Can't see this Kamasu aftermarket bezel being a good option when one apparently needs to basically destroy the original bezel to remove it? (Refer LIW video).

In this scenario the watch can't be returned to stock if desired.

sk,

Can you link the vid? I've had no issue removing the bezel from my Ray II and Mech.Force, surprised the bezel Kamasu is an issue.

The bezel is harder to remove on the kamasu
but I just took it to my watchmaker and he removed it using proper tools. No big deal. Saved the original bezel and I was able to just snap the after market in

I mean...why would you want to return it to stock though? Replacing bezels/inserts isnt like just swapping a strap. My assumption is that if you are doing a bezel replacement, its going to be permanent.

Looks awesome. I'm thinking a steel insert or root beer for my burgundy dial.

It's a personal preference I guess. I modded a Mako with a new bezel/insert and was easily & quickly able to swap with the original bezel from time to time (yep, like a strap). I also swapped the insert twice (black or pepsi), for a change of look. I ended up selling the watch, but was able to do so in stock form, with the extra bezel as a package. A better all round outcome, in my view.

It’s hard to remove, I tried to remove it like the previous gens of makos, I marred the case on the orient pretty badly. Don’t attempt unless you have the proper tools

SK,

Thanks for the link, interesting video. I stand corrected, if Marc says it's more difficult to remove a Kamasu bezel I'll take him at his word.
