This Seamaster is driving me crazy...

I believe this movement comes out the back of the case (judging from others I've messed with). But this thing won't budge. I've gotten case screws out. I've tried pushing on both sides and wiggling it or turning it. Nothing! Anyone else have this happen? Ideas?

It is a long time since I've worked on one of those but from memory the whole movement needs to be rotated until it reaches the sweet spot.
I'm not sure that is the case here - there are protruding pieces from the tube the stem goes through that seems to preclude rotating the movement (if you look at the movement shot).

These movements have a pin diagonally opposite to where the case clamp is, it does come out the back because it will not go through the front, lightly press on the 11 o'clock side of the dial and it should just come out.
