Fascinating! Seeing this reinforces what a great value early CW's were. This is far more complex than the standard click spring / bezel / insert design that most divers use.

Couldn’t agree more - the early CWs were great VFM and had some really interesting and quite original designs.

Doesn't look like an easy DIY job. Guess I'll give it a miss.

One of my C6s is going in to CW soon and this is something I've asked them to address, so if you haven't found an answer by the time I have it back, I'll let you know on here! (though they are suggesting they will have it for a while)
I know what you mean about on-going love for the C6 though - I've had my Quartz one for 10 years and it's easily the most worn watch I've ever had (and it's not been treated with kid-gloves!).
Thanks. Looking forward to hearing the outcome.

Thanks gaf1958 for your detailed reply. You saved me from breaking my bezel attempting to remove it!

Travelling in India at the moment so internet is sporadic at best. The C6 is perfect for travelling. It is built like a tank and can take a good bit of stick. It's been my daily beater for about 12 years and has been totally reliable. I seem to have more attachment for it than my other watches.
