Rado 17 jewels AS 1187, how to get the movement out of the case

Question

Hello,

So I'm back with a new project and another issue.

I'm attempting to service a Rado watch with an AS 1187 movement. I have removed the stem as well as the screws holding the movement to the case, however the movement is refusing to come out of its shell. Am I missing something here or could it be that it needs to come out from the front? On the picture you can see something that looks like a movement holder ring, but I can't be sure.

Thanks

Well, I'm answering my own question here: looks like the front fell off...

The way I got it out by pushing the movement with my finger and the glass and bezel came off.

Hi  well done  from the picture of the rear the two case screws removed, it looked like a front loader , normal way of removal is to remove the bezel and the crystal which you managed to do ok. You may or may not need a press to put them back on.:thumbsu:
