            I have to say thank you... this post give me the power to open a watch my first time. I just opend my new Ap Diver to regulate the movement. I unscrewed all the backscrews. moved the "regulate screw" 3 pieced into the - and lubricate the O ring and the complete caseback with some oilspray. After that i screwed it so hard down as possible. Do you think its still waterproof. I think its even tighter than bevore. Sorry for my bad english but my hart beats even faster than my hands shaking after that xD.

            btw. The movement was silver. I ordered the watch with an sw200. i just thought this movement is bronze.

                  I hate opening up watches. The movement retaining screws give me the most headache. I get infuriated trying to put the screw and washer type piece back into place! Any tips for this?

                    @hustlehard a small screwdriver, tweezers, a steady hand and lots of patience.

                          some folks have created a tool using a PAM strap screw tube. Get the tube and dremel one of the ends to fit the screws.

                            Another option is using a 3mm screwdriver and dremel it, works better imo than the PAM tube as you can use more force, have more grip than on a tiny tube.

                                Excellent in depth and informative post. Thank you

                                If I wanted to line up the screws on the top bezel because the rep I receive 2 screws are slightly out, would I need to follow the same process? (Step 1 - 3) ?
