Question about Watches
This watch isn't running - the front crystal snaps off readily but I don't see any way to open the back (it doesn't have a slot to insert a tool). The back of the case has the logo along with 1888 and the words: Swiss Made Waterproof Automatic Antimagnetic Incabloc and also, very faintly underneath 1510 A.
This is a circular watch. Since the hole for the winding stem is completely contained within the side (that is, the opening doesn't communicate with either the front or the back) I assume you may have to pull the stem out and the movement would be removed from the front?
If there is a book that one can purchase that provides instructions on opening different types of watches I would be interested in it. Thanks.
I would suggest taking this watch to your local Jeweler, a mom and pop Jeweler if there is one close to you and have them look at it. They most generally don't charge anything to look at it. Then they could give you an estimate if needed, to fix it. Without seeing this watch it's hard to say however automatic, have you tried gently rocking it back and forth, some of these watches do not wind up just wearing them with the movements of your arm keeps them ticking.
