I have a Ronson table lighter with an inset clock that does not work. The clock was made by New Haven Clock company & I know this company was best known for "dollar watches".
Additionally I know that "dollar watches" are very hard to service, and I have heard that the best 1st step is an overnight soak in solvent (like lighter fluid...how appropriate).
Referring to the attached pictures, I am going to assume that I need to remove the movement from the case so as to not also soak the watches face (dial?).
Can this be done by taking out those 3 visible screws or will this casue the movement to grenade on me?
I know those hands slide off because one did accidentally (I replaced it prior to this photo).
So can I safely slide the hands off the center, remove those 3 screws and then get access to just the movement or am I asking for trouble?
Thanks in advance,
