Try hunting around this site.Hi, I’m new in the forum. So I have this beautiful old watch. It’s Seiko Sportsmatic 7625-8260. The watch is in good condition and keeps accurate time. The disappointing thing is that the bezel has two cracks. One (minor) is on 18 minutes. The other is much noticeable - on 23 minutes. I looked anywhere to find part number of this bezel, or bezel from other model that will fit, but found nothing. The crystal for this watch is 325W05AN and is 32.72mm. The OD of the bezel is 36.1mm. If somebody could help me, I'd be grateful!
P.S. This is my first post, that's why I can't link a picture.:undecided:
I think you'll find he's asking for a bezel in it's true sense, not a rotating ring or insert, so Dagaz is unlikely to be much help.Try hunting around this site.
(Better late than never).
Printed an overlay for a 6309-836A last night, I've been spraying it with layers of clear coat to build it up. As far as I can tell mine cannot be replaced, or at least not easily. The insert has no foundation to adhere to, it looks like it is held in by a crimped edge from the bezel itself and has no 'shelf' under it. 36 O.D and 32 I.D. (maybe off by a 1/10 mm or so) I wish I had a micrometer to get an exact measurement.I will have to do some work then too. I have several Seiko Sports models as well as diver models that are not as popular as the typical 6309 7002 and 7S26 models that are completely ignored by the aftermarket. One being the 7546 quartz diver. The other is the large range of 6309 powered Sports models Seiko made with rotating bezels that are very nice watches but can not be restored properly because there are no bezel inserts that fit and no one makes them. I will get the dimensions up when I get a chance. I am seriously thinking of making a couple of these myself.
When it comes down to it we are talking about a thin ring of aluminum with paint on it. Once I design the mask on the computer its just a mater of printing them out on adhesive backed paper and then cutting the masks out. Then the sky is the limit as to any custom color or pattern. My 40 years of experience at scale model building will be very useful when I get to finally making these neglected inserts.
