    DW-9900 Bezel

    I've just received my latest eBay gamble and it seems to be the first one I've lost out on.

    The auction did show quite a few tears in the bezel, near the screws mainly but not the gaping crack at the bottom right of the watch.



    I've scoured the web and Rakuten looking for a replacement bezel but could only find one from Brazil for £80. That's more than the watch cost.

    Does anybody happen to have a spare one available?

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    check ebay. there was one for about $100. that's why i dont buy watches that have near impossible to find replacement parts. no longevity.

    £20ish for a brand new one.

    Cheers for the Yahoo Jp auctions. I've never used my FromJapan account but I think it will get some use tomorrow.

    Thanks Dragonjade. I won the bezel by itself for 2380 yen. It will make my froggy a bit of a Frankenfrog with yellow case writing and red Frogman text but that's much better than it falling to pieces. In fact I will keep the cracked one on until it does completely die and then swap it.

    The one with bezel and band was a bit too pricey.

    Excellent. You bagged yourself a bargain there, even in Japan, and especially compared to what people are paying on ebay.
