Tools required:
Case Knife
Tweezers


First, you need to remove your bezel.

The best tool for this job is the case knife. The case knife is thin at the edge, but it is not sharp. This thin/not sharp combination should make it easier to avoid injuries, both to you, and your watch case.

In this photo, the watchmaker is using the case knife to remove a case back. You will use the case knife in the same way, but under the bezel.

Inspect the bezel retainer spring. These work best when they can lie flat. Here is an example of a bezel spring that is not able to lie flat. Use your tweezers to correct the spring, by gently bending.

Try the bezel spring in the bezel groove.
The spring will work best if the corners are down in the groove, and the flats are visible. Again, you can use your tweezers to fine-tune your retainer spring.

When you are satisfied with the shape of the retainer wire, try to install the bezel. Press it on, and give it a slight twist at the same time.

.
.
.
.
.
Inspect the bezel. Is it on all around? Here is an example of a bezel that is seated only half-way around. Check for a gap between the bezel and the case.

.

.
.
.
If your bezel will not seat properly, find out why! Usually, the wire retainer needs adjustment.
Try again. The bezel will be seated against the case all the way around.
