  1. If you slightly, and I mean slightly,distend the tube ( with a pair of pliers or vice ) it should friction fit with some strong adhesive. You could also try cooling the case and heating the tube to expand it then friction fitting it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Best opening tool I ever bought. Expensive but worth every penny Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Here we go!! I’m looking for a new 7750 movement holder which is a bit more robust than the A@F plastic one. I’ve looked on Ebay and found a bergeon one and a Chinese one. Exactly the same markings and seemingly the same quality from the same factory. Anyone had any experience with these and quality issues ?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Ps I always use a loupe to make sure I tap accurately Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Needs a cease opening knife and a watchmakers hammer. It WILL open. Put the watch in a small vice. Wrap it in a cloth to prevent scratching. Leave a small gap so the watch isn’t too tight. Insert the knife in the gap. Give it a firm tap. Increase tap pressure until it loosens. It will come off!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Let us know how you get on. Be brave!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yes. Gentle force!! It will come out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Looks like a split stem. Take that out and the movement should come out easily Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. For the sake of £10 for the spring or £20 for a barrel complete I would just replace it!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
