    For a seized up rotating bezel, fill up a sink with warm water, and turn the bezel submerged a few times. Watch needs to be water resistant obviously.

    The best way I have found to size a band with the pin and collar system is to use a dental pick with a hook on it. (found at walmart) its thinner than a normal pin pusher so it goes through the collar nicely and will push out the pins with very little effort. And the bend in the hook will catch the collar on the end so you don't loose the collar.

    I hate 5 ring natos. I recently received one in a trade. And I don't know if people are aware of this or not, but you can cut the stupid tail part off with the extra rings in it and it makes a perfectly awesome 3 ring nato.

    If your bezel becomes so incredibly tight that you're unable to move it you can use a 3-way caseback remover tool as an impromptu vise to grip the sides of the bezel and twist it until you're able to either remove it and grease it or free whatever obstruction is stopping it from rotating freely.

    I know from bitter experience having mangled 2 knives and a nice SKX case experimenting with other methods.
