I'm looking to get a replacement sapphire crystal for my Submariner hommage. I've damage the actual crystal by trying to remove the cyclop, but the gasket still in good shape.

My question is : is it possible to install the new sapphire crystal without a press ? I may try to fit it in the gasket by using a rubber hammer ? :-s

It may be possible, but I really wouldn't recommend it without a press. Even a $15 Harbor Freight Tools press would help, but it's likely it will not generate enough pressure to get the crystal in... you might need to lengthen the handles for enough leverage.
