Just got this watch, and for the life of me, I can't crack the case. Tried multiple wrenches, but it won' budge. There does seem to be some gasket but it's not even. oping it's not x thread, but does look it.
Anyone familiar with this case.... Case Serial # is 1-274019.
thanks in advance
Could be that the gasket has "melted" and essentially glued the caseback to the case. Have you tried using a bench style opener? Like the one pictured below? I got a cheap one (~$70) off of Aliexpress and it works very well for those difficult to open cases that a rubber ball or jaxa style opener can't open.

Success. Ended up buying the https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MS3CHP3?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_d… . Took some time setting up but gave me the leverage needed. This case has a large surface gasket that broke clean from the back, but I guess was doing a really great job of holding the back tight.
