    Ladies watch dial removal

    This one has stumped me - trying to get to the dial to remove/refit the hands as the second hand is catching on the minute hand. However, the dial won't come out the back so I'm assuming it's a front-loader of some sort but I've no idea how to remove the bezel/crystal. Any pointers would be much appreciated!

    I would expect the bezel to be press- fitted and should pry off, unless its screw- fitted ( unlikely on this style if watch) I canít see any other way to get it apart.

    Yep - bezel pried off but not very easily it has to be said. The crappy plastic minute hand wouldn't fit properly on the pinion anyway.

    There are various tricks that help a hand stay in place, if it has a pipe it can be gently squeezed in tweezers to tighten it up. As an absolute last resort a tiny spot of adhesive can be applied, not ideal but it will solve the problem.

    Getting the bezel back on might be a challenge......crystal press and bevelled plastic dies usually works.
