    Itís a waterproof case. It was never intended to be unscrewed by fingers.

    Good chance its Taubert case.

    Use a spanner. One that fits properly and make sure it is on securely. Donít use anything that will gouge the caseback.

    If you look for old watchmaking tools you can find the spannerís for these but they are just cheap box spannerís.

    Forties. Youíll know more soon but normally a good brand.
