The ETA caliber G10.211 is a Swiss “assembled” quartz chronograph movement with 4 jewels. This movement is part of ETA’s Fashionline group of quartz movements. This caliber is not considered to be a repairable movement and is largely found in entry level lower priced timepieces.
To remove the crown, look for the stem release hole on the movement near the crown There is a small arrow pointing to it. Putting the crown to date setting position should reveal a button in the hole that you can gently press with your tool to release the stem. Do this carefully and do not press too hard. If you damage the stem release mechanism, there doesn’t seem to be a way to fix it since it’s encased in plastic.
The metal plate on the G10.71A is just a thin cover with sticky adhesive. Below this metal cover you will find an plastic encasing that holds everything together.
This is what the movement looks like below the metal cover:
