Default Sooooo...how does one remove the crystal retaining ring from a Citizen 52-0110?

As the title says, I'm trying to install a new crystal in my Citizen 52-0110, but I don't see how the retaining ring comes off and I don't want to jack up the lip of it. Any tips out there?? I googled and searched the forum to no avail....


Thanks!

The crystal just pushes out. The retaining looking ring is fixed while the plastic crystal gasket is what holds the crystal in.

Aaaahhhh.....thank you kind sir! It looked that way, but I wasn&#039;t sure. I assume you just press the crystal back in with the press then? Wild.


Many thanks again, and +1 to you.

Yes, a crystal press works great on it.

The older models with the red date wheel have a bezel that pops off, but the later ones just push out and have a fixed bezel.. I put mine back in with my thumb, and it gave a nice satisfying click as it went back in.
