    The white ring doesn't move.
    There is a screw attaching the metal ring (around the plastic cover) to the board. Maybe I need unscrew it?

    What happens if you push where it says push?

    Nice one pickle puss. I don't want to explode!
    I believe the push recess allows for the crown to come out ;)

    I was right – the tiny 2mm screw held the cover in place.

    The white cover appear to be part of the metal ring which is giving the whole construction rigidity to hold the battery in place.

    Unless somebody tells me there is a trick to open it I will try to pry the battery out of the cover.

    I am only afraid I will brake the thing.
    Where is no risk there is no gain!

    Last update:
    The battery needs to be pushed out of the metal + plastic cover (Similarly to other models where you need to pry out the battery from it’s spot).

    Change is simple.

    Little trouble gave me putting the tiny screw back in place and additional stress while the back couldn’t be fixed despite the use of a pressing tool to cover it again.

    Glad it worked out for you in the end. I’ve taken onboard the lessons you had to learn the hard way so that if ever I come across a similar set up I know what to do.

    Well done. Glad that orange dial Timex is running again.
