Bad luck Axel but it will be nice to have a new country becoming World champions.

Still wearing my 8000 on a oyster but really fancy putting it on a nice thick mesh.

Hey, Stefan....would you mind to tell where you sourced the new bezel? That interests me, since I have one exactly like yours (great taste, by the way!").

Regards,
CHRIS
Hi Chris,

I got lucky this time, a local watchmaker had one laying in a box.
Just stopped by to have the batteries replaced and he says: "hmmmm" and pulls it out of a drawer and asks if I might want to replace the well worn on mine, a nice surprice.
However I think that this bezel is for the two tone (ss - 'gold') model(?) and not for the pvd/powdered metal one. This one has all 'gold' numbers and minute markers, here's a more detailed pic:



The old one on my watch did not have that. Here's a pic of the old one:

But I like it better with the 'gold' numbers/markers so I'm not complaining. :)

Oh, it would not matter in my book if this is from the two tone model or not...it looks AWESOME in the PVD! It gave your aqua pimp (catchy name, by the way!) a completely fresh look.

I would not mind if just so happens that your watchmaker finds another two tone bezel laying around the drawer, perhaps?! ;) :)
I would buy it in a heartbeat! 8)

I'll keep that in mind next time I stop by him, who knows!
