Looking for some help on how to remove the stem from a Seiko quartz movement Cal. 8223A. One screw beside the stem is "Tube for circuit block screw A" and the brass screw on the other side has a "to and fro" arrow marking and looks like a rate trimming screw. I've included a borrowed pic of a 8223A movement. Any ideas and help would be appreciated. Thanks all.

Push the crown all the way in then look for the indicated dimple poking out from under the edge of the top plate.
Press the dimple while gently pulling the crown/stem out of the watch...

Thanks for the info, Ancre-Steam 8^)

The stem slipped right out as I pressed the dimple down.

I knew it had something to do with a lever, like the old 5 series autos, but I couldn't even begin to imagine where it might be.

I found a service guide for the 8222A, 8223A, and 8229A but I couldn't tell from the pics where the lever might be. Your notes made it clear.

Thanks much again and I'll post some pics of the finished watch.
