    opening Wittnauer LED watch

    I don't know what got into me but I had a vintage LED watch craze phase a few weeks ago. A Wittnauer LED watch with 1 pusher at 1 o'clock and a recessed button at 7 o'clock. The back doesn't look like a screw-back. I can't find any of those flat areas to stick a flat blade under to pry it open. It seems stuck. Any ideas on getting it open before I have to go to the watchmaker.

    The recessed button isn't a case back release button by any chance? I seem to recall reading something to that effect somewhere - just can't remember where... :)

    Recessed button is your Set, Mode button on outside(don't push hard there), these are Generally pop of case backs just find a edge and pry up it will pry/leaver off.

    Then please disregard my suggestion above, I wouldn't want to be the one who's suggestion broke your watch.
