Belforte wrist watch

New postby brownsrplm » Sat Jan 18, 2014 5:17 pm

Anyone know anything about these watches? I picked this out of my watch box to wear this morning and didn't recall how I came about it. It appears to run well and I was looking over the back trying to figure out how to open it. It doesn't have the usual recess for a case knife and I didn't want to mar it up trying to get the back off.

Nice one Ray. The movement might come out the front of it . I think Benrus watches are like this.

Kevin,
I thought maybe that was the case, but if I pull the crystal it still has part of the bezel in the way and won't come out. On Benrus watches they have a ring that comes off with the crystal leaving the dial clear to pull out the movement (providing you have the stem turned in the right position).
