I purchased an Oris Aquis 39.5 back in March and after a few weeks and comparing it to the 43.5mm Aquis, I realized the bezel was very loose. It had some backplay, which doesnít bother me, but I could spin the bezel with the light touch of a finger. To give an example, Iíd say it took 1/4 of the force to turn the bezel on the 39.5 than it would take to turn the 43.5.
I brought it back to the AD and they shipped it to Oris. Before Oris even received it, they sent me a brand new 39.5. Definitely more tension in the bezel, still a tad of backplay. Probably 1/2 of the force to turn than the 43.5mm now.
I would prefer the bezel to have a bit more tension to make it stiffer to turn as itís still a bit light for my taste.
My question is, can the spring under the bezel be bent ever so slightly to increase that tension? It seems easy enough to pop the bezel off; I just want to make sure that the spring is what stiffens the click.
Anyone have experience tightening a bezel or have thoughts on this?
Thanks for the help
