    Hello Bob,

    No, the jewel I refered was the type that is directly pressed in the plate without screws, like a bushing – only the cap jewel is put in place over it with a screwed brass part… Sorry I am not that good with descriptions – next time I will remember that pictures worth a thousand words and take some.

    But well, I tryed removing the jewel the same way I would remove a bushing – hitting with a stake – and I got it out without damage.

    This watch gave me a lot of headache but at the end I successfully put it in working order.

    Thank you anyway!
