Hi everybody. I bought a black resin bezel from PacParts to change things up a little on my GST-w310D-1ajf mid-size G-Steel. The new bezel is from a GST-w300-1ajf. Pacparts had to get it from Japan so it took a while. It came today and, to my disappointment, it looks as though I won't be able to swap it out.
There's a black piece under the bezel that seems to be secured under the case and thus won't pop out. This prohibits the "tabs" of the replacement bezel from snapping in, I guess. I don't really want to disassemble the entire watch. Has anyone else run into this issue?
I should have taken a better photo while I had it apart, but here you can see the black piece that allows the original, smooth, steel bezel to rest on it. The replacement black bezel will not sit on top of this appropriately. Perhaps the all steel model's bezel assembly is unique among the lineup.
