    Anyone know if the old Matte bezel will fit the new Sapphire version? If it does then I need to search for one.

    I had to go back to rubber because I saw a loose screw on the bracelet and got a little paranoid it could come out. Is this something a jeweler can fix and loctite for me or should I do it myself? Any experience with this would be great. I'd imagine a jeweler doesn't Loctite screws so I'm probably tasked with doing this one on my own.

    I had the same problem when I got both of my SDs. After tightening the screws that started to come out, they haven't come loose again. I just keep an eye on the screws every once in a while. As long as they appear slightly recessed on the bracelet, you know you're good. The thought of using Loctite doesn't really appeal to me. I bought one watch in December and the other in February. So far so good.

    Just give the bracelet screws a snugging and you should be fine. Loctite may cause more harm than good. Do you have screwdrivers that fit? I bought two sets of these at Ace Hardware, they work perfectly.

    Thanks guys. I did snug them up, but I only had one decent sized screwdriver. I have another one coming in the mail and ill do it properly tomorrow. So once they are tightened up, they hold without locktite? That makes my life easier.

    Got the new SD42 V2 in today. It's nice. It really appears to be smaller that the last version. I think the new small bezel makes it look smaller. Here is a pic of my old one. Will get the new one up soon.

    I like that look a lot. Real nice. Does mine have the new bezel or the old one? I have no idea. Mine lumes, if that makes a difference. It looks like yours may be wider than mine, but that may just be the angle.

    The black and orange is the old style. The new ones have the Sapphire bezel.
