Help my Breguet 5177

Recommended Posts

Leslie

This is my Breguet 5177, MKS Factory V2 with Miyota 9015, which I want to regulate.

I think this is a front/top loader, and I had taken the front bezel/crystal off:

But now, I don’t know how to take the movement out of the case. Is the stem a two-piece split type? If so, I can pull it out by some long-nose pliers.  But if the stem is not of the split type, I might break the stem by pliers!  Please advise! 
Thanks in advance.

Can I ask why you would prise open the front cover to get to the regulator which is under the back cover?? Asking for a friend. 

Also my friend asks why  would you take a movement out of a watch just to regulate it. 

Also when you have bought a Skrippol cupboard from IKEA do you find you have loads of screws and bits of wood left over?? 

Do you always put Diesel in your petrol car?

A top/front loader watch case usually has no back cover.  So, the only way to take the movement out is by opening the watch from the front (the dial side).

God I hate top load watches.  Split stems suck.

I don't know how that is built but it certainly looks like a top load.

Thanks for your idea, my friend.

I started to doubt about why it has to be a top load.  I checked again if there is any slit showing the existence of a back cover, using a10x loupe. No, not a sign! But, I still gave it a try by prying the bottom of the fluted case band, using a flat-tip 1.2mm screwdriver.

Whoops! It does have the snap-on back cover — there is no lip to pry up, just use one lug as the lever fulcrum to pry it up!
