Fossil fs 4877


Question

I'm restoring a Fossil FS 4877 quartz chronograph. It is one of the 404 club watches which I got from ebay.

The movement appears to be working fine but the watch crystal is badly scratched. I'm trying to remove the crystal to measure it for a replacement. The movement appears to be a front loader but I can't seem to remove the bezel. There is a very wide groove under the rim of the bezel. This makes inserting a razor blade or using one of the bezel removers impossible. I've tried putting a screwdriver blade in the groove and twisting it to pry the bezel off, but nothing seems to budge. 

Has anyone replaced a crystal on one of these watches before? Your advice is much appreciated.

There may be no removable bezel. Just pop out the crystal with a syringe. There is also a syringe tool made for that.
