See what I did there?
I know the SCWF isn't really the right forum for this but there's a good chance someone will know.
On a swatch Irony how do you change the crystal? and where would you get one?
There is a cosmetic bezel ring but it looks to have no sufficient gap to prize off hence wondering if it does or not.
I don't really want to crash in trying to remove it causing damage if it's not meant to come off.
Neither do I want to use a crystal remover until I know if the ring does need to come off, I would think it does though because the back is a one piece case so everything has to be serviced from the face side.
The pic isn't the watch but it's the same model.
TIA.

As you know the swatch irony wasnt meant to be repairable....
But saying that.... If you check out the YouTube, some one actually demo one.

Apparently the bezel needs to be forcefully ply open (with some damage) and the crystal seems to have a odd shape sitting.
