What 3 screws? Give me: Make, model, all the numbers on case back. Explain in detail what 's wrong. Where screws are/were located and so on.

it's not much harder then normal push pins, just a little trick..push the pin out, doesn't matter which way. You will probably have to pull it out with pliers once you get it started.
once that pin is out, the band still won't come apart. There is another pin, a tube actually that the other pin went thru. it connects the center links. to remove it, you have to first remove the outer links. to do this you push them inwards, toward where your wrist would be if you were wearing it. (the links are actually two pieces-the center 'snake-skin' piece, and the outer bars. the outer bars are connected behind the center piece) the outer bars are what you push inward, they will pop out once the first pin is out.
Now you will just have the center piece connected to the adjacent center piece. That second pin (the tube) will just about fall out if you turn the band on its side. Now the bracelet will come apart.
To put back together, just line up the to center pieces, slide in the tube, then put the outer links in from behind the center piece (this actually locks the tube in place) then put in the long pin.
Ideally it will slide in halfway easily, then carefully tack it in fully. if it doesn't get in halfway jiggle the links and tap lightly. Don't use too much force until it's past 2/3 inserted or you will bend the pin.

SOURCE: Hi i just got an
I have had the same problem with one of my SANIIIs, As you have probably figured out, there are two small screws that are part of this assembly, lower one is the pivot point, upper is the latch. There are also very small rubber bushings (upper & lower) in the pivot of the crown protector, if they are worn it will present side to side movement or "slop" they need to be replaced in this case (I Just went through this on an older Valjoux 7750 SANIII - same problem, latch would not stay closed), you can order the part from Invicta or take from a donor watch in the mean time (Invicta will take several weeks to months to fulfill a part order) The upper screw goes through a small cylinder or cam, there is a little (very little - but it is there) to move that cylinder outward towards the upper pusher or top of the watch. After you loosen the top screw (loose not remove) you can adjust this play w/two precision screwdrivers, one to tighten the upper screw one to lever the cylinder toward the top of the case by leaning one screwdriver w/ just a slight pressure against the crown and the cylinder to widen the area between the pivot screw and the latch cylinder. Don't overtighten the screws to try to add friction to the assy - the threads & heads are fragile, you can damage the case or strip them - or worse snap the head off. Hope that helps.
