change battery

The plastic wrist band doesn't have to be cut away. You need to dislodge the spring-loaded end of the pin from the hole in the plastic with the blade of a sharp thin knife.

The you proceed to lift one of the 4 snaps to open the cover. The battery is under a white translucent inside cover.

The original battery was Sony SR621SW.

Pay attention to the rubber seal ring when putting the watch back together.
