found nice 6542 and want to fix bakelite bezel but inside measuremets of the insert are to small to put over the glass...
different glass outer measuremets or....??
thanks in advance, ralle

Good watchmaker can put this right by changing the glass or making a glass a bit thinner I had this problem many years ago with a couple of old 6542s.from 1958

I just finished servicing a nice 6542 w/Bakelite and the early book calls for 115 tropic I will double check tomorrow but 100% that it is 115
