    Question Brazil vs. Portugal 5600C remake bezel

    I was on eBay last week ready to buy a Brazilian remake 5600C bezel and could only find the listing for a new Item location: LISBOA, Portugal seller. Later last week I was able to find the Brazilian seller.

    Just wanted to see if anyone here has bought this bezel and how does it compare color wise to the Brazilian?

    Thanks

    PS if there is anyone here in the USA that has an extra re-pop bezel in the USA they would like to sell let me know.

    Apparently watches.br is no longer active. Their eBay account has no items for sale, and their Facebook page (link) has no new posts in the last year.

    I’m seeing three sellers on eBay with reproduction DW-5600C bezels:

    —— 1 ——

    eBay User “businessconfidence” wins the prize for most ironic name. Offers these options:

    For $10 + $30 shipping from Brazil:

    For $10 + $35 shipping from Brazil:

    Also sells a few dozen other watch parts, straps, bracelets, bezels, links, etc.

    —— 2 ——

    eBay User “denguinho” has the cheapest option, shipped to my home:

    For $25 free shipping:

    The same item (identical photo) is also available for $10 without free shipping. Maybe depending on where you live, that would be the better choice.

    It is also available in bulk: 11pcs for $120 + $35 shipping.

    Also available as a set, with a strap thrown in, for $30:

    They also have a gold-lettered version available. To my eye, the font is slightly different, but it may just be a trick of the light and color.

    Same delivery options and prices as the white-lettered denguinho bezel, minus the bulk 11pc option.

    They also have bezels for the DW-5600E with module 1545. (Interesting. Are those out of production by Casio too?)

    They have an assortment of other watch parts and older Japanese watches in very nice condition listed.

    eBay User “ux18610” also has bezels for sale. This is the “Lisboa, Portugal” seller.

    For $25, plus $20 shipping from Portugal, a white-lettered bezel:

    This is the only seller I’ve found that publishes photos of the back of the item. It looks pretty clean!

    This is the only item they sell.

    I just got the shipping notice from denguinho. Ordered on Saturday, so this is the second or third business day depending if you count Memorial Day. Shipping time estimate is 30-45 days, which seems a little on the long side for something so small given modern logistics, but I do have a tracking number from the get-go, which hasn’t always happened in the limited number of times I’ve done international sales from small vendors.

    Looking forward to seeing the results! I’m optimistic given what I’m reading and seeing about their product.

    I've been going through the same process trying to find replacement bezels. I sent an email to [email protected] and they responded. Sent PayPal payment but they have not accepted it yet. So I don't know what's happening with stock. I'm not sure if you are aware but a forum member electric0ant has also started to make bezels and is starting another batch hopefully in a few months time.

    Crazy: this just arrived, on the one day that I’m wearing my vintage screwback.

    I love the packaging. The molding looks pretty sharp, and the letters are properly “boxy”.

    This is from eBay user “denguinho”.

    Ordered 5/20, so about 3 weeks total elapsed. The estimated arrival was 6/17. Super stoked that it’s here today!

    I'm just seeing this although you posted it a month ago. Yeah, the lettering really is nice! This was the chief complaint about the earlier Brazilian bezels, and it's great to see that they've improved in that area.
