First time I have done this and I have somehow lost the white plastic! Is this essential?

Yes. I can’t get the plastic spacer back in right. I guess that is why I can’t get the back.

I'm trying to figure out the type of watch that is can anyone help me that? This is the only place I can find an image of it. I recently purchased it private sale and they couldn't remember.

Googling the model number on the back, LDC74709W, leads me to believe it’s an unbranded watch that was sold at Walmart in the past.
