    Do you think sapphire bezel inserts look good?

    Do you like them on SKX mods? What is your opinion?

    I think they're a bit excessive and would probably never wear one. But I tend to prefer a more minimalist tool aesthetic.

    Agree with the second post, a bit excessive imo, but if you like it go for it! That's what matters most!

    I like the look the Bakelite bezel on the Squale 101 Atmos, which may be somewhat similar in look since it’s essentially a clear top layer. I haven’t seen a sapphire bezel in person but I wonder how easily they’d shatter if you accidentally hit the bezel on something. That narrow strip of sapphire is asking for it.

    Seiko SKX do not merge nicely with the sapphire bezel inserts.

    I’ve had one from Yobokies crack when I tried to later remove the bezel. This is NOT a criticism of Harold’s product, more an indication that there must have been just enough flexing when removing the bezel from the watch to cause the insert to crack. Curiously it did not shatter

    Also, since the design is printed on the underside of the insert you pretty much have to get the position exactly right on your first try. If you try to lift it back off (figuring use of double sided tape here) to reposition it some of the design may peel off.

    I don’t see why not.
