Hi All

This is a new one for me.  Wyler Incaflex Navigator watch - I managed to get the case back off after a bit of treatment and scratching (literally) around, only to be confronted with a secondary case cover. Now I am unaware of the next step. The secondary cover is brass as opposed to the stainless primary cover.

Can someone tell me whether this is a front load or is the cover supposed to pop off too.  Other refurb videos I have seen - this secondary cover is a loose fit.  There is corrosion/gunk around the seal so I am treating that too - but I don't want to force it.


Any help would be appreciated - Pics below:

Crisis averted!  I managed to find a video from 2014 on YouTube which had a similar watch.  The (plastic) bezel pops off and the movement came out the front!  and... tada... it started running! Unbelievable.  The movement looks good too.  I do need a crown, which has a pocket watch style crown  which goes into a slot on the stem.  The crown is missing - so that's the next challenge!

    • Hi, the cylinder is broken and I want to try to fix it. I don't have any specific tools, so how can I solve the problem? A new plataform or just the movement/pinion?
    • Personally i like to collect old iconic watches, so many made famous by films etc. Or unusual designs.That doesn't especially make them a great watch just a theme of collecting. You've mentioned the Willard, how about a genuine A 11 military watch.  Another iconic Seiko would be the Pogue space watch.  A Citizen bullhead ?.  A grand might even get you a Dirty Dozen, i dont know the availability of these in the US though, an A 11 is more appropriate for your country. Pre Swatch Omega Tissot or Longines , like Richard I'm not a fan of Swatch.
    • Sorry to repeat my question @316lad, but I'm really curious if you could elaborate on why you describe the movement as "a bit of rubbish". My main interest in watches is precisely their movements and so far I have a somewhat limited experience of the ETA movements and that is why I am so curious.  Thanks! 👍
    • Come on members please keep it friendly.  We all try to help. Just think before you start typing.  For what its worth I still say it is a fake the engraving on the back of the case is very amateurish a single word has different size lettering.  
    • Looked up images of natural scenery of quetico park on internet, beautyyyful indeed, I guess no space left for spiders as the place must be crowded with tourists. LWS, we expect to see bigger catch on your future visits.
