Ty, the reason the insert wouldn't budge is because it doesn't have an insert...March 14 2007 at 12:36 PM

Response to that's a very vunerable part of the MM...
The MM text is printed directly onto the bezel in a multi step process. The metal bezel's top surface is blackened and then the printing lasered onto the black "paint". So in other words, the bezel is a one piece assembly.
I found this out the hard way when I needed to have one replaced from a very nasty series of gouges caused by a knurled barbell. The entire bezel had to be replaced by Seiko since there is no traditional "insert".
