Bodo, after a few days of looking at that bezel insert, I must say its growing on me. Not saying it's authentic, but it looks more like a 6105 insert then a 6309. And I love me some 6105's especially yours.

I think Tristan had cracked it. Is a 6309-729a bezel part number the same as a 7040/9?

John, yes this is what made me curious from the get go. As in your picture and mine, the bezel pattern is the same on most 6309-7040s, with the central ring groove running uninterrupted.

Tristan's pic there shows the pattern much the same as this new one.

Bos, I'm not sure about a 6105 bezel. Maybe too much slope to match one, but it certainly has features I've really not seen on AM parts, but David's assessment I trust
Although I'm sure he would agree also that better shots and a shot of the lume pip underside would help.


Anyway I will see if I can get some scales, otherwise I could do with getting this back asap as one thing I think is certain. It's not a 6309-7040 bezel that I'm looking for. Whatever it actually is, maybe Tristan's worked it out?

Default Genuine 6309 Bezel/Insert?

Here's a better pic of that knurling on the bezel - after I'd swapped the beat up insert into it.
Just take into account that the different cut depths might account for any variation in the weight of your bezel to another bezel.

Well there is a WR thread that has come to the conclusion that it's genuine and likely a Singapore made replacement from the 90s.

I'm still not sure. Insert seems way too accurate to be fake, but the bezel isn't correct for a 6309.

I'm considering keepint it and removing the insert to install it in a 6309 with a very beaten up insert soon. Not sure what to do.
