HOW TO OPEN WATCH CASES WITH TOOLS

Categories: US

 

CASE BACKS HOW TO GET THEM OPEN

OK, I WILL SPEND SEVERAL  HOURS WRITING THIS UP.
THESE ARE MY RECOMMENDATIONS
OTHERS MAY HAVE THEIRS

For some great pictures GOOGLE: goldsmithworks watch case backs
For some great single case  WYLER pictures: GOOGLE: goldsmithWATCHworks WYLER

 

OPENING CASE BACKS AND THE TOOLS REQUIRED:

1- SCREW DOWN WITH INDENTATIONS

THESE CASE BACKS HAVE CLEAR INDENTION’S. THE SIZE VARIES. ON THOSE THAT ARE SUPER SHALLOW, BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN UTILIZING 3 FOOT ADJUSTABLE  CASE WRENCH.  ONE SLIP AND YOU HAVE A GOUGE. A TIP: USE SOME SCOTCH TAPE ON CASE BACK. PLACE DIAGONALLY TO INDENTS. LEAVING INDENTS OPEN, IF YOU SLIP YOU HAVE PROTECTION– THOUGH IT IS NEVER GUARANTEED THAT YOUR FORCE WILL MAKE TIPS OF FEET GO THROUGH TAPE.

HINT: MANY TIMES IT IS BETTER TO MOVE WATCH WHILE
HOLDING WRENCH IN PLACE VS TRYING TO MOVE WRENCH.

#1
indents.jpg (6017 bytes)
NOTE INDENTS ARE DEEP  

case-wrench.jpg (11171 bytes)   ofrei-504-SPRING-BAR-1.jpg (6730 bytes)

 

 

2 – CASE BACKS WITH HEX RIDGES

MOST OF THESE HAD MANUFACTURER WRENCHES LIKE THE TOP PIC. YET, THE THREE FOOT ADJUSTABLE AND TWO SIDED CASE WRENCHES WORK FINE. TAPE SHOULD BE USED UNTIL YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING.  NOTE, HAVING STRAIGHT EDGE RAZOR BLADE MAY BE IMPORTANT, SOME TIME USING IT LIGHTLY AROUND SEAM OF CASE BACK WILL LOOSEN THOSE THAT ARE “FROZEN”

HINT: MANY TIMES IT IS BETTER TO MOVE WATCH WHILE
HOLDING WRENCH IN PLACE VS TRYING TO MOVE WRENCH.

#1

NOTE CASE WRENCH. WE HAVE 50 OF THEM AND STILL
NOT ENOUGH. SOME CASE BACKS WILL BE CHALLENGING.

#2

AGAIN, NOTE HOW SHALLOW THE RIDGES ARE. BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL. USE
3 FOOT ADJUSTABLE. CHANGE FEET IF YOU HAVE POINTED FEET IN HOLES.USE
THE “HALF MOONS”THEY ARE WIDE AND  SEMI FLAT. GRAB MORE OF THE RIDGE.

#3

ANOTHER LOOK AT RIDGE STYLE. MADE FOR
MANUFACTURERS WRENCH. FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS IN #2, 

case-wrench.jpg (11171 bytes)case-wrench-2.jpg (6222 bytes)ofrei-504-SPRING-BAR-1.jpg (6730 bytes)

 

 

3- SCREW BACK CASES

USE QUALITY SCREW DRIVERS. IF THE SCREWS ARE TOO TIGHT, DO NOT FORCE
. GET SOME WD40 OR OTHER PRODUCT. I HAVE PRODUCTS IN MY TOOLS PAGE. APPLY AND LET SIT 24 HRS.


6 SCREW PIERCE. BE CAREFUL, IT HAS ALUMINUM SEAL YOU WANT
TO KEEP IT. TURN IT OVER WHEN RESEALING CASE


NOTE CENTER SLASH, USE KNIFE STYLE OPENER. LIKE THE OTTO FREI REDS

SCREW-DRIVERS.jpg (8590 bytes)ofrei-504-SPRING-BAR-1.jpg (6730 bytes)

 

 

4- SINGLE CASE SYSTEMS
* AT BOTTOMIS INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT VIERTNAM & THE SINGLE CASE SYSTEM

THESE ARE POPULAR IN VIETNAM AND LATER MILITARY WATCHES. THANKS TO WYLER THEN BENRUS FOR SUBMITTING A SINGLE CASE SYSTEM AND WINNING THE FIRST CONTRACT FOR THOUSANDS OF MARINE CORPS WATCHES. GOOGLE GOLDSMITHWORKS BENRUS WINS CONTRACT OR BULOVA FILES AND LOSES COMPLAINT.THEY ARE ALSO IN VINTAGETIMEREMADEINAMERICA.COM OR GOLDSMITHWATCHWORKS.COM, COMPLETE WITH OFFICIAL MIL CONTRACT DOCS.

1-piece-no-case-back.jpg (4924 bytes)

THE KEY TO OPENING A SINGLE CASE SYSTEM IS SIMPLY READING THIS:

A-WYLER STYLE

WYLER-AD.jpg (24799 bytes)

THE WYLER CASE HAS A BEZEL RING. UNLIKE OTHERS THAT SIMPLY HAVE CRYSTAL PLACED IN CASE. YOU WILL SEE THAT THE CRYSTAL, AS IN PIC ABOVE,WILL COME LOOSE. USE AN OTTO FREI STYLE KNIFE OPENER OR MY FAVORITE, A SINGLE EDGE RAZOR. BUY THESE IN CHEAPLY IN BULK AT PAINT DEPT IN HOME DEPOT. YOU WILL GO THROUGH A LOT OF THEM IF YOU MAKE THIS A I WANT TO DO HOBBY.,

1-  WITH POINTER AND THUMB FINGERNAILS, GRASP CROWN FIRMLY, THEN SWIVEL YOUR FINGER KNUCKLES TOWARDS CASE LIFTING YOUR NAILS AND CROWN , LIKE A SCISSORS ACTION.CROWN SHOULD PULL OFF. IF IT DOES NOT, THEN GRAB YOUR SPRING BAR  WITH “SHOVEL END”  NAMED “LARGE BEND FORK END” THE END PIECE THAT IS WIDE, PLACE SAID END PIECE UNDER CROWN, WHILE USING YOUR HAND TO COVER CROWN AND HOLD CASE –YOU DO NOT WANT THE CROWN TO GO FLYING– PUSH THE SHOVEL DOWN LEVERING THE CROWN LOOSE. I HAVE NEVER BROKE ANYTHING. IT WILL COME LOOSE.

2- PLACE RAZOR UNDER SEAM OF BEZEL RING, LIFT FROM BACK OF RAZOR FIRST. DO NOT PUSH DOWN TRYING TO LIFT, GO OPPOSITE THEN OPPOSITE AGAIN. THE . BEZEL WILL COME OFF

3- PLEASE, INVEST ION CRYSTAL PULLER. USE A CRYSTAL PULLER TO LIFT CRYSTAL. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ONE, USE RAZOR BLADE TO LIFT EACH SIDE GENTLY UNTIL SHE COMES OFF.

4- DIAL AND MOVEMENT DROP OUT WHEN TURN OVER. PLEASE, SAVE THE DIAL RING. IT LOOKS LIKE BEZEL RING, BUT FITS UNDER CRYSTAL OVER DIAL.

5- REVERSE TO INSTALL. ALIGN THE CROWN HALF STEM WITH MOVEMENT HALF STEM, MALE/FEMALE, PUSH IN CROWN IT WILL SNAP RIGHT IN. NO SEALS OUTSIDE OF CROWN. USUALLY NO TOOLS REQUIRED. BUT SOME CRYSTAL BEZELS NEED FORCE. WE HAVE WYLER BRASS BEZEL CLOSURES. FOURTH ITEM IS INEXPENSIVE CASE CLOSER THAT WILL USUALLY WORK.

6- NOTE: THIS S WYLER. 1928 TO 1975 – OTHER SINGLE CASES LIKE THOSE OF VIETNAM WAR, BENRUS , BULOVA, AND OTHERS. SAME WITH CROWN. YOU REMOVE IT LIKE THE WYLER, BUT NO BEZEL RING, UNLIKE THE ABILITY TO USE A RAZOR TO LIFT CRYSTAL, YOU MUST HAVE A CRYSTAL PULLER. YOU USE IT TO LIFT AND TO REPLACE THE CRYSTAL. ONE CROWN IS PULLED AND THEN CRYSTAL PULLED, TURN WATCH OVER OTHER HAND AND MOVEMENT WITH DIAL WILL COME OUT..   

CRYSTAL-PULLER.jpg (9512 bytes)OTTO-FREI-COM.jpg (9385 bytes)CASE-CLOSER.jpg (6167 bytes)ofrei-504-SPRING-BAR-1.jpg (6730 bytes)

 

 

5- SNAP BACK CASES

THESE CAN BE AS DIFFICULT AS ANY OTHER. SOMETIMES YOU A FEEL THAT THE CASE BACK IS NOT A SNAP-BACK. BUT IF THERE ARE NO INDENTS RIDGES  IT IS SNAP BACK, ALSO, SOME INEXPENSIVE WATCHES HAVE FALSE INDENTS..THAT IS FOR ANOTHER DAY.

SIMPLY USE THE RAZOR. CAREFULLY, MOVE IT AROUND THE SEAM WITH LIGHT PRESSURE. LOOK BETWEEN LUGS AND AROUND THE BACK TO SEE IF A MINOR FACTORY AREA IS T HAND. WHEN YOU  GET THE RAZOR INTO SEAM, LIFT UP BEFORE PUSHING RAZOR DOWN.

IT IT IS  STUCK, KNIVES AND THE LIKES WILL PROBABLY MARK THE CASE BACK. IT IS THEN THAT YOU WANT THE SPRING LOADED TOOL. SIMPLE TO USE. PLACE TOOL TIP INSEAM, PUSH DOWN. WATCH THE UTUBE VID.

* HISTORY

THIS BENRUS WATCH SERVED AS A PROTOTYPE FOR THE FAMOUS BENRUS U.S. GOV. ISSUED MIL-W-3818. WHILE YOU MAY VIEW THE MIL-W-3818 GOV SPEC SHEETS ON OUR SITES, IT WAS BENRUS WHO SUPPLIED THE MOST IMPORTANT INFORMATION AND SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE MIL-W-3818. TAKE A LOOK SEE AT THE PHOTOS AND INFO WE SUPPLIED. NOTE THAT THE SINGLE CASE WITH TWO PIECE STEM AND CROWN, PIONEERED BY WYLER WATCH CO. IN THE LATE 1920’S, IS EXACTLY LIKE THIS OFFER. AND NOTE THAT THAT THIS TIME PIECE IS A BENRUS FROM 1960.

THIS IS NOT A COINCIDENCE.

BULOVA PROTESTING TO THE MILITARY CONCERNING THE AWARD OF THE FIRST EVER VIETNAM MILITARY WATCH CONTRACT TO BENRUS!  BULOVA WAS OUT OF THE MIX AFTER BEING A MAJOR SUPPLIER FOR THE A-11 [AND OTHERS] IN WWII/KOREAN WAR.

A GIANT LEAP IN JUNGLE BUSTING SINGLE CASED WATCH SYSTEMS

A ONE YEAR TOUR OF DUTY “IN COUNTRY” – A PLACE CALLED “THE NAM”, MEANT A YEAR OF SWELTERING JUNGLE CONDITIONS AND MONSOONS.
GOVERNMENT ISSUED WATCHES HAD TO BE DESIGNED BETTER THAN EVER BEFORE.  OF ALL THE COMPANIES THAT SUBMITTED PROTOTYPES AND ASSISTED IN DEVELOPING CASE & MOVEMENT DESIGNS WAS THE SWISS BENRUS WATCH CO.  IN FACT, BENRUS WOULD MAKE/PROPOSE THE LARGEST CONTRIBUTION: A SINGLE CASED STEM DESIGNED TO RESIST THE ELEMENTS, BE DURABLE, AND TO LAST. THUS BENRUS BEAT THE COMPETITION & WAS AWARDED THE FIRST CONTRACT.

BENRUS WAS ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH THIS ENDEAVOR BY BUILDING A CIVILIAN WATCH THAT HAD NEARLY ALL THE CASING DESIGNS THAT THE MILITARY DESIRED LONG BEFORE THEY WERE REQUESTED. THOUGH   NEAR EXACT FEATURES FOR THE BENRUS MIL-W-3818 CAN BE FOUND IN BENRUS  MODELS DATING FROM THE LATE 1950′, IT WAS THE 1960 SINGLE CASE SYSTEM THAT WON THE BUCKS,,,

MODEL IS A 1960 DIVE QUALIFIED SINGLE CASED VERSION. ALSO- AT BOTTOM WE DEMONSTRATE THE SIMILARITY OF MILITARY ISSUE MOVEMENTS AND THE MOVEMENT IN THIS MODEL

MY FAVORITE SNAP BACK CASE OPENER

SPRING-LOADED-CASE-OPENER.jpg (4680 bytes)OTTO-FREI-COM.jpg (9385 bytes)
RAZORS WILL OPEN MOST SNAP BACK CASES. PERIOD. THOUGH, FOR SOME SERIOUS CASES OR THOSE TAMPERED WITH , THE # ONE TOOL WITH SPRING ACTION  IS A MUST. I USE OURS EVERY DAY. PLACE EDGE ALONG SEAM, I KEEP THUMB OVER CASE BACK IN CASE I SLIP, PUSH LIGHTLY DOWN,THE SPRING ACTION POPS PUSHING EDGE OF TOOL AND OPENING CASE BACK. I HAVE A UTUBE VIDEO FOR YOU. THE OTTO FREI CASE KNIVES ARE GREAT, BUT ANY ONE THIS SIZE WILL WORK. YOU MAY HAVE TO SHARPEN THE EDGES. I USE RAZORS. SOMETIMES I USE A KNIFE.

CASE OPENERS. THE BLACK 3 FOOT ON LEFT IS BEST. THEN NEXT. THE BLUE IS NICE TO HAVE. WILL OPEN 70% OF CASES. THE GOLD ONE.. WELL, IF YOU HAVE ANY TO LEFT. YOU DO NOT NEED. THE LAST HAS THE PRICE

ROLEX-OYSTER-CASE-OPEN.jpg (8245 bytes)ROLEX-OYSTER-CASE-BASE.jpg (2754 bytes)

ROLEX CASE OPENER WITH BASE. SCREW BASE INTO BENCH, THEN DROP OPENER INTO THE SLOT WHEN USING. . FROM 29 TO 80 BUCKS US. MAKE SURE IT HAS THE BASE. IF NOT YOU NEED A VICE TO MOUNT. VERY SIMPLE TO USE. NO INSTRUCTIONS NEEDED.

CASE-CLOSER.jpg (6167 bytes)

FOR SNAPPING CRYSTALS IN, BOTH PLASTIC AND GLASS, FOR CLOSING SNAP BACK CASES, AND FOR FITTING BEZELS SUCH AS WYLER.

SPRING-BAR-2.jpg (5747 bytes)

THE BEST SPRING BAR TOOL. THE REVERSIBLE END REMOVES SPRING BARS WITH FORK AND FOR THOSE WITH GO-THROUGHS -. THE HOLE FOR SPRING BARS GO ALL THE WAY THROUGH LUG — IT PUSHES INTHE SPRING BAR. BETTER SPENDING 8 BUCKS MORE THE HEAVY DUTY/ GO OTTO FREI WATCH SUPPLIES .

WHAT EVER YOU DO, DO NOT INVEST IN THE ABOVE TOOLS. THE SPRING BAR TOOLS THAT ARE  PLASTIC OR BLACK METAL, MOST ARE GARBAGE. THOUGH THERE ARE SOME STEEL ONES. IT IS SIMPLE TO INVEST IN THE BEST YOU CAN. AND IN ONE THAT ALLOWS FOR REPLACING THE TOOL TIPS. IN FACT IF YOU HAVE THE CASH, INVEST IN REPLACEMENT TOOLS , ESPECIALLY THE LARGE END PIECE WHEN FIRST INVESTING.
