Just figured this out myself - couldn't find an answer on the internet or Colibri's website.
Look at the bottom edge of the pocket watch near the hinge (the end opposite of the post). On my watch, there is a small indentation, barely noticable, along the bottom of the side of the back cover directly opposite (but very near) to the hinge. Take a small fine screwdriver (as you would use to change a screw in a pair of glasses), and gently pry that into the groove. A small amount of force is required, but the back just "pops" off.
Keep in mind, there is a risk of scratching the cover. So if that risk is unacceptablen to you, a watch store should be able to do this as well. But it was pretty easy. Hope that helps.

mcdevito75 here, This is a very common problem easily fixed, when the battery was change the repair prerson could have interfered with the seconds hand bending it ever so slightly so it hits the other hands or it became loose, return to the person who changed the battery, they"ll take the back off and fix that seconds hand. Remember this may be no ones fault so I don"t know about any extra charges for service on your watch. This is just my info to you.
No solution, but can give you information on Henry Stuart, as he is part of my family history. 1803 Liverpool - 1882 Oxton Cheshire when still described as a watchmaker. Making watches from at least 1825, in Park Lane Liverpool & later in Coventry too, but business suffered from the advent of cheap Swiss watches. Specialised in very beautiful cases, we are led to believe.
This is not common to have two different movements in one watch ( mechanical and electronic). I'm pretty sure that the analog part is battery driven, so, no need to wind it. You may have the watch with two separate batteries, each one feeding its own movement. Check if you have this version and replace the analog watch battery. If there is only one battery in watch, then the analog part is faulty or the battery is underpowered. In this case you will need the help of the watchmaker. Do not forget to rate, please.
Pocket watches are watches the collect dust (from the pockets they sit in) very easily, so you may have an issue here with that being the cause of why your hands are not moving as they once did. Then again, it could be VERY easily that you went to a place to have them replaced and the battery you purchased was "aged" and no longer has power enough to make the watch function properly. I would suggest that if you replaced it yourself in a place where you bought the battery and went home to put it in, go to a place where they put it in for you as they will overturn the stock much quicker. If the clerk is someone of real knowledge they will even be able to tell you "we sell a 20 of that one every week" or something of that nature. As I have suggested to others this is the time of year where quality of service for a small watch battery is much less then it will be when you go in in 5 weeks when the store is happy to see someone.
