    Bezel Swap Between a Sinn 103 and Sinn 203 Arktis Possible?

    Anyone know if this bezel swap is feasible? I love my Sinn 203 Arktis, but I'm just not keen on it's shiny bezel. It's a bit too bright. A bit too bling. I think with the Sinn 103 St Sa bezel swapped in, it'll look perfect. A dash of black would mute the brightness of the overall watch. I've attached a pic of a Breitling Superocean Heritage Chrono to illustrate a similar look: bright blue dial with a black bezel.

    Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

    While they look the same, the cases are not identical. The 203 is not designed to accept the captive (screwed) bezels from the 103.

    If this swap is possible, would the Sinn 203 Arktis Look Better or Worse?

    What do u guys think? Or perhaps it looks better as is? Thanks for your input!

    One bump deleted (no bumps in regular fora please), two threads merged. CanĎt see the need for two threads in two fora.
    Kind regards

    Leave it as is. Itís an iconic watch with the one piece bezel. If you really donít like it, Iíll buy it from you so mine would have a twin.

    Why don't you simply exchange the two dials? Maybe case backs too. Will surely work.
