I have a Bulle clock bezel that is missing the glass. But, as I look at the bezel, thee is a groove that the glass fits into. There isn't any apaent way to remove the ring behind the glas. How would I get a replacement glass in?

Thanks, Frank

Originally they heated the bezel and the glass would then be inserted. The glass has to be cut precisely. The more common way, is cut it to fit cold and then cement it in.

I recently did one on an Ansonia and heated the bezel very hot with a heat gun, then immediately inserted the glass. When it cooled it was perfect.

Your oven top burner would probably work. Don't try hot water. You can't get it hot enough.
