    Take out the bezel and insert and gently push out the insert from the bezel if it doesn't move with fairly light pressure then soak for another 10 minutes.
    when you get it off then scrape the adhesive off with a plastic razor blade and wipe clean with a rag. That's it.

    Here is a link to find one of those stainless steel cups to soak the bezels in. This is a 3 piece set so I am guessing one will be the right size.
    I am sure there all made in china so they should all be about the same. I got mine at a nail supply and they were sold individually. They are handy to have.

    The plastic razor blades come in handy as well, another nice tool to have in the box.

    re: Removing Bezel Insert


    3M General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner 08984


    - contains the following chemicals:

    Hydrotreated Light Naphtha (Petroleum)
    Xylene
    Ethylbenzene
    Toluene
    Benzene

    Here is the PDF data sheet (SDS) for 3M Adhesive Remover

    https://multimedia.3m.com/mws/mediaw...9lxtD7SSSSSS--


    You may be able to find this or similar products at automotive paint supply stores, paint department or adhesives section of a hardware store.

    If you are unable to find the 3M Adhesive Remover, look for other products with a similar composition.

    - the chemical composition of a product is found in the 'SDS' or Safety Data Sheet
    -- simply google a product name and add SDS to the search words


    Naphtha or similar petroleum product is a common ingredient of adhesive removers.

    **Do not buy a spray can, buy a can of liquid remover


    Since some chemical products are banned or regulated in certain countries, a list of good alternatives is helpful.



    If you have found a good alternative, please post your recommendation.

    re: Adhesive Remover

    A glass jar is a good substitute if you can't find a stainless steel jar.

    Why does this website do the "you have to wait 10 seconds to post" I don't fall for it anymore but it gets redundant.

    I use drinking straws (yes the PLASTIC ones) with soft plastic ends you can get from the hardware store. you can custom cut them to size and they package better because there is no taper to them and are a smaller diameter so you can fit more in the same space. I use them for hands and small parts.

    While we are on the subject of watch parts storage, ...... I really like the individual coin collector holders you get off ebay for $7.00 - $10.00
    for 100 PC and a case, you can fit a but load of watch parts into this. I mainly use them for hands , faces and calendar wheels.
