    Yes, it's hard to tell from that picture for sure if it's a one piece case or not. Do you have a case knife? If so just work it under the edge.

    I have a Wittnauer that doesn't have an indentation, despite the fact that there is a seam around the back. Turns out you open it by putting a special wrench around the crystal to compress it, and then pulling out the innards from the front of the watch. This could be something like that.

    What does the front look like? Is it a domed crystal?
