    I could be totally wrong but that is just a fake (or look-alike) screw back and might be a snap-back. Can't take any responsibility without seeing the watch on my workbench.

    It would need further images all around in the horizontal position.

    Its a pop off back. I had a similar one and the movement was like a Timex type. Still an attractive watch.

    So there it is; all the secrets revealed of a cheap-and-cheerful sports watch, made towards the end of the era of mechanical dominance. There was probably little or no consideration given to repair or service in the design of this watch, but at least there is nothing preventing you from working on the watch (as with some dollar watches).
    Thanks for the tip! My thoughts exactly on being able to play with it without too much worry over messing something up... at worst, I lose $5

    It was definitely a snap-on. Good call!
