The 116610 uses a crystal retainer ring to hold the crystal and gasket on. These can typically only be removed successfully with a special Rolex tool. BUT if you’re determined you could slide a blade underneath it and work around until you create a gap large enough to pull it off.

Pushing it back on requires a precise due that is just bigger than the crystal but small enough to still fit atop the slim ring.

Part 319 is the retainer ring.
