Evening
I have rediscovered a very sentimental Lorus 'Divers' watch model Y572-8000 that I bought new in 1984 with one of my first wage packets.
I remember wearing it to the beach that summer, but the bezel must have popped of when swimming, I was gutted! I should have contacted Lorus for a replacement bezel back in the day, but when you're young, a cheap watch is a disposable item.
Anyway, I've gone far enough down memory lane, can anyone assist with finding a replacement bezel please?
Cheers

If no one on the forum has one, the best chance I can think of is to set up an eBay notification and see if one surfaces that that you can use for parts.

On the plus side, the first thing that came up when I Googled your watch indicates that Matthew McConaughey wore one on True Detective, so at least you've got a watch from a Grammy-winning character. Also, living without the bezel could put you in the same camp as Brando!

Man, nice work Northdock. I tried to look it up in the Borel site but only came up with movement parts.

Hi John
Thank you. They didn't provide a part number, but it is believed to be 86310143, so if you have a chance to look that would be appreciated.
Thanks
Rob

Was it a lorus? I saw some debate on it but was convinced he was wearing a citizen because of the windfarer rubber strap

That seems to be what most people had thought (myself included) - but there is a blog post somewhere (just google True Detective and Lorus) where a guy actually contacted the prop manager for the show who confirmed it was a Lorus. Gotta appreciate someone who bypasses all the speculation and goes straight to the source!
