    Fixing a dive bezel

    Does anyone know the best way to get the wire bar back under the bezel? I tried to adjust the bezel as it was one click off from being aligned. Is there a trick to it? Any tutorials you can point me to?

    Thanks!

    Some bezels have two metal pieces for the spring action, one that sits flat with little tabs, and the other is a wire that fits into the removable bezel part. Yours appears to have a bend at the end, so look at the underside of the bezel to see if there are small holes this fits into.

    I find Google invaluable for stuff like this - Google for pics of the watch, and you can often find pics of watches with bezels removed, etc.

    I agree with jonnieb. Also, I recently watched a video on youtube on a bezel replacement and it was very detailed. Can't find the link for it but do a search there.
