I have a couple of 60’s CITIZEN timepieces, & yes, the snap on backs are very tight.

Have found using a fresh Stanley blade, whilst wearing a stout glove (on watch holding hand) is very effective (for me).

You will most definitely need a crystal press, with correct dies, to refit the case back in my experience.

Thanks, I'll try the Stanley knife and glove. Goggles too, probably. I worry about snapping the blade.

that makes me cringe i used a stanley doing some sound deadening on my old porsche 928 and slipped and took a massive gouge out the end of my right thumb, luckily the 928 got me to minor injuries for patching up very quickly 20 years ago, the nurse wanted to know what id been doing with a stanley knife...I pointed at the old prussian blue 928 in the car park and said, that did it. It was evil that car.
