Apparently, like this.............


Only problem is now,  the pin  doesn't seem to budge - I've tried both pressing it down vertically, and in various directions horizontally, while pulling on the crown/stem!  No go!

No, that's not going to work. I'm not sure about this, but right above the arrow it looks like the stem goes through a piece of flat spring like steel. that piece may act like a "yoke" on the stem, you might try very gently moving it up and see if the stem will slide through.

Just a guess.

Your welcome.  I have 2 other Timex Expedition watches, but I don't know whether they have the same type of movement (Timex TIM M905).  Next time I change their batteries, I will have a look.  I don't want to open the backs too often as they (as many cheaper watches) have press-on backs, and it is virtually impossible to remove/replace without a minimum of damage. Greetings.

    • "Philip head screws"   are very common and loads of timex dead watches out there for "a buck or two".  I did not know the screws came in metric and S.A.E..  vin
    • Unless you have another watch you can steal them from, it will be hard to say that they are "screw x". You should be able to get those from a normal fastener supplier though. You just need to know the thread pitch, diameter, and length of the screws. You can measure the thread pitch with one of these: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thread_pitch_gauge Note that metric and imperial systems measure screws differently of course, so if you're having trouble getting something that is exactly right, try using the other system. Googling around should get more details on getting the right measurements.
    • I have the above watch that has four small cross head screws holding the back of the case on. My question is that these look rather worn so where are places to get these screws and what measurements would be needed? The pic is not the actual watch but is the model. TIA Mike
    • .. on the other hand, there is the ETA 2893-2 automatic GMT for example... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Authentic-ETA-2893-2-automatic-GMT-watch-movement-Victorinox/132919302254?hash=item1ef29b986e:g:KOMAAOSwuJRcG5Kj:rk:55:pf:0
