All Calibers are different. If you look on the plate where the stem protrudes from the movement you should see a small button that has a dimple in it to prevent your tweezers from slipping when you push it down to release the stem.

After you get the stem out with the crown on it you then will need to hold the stem and rotate the crown counter clockwise to remove the crown. This should work for almost all watches.

Removing crown and reattaching arms


On most watches there is a very tiny screw next to the crown that you can turn to remove the crown.

Here is a tutorial on how to take apart watches with pictures to help you as well.

Hope this helps!

How to remove bezel and crystal on Swatch Irony Watch?


The crystal can be blown off by compressing air inside the watch. First the crown has to be removed carefully without breaking it from its shaft. This can be done by binding yarn behind the crown and pulling it while swinging the yarn around, almost like pulling a tooth. Once the crown is removed together with its shaft. Find a thin tube to fit into the crown's hole and which can fit to an air pump's adapter. A thin bicycle pump will do. Have a screen ready to catch the crystal. Once compression can be established inside the watch, gradually add more pressure until the crystal pops off. It may be necessary to hit the pump to pulse compressed air, but do it gradually and be prepared that the crystal will pop off with a bang. This is a risky process and the dial with arms may blow off if something goes wrong.

I hope you have Omega Dynamic?!

If yes, then the crown can be removed by appling slight pressure against the watch. The stem inside the watch is made of 2 pieces and the crown can be pulled out. But be careful, there are chances that the stem may break :-)
