Advice Needed

Post by SethR » Mon Dec 02, 2019 5:10 pm

Hey Guys,

A ceramic bezel insert fell out while swimming over vacation this week. Luckily I was able to grab my daughters goggles, and find the insert, which was undamaged.

Now I need to glue the insert back into the bezel. Any advice on adhesive? Epoxy, white gorilla glue, those 3M bezel adhesive circles, or???

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Seth

I'd use those 3M bezel adhesive circles if you have them. I would not use Gorilla Glue or any "Krazy Glue" (ethyl cyanoacrylate) type adhesive. It could stain the insert and could certainly cause issues down the road if you ever needed to service the bezel.

I don’t have them, but have them in my amazon cart. I don’t think I’ll be able to find ones cut for this specific watch, but think I could order the SKX ones and cut to fit. Thanks for the advice.

Shoot Carlo a PM and ask him what he uses.

Hey guys- lost track of this thread. Thanks for the advice!

I wound up using the 3M adhesive circles and they worked great.
