    Providing the movement numbers will help in your search. If you haven't done so already, use the search facility on this forum, which will probably throw up some useful links for each watch that you're looking for.

    Another source of information is Dr.Ranffts website, which contains archive information on movements etc.

    There are others more expert than I on this forum, who I'm sure will be along directly, but once you have the movement number of your Eterna, certainly, you should be able to obtain most of the info. you need.
    Enjoy the search

    See the thread on the amazing sticky ball! https://forums.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?t=356526

    I've heard of people using a ball of duct tape for the same purpose. I have a short strip of drawer liner from Ikea that works well for stuff that isn't torqued too tight.

    I'm assuming they have screw-on backs, so just press the ball against the case back and twist.

    Of course ,if its a snap-on back, you have to look carefully for a raised notch around the edge of hte case back, and pry up gently with a lever of some sort (I use a small flat head screwdriver that I annealed, bent, ground down and polished to a mirror finish).

    I don't think any of the ones you posted open trough the crystal, so that should cover you. But if you're not sure, post a picture of the case back. Double checking is better then scratching up the case!
