    Dw 5900 screwback

    Hello all I'm new here. Hopefully someone can help me out with this. I just bought a dw 5900 hoping to restore it, it currently doesn't have a bezel and I'll probably end up replacing the strap as well. Watches.br has the bezel for 590p but says it is only for those with a screw on back, the one I purchased has the newer 4 screws on the back. Will that bezel actually not fit? and secondly I can't even find any images of a 5900 with a screw on back. If anyone can answer this question or knows where I might be able to obtain a bezel for a reasonable amount of money I'd appreciate it...really want to get this watch back in wearable shape.

    Thanks for any help.

    Re: Dw 5900 screwback

    So you are saying there is no screwback 5900? That's what I was starting to think since all the pictures I could find were looking the same and none of them screwbacks. Looks like I'll order from watches.br then since it seems to be the only place reproducing these bezels. Thanks!

    Watches.br's posting is wrong because there is no screwback DW-5900. However, I ordered DW-5900 bezel from them before and it will fit the DW-5900 watch with 4 screws.

    Ah ok, well now I am even more confused as to what watch their bezel is for but I suppose if they don't fit I won't order it. So seems like the only thing I can really do is wait until a decent used one pops up for sale.

    order it, its fine. many have done it. and finding a decent used one will cost too much unless you get lucky and patient. and there is always the chance it crumbles when you take it off. spend the $30 and be happy.

    I'd like to, is it just going to be a little loose or something?

    Geez misread that the first time and took it to say will not fit. I'll get one ordered from them as soon as they get me the info.

    Thanks
