    Why replace the bezel when its already good? If you search "vostok rising sun" you can see this kind of bezel is also correct

    The bezel is correct, these always come with a chrome case and TiN (Titanium nitride) bezel. Titanium nitride is a golden protective layer put on metals: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titanium_nitride

    Don't touch you watch it's perfect

    Well it is nearly 30 years old!

    But if you buy a new bezel from Meranom or any other seller please note that they have been made quite a bit thinner for a long time and if you want one the same thickness you will have to hunt down a NOS bezel from the 1990's.

    If the scratches are not deep then you can remove with very fine wet and dry (silicon carbide paper) followed by a chrome polish or similar. I like Cape Cod for watches.

    I agree that the watch is in such good condition that you should not change the bezel but keep as original.

    Seriously buy it and leave as is.

    Or move on and get something you are truly happy with.


    Good luck friend
