    Help Identifying Wyler Watch

    I have a square Wyler watch that I am trying to get more information on. It only has Wyler on the face...no Incaflex or anything else. Thanks to my local watchshop, I found out the movement is 66521 (not sure if that helps). It is square shaped and I'm guessing it is from the 1940's. Anyone know how I can find out more about the watch?

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forum. What more information are you looking for? A photo or two would help tremendously

    I guess I'm looking to confirm what year/era it was indeed made. I'm also curious if anyone knows why it doesn't say Incaflex on the face as all the other Wyler's I've seen do. Here is a photo.Name:  Wyler.JPG

    Probably means it was made before they developed the incaflex. The watch looks 30's-ish, which would have been before. Wyler's been around since the 19th century.

    Any thoughts on how I can establish what year the watch is?

    A picture of the movement would be helpful. The watch style and dial design are rather timeless in their simplicity.

    Thanks for the help so far. Question is...how do I get it apart properly? I can remove the movement from the crystal. However getting the back off of the movement looks to involve moving the "stem"...not sure if that's the proper word for the part that winds the watch. Thoughts on how to remove it?

    Hi there,

    if you're not familiar with such cases, better leave it closed. I guess prying out movements jammed in the back kills more balances than hard shocks. Usually rectangular movements have ears mostly at the short sides, with which they rest on a frame in the back. Often they can simply be lifted out by wobbling the crown, but sometimes they stick in the back and must be lifted e.g. with a knife between ear and frame.
