NOTE THE PIC ABOVE. WHEN I LOCK DOWN A CRYSTAL RING
I USE A LITTLE RED LOCKTITE. IT NOT ONLY LOCKS IT IN PLACE
FOR DECADES, BUT WILL SNAP UP AND OFF AS OIT NOT PLACED
IF IT REQUIRES TO BE OPENED OR WORK PERFORMED. LOCKTITE
WILL NOT EFFECT ANYTHING AS LONG AS IT DRIES BEFORE BEZEL
IS SNAPPED OVER THE TOP. AND, AS I STATED A TOOL TO LIFT THE
HOLDOWN UP AND OFF WILL SHEAR THE LOCKTITE AND RELEASE
THE HOLDOWN THEN YOU SIMPLY RE APPLY AFTER WORK THE
LOCKTITE NOT ONLY HOLD THE CRYSTAL RING BUT SEALS IT !!

HERE YOU SEE THE SPACE ? THE BLACK AREA? A VERY SMALL AMOUNT IS
REQUIRED TO LOCK HER UP. I DO NOT BELIEVE ANYONE ELSE DOSE THIS
BUT LIKE I STATED ABOVE, IT SEALS AND, ESPECIALLY AFTER THE CASE
CONDITION , MAKES IT BULLET PROOF.  A LIGHT FILM OF IT AND PRESS IT

HERE WE SEE A "THIN RED LINE" LIKE IN THE MOVIE, THIS RED LINE
ACTUALLY WORKS GREAT. THE LOCTITE HAS NO SHEAR HOLDING FORCE
AS IT SHEEAR FORCE OF SNAPPING THE BEZEL RING UP AND OFF! BUT
AS FAR AS TURNING, OR MOVING OR SEALING? IT CANNOT BE BEAT! WORKS
GREAT ON ALL TYPES OF SITUATIONS LIKE THIS. A LOCK BUT NOT RESISTANT
TO THE FORCE OF LIFTING! GET IT? IT CANNOT COME APART EVEN WHEN
DIVING AND HITTING IT AGAINST CORAL ROCKS OR ANY TYPE OF TWISTING,
YET IT WILL SHEAR UP AND OFF WITH A TOOL! ONCE APPLIED YOU LAY FLAT
TO ALLOW IT TO DRY OVERNIGHT! IF THE WATCH IS SIDEWAYS IT COULD LEAK

NOTE THE MINISCULE RED LINE? VERY FAINT? THAT WILL DRY AS IS
BUT IF THE BEZEL IS PLACED ON TO IT AND IT SITS ON AN ANGLE IT
COULD SEEP INTO THE LOWER CHANNEL AND THAT WOULD CAUSE
THE BEZEL NOT TO TURN SMOOTH! IT SHOULD BE TIGHT BUT NEVER
TOO TIGHT!

SO, ALWAYS LAY HER FLAT BEFORE SNAPPING BEZEL
IF IT SEEPS THEN NO WORRY, A LIFT TOOL APPLIED UNDER
BOTH SIDES OF BEZEL AND PUSHED DOWN WILL SNAP THE
BEZEL UP AND OFF AND JUST USE SOME MINERAL SPIRIT
ON A RAG TO CLEAN THE CHANNEL AND BEZEL FRICTION
SNAP AREA AND THEN PLACE BACK ON. IF THE CRYSTAL
HOLD DOWN RING LIFTS, SIMPLY PLACE IT BACK ON WITH
A THIN SWIPE OF LOCKTITE, ALLOW TO DRY THEN SNAP
BEZEL OVER LIKE ORIGINALLY. THERE IS NO DOWNSIDE
BUT THAT OF REPOSITIONING THE TWO UNITS
