How does this one open?

I’m not sure so this is guess work. A case knife around the red arrow edge. Alternatively, what looks like a Rolex grid mark around the case green arrow, so you will need a case opener that would achieve it?  I do not think it comes out from the front.

Thanks....I have already tried the green.I will shoot for the red. I can't see how it could screw down and I agree that it probably wouldn't come out through the front.

    • For those that are interested in clocks. Here is a month duration Longcase clock. In case you have never seen one. Looking at the movement you can see how much bigger some of the wheels are in order for the gearing to be able to last a month on one single full wind. It’s a nice clock. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Grandfather-Clock-month-duration-strikes-hourly/264092034953?hash=item3d7d1ca789:g:4goAAOSwfgRcDm2e
    • Good job Eland. Congratulations, you are doing a good job. And do not despair about the broken discs ... I have already lost count of how many I have destroyed, due to excessive heat, excessive force, etc.
      It could be that my response is a bit hasty, but I'm sure you do not need any of the devices that you indicate in the links. they are all POWER AMPLIFIERS. And what you need is a pre-amplifier. And seeing what you used in your project, I would consider that what you need is accurate and nothing more. It is possible that some modifications could be made but they would be minor. I would like to ask you to share an on-screen capture of the waveform to determine the level of the signal you are getting. I send you an example of what I am requesting.  
    • Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum.
    • If I live to retire and will be in good health (you never know) my plan is to dedicate a lot of time to this wonderful hobby and perhaps even be able to make some extra money doing it. I really don't know if there's any money to be made by building quality watches and try to market them and sell them on eBay, but I'm going to give it a try. Perhaps branding is more important than I imagine, but I'll see. Also, I've been asked by several people to "have a look" at their old mechanical and automatic watches, but so far I've denied it, having too little time even for my own projects.
    • So I managed to get everything together and got my first readings using a standard stereo pre amp I bought for a turntable several years ago. Sadly i still didn't manage to get my diy microphone preamplifer kit  to work (the one i mentiont in one of my earlier posts). At the moment I think about ordering a already built preamplifier board but I do not have the qualifications to judge with would do the job (or at least would lead to better results then with my current solution.  That's why I am again counting on your help. There are some pretty cheap options but I don't know how to judge the all over amplification from the specifications given. My current preamp has the following technical specifications: Input Impedance 100kOhm, 5mV, Output Impedance 100kOhm, 250 mV, S/N-Ratio: >50 db, 12V DC, 100mA The options I'm most into at the moment is something like that cause its cheap and and may be an improvement (however I'm not sure about that) https://www.ebay.de/itm/TDA2030A-Audio-Power-Amplifier-Board-15W-AC-DC-12V-Assembled/292336674126?hash=item44109fa54e:g:nUAAAOSwKrhVZbo1:rk:28:pf:0 or even simpler: https://www.ebay.de/itm/TDA2030A-Audio-Power-Amplifier-Board-15W-AC-DC-12V-Assembled/292336674126?hash=item44109fa54e:g:nUAAAOSwKrhVZbo1:rk:28:pf:0 There are more fancy options like https://www.gearbest.com/other-accessories/pp_009478010615.html?wid=1433363 or https://www.gearbest.com/other-accessories/pp_009478010615.html?wid=1433363 but I have absolutely no clue if they would be suitable for the task at hand. The thing is that (as you surely have noticed by now)  do not know the first thing about electronic. But I'm eager to learn, I just don't know where to start. So thank you for your time cleaning my mess.   On the bright site as I said, I managed to get my first signals and I'd link to share some pics of that:
      This is my set up at the moment and some readouts from two of my watches (I hope it's okay to post the watch-o-scope screenshots). Today I broke the piezo trying to replace the cabels between it and the jack with shilded ones and now I have to get some more piezos to get my DIY-timegrapher running again. Let me know what you think and thank you very much!
