    Out the back. In your movement photo the screws at 2 & 8 position at the outer edge appear to hold it in place with the little plates that slot under the edge of the movement spacer.

    Thanks Bob.. movement out and work has begun.. managed to lose one of those little metal plates.. once the dial was off it looked like someone had 'poured' oil into watch..

    As a starting point before pulling apart, I soaked whole movement in some lighter fluid to get rid of the excessive oil.. next checked hairspring and found it was tangled... now ticking away nicely..

    Preparing mentally to do a full strip down of the movement which will be my first..

    So if you could all cross your collective fingers it would be appreciated..

    Really - they called it "Jarproof". I thought that name was registered for Gothic, but maybe not. Nice one, and the resemblance of the chapter ring to those fouond in Polerouters is striking, indeed.

    Good luck with your repair job!

    Best regards

    Re: Hafis Jarproof

    Was making progress then 'ping' off went a tiny spring for the date change..



    So before I lose any more pieces, I think I will call it a day and get the local watchmaker to finish.. hopefully, he will have a replacement part..

    Hints on how to avoid losing parts like this in the future will be greatly received..

    Cheers
