How to Upgrade to a Ceramic Bezel Insert
You will need a couple of tools to easily attach your flat ceramic bezel insert. Most modders use a small knife and a wooden stick. Since the bezel is snapped on the watch you will need to pry it up around with a knife. Generally, it should be easy enough if you work around the bezel.
Then pry off the bezel insert using the knife. If it is too stubborn, you can use heat gun. Work it around.
Now, the force you will use would depend if you want to salvage the bezel insert or not. Once the bezel insert is off, check the watch and make sure the spring is still in place. This spring lets you lock the rotating bezel. Clean the bezel's inner surface with paint thinner, mineral spirits, or rubbing alcohol.
Put the bezel back into the watch. Make sure that it is locked so it won't rotate while putting in the bezel insert. Take the insert and apply the adhesive. Attach it on the bezel while making sure that it has proper alignment.
