This approach is unconventional. I would apply penetrating oil, let soak over night and;
Release the power at the click.
Remove rotor and winder module.
Remove the ratchet and crown wheel.
You would get somewhat better access to apply penetrating oil to the set lever screw, let soak for a night or two, attack the screw. Avoid excessive oiling.
You would expectedly discover rusted parts underneath, best to be prepared for complete overhaul.
I’ve been trying to remove the stem of my Timex moon phase watch for some time now without any success. I keep revisiting it, prodding and poking different bits and still can’t get the stem to let go. So instead of eventually breaking it, I was wondering if you experts could assist me in finding the right button, lever or clip?
I’ve looked around at different websites and it seems a bit of a Timex mine field and couldn’t find anything relating to this particular movement.
Thanks in advance,
