    I made the mistake of not aligning the dots when I placed the cover back on, so it´s stuck (yes, i know...)
    Any suggestions??

    Any word on this wrong dots business. I made the same mistake and can't get my watch back off.

    Hey Christopher,
    After scratching really bad the back of the watch i just finally gave up and decided to send it for repair with FG services.
    The process is really simple, the whole thing including a new cover and battery was around $30-$40 and it took like 3 weeks. I definitely recommend it.

    I had the same problem but was able to get it off.

    I happened to have some "super-sticky" glue dots (DAP stickarounds) to try. Two of these gave me a good grip on the cover so that I could pull up on it. I also had the dots stuck a bit to the nickel I used in the slot so that I could wiggle-rotate the cover a bit while pulling.

    Good luck with yours!

    Honestly very bad design, you accidently don't link up the circles and now you have to have your watch professionally looked at. If the circles are so important to line up the watch backing it shouldn't fit in any other way. Poor design.

    My back poped off once and without thinking I snapped it back on cross threading it in the process. the battery went dead but it would turn with the tool so while holding it in my hand and smacking it firmly with my other after a minute it poped off. so if it moves with the tool still. this may work
