    Difficult, to next to impossible. Now as sure as I've said this, you'll find one tomorrow, but realistically...you're more likely to find a Synchron Pro, or Searambler with a trashed dial that you could use for parts, than just a bezel that fits. It could be a great project, but one that could take a long time to complete.

    As Subcrawler mentioned nearly impossible, definetly easier to find a complete Parts Synchron Pro or Sharky watch with trashed dial and solid rusted movement, than a single bezel.

    The Divingstar is a Synchron Case watch, which uses the DOXA 300T 2nd Generation bezel first used on the 300T bigcrown sailingship case up to the AUBRI 300T Cases with Ref.4321.

    Also keep in mind that the watch is complete but has a replacement vcrown and the case and bracelet have been extremly polished and all edges are rounded and no longer sharp.

    The plus is the nicely aged dial which looks like it still has the original lume, Hands are definetly relumed.

    Good Luck with the hunt and greetings from the other TWIN

    Regards Bernie

    P.S. See Bezel on the pic that´s the one you need.
