Hello, I hope this is the right forum to post this in.
I bought an old watch that I thought looked cool for an oldie. The brand is Heritage, a Swiss Made watch according to the writing on it. It has one hand for seconds, a window with a rotating wheel for hours, the same for minutes though a separate window, and a date window. It has an automatic movement.
Anyway, I'm trying to take it apart so that I can replace the crystal and clean up the case. However, this particular watch doesn't have any notches or tabs or anything with which to use any tool on it to remove the watch. The back is circular, just like the case, the same size around, and it fits nice and smoothly together. The stem is the only thing between them, obviously.
So, any ideas on how to remove the back? I've seen other old watches like this before, but have no idea how to get the back off. I assume that the movement comes off with the back at the same time, like an old Benrus that I have. The difference is that the Benrus has an obvious tab that can be used with a case knife to pry it off.
Any help? Thanks!
