    If I ever decide to sell it, maybe I'll invest the 25 for a new one.

    yes that would make a lot of sense as would increase the sale price quiet a bit I would imagine seen one just slightly better condition and they wanted 45 I think it was so a new bezel might make it a lot more then that what do they do now in fair condition ? around the ton ?

    Find a watchmaker who has an account and accept a small markup from him.

    Might have to ask Adrian over in Australia to source the bezel from his suppliers and send over.
    That's IF I decide to move it on but for now I like the "used" look.
