Can bakelite bezel fit on older Sea Wolves?
« on: February 20, 2021, 05:49:53 pm »
Would a Bakelite bezel fit on a Sea Wolf that originally had a metal bezel ,same inside/outside diameter?
 I know this question will raise some eyebrows...
Some people want to know how a watch works, others just want to know what time it is.

For the most part, no. Rare that you find something that is not the most part.

Even rarer is that you find a seawolf bezel made from Bakelite  :#banghead

I see here that the bezel is referred to as acrylic,
and will use the proper name from now on.
