  1. Public Forum
    Hi guys, I have a question regarding a bezel on my speedmaster from 76. Basically used to have a DON bezel on it, I bought the watch as such. But now I wanted to put the right bezel on it. Which I believe is this one on the picture. Only problem it doesn’t seem to fit, even with a . Do you...

    I recently picked up a new SRPD55 and added the One Second Closer satin black Atlas One and OSC gunmetal/aluminum insert. I wanted to end up with drab, utilitarian kinda look (opposite of dressy), so also swapped the Seiko oyster to a Seiko OEM DAL0BP urethane band. No, I'm not a diver, but I...

    I have astigmatism and I'm sure many of you do as well per statistics. Not sure if my eyesight is getting worse but I'm one of those that want to set the time in perfect sync hitting the markets perfectly to the T. Lately, I've noticed that it is harder to do that, same with bezels, my mind is...

    Can someone please explain the purpose and appeal of a 120 click bezel? I've got two Glycine Combat Subs, and a Sinn 104 - each with a tight, solid-feeling, simple 60-click bezel. The 60-click bezel feels like the tool it is on these watches. Then I've got a Seiko SKX, Samurai, Willard and...

    I've finally received the bezel in the mail today, but when I tried to try it out on my ray2 I encountered a problem. The stock bezel is easy to remove with a knife and fairly easy to click back into place with just fingers but the bezel from namoki mods is a different story. First I tried to...

    Hi everyone, I just changed out the bezel insert on my Seiko 5KX and boy what a difference it makes! I'd love to see your before and afters and side by sides of your watches with your new bezel inserts! The rosegold insert that came with my watch was pretty blah so I switched to a sport style...
  8. Russian watches
    Hello guys, I just recently got to know the existence and history of russian made watches, mainly vostok. Naturally I got excited, went on ebay and bought this one. I pulled the trigger on it coz i think the ship wheel dial is kind of an interesting take. I'm told it's a 270 case (according to...
  9. Breitling
    Please help! For a very long time I have been looking for a bezel screw for my Breitling Chronomat. I can't find it anywhere... It is more like a plug than a screw, the picture shows an example of another "screw" I took out of the watch. Does anyone know where I can find my missing "screw"...

    So as the title says, I just can't take the bezel out. I want to do it for a bezel insert change but I've been unable to do it. Is it possible that there's more to it than just force to get it out?
  11. Seiko
    I found this post on reddit showcasing a Seiko homage to a gemset Rolex SARU. I know people love to talk down on this aesthetic, but I really like it and I'm wondering if anyone knows where to find a bezel like it. I know the quality of the gems won't be as good as the real deal, but I don't...
  12. Pilots' & Military watches
    Any suggestions for a 120 click (not 60 click) Bi-Directional Bezel watches out there? Plenty of 120 click Uni-directional bezels or 60 click Bi-directional bezels, but almost no 120 click Bi-directional bezels? Preferably with a screwdown crown and 100-300m water resistance?

    I have a Maratac GPT-2. The unidirectional bezel got stuck some years ago and eventually would just turn freely in either direction, sticking around 2 o'clock. After 4 hours of fiddling and prying I managed to get the bezel off. I'm trying to figure out the arrangement for the bezel spring /...
  14. Casio G-Shock
    I've come around full circle here. I started a thread 9 years ago asking about bezel options for my DW5700C from 1987 with a 901 module. Original article - https://www.watchuseek.com/f17/bezel-options-1987-g-shock-dw5700-c-please-help-578537.html I ended up with the Brazilian bezel that wasn't...
  15. Seiko
    Has anybody run into this? I installed a sapphire top hat crystal in my SKX013, and now the bezel is extremely hard to turn. I hate to switch back to the original crystal, but I use the timing bezel often and it should be functional. I really like the look of the new crystal and want to make...

    I've had my Citizen Satellite Wave CC3001 for about 3 and a half years and I recently noticed that the coating on the bezel is peeling. You can see it in the picture near the BKK text just by the crown. I'm not sure how it happened - maybe I bumped into something with the watch - but I was...

  18. Rolex & Tudor
    Hi! Since looking into refurbishing my grandfathers watch that was passed on to me I would like to ask the following. Is there a general consensus as what are the tolerances when we match a bezel with a crystal ? I will use my current predicament as an example. After finally figuring out...

    Hi everyone - I'm looking to purchase a replacement bezel for an Omega Seamaster ref 396.0900 (see picture below). I've been searching all over and haven't had any luck. If anyone has one that they'd be willing to sell or has seen one posted online anywhere, please let me know. Thanks!

    Hi Folks, I'm researching Large Blue-Bezeled Dive Watches and I came up on the Invicta Pro Diver 3045. Before taking the plunge (literally and figuratively), what are some Big (44mm+) Competitors to this watch? I’m paying particular attention to Seiko, as I feel like there's some I haven't...
