Have this Raymon Weil 5590 in black color and had a compression back, popped it open and replaced the battery

It's fully functional and working, but pushing the rear cover is being a PAIN. Is there a special trick to it? Rear cover does have a gasket on it too.

Thank you for the help and advise thumbsup

You need a watch press. If you press too hard you will break the crystal, without this.

Dang, that's what I just picked up from youtube!!

Is there any workaround for it? Since obviously don't have the press!

Glad you got it. If you have a few watches, it's worth it to buy a press and tool kit. Some kits have a spanner wrench also.

Thanks again, curious if you have any recommendations on a cheap kit? Have some jewelers screw drivers laying around though. ...

I've always had mine serviced by a jeweler specialist that is sent out Zales. They seal it in an oxygen free tank or box, I was told it was nitrogen. Alot of watches need this.

I recently pressed the back onto my 24 year old Victorinox watch using a shop vice with wood protecting both sides of the watch. It worked fine.

No guarantees implied or expressed though!

I cracked the sapphire crystal on my Longines doing this. Now, I do it the right way. I use vice-grips! laugh

Yes, a watch press is the correct way to avoid problems. It presses the case beck from the middle-outward.

I send my Seiko watches back to COSERV (factory warranty) where they replace gaskets and pressure test after replacing a battery.

If I had an expensive or a divers watch I would do this.
