Clock removal from a 412

I want to sort out my faded wood finish on my 412 dash, but i don't want to remove the whole dash.
How do i get the clocks out. I can't get a good look up behind them to see how they are held in.

...there is a pot of gold In the 4 years i've owned my 412 i've heard many stories and legends about another 412 residing somewhere in the midlands, however the exact location was always vague, and many hours of driving down country lanes always lead to disappointment.
