    Remove stem Herma with ETA 2472

    Hello,

    Can anyone tell me how to remove the stem from this watch ?
    The hour and minute hand are no longer aligned so I would like to remove the movement from the case to see what's wrong.Another thread said something about a screw that turns when you pull the crown, but I don't see any screw moving.

    Turn this screw counter clockwise to loosen the angle-lever, half-turn by half-turn only and try to pull every time (with a little downward pressure on the screw. DO NOT OVERTURN, as you might loose the part(s) on the other side which will then fall between movement and back of the dial. 1 1/2 turns should usually do it. Pull crown/stem in time-setting position first before you turn the srew and start to pull further.

    The same question was asked here in 2012:

    If the watch has not been serviced for quite some time, you would probably be better off giving it to a watchmaker who will service it for you and, at the end of it all, replace the hands in their correct position. It costs a little but you end up with a fully functional watch and you can be sure that you haven't messed anything up.

    Correct, it really gives no clear hint as to which screw you should turn. We made this thread a bit clearer now in this respect, just in case someone comes again with that question. And yes, the suggestion to take it to a watchmaker for a service makes a lot of sense, especially if you are interested in wearing this watch.

    'The screw that turns' in the other thread is a bit misleading. It does not turn, but you can see (when loosened a bit) that it has a connection to the stem, holding the angle lever which keeps the stem in place. So, it just indicates to you that you at the right screw.
