Hi. I bought this pocket watch online for less that $10 - couldn't tell from the photos exactly what it was and listed as "not working".
Well it turned up yesterday - solid silver case, enamel dial in perfect condition, Robert Thuire et fils movement; and reason wasn't working was that the loose minute hand was jamming the sub-second. Been running 24 hours now and spot-on timing.
1. How do I remove the movement so I can properly clean the case? There is one case screw that I can see (top left in photo) and I have released but to no apparent affect.
2. Is it possible to date this watch from the movement number; 22645
