Hey there,

You may recall Stage 1: Ridinfool Croc

Finally got the bezel insert swapped.
Really long story on this one - but I'll keep it short.

* Received new insert without 12 lume dot (empty hole)
* Searched web and finally found one
* Complained a bit to Zixen that it was not a true "complete" replacement
* They ordered one from the factory (no charge)
* Now I have 2 - ready for the watchmaker
* Failed to find one watchmaker (of 3) in my area that would risk the surgery on unfamiliar brand - can't blame 'em really
* Asked Zixen for specs - Joe said just send it in - I did.
* Was waiting for me today after returning from road trip - no charge (cept the replacement insert)

Here's the new insert on the original bracelet - didn't send it in on the Ridinfool Croc.
New insert works with notches for a more cohesive all steel bezel look.
Plus - have too many silver divers with black bezel inserts.

Don't know if there will be a Stage 3: Black Lüm-Tec Paint.
Been without it for too long to give it up just yet.
Will go back onto the Croc soon.

Thanks for watching

Great switch off, black lume would make it very cool. Really like the hands and dial on that one!

Glad you have it back. The steel insert certainly changes the look of the watch.

Looks fantastic Jeffrey! I think I like it best on leather, as I think you do. Looks like you have it right where you wanted it! Get it back on the skin and give us a new pic!

Negative.
That would be Stage 3 - should I get up the nerve to do it.
Wanna use black lume paint (Lum-Tec).
Black in light - green in dark.

Thanks.
