    SKX007 style bezel insert on SKX031?

    I've spent a lot of time searching for a clear answer but could not

    Is there a bezel insert with the 007 style that will fit a 031 bezel?

    Thanks

    Hi Mate,

    From memory (other members can correct me if I'm wrong )

    SKX007 bezel insert is 38mm outer , 31.5mm inner

    SKX031 bezel insert is 37.8MM outer and 30.5mm inner.

    To get 007's insert to fit into the skx031, you would have to use a wet sandpaper and sand away 0.2mm from the outer layer.

    You would be left with 1.5mm gap between the crystal and the insert.

    If you don't mind that, just buy the 007 inserts!

    Sure, I'll post some pictures. The watch has already been modified to be a "31MAS" hommage to the 62MAS. I will change the original crystal to an acrylic domed crystal and the original bezel insert to the Alpha (not a true hommage to the 62MAS but it'll be original.

    Here is where I bought the bezel : Alpha Watch
    This is where I got the inspiration : My first 2 Mods

    Well, it turns out the watch I have received is based on a skx023 and not on a skx031, it was simply advertised as "skx". I didn't even know such model existed. Anyway, the crystal and bezel insert I have ordered obviously do not fit.

    Any idea what replacement bezel insert could fit?
    Approx dimensions: 28.5mm inner, 35.5mm outer.

    Here's the watch. I looks good, but I'd like to take it to another level.

    Hey buddy, sorry for the late reply. I haven't check WUS for a long time. How did everything turn out?
