Open Question. (stem removal).

Recommended Posts

When removing the setting/winding stem from a movement is it best to remove when stem is in the fully  pushed in position or fully out/set position.

fully in.  Some movements, especially Seiko, don't allow you to release the stem in anything but fully in.

Tip that I picked up.  If the stem release is a press button but that button is set in a slot, use a screwdriver to release the stem.  The outside of the slot prevents the screwdriver head going too far down, causing damage.

A gentle tug on the crown, as you press the push bolt will enable you to remove the stem without pushing to hard on the push bolt.

Depends on the movement,as I mentioned in another post have the stem pulled out on a 2824-2 as its less likely for the clutch to slip out of position.
