Default How to open the back of a Seiko Quartz watch 0923 8060

Hi all experts,
I have a Seiko 0923 8060 and the glass was broken and I want to change the glass, however, I can't open the case of the watch, how to do it?

Thanks a lot!

It looks like a typical snap back with an additional battery cover. Look for a seam.

Yes, there is a seam on the opposite side of the battery cover, I used a case knife to open it but it was real hard, I scratched the case at several places and still couldn't open it.

You need a watch case holder, then use a small sharp screwdriver and possibly a watch hammer. Just use the hammer lightly.

Don't worry, we've all been there and scratched watches! Well I have!

A holder certainly helps, but you do get watch hammers that are delicate wee things and a light tap on a flat head screw driver with a good quality shank (don't want it breaking) will generally work. If you find the blade is too think you can always sand a finer point on it

Yes, I used a larger screw driver that has a larger blade and ply the case open, no scratch this time, even using the larger screw driver...
