Diver watch bezel does not stay on

diy-kit

#1

I have assembled the watch and all is working. I have peeled off the backing for the bezel ring but it won’t stick in place and just drops off. What am I doing wrong?


#2

Do you have any photos or video? It’ll help us figure out the problem if we can see what’s happening


#3

Seems that the shoulder that the bezel fits around sits up too high and the the bezel ring does not seat. Strange as during the build I did not install the bezel or front glass etc.


#4

The bezel looks normal. Do you have photos of the bezel insert and when the insert is on the bezel?


#5

So with the backing peeled off the bezel ring just spins round and if you tip the watch it falls off. The sticky backing doesn’t seem to be seating at all.


#6

hmm from what you describe, it seems like the sticky tape doesn’t reach the bezel at all. I’d suggest you talk to @Jeff here, he can offer a replacement I guess


#7

Hey @Supermotodave, sorry to hear what happened. Could you email me at jeff@diywatch.club? I’ll have my team follow up with you and get you a replacement


#8

So I took the whole bezel off, the ring seemed to stick to it but when I put the bezel back on it popped off again. That’s why I thought that inner shoulder that the bezel fits around was too proud and pushes the bezel ring off.

I have emailed, thanks
