Most Bulova Watches have PRESSURE TIGHT backs. Meaning the back is applied with EQUAL amounts of pressure to the entire back. There are two(2) solutions:

1. Take the Bulova watch to an experienced watch dealer/repaiman, to have the back applied, or

2. CAREFULLY MAKE SURE THE BACK IS IN THE PROPER POSITION, then WRAP THE ENTIRE watch with a soft, cushy clothe and with a pair of pliers, CAREFULLY apply pressure to the center of the back plate, until the back covers seats to the proper depth(closed), at the same time BEING VERY CAREFUL not to crack the watch crystal!!

Ebay has a case back closer press for $18.45 (not the most expensive one) that has a set of plastic dies (of different sizes to fit any watch) to fit around the top and bottom rim of your watch, then squeeze the press until you hear it pop into place. I personally would not try it any other way for fear that I'D break the crystal, then your small problem grows into a big one.

SOURCE: I can't seem to remove

its probably a screw on back that needs a special tool to open it. but even if you do open it you will not be able to seal it properly

Hi. If you take a tiny screwdriver (one that you might use to screw a screw into an eyeglass and run it gently around the back you will feel an indentation where you can insert the tip and pop open the back. The battery is easy to access but trying to get the back back on is the problem! Good Luck.

Battery size for bulova 98g48


If there is a dead battery in the watch, when it is opened, that is one way to identify the battery size.

A second way, if no battery left in it, is to go to a local jeweler or watch battery replacement kiosk at the shopping mall.

Third, contact Bulova at phone number shown:

Is the back of the Bulova 98H48 a pop up or screw on? I need to replace its battery.


are there indents going around in a circle on the back of the watch? if so it is a screw off. You need a special tool available at a jeweler to unscrew back. If it does not have those indents, then look very carefully around the outside edge for the lifting spot, use a pocketknife (carefully!) to lift!

I have a bulova 98m36 ladies watch and I need to know what size battery it takes


I advise you to take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving.

This is particularly true if you watch is sealed as replacing the back can be difficult.

I have a Caravelle Bulova watch #48G33 and I need to change the battery. I took it to a jeweler and he mess up the back and told me he did not have a battery that fit. I think he was unable to get the back...


Hey there !
if the back has a notch on the top left of the cover (right underneath to what would be 10'oclock position), it is a 'Pop-up'. But if the watch has 6-8 notches on the back plate of the watch its a screw-off.
Its really hard to say what battery size it would take due to the fact that each watch has a different operating mechanism and its hard to determine that from the model number.

Cannot re-close Bulova watch after replacing battery


Not the answer I was hoping for, but apparently there is a "press" that jewelers use to reseal water resistent watches. There is a reference to it on this website: http://howtochangeawatchbattery.com/changing%20a%20watch%20battery%20page4.htm
