Hi all - I have a 16s pocket watch and the front bezel won't budge ! Yes - it is a screw on/off bezel. I tried one of those thin rubbery pads from my wife's kitchen drawer, but still have no success in getting the thing to move. So - I am wondering what tricks or methods any of you have used and/or had success with... I am wide open to any suggestions...

Thanks in advance - stay safe and well !

I use hot glue and a piece of wood.

I put a good amount of hot glue along the bezel and stick it to a piece of wood.

A rubber glove to get a good grip of the case, and turn.........

Haven't faild so far.....

Thanks - I will give that a try. And I apologize - had I taken a moment to run a search, I would have found that this topic has already been discussed... Sorry guys.......
Thanks again!

The stick and hot glue worked like a champ !!!!! I never would have thought to try that, but it worked perfectly !! Thanks.
