Hi Everyone.
This is my first post. I have just started learning how to rebuild vintage Seiko watches. I'm having trouble trying to figure out how I remove themovement from this 6602-7040 from the case. Taking the watch back off and removing the stem is not a problem. But the movement does not fall out of the case. I also noticed that there is a notch under the bezel so it appears I could take off the bezel (last photo in the gallery).

Here is the gallery...

Before I start guessing I was hoping someone could offer some assistance.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks for your first bit of help. Ok so the screws are out and the movement rotates around. But it still does not fall out. Do I have to remove the bezel and crystal and pull it out the front?

I figured it out, the case back gasket was holding the movement in place. All is good, it is out.
Thanks!

Thanks for the info on the gasket. I'm looking forward to being able to rebuild one of these. Currently cutting my teeth on a 7s26. I'm working on the assembly of the movement. When I get this down I then have to figure out the 'black art' of oiling!
