I got this today. It doesn't look like a travel clock because there is no stand. It's running like a charm. What's interesting is that the raised part of the caseback with a coin edge rotates the dial. What's the purpose of the rotation? Anyone know the model or know what company might have made this? Any info would be helpful. Thanks

Can't figure out how to open the caseback. When I unscrew the coin edge piece, it separates the dial and case from the Bakelite square piece.

I got the winder off, and the only thing preventing me from taking the back off is the set button, which doesn't thread out. It changes the hands either way I rotate. I am wondering if I need to unscrew the small screw at the base.

From the very few vintage clocks I've seen the time set knob should just have a longish split shaft tube which is push fitted. It might simply be dirty, rusted, generally being stuck. Try to lube it first and gently lever it up using a pronged tool.
