  1. Stay away from interfering with your watch. This is a job for the expert, that has the knowledge, the tools and years of experience behind him. Buy an old 'banger' of a watch for a few dollars and mess about with it. Dismantle a portion of it and then see if you can reassemble it wiyhout doing damage.
