The 116610 uses a crystal retainer ring to hold the crystal and gasket on. These can typically only be removed successfully with a special Rolex tool. BUT if you’re determined you could slide a blade underneath it and work around until you create a gap large enough to pull it off.

Pushing it back on requires a precise due that is just bigger than the crystal but small enough to still fit atop the slim ring.

Part 319 is the retainer ring.

    • What am I doing wrong.  I cannot find Elgin numbers this low in the Bestfit nor Marshall handbooks. @JohnR725I know you have the answer.
    • I have this book and it does have an extensive amount of hairspring material.  I wonder how different it is from the one you list. I was looking at the breguet section several weeks ago but did not review it in prep for this exercise. I wish I had a set of those bending tweezers.  I have been looking for them but so far, no luck.
    • I don't. If this is for a watch you own, I'd suggest sending it to Omega for service/repair. Omega is a part of the Swatch Group and (as far as I know) the Swatch Group has discontinued making their component parts available to individuals for purchase. This includes individual watchmakers. Optionally you could search online (possibly eBay) for an identical watch/movement that isn't running which is available for a reasonable cost and purchase the watch as a "donor" and remove the pieces yourself and replace them in your watch. You may also find a skilled watchmaker who can make the part from scratch however the cost may be more than you'd expect (or be willing) to pay. Good luck!
    • the slow aspect is really really important.  hairspring work is not something you rush you really want to concentrate on what you're doing yes the videos that's a classic problem with the videos. For one thing in the videos most people of videos want to make a decent video they want to make you happy they want to show a good outcome and how many videos are really realistic on this is really hard and I may not succeed? another thing helps his books this is the one I find is really good  Bench Practices for Watch And clockmakers –  Henry B. Fried (Author) 1954 1974 the book is interesting in that it came in different versions in some versions don't have all the section so some versions are missing the hairspring section. They hairspring section is really really good as it covers how to fix things with hairsprings lots of things. Although Henry tends to make everything look really really simple somewhere out there I think on YouTube is a video of him straightening hairsprings. But the book works really really nicely then Amazon can be quite amusing and somebody didn't tell the people at the last link that their book is very rare in the prices very bad just way too low in place notice Amazon prices are not desirable at all which is what sometimes happens with Amazon I have to wonder how they come up with those prices https://www.amazon.com/Bench-practices-watch-clockmakers-Henry/dp/B0006CEZ08 https://www.amazon.com/Bench-Practices-Watch-Clockmakers-Henry/dp/096562191X https://www.clockworks.com/product/bench-practices-for-watch-and-clockmakers-by-henry-b-fried                
    • Very nice Andy 👍, I do like Seiko as does Watchie. This is a lovely early 5 example, are you pleased with it ? I think i may win with mine though from a carboot this morning 🙂. Not fair to steal your thunder today matey. I'll post it up tomorrow along with a 404, if we are allowed the 5 quid mark now.
