    103st bezel removal

    Searched high and low, but didn't find any definitive answers. The 103 friction bezel "snaps" on, correct? Is it relatively easy to remove, or does it require specialty tools? I am replacing the black bezel with a stainless Sa friction bezel and would like to 'DYI' if possible. Thanks!

    Ideally, you would use something like this bezel remover below (they are expensive). The other end of the spectrum would be a case knife, but there is a huge risk of scratching the case using one of those. There is very little clearance between the case and the bezel. I would have a pro do it. Just curious, where did you get the stainless friction bezel?

    Thanks for the info. I wanted to be sure it simply "popped" off like most friction bezels and didn't require anything unusual.

    I ordered the bezel from Sinn, through Watchbuys.

    Just wanted to say, I'm liking the St SA bezel on 103 ST look
    If you don't mind my asking, what was the cost of the bezel from Watchbuys?

    155.00 plus shipping... The proper bezel is discontinued and it didn't sound like they had a big surplus.
