Hi Tim:
Seiko watches are fairly valuable. I've had one of the dive watches for close to 40 years with zero maintenance needed.
Unless you really know what you're doing, if it was me, I'd be taking it to a really watch repair person.
It's worth it, unless the watch is of no value to you.
But that's just my opinion.
Cheers.

How do i remove face of interchangeable watch?


This is called BEZEL you want to lift off. Take watch case opener (or just a pocket knife), insert the blade between case and bezel, then carefully pry up bit by bit, going all around the case. Make sure you are pressing blade in while prying up the bezel. This will not let knife to slip and scratch the watch. Rate me, plz.

Navitimer 2 rotating bezel has gone very stiff to turn how can i free it up?


This depends on what exactly is causing the problem. If the bezel is bent from a sharp blow it would have to be replaced. It could be there is dirt under the bezel. To clean this there are two possibilities. If your bezel has screws around the outer edge they will need to be loosened or unscrewed to remove the bezel. These are small screws so be careful you don't loose them. The bezel should then lift off. Clean it with mild soap and water and dry it well. Be careful of the bezel spring. it is easy to break the little fingers. Wipe off any dirt on the case and set the bezel spring and bezel back on the case. Use Red locktite on the screws and reinstall them. If you have markers on the bezel that come off when you remove the screws be sure you keep track of them and the screws that went with them.

If your bezel does not have screws but fake ones then the bezel should be removed by a qualified watchmaker because the bezel could be bent or damaged when removed.

Hope this helps.

How to change bezel on Rolex Datejust


The bezel is secured by a Teflon gasket. To remove the bezel I would use a watch knife and gently press it in between the bezel and the case. Make sure you go straight in and it might not be a bad idea to use a layer of plastic around the knife so it doesn't leave marks. Also, do not use a widling motion. GO STRAIGHT IN. This will also prevent damage to the case and bezel. Repeat this several times working your way around the bezel. Be sure you don't continue to apply pressure with the knife once the bezel begins to come up as you don't want to damage the Teflon seal. Once you have the bezel out you will need to replace the Teflon seal the exact same way it came off on your replacement bezel and press back into place.

Taking the glass from my watch


Rolex glasses are held in place by the bezel ( ring surrounding the glass ). Bezel must be lifted off first in case if the glass must be removed. Rolex bezels are friction fitted and are very tight. Usually special tools are used for bezel lifting, but in skilled hands the watchmakers knife can do the job as well (inserting the blade between the bezel and case and slowly prying up all athe way around).
In most cases the bezel still holds the glass when lifted off the case. To release the watch from bezel ring you will need a special press with dies as you will need it for refitting glass and bezel on to the case.
I would advice to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for help, because without proper tools it is allmost impossible to remove and reset Rolex glasses without damaging them.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Replace bezel for omega seamater


I would recomend taking it to an independent watchmaker. It should only be $15, $30 to make the change.

Most bezels are pressure fit. Using a small jewelers knife to pry the bezel from the case is how most bezels are removed.

My friend is a watch maker and he has a special tool that removes the bezel however he told me he only uses it when he has customers watching. Because the old knife looks pretty brutial, but works better.

Change ******** Anne Klein watch


Your watch comes with interchangeable bezels, not faces. Bezel is a ring or rectangle (depends what shape your watch has) surrounding a glass.
All bezels are mostly friction fitted,so, to remove your bezel you need to use a strong knife blade and press it between the bezel and the case. The bezel should lift up.
To get the bezel back you have to press it into place.
For changing the strap you have to turn watch upside down and using the knife or lug tool try to squeeze sprigbar end out of the watch lug. Sprinbar is the piece which holds a strap attached to watch. The end of springbar you will find exactly where the strap is attached to watch. Push it inwards and it must come out. The rest is like 2x2.
Good luck.
