unless you have a spare bezel.

I contacted the seller through ebay to let them know, and even sent them a picture when they played dumb (we wondered whether there was another bezel), only to get this incredible reply:

"Hi, honestly, when we purchased this watch, it was without the "outer bezel" already. anyways, the pictures speak for itself. collectors knew about it( the outer bezel) but just keep mum on that one because the important thing is this watch is working and has a nice manly case. thank you and best regards

Did this answer your question? If not, let the seller..."

I guess the "manliness" of the watch is supposed to compensate the poor ignorant buyer for a missing and probably unsourceable part (I'm still looking for one for mine, if anyone does have a source!)

I have been burned badly (just once) on the MWR, so no place is perfectly safe, but this kind of behavior makes one assume the worst of every ebay auction. I've reported the seller to ebay philippines but lord knows what that will accomplish.

stay away from this seller and this sale.

I have never seen a Enicar Sherpa OPS with a bezel, can you please show the picture you have sent to the seller.

Best Regards

the only compressor case i've seen with an outer bezel is the nivada grenchen dephtomatic.

here's a link to a complete watch. please note it's not a movable bezel--simply a metal ring bezel with no markings.

but if you look closely (very closely) at the ebay listing, you will see the gap between the base of the lugs or the crown guards and the crystal--where the metal ring bezel snaps in.

and I only know this because I bought one missing the bezel and did not realize it until after I got it home.

Ok, I thought you mean a rotating bezel.
I have that metal ring if you are interested, used but maybe better than none;)

Here is a picture of my Enicar Sherpa OPS all original and in near mint condition.
