... thanks for the reply. It would have been more straightforward if it were Autavia.

It's a Carrera from 1970s where the crystal is retained by a very thin bezel which is half recessed in the mid case. Because it's recessed, I cannot find a way to insert a bezel opener without damaging the mid case. Perhaps, the bezel is more for cosmetic reasons and the crystal can be removed without taking the bezel off from the mid case?

Any expert out there?
