    Women's Seiko 2206-0010 crystal replacement

    I am planning an attempt at replacing a crystal on a women's Seiko 2206-0010. It is my mother's watch, given to her by my father who has passed away so it has sentimental value to her. The replacement crystal is in the attached photo. It has the stainless bezel already part of the crystal so does this mean it screws on to the case? Everything I have watched on replacing crystals show the crystal without bezel being pushed out once the movement is removed. Haven't seen a video of this type being replaced. Can anyone provide some info on this for me?

    I am guessing this will still need to be pressed out with the movement removed but that instead of just the crystal being pushed out, the crystal/bezel combo pushes out. Unfortunately, there is very little out there on vintage women's Seiko work.

    Check Seiko's casing guide. These are different versions. One or more should show how to install the crystal for your watch.

    Thanks, I'll take a look at those and see if I can make sense of them.

    Why don't you give it to a watchmaker to be installed. This type of work require quality press and dies, and plus experience which you may not have.
