Revue Thommen bezel mod?

Recommended Posts

Hi 

I have a large revue thommen divers watch and I have scratched the bezel. I would really like to change the bezel for a different colour does anyone know how or who to contact to enable this? I was hoping to mod it rather than like for like replacement.

i know this won’t be as straight forward as a Seiko mod but if it’s possible I’d be very happy ! 

Thanks

I've done it on a Steinhart Ocean One, which may be similar, depending on the RT you have. I followed these instructions to get the old insert off.

Then it's just a question of finding a bezel that fits in the colour you want and sticking it in place. Steinhart sell a range for their watches.

I can see bezel insert replacements for Speedmaster on Ebay, from Europe and the US. The whole bezel might be more tricky.

Hi Thanks for the great reply

my watch is the XL diver so I’m unsure if that’s a lot bigger than the steinhart or if the bezel size is standard?! Sorry I’m not very clue’d up but I would love to fit the brown bezel from the ocean one on the link you included!

Hi 

well I have just measured the bezel insert an it’s 34mm internal diameter and 43mm external.....does anyone know who supplies one of these !?

That's going to be difficult, bordering on impossible. There's a company on US ebay that does bezels for larger Invictas that might fit, but they don't give measurements, so you'd have to ask.
