You could take a very small flat blade screwdriver, use a file to round off the edge a bit, and sharpen it ever so slightly, so that it will fit into the notched area of the case. Magnification is a must. Whatever you do, don't break out the vice grips.

Aloha
Thanks for that advice.

Citzen doesn't care much about spelling, about as much as they care about quality control. They're falling hard, even the micro bezels.

squamish5 Take it to a store that sells watches....$5 buck or so to change a battery

the_shovel Though I could be totally wrong, I would start by getting a loupe and looking around the caseback perimeter for a pry spot to put a case knife. As you can see in the picture of the back of the watch, the text on the back is symmetrical with watch case, so the case back likely pops off and thus only goes on one way.

holonalu I'd open it up, and get the battery out of there. If it's sprung a leak, you want it out of there before anything gets damaged. Circuit boards and leaking electrolyte are a bad mix.

Aloha, lovely watch by the way.

How the High and Mighty Citizzens have fallen.

When I was younger I really was struck with the collecting bug. This is a cool watch which I placed in my case many years ago and of course now either the watch is broken or the battery is dead. I wouldn't even know how to open the case. I do remember it had a bell which sounded so real. But I never wore it much as you can see it still has the original protective plastic on the back. What to do, what to do?Attachment 425669
