Default Best way to open screw down casebacks

I have some Quartz watches. Some of them i never wear because they are just part of the collection. I want to replace or remove the battery.
But what's the best tool to open a screw down caseback, without damaging it .

Thanks Peter

A three pronged one and a case holder for tight backs Total $10, otherwise a friction ball ($1) is enough. If you never wear quartz watches remove the battery and test run them once a year or so.

Adjustable Jaxa tool is your best bet.

it doesn't appear to be, but it works for what he need it for, and looks pretty good

Along these lines - when holding the watch tight as heck and turning the case back wrench just isn't enough, I find it best to put the case back tool in a vice. Then I bring the watch to it and turn the watch.

In a case holder, that is. Which is not expensive.
