    I just got an inexpensive Westclox pocket watch. The back cover is loose and comes off in my pocket. How do I tighten it? Sure on or snap on?

    Thanks

    Hmmm? I'm not sure. Post a pic (if you can) of how it snaps together. Maybe there's a pin, or a tab that can be adjusted?

    I am almost positive it is a snap on back, I do not know what would cause it to loosen to the extent that the back just falls off, unless someone along the way has put a back from another watch on it ?
