The best tool to do it is watchmakers knife, but any proper knife with hardened steel blade can do the job. Make sure the blade is NOT flexible.
Check carefully the sides of your watch and you will notice the groove. Place knife blade into that groove and press it in. At the same time try to make a scooping turn to lift the caseback. Usually there must be underlayed caseback as well and it opens exactly in the same manner.
Make sure you do all this carefully and do not let the blade to slip or your watch will end up with nasty scratches or even damaged movement.
That job isn't a big deal, but requires some skill, so, BE CAREFULL.
Don't forget to rate, please.

Pull the wind knob out...it takes a firm pull on mine. You will hear it click, then you have room to pull the movement out towards the hinge. Then close when done, and push the wind handle back in.
At one oclock the lever is pulled out about 1/4" then you can set the time, when finished, push the lever back in.
Hope this helps...george

The back screws off.
Turn it Counter clockwise.
The numbers you need is the actual serial number off of the movement not the case.
We then can provide you the production information on your particular run of antique pocket watch.
Hope this tip helps.
