Tips for lens replacement below.

Tools required: Patience, a razor knife, pair of dikes, epoxy.

The bezel is aluminum and crimped on over the body to hold the lens in place. You cannot pry or bend the crimp to remove it.

To start, you have to remove the adjuster knob from the adjuster shaft. This requires holding of the adjuster shaft with a pair of small wire cutters or dikes before pulling on the knob, so that the adjuster shaft is not pulled out of the gearset within the body of the clock.   If you mistakenly pull the entire shaft out of the clock, you will no longer be able to adjust or set the time. 

Once the adjuster knob is off, carefully >cut< the backside crimp by carefully dragging a very sharp razor knife over the bent edge of the aluminum bezel. Only one half of the complete circle needs to be cut/separated, at which point the bezel will loosen on one side and can pop free.

Push the old lens out, put the new lens in, and then refit the bezel and lens assembly to the body.

When putting everything back together with the new lens, carefully apply epoxy to the ½ of the bezel that was cut away and let cure.

The most difficult part is not getting in a hurry and mistakenly dinging or scratching the black bezel as you're trying to remove it.
