When I saw this thread, I thought "now that title has bad news written all over it..."

More benign than I thought..

Did you get it apart?

I believe the correct tool is called a case knife. The guys over at timezone could probably be of help and give specific instructions on removing the caseback as well as maintenance.

Some movements can only be held at certain positions, and will be damaged if held incorrectly.

No. I can't seem to get it and i don't want to force it and break something.
