    Opening old Monocoque/Unibody Citizen

    I have an old Citizen EcoDrive Quartz watch that I took to the local watch shop to repair and he said it would be $180 to replace the battery (capacitor), clean it up, replace the gaskets and pressure test it. It's not worth it for me, but I know I can get a replacement battery from battery bob for about $16, so I might as well try fix it myself.

    It is identically this watch: Citizen Titanium Divers 7875-h04945 ta - Pre-Owned Mens WatchesIt has a solid case back, so I assume it must be accessed through the bezel and crystal. Any tips to get it opened up? Thanks for any help!

    Ok, actually, it just took a little more force than it did on the Seiko. The bezel is off, now to get the crystal off...
