Hello and Good Day,

I have a Movado 84-25-811.4 in which I would like to replace the movement.
I have a spare movement and I have questions on the removal from a watch.

It appears the movement needs to come out from the front, crystal side.
I do not want to exert any pressure and it does not want to be removed from the back.

I do have a press.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
Garry

From the pictures you have provided, it would appear as though there is not a front, removable bezel to allow the movement to come out through the front. It would appear as though there is a separate, removable black plastic case adapter ring surrounding the movement. That should come out if you lift upward on the ring, over by the stem. Then, if you insert a pin in the hole where you see the arrow, and press down, the stem should pull out. Then the whole movement should come out. If you get that far, you'll need hand removers, you'll need to locate the dial screws so you can get the dial off, and by then I hope you are not beyond your depth!

Hello Doug and thank you for the reply.

I measured the face at 19mm and the back opening at 17mm so I knew the movement with face and hands would not come out the back.

I easily removed the stem and crown.

After further checking, I noticed the case could be split.
After doing this, the movement was easily removed.

Being fairly new at this, I have never seen this before.
I will replace the o-rings and use a silicone lube to try to maintain some sort of water-proof resiliency.

Thank you again for the courteous reply.
Garry

I apologize if this is duplicated as I seem to have some difficulty posting.
