  1. Thanks, I figured as much. I got it open via the front, as it doesn't come out even with those two screws removed. Thanks again. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks all! Turns out the front needed to be opened. After awhile I got it up, and it all good now.... Thanks again to all of you for your input! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  3. Just spent some time with the watch, and there seems to be a lip or groove preventing the movement from coming out the back. Seems I need to remove the front bezel and Crystal. I already got three cuts last night trying this exact thing.... Oh well.... Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  4. To clarify, there is a small notch under the "supposed bezel and Crystal" but I've been unsuccessful in prying it open from there. Do you think the fact that there is a notch there is an indication that it's a front loader? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  5. Did you see the pics I've added? Would you still assume the three rounded screws need to be loosened? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  6. Issue is it's not a screw-in bezel, and I've tried to pry it open, but I've had no luck at all. Couple that with the fact that I don't know for certain it's a front load movement...... Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  7. I didn't notice anything that would match any of those suggestions. However tonight I will remove the two side screws again and try your ideas and see if I have any luck with that. Thank you again I will keep you updated. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  8. The ones that look as though they would free the movement just enabled the movement to rotate, but nothing I tried freed up the movement from the case. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  9. I did that. I removed the crown/stem, and the movement just rotated, but didn't come out. The pushers are not connected to the movement, but rather push up against small tabs that are part of the movement. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  10. The three screws are rounded. I'll definitely try your idea, just how many turns do I unscrew them? I've included some more pictures that aren't the greatest but on my phone photos of the best I can capture. (I don't know if that's what you intended, but I just realized the caption of a my post, I wrote advise instead of advice. But I guess you know what I meant.) Thanks again to both of you for taking the time to respond I appreciate it more than you can imagine! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  11. There are no screw is attached to tabs as in the one you have pictured. There was a tiny what look like a cab under the front bezel in between the front bezel or Crystal casing and the mid-frame. That's why when someone had told me and maybe a front loading movement and made sense, however I've tried to open it up that way with absolutely no luck. I will post pictures when I have a few seconds. Thanks for your help. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks for your response. I initially thought it was a regular back removed movement. I remove the back and took out the crown and stem, but the movement refused to come out the only thing it did was rotate. There were a few screws visible but I was unsure which one I would need to loosen if it was even possible to loosen the movement to remove it through the back. Someone that advised me that it's a front removal and I've been working on that assumption ever since. Would you be able to show me what the screws may or may not remove the movement from the back?

  13. I've been looking for a forum like this for a while. My Minorva Tourbillon watch has a hand that fell off. Now this is not the time or place to discuss the ups and downs of of purchasing an inexpensive tourbillon watch. However I do like to watch and love to have it back in my wrist. Issue is I cannot get the movement out. I opened the back and was unable to remove the movement from there then I was advised to try to get the moving out from the front but I'm having real problems getting the front bezel and Crystal off. I've attached some pictures they're not the greatest, I'll upload some better ones if needed but any help would be appreciated here. Thanks in advance. I thought about forcing the crystal out with air pressure, because all I need to do is just access the front of the dial. However then I realized it if I pressure the front crystal out the back display case will probably pop out first.
