    First of all, I hate the fact that new collectors of vintage Formula 1's have to pay an extra for a plastic bezel in new condition.
    So i took initiative and modelled the bezel in Fusion 360...
    After i will finish it, i will make the model public for everybody to print their own (on a resin printer preferably, for the extra quality)
    These are the first versions, and i have a lot of work to do on them...
    Hope to get some feedback on this project!

    I remade it with the right dimentions
    Took me 2 hours for 1 chamfer.
    This is before and after!

    Cheated a bit by combining chunks of the bezel but it turned out pretty good!

    Thanks, for now i've modeled this as a prototype. I need the dimentions of the real bezel:
    -Inner diameter
    -Outer diameter
    -Height
    This to begin with on the actual body
    After i'm done with the body i will get to the ugly side... the ratchet side:confused:::facepalm2::

    If someone wants the files i made untill now, message me.

    I have the same watch that you used in the photograph. I can help you with the measurements of the bezel.
