    Ploprof bezel

    Hello!


    I just found again, that after hard cleaning, the bezel doesn't work smoothly


    I would like to remove the bezel. I don't know if I should follow the tutorial like for the Rolex. Knife at 13, a little bit hard and up, and POP! it's out.


    I hope you can help me


    Best regards

    I guess then you never took it to a watchmaker or to Omega after describing the problem back in February: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f20/pro...of-645067.html

    So did you find any debris or any issue with the ball bearings after taking the bezel off?

    Right, I didn't visit the Omega shop or any other watchmaker. Why? Because after the hard wash with hot water, the bezel was turning perfect! But now... again the problem.

    I didn't find nothing, maybe a little bit dirty. I will clean it and let's see if the problem is gone

    Oh well, perhaps you dislodged some debris whole removing it and it will turn freely once you put it back on. Good luck with that, please post pictures.

    Good stuff! So the bezel is turning without issue now? I recall that you've been diving with it before. Who knows, perhaps there were some particles from the water or sand that just fell out when you removed the bezel, or just the enteral dirt build-up. Kudos for attempting this and getting it sorted. Also nice to see that the modern PloProf indeed has the ball bearing ratchet system like the old Seamaster 600.

    Thanks for posting that.
