    How Do I Get To The Heart Of This Bulova?

    I can't figure out how to get the back off this boy. Is it a push out like the Phantom? Any help would be appreciated.

    Comes out through the front.

    Thank you Sir. Split stem? I'm guessing I'll have to do this with extreme care.

    Still not getting the hang of this 'push through' thing. How does it work?

    Best wait for more replies Mark, but I suspect it means lifting out the crystal with correct tool and then the movement can come out through the front. . there may be a split stem, or once the crystal is out you may see a stem release near 3 o'clock..

    Cheers

    I suspect that my tool is incorrect. So indeed I had better wait. Thank you Anzac.

    Yeah, you most likely need to use a crystal lifter.



    Although I have seen my watchmaker remove plastic crystals by squeezing the crystal between his two thumbs and applying a sort of upward pressure. I tried to follow suit but I haven't mastered the knack.

    You will need a crystal pull to get the crystal off then gently wedge some fine tweezers between the pulled out crown and case and use light pressure until the stem detaches and half comes out.

    Thank you everybody. I think I'll have to get a crystal puller. I'll probably need it more and more.

    Honestly it was one of my best buys. It's a tool I find myself using at least once a week and it paid for itself pretty quickly. I went for the cheap 15$ Amazon puller but there are more expensive and maybe better Swiss ones available. I would recommend it.
