    i got the back off fine. great advcie, but unfortunately, once I fixed the little piece that fell off, the other ones started falling off! (they are the small metal rings that accent the date, day, and 24hr clock). Then the hour hand and second hand fell off!! I got everything back together except for the second hand. I just cant get it back on.

Yoy have to take off the back. Does the back have notches(5 of them) around the back cover? If it does take a pair of needle nose pliers and turn counter-clockwise to loosen. If the back has no notches then there must be a little lip where you have to pry off the back. Look carefully sometimes it is hard to see.. You have to use a sharp strong knife, like a swiss army knife, something that is sharp but has a little meat to it. Once the back is off,look at the movement. Now pull out the crown ( the part for setting the watch) and as you do, look for a metal piece that is in the movement (probibly to the derect left if you are right handed) that has a little dimple and moves as you pull in and out on the crown. Once you find that, use a small pin and LIGHTY push down on the that piece as you pull out the crown. The crown and a long piece should come out (the crown and the stem which are connected) You should be able to take out the movement now. Some advice: don't use super glue, it has gasses in it that will ruin your face of the watch.Maybe a model glue would be better, I being a watchmaker usr jewelers glue. Do not put the movement back in for about a hour just in case of any gasses.When done gently push the stem and crown back in and close the back. If you have any problems,please let me know. Maybe I can walk you through it. Good Luck!!!

    It may be hard to see, but look at the post on the sec. hand and see if the staff broke off in the post . If it didn't all I can say is you have to have a steady hand and LIGHTLY put that post piece in the staff coming from the movement. If you find out the staff broke off in the second hand then you have to have the watch serviced to put a new staff on. Your watch will still run without it if you really don't need it. Let me know what happens.

A metal jewel fell off of the watch face and is loose on the dial

I suggest you take it to a watch shop and ask them to repair it for you.

It can be more difficult than it appears to remove and replace backs particularly.
