How to remove stem on Certina 29-252 Quartz

Question

Could someone tell me how I can remove the stem from such a watch ? I believe it's a rebrand of an ESA 9181.

I can see a fairly large screw in the stem area but I'm not sure if it's that one. There is a two-sided arrow near it as well.

Also, I should pull the crown all the way out before attempting to unscrew anything, right ?

Generic pic off the internet.

Since your image is hosted at an outside service, I can't magnify the image, at least without signing up for their service or something.

Based on what I might be seeing, I'd press that copper colored spot, to the right and down from the crown maybe 8mm or so, and pull on the crown. However, if pressing the spot doesn't look for feel springy, I wouldn't force it. I just can't see it clearly enough. Good luck.

The part that you pointed the arrow at actually moves as you pull or push the crown so that's why I fear it might not be what needs to be pushed. Will try to check tomorrow.

I did think of that hole but I can't see much inside...

That's exactly the indication of that being the setting lever you need to push.

I have found that many ETA calibres have no release button but the screw beside the stem needs to be loosened a turn or so...but just until the stem is released. I suggest being very careful of pushing on anything if there's no embossed arrow pointing at it...the electronic circuits are easy to damage.

    • Are you sure it is the correct tube. When I have fitted they are just friction fitted. If just a snug but not a tight fit using loctite will work.

    • Cheers mates!! Im working on a Seiko 7123A, im ususally not doing quartz, they are so unpredictable I think... Or is it I dont know them good enoght.... anyway. I have oiled all bearings, cleaned, og had to fix a little on the quick set on the date and day. And now the quick set work, the date and day skifts when I turn th hands 24 hours. The movment runs fine, and keeps time. But when is shall shift date and day during the night, the movment stops around 01.30, but the second hand works. It seems like the movment cant drag the calender work through the shift.   Can somebody pls help me with what the cause is??
    • Famous painters might paint a water colour in 4 hours. 50cents paper and paints. worth a fortune. Go figure. I heard a story about Picasso who used to sign table cloths in restaurants after entertaining a large group and never got billed. He also said he could buy a house if he painted something.... Sure there is clever marketing in watches, but I don't think the inherent value is actually in the materials...perhaps its something else less tangible.
