Question about Rolex Submariner 16618 Wristwatch
How do i take the glass out of my watch?
Rolex glasses are held in place by the bezel ( ring surrounding the glass ). Bezel must be lifted off first in case if the glass must be removed. Rolex bezels are friction fitted and are very tight. Usually special tools are used for bezel lifting, but in skilled hands the watchmakers knife can do the job as well (inserting the blade between the bezel and case and slowly prying up all athe way around).
In most cases the bezel still holds the glass when lifted off the case. To release the watch from bezel ring you will need a special press with dies as you will need it for refitting glass and bezel on to the case.
I would advice to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for help, because without proper tools it is allmost impossible to remove and reset Rolex glasses without damaging them.
