    This was a bezel from another very patient customer, bezel was grinded on its surface , internal lip and shaped indicator missing, replaced by an aluminium one pin fastened.
    After some welding laser, lathe, indicator remade by milling machine, template to weld it exactly comply with click position, this is the work. After all the usual black insert has be redone.











    Best, Aldo

    Well this guy is amazing.
    What's an SM300 worth ( Hate that question ) if it's not got the Bezel?
    Forget the /€/$ value its visual impact complete is the factor with me.
    STS serviced the movement and as I didn't like the hollow hands James Hyman did an incredible restoration to the two hands for a " mates price " even though I had never met the guy...
    This is an incredible forum for lovers of the vintage.
    I am most grateful to you and will follow faithfully!
