    Help with identifying type of watch back

    I have a Nixon Tessa watch. The watch back has one notch (approx ¼") at the center top. Other than that there are no other notches, screws etc. Trying to figure out how to remove back but have no idea as I have never seen this type of back. Any help appreciated...thanks!

    Could it be that you have to remove the crown and outer bezel first? I have no idea, but that looks like it might be a separate piece to me. There are also watches that have to be opened by compressing and removing the crystal rather than the back ("front loaders"). No idea on this one though.

    Guys!! It has a pry off back...Stick a thin blade in that indent and pop it off.

    The easiest way to get the back off a watch like that is one sharp blow with a hammer. Repeat if necessary until the back detaches.

    Ah - I misunderstood what he meant by the notch in the description. Sorry about that - yes, it's a pry-off. Note that if there are any gaskets to provide the water resistance, you could damage them or otherwise impact the resistance when putting the back on again.

    Moved to Fashion watches. Back is pry off. Try a watchmaker knife (notch).
    Kind regards
