A comment: Most people leave out the click spring at this point. You must install the o-ring from your original bezel to the replacement.

If you installed a smooth, insertless bezel such as the SE2010, you are done.

Next: A few words about fitting bezel inserts.



Bezel inserts, like all manufactured things, are made to a tolerance.
We have measured hundreds of bezel inserts intended for the SKX007 dive watch, and they are not made to an exact size. Our bezel counterbores are sized to accept the majority of them.
However, once in a while, adjustments are necessary.

Check the fit before you get out the glue!

Please note: In the SE3050 bezel, the insert is fully surrounded by steel. This means that you might need to adjust the outside diameter of the insert, as depicted below, or to the INSIDE diameter of your insert.

Again, sort it out before you get out the glue.
