picked this up at an auction. Took a chance as no one bid on it. I can not figure out how to open it up. Appears to have a rolled edge on the back side but to try to undo that would really mess up the clock. Any ideas?

You need to remove the nut for setting the hands. It can be unscrewed by holding the arbor with needle nose pliers and turning the nut counter clockwise. Then you need to remove the two nuts on top of the label. Now you should be able to lift off the movement cover and service the movement.

I removed the nuts and the screws from the works all the nuts did was allow me to remove the label plate on the back. The two screws were what held the "can" to the wooden case. I cannot get the glass off the tine case. It appears there is a rolled edge that captures the rear can to the bezel. No way to get it to come apart.

Turns out there was a very small slot between the bezel and the glass that allowed me to pry up a ring around the glass that in turn released the face. Then I could remove the hands and extract the works. After all of that I found the transformer was dead (open)... all that for nada,,,
