Pocket-knife – check. Tape – check. Steady hand – check. Large slice of courage – check. If you’ve ever tried to change a conventional rotating bezel, you’ll know the feeling – and the drill. Oh-so-carefully slide the knife edge under the bezel after taping over every exposed case surface and start to lever gently. Slip. Take a chunk out of any combination of the case, the bezel or your hand. Swear. Give up and pour large whisky and forget about the stupid idea.
Formex may not be able to help you with your current watch bezels, but they’ve come up with a nifty way of changing the bezel on their new white dialed FORMEX REEF Automatic Chronometer 300M.
