      My sister has a longine quartz that need a new battery but you cant open the back to get to the movement, you have to go through the front. Does anyone have any videos, website or tips on how to remove the stem to get to the back?

        Hi Chaplin37,
        I don’t know of any videos but you may find something up on youtube if you put in some variations of “split stem removal” etc.
        We did cover split stem removal (if that’s what her Longines has) up here recently. You might find the thread helpful at http://clockrepairtips.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=313&hilit=split+stem

        Hope this helps!


          Hi All,
          I finally found this link that I may have referenced in my post about split stem. http://www.old-omegas.com/tool107.html will show how someone removed an Omega movement from a one piece case. It will also show close up of a split stem. Obviously you won’t need the Omega tool to remove crystal. Now as to ladies Longines quartz watch I have looked for awhile and see nothing about one with a split stem. Even searched longines spilt stem and found many movements that used them but none for quartz watches so might want to do more research or even post picture with caliber #. Hope this help.
