Hello Tmac,
I use one of these to unscrew those stubborn pocket watch cases. http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Rubber-Vacuum-Pocket-Watch-Hand-Held-Case-Opener-/310544016336?pt=Pocket_Watches&hash=item484ddda3d0. It’s inexpensive but effective. Good luck :)

I wish you well
Jim

Jim:

I ordered the tool. I’m beginning to think that someone stripped the threads to the point that the bezel wouldn’t stay on and just glued in it in place. I hope that’s not the case and I hope your recommended tool works. Otherwise, I’m looking at possibly cutting the bezel off. Is there anyway to get the stem out so that I can drop the movement out of the back? Anyone?

Thanks!
tmac
