Take off the back of the watch and take out the time adjuster and the face should come out. You can save the face or throw it out or recycle it.

Step 3: Take Out the Glass

The glass on the watch should just pop out and now you want to sand it so it becomes more opaque after it is sanded pop it back into the watch.

Step 4: Put in Led

You can raid discarded computer towers for LEDs and sometimes even get a useable CMOS Battery in the bargain. You might even be able to swipe some little momentary-on switches to hide between your thumb & hand to save battery life.

Good idea I may try to upgrade it and add a switch where the watch adjustment knob was.
