    1. Use the blue rectangular tool to unscrew the back cover
    2. Use sharp pointy object to push in the arrow indicating hole and gently and carefully unscrew and pull out crown

    Theres a white plastic cover, mainly to hold the battery and movement in place, comes right out.

    That's what popped out of my gearbox ages ago! The end to the left was the issue.

    Also, Wished you had taken more pics of the carbon fiber dial.

    I assume if it had been reinstalled with the dial upside down it would still work and then be basically a gearbox with the knob in the more traditional 3:00 position...

    Then he could sell it on ebay as an "ULTRA RARE UNIQUE CUSTOM GEARBOX ONLY ONE LIKE IT IN THE WORLD $27K BIN!!!"

    For the white one, I recently had the battery replaced, so I wanted to see how I could do it myself one day.

    For the titanium, I bought it through, and unfortunately I kind of overlooked the screw-down crown, it was threaded/stripped so when I tried screwing it back down, it wouldnt. I didnt notice at the time of sale...long story short I had to replace the crown

    Haha if only so, however its not possible because the dial is one whole piece with the movement assembly, and theres only 1 opening where the crown would go in to adjust the time, which is the 9 o clock position
