    Bezel swap for O&W anyone?

    Well I finally made up my mind as far as what watch I wanted (I posted on here before about building a watch up from Ofrei's site with some Breitling dials), anywho I opted for an O&W Mirage as it was basically what I wanted in one package.

    The only thing that bothers me, slightly, about the watch is the edge of the bezel is black. After searching google I found some replacement bezels off RLT watch.

    First question: can I swap the bezels?

    Second question: should I?


    Thanks,




    the bezel from http://www.rltwatches.co.uk/acatalog/O___W_Parts.html

    measure them. the sellers on ebay post their sizes.

    FWIW, i dont think theyll fit, you sure yours takes a bezel insert? doesnt look like it in the pic.

    That was my question
    I'm not sure, though those are replacement bezels for O&Ws (it doesn't mention the Mirage III on the site, it just gives part numbers).

    I don't think the bezel inserts you intend to use will not fit your watch. The bezel currently on the Mirage is a carbon fiber material or acrylic which looks better than the replacement inserts IMHO~Cheers!

    Hmmm I'm really sure mine is metal, maybe mine is a older/newer model? Any pics or info on the composite bezel?


    Thanks

    One more idea,

    Could a watch maker take a Sin 103 bezel and swap it to my O&W Mirage III (as the dial looks identical)?



    Thanks
