Now opening the back of the watch will be easy if you have the right tool. Before knowing the tool you should use, you must know what type of back your watch is made of, mostly manufacturers make two types of them.

1.Screw-Down Back

You can see the little notches around the back this is the giveaway that it's a screw back.

One of the most important tools in watchmaking when working on a movement is watchmaker tweezers. Watchmaker’s tweezers are used to grip, remove, or reassemble the small and delicate parts of the movement. Watch parts can be extremely small, and therefore, a tweezer is the best tool for the job. Both to allow maximum grip, but also to avoid damaging the rest of the movement.

Watchmaker tweezers are small and have sharp points. But if you are on the hunt for a watchmaker tweezer, you may have found that there are countless tweezers on the market, made in different shapes, and naturally also made for different purposes.
