Title: Hermetic: case back
Post by: serge on December 19, 2009, 09:30:21 am
Howdy,

I'd like to remove the Hermetic case back. What type this back is: snap-on or screw-on? I have tried to use thin-bladed knife but w\o success.

 :( :( :( looks like a snap on--no tool notches around back. sometimes they are really tough to remove.see if a local watchmaker can do it. with a knife you CAN hurt yourself--from MY experience!  good luck, JON

Thanks a lot - will give them to the watchmaker! They are the first watches I'm facing such a problem with. Yeah, Zodiac - are quite unique watches  ;D

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
