    Broken Invicta Bezel

    I just recently ordered an Invicta watch and couple of days ago the bezel "unglued" itself for the watch. Yesterday I krazyglued it back but today it unglued itself once again. Should I use somekind of special glue for the metals?

    Are you reallly meant to GLUE the bezel to the rest of the watch????
    Sounds dodgy, to say the least!
    IMo most bezels are pressed or held by screws. But glued?

    You can always try a cyano acrylate glue, also called Super glue.

    Use the glue on the shipping box when you send it back. Seriously, have a look at various watch websites and you'll see all the problems with Invicta's quality control and customer service.

    If you just recently purchased the watch as you say, you should go back to the place you bought it and ask for an exchange.

    Mighty Mendit is useless, perhaps Gorilla Glue.

    It is the diver/submarine watch with blue bezel ring. It got unglued, I think that they cheaped out on the glue because when I turned it, I only seen 2 glue spots. I bought it from eBay.

    Aha, you mean the Bezel INSERT!
    Superglue. But you need to clean the surfaces really well, last cleaning with Acetone or 99% Ethanol. I would also (before the clean) roughen the mating surfaces slightly.
    Superglue is expencive - hence only 2 glue spots?

    I am guessing that his bezel insert got detached not actual bezel.

    I would have thought crazy glue would do it. Maybe one of those epoxys that you mix 2 different ones may be better? How does Omega SMP bezel insert get mounted on the bezel? Using a glue? or does it have a some kind of special feet that clicks onto the bezel?
