New (Second-Hand) Watch - How Do You Think The Back Opens?

Hi,

I've only been wearing my new-to-me watch for less than a week, and the urge to open the back is starting to get the better of me. I think it should unscrew, but thought it would be as well to ask before exerting any pressure.

Here's a general view of the back ...

And a couple of close-ups showing the join. There are small flats by the lugs and by the crown, but not opposite the crown.

Any ideas? I think the knurling may be just decorative, as it also runs round the bezel.

Finally of course, I can't resist posting the face of my new toy. Its a Rotary automatic, and think it must be quite modern given the Japanese movement, but I have no history.

Thanks in advance, Tony S

Resist the temptation,even if you don't **** the case up you still run the risk of introducing some crud into the movement unnecessarily. Unless it's not running right and you think you can fix it I'd leave it alone - it's not as though you can't see the movement already.

I think that is probably the best advise

Cheers guys. I was hoping to nudge the adjuster a little, see if I can get it running a bit better than the +10 sec per day that I have at the moment. However I'll take your cautions on board, and won't have at it until I have the right facilities, like some form of non-marking fixture for pressing the back on.
