    A Bit Stuck

    I just picked this up needing a bit of TLC...
    c1.jpg

    ... and I can't get it out of the case to see what's up

    The 'chronostop' button has me baffled

    Anyone know how to remove this (properly, without having to butcher it) ?
    I can see there are 2 pins between it and the case: One is (very) recessed and can't be pushed; the other looks like it was threaded in and then cut off ... there's not enough stub to get a hold of to twist it out (if indeed it was threaded in).

    Can't find anything on the wibbly wobbly web. Any help/guidance appreciated.

    at a guess possible need to remove hands dial to get at it as has four screws on the dial so might be that way maybe not sure I had one the same and flog it in the end because it seem like to much work
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    Cheers Mark, I did wonder if I'd have to get behind the dial to release it.

    Yeah, it's certainly no money maker; but I get a kick out of bringing them back to life...... Besides, it's good 'therapy' for me and it keeps me off the streets.

    hmmm gut says button stays and the ring comes of with it on... hmmm got a back shot of it really though once the dial came off there would have been a couple of clamps to remove and it would have lifted out crown and all ..

    had one watch and the crown was fixed once in... it was never coming out again ... hmmm will have to have a think on it
