OK, this is probably going to seem like a dumb question and I am
reasonably mechanically inclined. But at times a bit heavy handed.
But how do you get a the back back on a Timex watch after replacing
the &$%* battery. Popping the back off wasn’t a problem. Finding a
replacement battery wasn’t hard. I just couldn’t get the darn thing
closed. I bought watch case closing pliers from Stuller but couldn’t
close it with those. So I decided a to use the bigger hammer method
and used my 6 inch bench vise with wood blocks. That got the sucker
closed but upon checking the watch was not functioning and the stem
came off in my hands. Did I mention I’m a bit heavy handed at times?
It’s my own watch so I’m out the 20 or so bucks to go buy a new one
but for future reference, what is the proper way to close the back on
a Timex watch?
