    Sorry to hear that.They can be tricky especially if you don't have the right tool.most of the time you don't need it to unscrew.

    What you have is a hunter case watch. Here's a link on how to open it. It doesn't unscrew...

    Over being mad sent it back to the watch repair and left instructions to write down the movement number , Hopefully I'll have answers in a few weeks Thanks for the advice and links.
    The crystal does not screw off , it lifted off the base
