Brown and gold 1675/3 bezel

So an expensive trip to the market today.

I felt the watch catch on the shopping cart as I was lifting a box to put in the trunk. Didn't think anything of it until, a few hours later, I noticed I was wearing what looked like someone else's watch. The damned bezel was missing!

Anyone know the best place to procure 1675 bezels and the correct insert (all brown with gold numbers)? I've been bummed all afternoon.

Any assistance is much appreciated.

But I'll assume NOS equates to something like "new, original, super-duper"?

The link shows the item as out of stock, but do you know they have them? If they're out of stock, anywhere else you know of?

Thanks for the help, much appreciated!

Hi Michael.

My apologies - I now see they don't update their records when they sell (half their stock is 'not available').

A WTB on VRF's market page may find one for you. The inserts are 18kt gold (think -soft) so if buying used get a guarantee that it's still a tight fit on the crystal retaining ring.

I'll drop you a line with pics / price of the inserts I have.

You'll need the plexi model 1675 bezel and insert. 16753 and 16758 is wrong size. Btw NOS means 'new, old stock'

You are correct.

The inserts I have available are correct for the plexi GMT range.
Spot on correct for Michael's 1675/3.

I incorrectly advertised them as '16758' earlier this week .
Here's a pic of one posed on my 1.3 1675 plexi.

Cheers, Paul

The INSERTS are 18k? Really? ?
