I just received two Doxas. Thrilled but a bit frustrated with my complete lack of pocket watch knowledge. Would someone be kind enough to let me know on the secret of " how to open the back " of these watches? I see the hinge, I see the back detail for the thumb to lift the back but I don't want to " force " anything. There must be a release mechanism. I have a smaller pocket watch and to release the back I just need to push down on the crown.
Thank you for your guidance here.
PS: While I have your attention, how do you move the hands to set the time ?
