This will do the job you could try it by hand or you might need the vice as well. Don't buy the cheap Chinese type which are about on ebay go to a proper watch tool suppliers and get the real thing, this tool will open pretty well all watch backs.

I do have one of these, and tried the bits with the flats, however, the sides of the case back are thin and I can't get enough of a grip. I was looking at ones similar vintage openers for Mido. Similar style and look more like a crescent wrench. Thanks for posting

So I just opened one of these last week with the "jaxa" tool (I think that's how its spelled) with the blade inserts. You have to tighten it very hard, and position it so the blades don't slip, or this can cause damage. It is a screw off caseback, not a snap off.

In my opinion the only way to open this type of case is with the correct tool. Any other tool may end up deforming it.

You can superglue a nut to the case back and then loosen it with an adjustable spanner. remove the nut with Superglue remover when you've finished.

I picked up a set of Tissot back removers and there were a number of the correct type wrench in there but they're too expensive for a one off job.

On other way I've used is to use a large adjustable wrench but be VERY careful and hold it tight and press down so as not to let it slip off.

    • That hairspring looks great, good job!   As for the amplitude (and stopping in 30 seconds?), I suppose you've checked all the usual things, train freedom, endshakes everywhere, peg your holes especially for the fork pivots, check that the barrel has shake on its arbor and the lid is well seated.
    • I am one of those people interested in everything from fine wine to firearms, history, science, medicen, technology art etc lately I have been learning about fine watches and automatic movements in particular. Just like with my firearms and golf equiptment I search for the perfect "it" for fit for me. Some call it the grail. At any rate I currently like Submariners and Submariner homeages. I own an Invicta 9937ob which has a very accurate sw200 movement and looks good on the wrist if I can make a couple of mods. My ideal watch at this time would be a prototype which I doubt currently exists - a Submariner style 16610 type with 904l steel but with Submariner in Red and Chomalite blue lume instead of the green superlume. Finally. A sapphire case back with Gold internal. There is a company that mods real Rolex dial and many places offer custom relume in bgw9 blue.  That leaves open the question of whether building a prototype of that watch is possible. I always want to stay within all of the laws so that modification of Rolex parts assembled with real rolex orca mixture of aftermarket parts is legal and for my own enjoyment not to sell or pass as an original Rolex product. I like the white gold hpur markers and the classic size and style case of the 16610. I think adding the red Submariner text with chomalite blue hours hands and pip and sapphire case back with gold internal especially rotor would product a rather satisfying "it" watch. Finally, I would like a real chonometer movement my eye on original 3135 or a 2892 movement and real 300m water resistent with proper gaskets saphire crystal etc. Anyone have any guiding thoughts or words of wisdome for the project? Thank you very respectfully
