    Need help with unknown type of case back

    I've never come across this kind of case back notch before.
    There seems to be no ledge under the back I can use to lever the back off.
    Grateful for any help.

    I wonder if there is a notch on the case back somewhere but whoever put it on last didn't line the notches up.

    Can you feel round for a notch on the back with a fingernail?

    just to get the obvious out of the way can we assume ...

    ... the back via the case notch in the lower right of the shot has been tried with a decent case knife.

    ... sticky ball or similar in case it turns out to be a screw on back (and that you know your righty tighty from your lefty loosey) - doubt there would be a notch were the caseback screw on but it is not impossible.

    worst case (pardon the pun) superglue a bolt to the back to get yourself some leverage. acetone or similar will remove it later.

    Thank you. Very possible. Unfortunately the case design has a ridge all the way around, so it's impossible to check.

    Thanks guys. Bergeon blade was too large.
    I could see the joint through the opening and used a small screwdriver blade to put pressure on the back.
    It popped off. It was gaining almost two minutes a day. Down to nine seconds now. Good enough. :)

    You think super glue would do the trick,Id say it would pop straight off,the very little bolt not the case back.
