I have an older Timex manual wind that is in a small diameter one-piece plastic case. The movement apparently comes out through the front of the case after the crystal is removed. I am able to remove the crystal, but cannot figure out how to remove the stem so I can lift out the movement. Could it be fitted with a split stem like some old Bulovas that lift out through the front of the case? I didn't want to be too forceful pulling on the stem.
Anyone have suggestions?
