You can open combination locks by pulling on them and then rotating the rings until you feel the mechanism "give".
I'm not sure if this would be too successful with a suitcase but it is worth a try. Use a screwdriver to gently pull along the axis of the lock and rotate one furthest away from the catch.
Rotate it until it goes slack and then feel for the next one along and repeat.
Continue until all the tumblers have loosened, when the lock should open.
Some patience and practice needed.

Pottery Barn. How can I fix a sticking second hand on this pocket watch?
If the second hand is misaligned and binding on one of the other hands the repair is fairly straightforward but will mean opening the case and making an adjustment with the delicacy of a surgeon and without wishing to insult you - if you have to ask how you probably aren't the best person to do the repair, especially if something else is causing it to bind.

How do I change your battery natural Raymond watch Number 5420PB
Tip & How-To about Watches
Changing Watch Batteries
Lots of posters ask "what is the battery in my (name of watch)" with a view to changing it yourself. This is a bad idea for many reasons. You don't have the tools or knowledge to remove a rotary screw on back, or the gasket sealant for a waterproof watch. Some fashion watches have 4 traditional screw and need professional grade jeweler screwdrivers. Also, there are about 20 batteries commonly used in watches, in various sizes and internal technology, Lithium Ion, Silver Oxide and Manganese Alkaline. If you buy them, you generally have to buy 10!
Don't sweat the details. Just take the watch to your local jeweler. They have all the batteries at hand and the tools to remove the back. It is done whilst you wait for $8 to $15!
