I started collecting pocket watches about a year ago. Honestly, I know nothing about pocket watches. They remind me of my grandfather and I think they make great conversational pieces. The thing that is driving me nuts though is that I cannot get this thing opened! Does anyone know how to open this beautiful piece of History? ;)

    Thanks much Guys!!! You can set the time by the stem. I still cant get it opened though.

    The back of the Watch reads:
    BUREAU OF SHIPS
    U.S NAVY
    COMPARING WATCH
    N 5710- 1941
