    Anyone open the back of your lead-lined versions?

    Hello,

    I've been thinking of just adjusting the +/- screw on my 756 chronograph myself, but I've never messed with a lead inner case.

    How do you remove that cover?

    Thanks,
    heb

    Do you have a first- or second series 756?

    In the latter case, the antimagnetic inner case (not made from lead, but from soft iron, by the way) may be integrated into the caseback as it is on the 656. Other than that, a separate soft iron movement cover just sits on the movement holder; sometimes it ot held by a spring between it and the caseback.
    Cheers,

    Before you hurt your watch, here is a picture (just from a copy, so the quality is not sooo good)

    Picture is from Chronos magazine Nr 4/2002 (I don´t know where you are from / maybe the same story was in Watchtime that year)

    Thanks. I have the WatchTime magazine which documents the 756 chrono too, never thought of looking at it for this reason. From your picture, it looks like the cove just sits on the ring around the movement and is secured by the srewed in back.

    Laughing Given the latest rumor.........

    ....that RGM may be the service provider, I'll wait to send my watch to him for regulation.

    Thanks for all inputs,
