Thanks. I ended up soaking the bezel in hot water first for a few minutes. Then held the bezel in the DIY removal tool before pushing the insert out with a soft blunt tool.

Looks like the insert was held in with a touch of glue on mine. Seems to be some clear glue when I cleaned out the bezel.

Hmmmm, which one?
I feel like the coke bezel matches better. The first one - the black and orange one looks like it might match a PO’s orange accents better? But whichever you like the most! If I had to vote, the Pepsi since it seems like a better complement to the watches existing colors..

The OP looks great, easy enough to convert back if you change your mind so I see no issue with it.

Tempted to try a different bezel on my Great White, but not in any hurry(planning to have it serviced soon anyway and might get the bezel assembly replaced which will leave me with a spare to play with) so will watch this thread Incase somebody beats me to it.

This thread really makes me want one and at the very least hope they come out with a GMT in the new 300 line.

Have someone done it on a Seamaster 2254?

I sourced an extra SMP bezel and was planning to try it out. But the ceramic bezel I got off eBay had an ugly pip... and also no way to adhere it to the bezel (perfect fit but no adhesive), so I bailed on the idea. But the thought of a lumed ceramic bezel on my 2254 was very enticing....

Tiny dab of super glue did the trick on mine, still easy to pop off since you dont super glue the entire surface.

Is that aftermarket bezel insert lumed?
