Seiko press fit case STUCK!

Question

HI

I have a Seiko ladies mechanical  watch with a press on back, my problem is the case back will not budge.

I have tried all three of my case knives with out any luck.

My question is does any one have any tricks for removing case backs? Maybe a sledge hammer or Oxy propane cutting torch!

I have both.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Kevin

Well. One idea is to glue something to the case back and then pull it out but you have to make sure that you won't damage the case back and that the glue will wile away. Superglue usually is good.

I use a bare paper-cutter to start a gap for the case-back knife. I position the edge of the knife at the case/caseback joint and force the blade into. Sometimes I use a small hammer to tap the blade in. Note that the paper-cutter blade is brittle and will break if you twist it. Once a gap is created proceed with your usual caseback knife.

Be careful when using the paper-cutter as a slip can pretty much wreck your day!
