    Where to buy bezel for U1

    I just bought a U1 SDR & I would like to have the ability to switch bezels to the Tegimented SS bezel. From what I read the switch over is about as easy as switching straps, but finding a bezel is very difficult. I understand that watchbuys is not very helpful in this matter. Obviously I can keep watching m2m here on WUS and will watch on e-bay, but other than that is there a good way to procure a Tegimented SS Bezel here in the USA?

    Thanks in advance

    I went thru this with my U212, looking to add a SDR bezel. WB said it was not possible, Sinn would not allow me to buy the bezel. I contacted P&G who said nonsense, but as I am in the US I'd have to go thru WB. WB later sold me the bezel.

    Sorry, probably a dumb question...
    What is P&G? & what exactly did you do to convince Watchbuys to sell you a bezel? How much did they charge?

    I meant P&C - Page & Cooper out of UK. AD for Sinn. I believe I mentioned to WB that I contacted anther Sinn AD who said buying the bezel should be no problem. Bezel was expensive - over $300 if I recall.

    Thanks....
    >$300 seems like a lot for a bezel that probably costs less than $25 to make but I guess I can always sell it

    I’m glad you found one on here. Your understanding is incorrect. WatchBuys will gladly sell you anything they can get from Sinn. If they won’t sell it to you, it is only because Sinn won’t allow them to. The bezels aren’t cheap, though.

    interesting...
    Maybe you can in other parts of the world, but I live in the USA and I did contact Sinn directly and they told me that I needed to buy it through WatchBuys. WatchBuys did not give me any trouble so maybe their policy has changed on this. They were perfectly happy to sell me one.
