In case anyone wants to know: The date cyclops was called for in the contract. Removal is really easy. Use a small butane torch or better yet a cigar lighter. I have a Windmill lighter that casts a small blue flame. Heat the cyclops with the tip of the flame pointed away from the bezel to avoid burning the bezel. After a few short seconds, the cyclops turns white and it can be nudged off with a razor. Scrape away any excess glue. Replacement is just as easy. Scrape excess glue off the cyclops and glue it back on with ultra violet glue available at watch supply stores.
There is no permanent damage done and you can put the cyclops away for another day.
