    Default Longines Admiral Bezel:

    I have a Longines Admiral L3.502.4- It has lost the number markings on the bezel- I sent it to through the official channels to get serviced and repaired and they were going to charge me $460 for a totally new case as the bezel couldnt be sold on its own. I was wondering if there were many bezels for this watch that would interchange with other Longines Bezels or if I would have to wait for a specific Admiral 200m divers bezel to pop up? I have found one example of what this watch should look like-

    The black number markings have come off and only the serrated edge of the bezel remains. The watch was given to me like this.
    I can put photos of the actual watch up when I get it back from the swatch group.

    What's missing? From the pictures it looks okay. Is the bezel insert now gone?

    I do not believe these are pictures of his watch, as he says he has found one example.

    Oh, well get the ruler out and give me my due for not paying attention.



    I'm pretty sure bezel inserts are available, whether factory or aftermarket. A search of eBay might be in order.

    It seems VERY strange that they are replacing the case for a simple bezel insert . I think it may be discontinued are they don't want to be bothered thinking outside the box . They would charge you to replace the case BEFORE they would buy a insert "off the rack" and fit it , it's not thier money being wasted ...............

    Default Thanks.. Finally got it back

    Thanks for your replies, I got the watch back from swatch... They didnt want to think outside the square, they originally quoted for a replacement quartz movement who would want that!!!! I have some photos of the actual watch- I have been searching on ebay and found nothing. I am in Australia and Im not sure if the parts are not listed internationally.
    Am interested in some of the specifics of the watch ie Jewels and year of manufacture.
