    Need help with Elgin Swissonic Case

    Hey everyone,
    I was wondering if anyone has an Elgin Swissonic watch like mine and has opened the back to get to the movement? I need to put the second hand back in place and the back cover is giving me a difficult time. Apparently its a 2 piece case. The inner case came out fine but I cannot get the back to budge. Im putting gouges in the sides with my case knife and dont want to keep doing that. Any ideas??? Thank you!

    I got it off and watch is now running! Case is chipped on one side, this thing was on there REALLY tight! Thanks!
