Default SBBN007 bezel insert removal questions

Here's a question to the forum:

I have some replacement bezels for SBBN007 Tuna watches.
I'd like to remove the inserts from these.
I've read a few articles on the process, but these inserts seem to be mounted quite securely.

Are they both glued in and pressed in? Has anyone had any success with removing the inserts without destroying them or damaging the bezel?
Any advice or thoughts are appreciated!
Thanks,
Mike

Mike I think the best method is a craft knife running around the underside of the insert

Ok. I'll try that.
It really looks seamless under there though.
I just ordered two bezels from Rob and they came in a couple days ago.
I put one, as is, straight onto my SBBN007 Tuna, but the other one needs the insert removed prior to coating.
Have to see about getting to that this weekend.
Mike
