I thought this might be helpful for those of you who want to check whether your MC Amfibia is ready for swimming.



I have selected this one 3602/00411014, but all 58 mm case MC diver watches are similar.




First of all you have to unscrew the large ring which holds the grating (or a replacement ring)




Then remove the grating ...




... and unscrew the mounting of the glass.




Carefully examine the rubber gasket and the groove in the glass mounting. Remove foreign particles if any. When putting this part back, don't forget to tighten up all 8 screws! So many screws are necessary to distribute the pressure on the gasket. To achieve such a homogeneous distribution along the circumference, always start tightening up the opposite screws.




Remove all hands. Don't forget to protect the dial.




Now the dial is free and can be removed.




Pull the part indicated by the arrow (setting lever) a little to release the stem.




Check whether two gaskets are present, oiled and free of damage.
Assemble everything in the reversed order.




Now this beauty is ready for swimming.

Well, since there is no gasket in the cap, I do not think it is necessary, though it might help to improve the WR temporary. On the other hand, if you are incautious, you may damage the thread and the cap will become leaky.
