    Seiko SNZH Bezel Insert Removal

    Hi guys,

    A bit stumped as to how to remove the bezel insert without damaging anything. I've read a few different things and it seems like lighter fluid is the way to go? (droplets into the bezel channel to loosen the glue).

    I've managed to insert an exacto knife in between the insert and the bezel and have already made a few marks on the bezel edge (inside edge).

    Any other tips??? I'm too afraid of causing any more damage.

    Any help appreciated

    Thanks guys.

    p.s. first post

    Take the following advice at your own risk.

    I discovered this by accident while cleaning my bezel. Remove bezel gasket from bezel. Place bezel in hot water for a few mins. The water was hot but not hot enough that I couldn't place my hand in it. That loosened up the adhesive I was able to remove the insert way too easily.

    Oh yeh, to 'repair' the scratches I made to the bezel would some metal polish work? They should be fairly shallow marks...
