    GA 110 chapter ring removal

    Hi Guys

    I am launching into my first mod. I would like to paint some Lume on the indices of my GA 110. I have been looking around for instructions on how to remove the chapter ring and the only way I can see to do it is to pop the glass out. I'm obviously not entirely chuffed about doing this so was wondering if anyone knows a better way?

    If popping the glass out is the only way does anyone have any advice for the best way to do it?

    Wow, joined 2 years ago and your 1st post - well done! The mod you contemplate is a proper complicated one! I'm almost positive there was a YouTube video some years ago on this, and the glass remains intact. On re-building any watch, it's almost universal that the glass is placed in first, and everything else then layered in behind it. So sorry I can't remember the name of the guy who did it, I'm almost sure 'angel' was part of the name but honestly, I'm getting to that age where I could easily have just made the whole thing up. Hopefully someone sensible will be along soon for you...

    Due to my low post count it won't let me post links to the glass removal/replacement videos I've found but they are posted by ECH EMH. It looks very simple to do but I'm guessing there some pro-tips out there for preserving the water seal.
