Via the case back.  Through the glass tends only to be monocoque cases (one piece, all the same material).  As your case back is stainless and the case gold plated, they have to join somewhere

Ah good thinking. I kept looking at the searock and dimbo here thought it was all one. THanks for the help.

Makes perfect sense.

Plot thickens a bit.....split crown is mentioned on the net , so if I was really really brave which I'm not ,pull the crown hard to split the stem and use the space where the crown was to lever off the back.?. 

Seems as though the battery change is an issue judging by net comments.:(

Just get a rubber ball and open the case back. Or a case knife in case it's a snap off case back.

Some of the "waterproof" Roamers are a sort of push fit and are opened by pressing the crystal through to the back. They made dies to use with a press to open and close them.

If you hold the gold plated case between your fingers then push on the crystal, the crystal and steel case will come away from the bezel. Then stem is a two piece and can be pulled out with a little force. The the crystal can be removed and the movement will just fall out of the steel retaining case. I can show with pictures tomorrow.

I do not have the bezel just the movement and back case so after  you have pushed on the crystal to release the bezel, you should have this :

Next pull off the crown from the two part stem, this may take a little force.

The crystal and inner ring should be able to be lifted off with your fingernail, they won't be tight.

The movement should now drop out of the case back.
