I got 3 dollar watches and I want to take the movement from a New Haven compensated watch. I know they were cheap watches in their day, not really meant to be repaired. I finally figured out the stem has to be removed to get it out of the case. I'm a newbee and I picked this one to experiment on as my first watch repair. How is the stem removed? I have added 2 pics of where I think I need to get the stem out. I see a piece of "U" shaped metal in the top hole and there is a pin in the lower hole. If I pull the stem up, the pin moves up towards the stem. So does the "U" shape piece you see, Any ideas? look at the pics.
