Breitling bezel removal


Question

Hi,  Can someone please tell me how to remove the bezel from this Breitling?  Which screws do I remove or do I prise off the bezel with a knife? I have seen Breitling in house service promotional video on another model and it looked like they removed some screws, I just wanted to make sure. Thanks, see photo

Normally bezels can be levered off, I use an old butter knife. However this is of a different design.

Found this vid looks like not all of the screws need to be removed but most. PS be careful don't loose any of the screws.

Clockboy thanks very much for that I didn't see that one when I did a search the other day.

So great news you only need to losen the screws that are on their own, not the writer screws and don't have to remove them totally.

    • 3:29  Oooooohhh that went silky smoothly, I bet nobody else saw that coming. 😆  I remember doing something similar with an old Hornby clockwork locomotive that no longer worked, when I was a kid (showing my age again). I undid the four screws holding the thing together and there was a very similar explosion of uncoiling steel with the addition of a few airborne cogs, and a very confused me sitting thinking bloody hell how did they manage to get all that spring in there, and how the heck am I going to get all the bits back in.   Speaking of which, how the heck is he hoping to get it all back in? Superglue and a hammer? AndyHull grabs the popcorn and starts looking for the follow up video.

    • Hi Tudor, Thanks a lot for your advise. I considered it as the best solution. Later I discovered that manufacturer did it with an hexagonal 0,5 mm stake, but seems it does not work as expected,  as could be seen in the photos of same watch I could find on Internet, almost all are out of "synchrony", so I have my doubts and, any case, I don't have any stake to try it. The pinion diameter is around 0,5 mm diameter at the junction, trying to drive a 10 mm wheel, so the relative torque is so huge that it overcome the manufacturers expectations (I wonder who calculated it, maybe a floating comma fooled him). (Tried to attach a better photo but the page do not allow me to do. I'll do later if possible) As I suppose there may be some shoulder just below the wheel to support it, I though a fluid adhesive may penetrate it enough to increase the adhered surfaces and hence increase it's torque performance. As I have no experience with such kind of junction I'm trying to test different adhesives that can be eliminated to check different makes if not successful.  After much thinking and searching I think shellac may deserve a try, diluted it may penetrate everywhere and it could be easily cleaned. I'll post the outcome when I could do it.  Again thanks for your help
