Question about Bulova Men's Watch
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!!

Ebay has a case back closer press for $18.45 (not the most expensive one) that has a set of plastic dies (of different sizes to fit any watch) to fit around the top and bottom rim of your watch, then squeeze the press until you hear it pop into place. I personally would not try it any other way for fear that I'D break the crystal, then your small problem grows into a big one.

Be gentle with the watch, the glass or lens will be fragile. Cover with a thick layers of cloth, put the cover on the back and gently pop the cover back on.

Hi. If you take a tiny screwdriver (one that you might use to screw a screw into an eyeglass and run it gently around the back you will feel an indentation where you can insert the tip and pop open the back. The battery is easy to access but trying to get the back back on is the problem! Good Luck.
