Thought I’d bump this fantastic old thread with this Snorkel M. I bought this a few months ago and promptly lost the original bezel somehow. I managed to track down this bezel from another identical watch case from another brand... I don’t know if it’s an improvement on the original but I must say the blue on blue is quite smashing.

That looks great!! Good work on finding a replacement bezel too. If/when the old one turns up, you’ll have a spare.
I have a vintage Aquadive with no bezel and gave up looking for a replacement. I will either end up wearing it as is or using the movement to power another project.

Thanks man! The old one won’t turn up for sure, I lost it while shopping in a mall with my daughter in downtown, it’s lost forever.

Good luck on your search!

Here’s something new;

Devil Diver LE dial, and the rest from the others. Different hand set and bezel. 41mm automatic movement. Selita?

Received the tracking information for my new 96B350 this mourning,about a week out still...I have confirmed case size IS 41mm.& movement is Miyota 821..Other than size,nothing else in common with the L.E.version which I owned at one time..The L.E.wasn't for me, IMO the shade of Orange used on the dial was WAYYY too Peach & I could barely see the tiny white markers even with my glasses!

Too peach? Huh. I never saw that. Almost the same exact shade as the NOS Oceanographer V dial I sourced. My vintage dial was a little darker, but it never has bothered me.

How hard will the bracelet be to fit? (I’m assuming you haven’t sized it in these pics)

Actually that is sized for my wearing preference & it was easy BUT the bracelets are very long so it is a bit trial & error...

That Bakelite bezel looks fantastic! It really works with the watch.
