Removing the Movement
As with any finely made item, handling a watch is best left to professionals. If the manufacturer and model number are not on the dial, which they usually aren’t, individuals must remove the movement from its casing. To do this, professionals are able to effortlessly pop the movement out of the case by locating a small rounded indentation near the bottom of the dial. Make sure to avoid forcing a tool into the grooved area when removing the movement. If any difficulty is encountered, it is best to take a watch to a professional. Anyone buying a watch through an online marketplace such as eBay, should simply ask the seller for the movement manufacturer and model number if applicable.
