I have been reading up on replacing the 16570 bezel and have not had a ton of luck. I understand it is a larger undertaking than a rotating bezel GMT master or Sub because those references have a crystal locking ring under their bezels do protect the crystal from moving and gasket from being exposed or damaged.
So my question is: Does the 16570 have a locking/retaining ring for the crystal as well underneath? Or is 24hour-marked outer bezel also pressing the crystal in place underneath (all one piece)?
Would I need a pressing tool to put the new expii bezel on? Basically If removing the expii bezel puts the water-proofness (?) at risk then i do not want to attempt.
Any pictures of the Expii 16570 case with the bezel removed would be also very helpful/answer my questions. Spent the whole morning trying to locate a picture of this with no luck.
As you can see the bezel does not need replacing, but I have a source for less nice spare that I would sub out to keep my original looking nice. But obviously thats more elective and not something id want to take to have done professionally.
