    Removing the case back from a Bremont chronograph

    Has anyone attempted this? I need to speed up my Selita SW500 movement. But not if those little screws hold the entire multi-tiered case together.

    Thanks,

    I think that’s never a good idea unless you’re a professional. Though bremont says you need to service with them, it’s an ETA so any good watch maker can regulate it for a few dollars. I have 2 bremonts and would never open them up.

    But to address your concern further, i think if you remove those screws, the watch will not fall apart. If you look at pics with the caseback off, there are other screws holding the rest of the case together.

    Thank you for your response. Unless you are the one in 10 million who have a personal relationship with a watchmaker spanning decades, or perhaps one who is a close relative, what you say in your second sentence is not true. NO watchmaker is simply going to open the case back, move the adjustment lever a bit, and charge you $50, even though that is all the watch needs. Instead, they will inform you that your watch (regardless of age) needs an overhaul (with a listing of all the steps involved) and charge you $750.

    But your first sentence is true and I will probably do it: send it to Bremont's NYC Boutique, who will forward it to England, etc. In the meantime, I will start saving that $750.

    I did get my bremont U2 fully serviced last summer - great price/value considering the work they did (incl. shipping back all parts they had replaced ... for the flat service fee). (I had given my U2 some extensive water/sea activity time in the pat years living in Asia).
