Hello all - I searched the forums for "Bradley Pocket Watch" and finding nothing, I figured I would toss out my question - does anyone know how to open this case? An old friend asked me to see if I could get her mother's watch going, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to open this case. It won't unscrew and I don't see any slots/recesses for a case knife to pop open either the front or the back......

I am hoping that one of you has seen something similar and can give me some insight before I take my plumbers wrench to it...<kidding>... (maybe)..
Thanks in advance for any help !!!
Bob

Have you tried unscrewing it using one of those gooey underinflated rubber balls?

Hi,
This watch has really no value, if not sentimental maybe the case is in gold plated maillechort and the movement is as said above certainly a quartz.

Thanks all - I also thought it was a quartz movement, but it winds..... I have tried the rubber ball and the flat rubber sheets people use to open jar lids.. And I was kidding about the plumber's wrench. If I can't get it open, that is what I will tell my friend, but I was hoping for success....

Thanks - Bob
