Dismantling a Master Time

I own a plastic (sorry) and quartz (brrrr) Master Time that I would like to take service. There is an excuse for having this very model: Regularity sections in historic rallyes are timed to the second. And time needs to be perfect over 24hrs. The good news is that I will mount it on the dash as they are intended. Together with a Monte Carlo.

Anyway. If I open the back and loosen all the screws that I see (5+3) I can not take anything apart. I want for instance be able to lube the bezel. But at this stage I cannot even change the battery (brrrr).

Any tips??
