The bezel comes with a spring but I don’t see how to attach the Spring to the bezel. It is different than all other Breitling bezels. The crystal is already presseed into the case.

Would someone please share how this works?

Appreciate any help!

Dracha,

Do you have any idea? Should I try with more photos?

Anyone else knows how this works? The bezel is too soft, so it gets damaged if I miss and have to pull it again and try again.

Is there a circular spring inside the bezel ?

The circular spring is the part at the right side of the photo. There is nothing else.

You have noticed how thin the aluminium bezel is , so under non uniform pressure it would be permanently bent .
As far as I can remember, the bezel spring is " classical" , a steel wire with a polygon shape like for AVI and others . I am surprised of the parts on your pics, it is not what I found in 2 or 3 Pult bezels that I got as spares . I currently have 3 Pults but I got them as complete NOS cases and did not remove any front part on them. Unhappily I have no spared Pult remaining neither pics of my previous ones so impossible to help you with pics .
I remember a very old post of Craig here, where he was explaining how to replace a Pult crystal , maybe you would find some more informations.

Phil, As you know already, I pulled the bezel myself off both the bullheads to replace the crystal. There was no other bezel springs. The two bezel springs came off with the bezels. There was nothing else. It is a complete different story as with 1806 cases or 2110. There you just pressed the spring into the bezel and push the bezel in. Here I don't know where or how to put the spring?

I will check Criag's threads now.

Found the post from Craig, but he doesn't explain how he installed the bezel. Tried to send him a PM, but the message sitting in my outbox and don't know why? Perhaps I am not allowed to send him a message??

I tried another message to Craig, now I have two messages in Outbox. There is definitely a setting here.

While searching through his posts, I found actually his email address and sent him an email. I have bought stuff from him through eBay and there he replies quite fast!

more here, in depth - and all my fault, as I had cracked the bezel on one of my Pult.
