          Thanks Dayman. It only took about ten minutes to do and I still have the OEM bezel intact to switch back.

        Nice job man! I have never attempted anything bezel wise. I have an Invicta with the bezel insert that pops off that I am probably going to play with and experiment with. I really like the look of this swap you did here.

          Thanks Dan. I didn't think it would be too hard from the videos I watched. It turned out even easier than I thought it would be. The double-sided tape was a little tricky. I put the new bezel on the watch first, attached one side of the tape to the insert just in case I had to trim off any overhang. Once I lined it up as best I could, attached the other sticky side to the bezel. I used a soft cloth with the face side down and applied thumb pressure on the back of the watch until I heard the loud distinctive pop/click sound.

        Looks outstanding Mike. Definitely some inspiration for me to change up one of mine. The lume bezel was a good choice indeed.
        We already have enough youth, how about a fountain of smart?

                Mixing things up can keep the interest alive Scotty, and with minimal cost.

                Thanks Brad. I may have opened another door that's hard to shut.

                Thanks Joel! I hope you're doing well.

                Thanks Eric. Tritium may die in time, but needs no energy source to glow making a good choice for me while working.
