I've heard a wash with soap and water also helps to loosen it up a bit.Madman...,
Congrats on the new watch.
I love my 8926 NH35A I got a few weeks ago.
The bezel is very hard to turn. I use one of those rubber jar opener sheets to work mine to see if it will loosen up over time. If that does not work, I will try to lube it.
I'm glad you got the movement you were looking for, and I'm glad you're happy with the watch. Enjoy!!!mine come from Amazon with nh35 movement and i want to say that is very special watch!great quality and great movement for 100$!its look like more more money watch!
