Re: WTB: Replacement bezel for a 1872 Lemania SAAF

: Dear Sir,
: Have you managed to get any feedback. I'm also searching for same
: part. Warm regards

I am very familiar with these models. Great of having an SAAF version of the Lemania 1872. You can use the bezel from any Ref 817 case case such as My pictured selectron, Bucherer or Wakman versions of the 817 case watch. My selectron is actually the identical watch to the SAAF but not military, the only other bezel used was the bakelite version on the Viggen version which is the coolest of them all. See my three versions of the 817 case and you can find one like that to replace the bezel on yours as a worst case scenario. I hate to break the news otherwise, but it is highly unlikely you will find one of these bezels in the wild. You can email me if you have any other questions. There is a Buchere 817 case on Ebay now which has the correct bezel, but it would be a pricey fix. Hope this Helps. Let me know if you ever decide to sell the SAAF as well. Best, Darius

The Ref 817 cased models same as Viggen and SAAF
