    I took a Punt and Lost. Suggestions

    The last remaining job I had to do on the Tudor Oyster (7934)was replace the broken bezel. In searching the web I came across Tudor Prince 34mm bezels for twenty bucks . The inner and outer diameters were spot on so I bought one.
    Alas the underside is flat whereas on mine it has a step ,see photo.
    It’s not worth the money looking for NOS and am Wondering if there are alternative cases with the same bezel or is there a way to grind in the step.Name:  97E75F46-30D0-4112-9ACC-555B7A292FAE.jpeg

    Not ground down. It needs to be turned on a lathe. Straightforward for someone who knows what they're doing, a machinist or watchmaker. But they will charge you for their time.

    The old one could probably be repaired with a weld, but it would still need to be refinished after that. Also not going to be free.

    You might want to have the step milled into the new bezel. Suggest Jewellers with access to a lath or specialist metal fabicators who do piecemeal work. Found these guys in Brisbane...

    If they cant help they might be able to point you in the right direction. Failing that a Jeweller may be able to repair the original break.

    Good luck.
