    A little help? Chopard battery change question.

    Thanks for looking. A friend of mine has asked me to sell this watch for her, and my first hurdle is that the battery needs changing. OK, say I, let's have a look. It's a Choppard Happy Diamond watch, where the movement is in a separate case, within the main case, so that it moves around. If that makes sense! It's nice - all white gold and small diamonds, but can I get outer case open? Can I hell.

    The outer case seems to be one piece, no screw back. Nothing between the lugs. The case back is crystal, and there seems to be no thread to remove/unscrew it. Anyone know?

    Or... should I hit it with a hammer, remove the diamonds, and sell it as stones/metal?

    Does the bezel pop off?

    Nice suggestion, but nope - the bezel is part of the case, and the diamonds are fitted to it. Any other ideas?

    Not much info on the web, but I think that will be a snap on caseback. Possibly the slot for the case knife will be between the
    lugs.

    if you look at the side of the case is there a very thin slot where you can put a knife blade?, IME i have found cases with an almost invisible thin slot in the side to open them
