    BEZEL TOOL

    I had these come in from Amazon to nite they are for replacing bicycle tubes. I got them to remove bezels.
    I tried it on a couple of 33 cased Komanderskie's ........ WOW the results are amazing!!! it popped the bezels off the case like popping a beer top off with a bottle opener.
    Hold the watch down firmly on a solid surface with the bezel up,
    Hold the watch at the rear and place the tool at the front(see pic)
    push the tool in firmly under the bezel lip and push down on the tool.
    POP........ IT'S OFF!

    You guy's should try it...... This is the best tool I have found to remove bezels with out scratching!
    works for me.

    you get 3-5 tools, prices range from 5-12 dollars on Ebay many to choose from.

    Re: BEZEL TOOL

    A somewhat similar device (in the same shade of orange) is included in every Lego kit these days. I just tried it successfully on my forum project Slava homage, the Vostok 5/6 Mission commemorative (710 case, original bezel) and an early Vostok 24-Hour (Partner-style case) with vintage 'ashtray' bezel. The only watch that stumped it was a 1980s Antimagnetic whose bezel has never been removed. I'm reluctant to force it as it is one of my favourite watches with a perfectly functioning bezel.

    If you don't have any Lego enthusiasts in your house, then Google "LEGO Brick Separator".

    Re: BEZEL TOOL

    For some reason I think the Lego Brick Popper might be better than the LEGO Brick Separator.
    check the second video:

    Re: BEZEL TOOL

    Comrades my problem is not removing the bezel, it's putting it on. Is there a tool for that (except a time reversal machine with the removing tool)?

    Maybe you could modify/make a crystal press die? Hmm, thinking about it, it's probably a bad idea as the force these things generate are pretty high and if you apply too much pressure you can damage the crystal. I actually put a hairline fracture in my crystal from forcing a bezel on. I didn't realise it at the time as it was very small and hidden well out of view.much later down the line, I was cleaning the crystal with a cloth and it half shattered! I think I'd prefer having the feel and control of hand installing it..I've found this watch modding hi-jinx quite a steep learning curve, especially when working on the movement. (read that as poking around inside like the backstreet surgeon that I am) :D
