Last year I had a Brighton watch that needed a new battery - I tried to pry the backoff with jeweler's tools and could not do it - wound up scratching the back - so - I sold the watch on Ebay with disclosures about the scratches and that it needed a new battery.
I recently got a beautiful brand new Brighton watch - it needs a battery. I am thinking of keeping this one myself.
The backs of Brighton watches don't have the small "niche" where you can insert a small tool to get the back off. I have changed watch batteries myself before, but this one is beyond difficult.
I don't know if letting a jeweler handle it would work - they could make a damage disclaimer, struggle with the back and scratch it also.
