    I just purchased a Bulova Accutron 214 on ebay that was sold AS-IS. I removed the locking ring but am having trouble separating the case back from the case body. Any suggestions?

    It's probably stuck to the gasket. I would just gently go around it prying it up at various points. But I'm no expert. It would be nice to see some photos of your new acquisition.

    The gasket would need replacing anyway by now. You are lucky not to have it fill the watch with black goo.

    Once the screw on ring is removed, there is a tab on the edge of the back. Slip a blade under this.
