Re: Remove the Crystal / Access from the Front

Thanks Luther for the confirmation and detailed steps. How about putting it back?

: Step 1. Pull out the crown. Some force is required as the force of
: the split stem jaws needs to be overcome.
: Step 2. Remove the crystal. A good technique is to blow air into
: the crown tube. A rubber air puffer works well, or compressed
: air at a low pressure also works.
: Step3. The movement will now lift straight out.

: Cheers
