Just would like to ask if the bezel insert of a 6309, 7002 or 7s26 divers is glued to the rotating bezel or is it a snapped on tight fit?

The reason I asked is bec. there are some instances in some "step-by-step illustration/instruction of how to change bezel" that indicate that it is glued on while there is another that indicate as being a snapped on tight fit.

Thanks

On the models you mentioned, the insert just snaps into the rotating bezel. No glue is used. On occasion is an insert is slightly smaller or worn, people have used a small amount of glue so as to make sure it is secure. This however is not typically necessary. Do keep in mind that not every Seiko insert is a perfect drop-in swap. For examples Tuna Inserts must be filed down ever so slightly in order to fit the bezel in an intro level diver.
