With resolve more than sense of loss, I’m asking help from the OF brain trust to determine the value of a fine DN90 bezel that was lost while wearing my recently serviced 105.003-63 Ed White. Forum experts will be quick to recognize this DN90 was not original for this reference, which was issued with a DON90 bezel. Various watchmakers who’ve examined the watch have suggested the DN90 was likely a replacement for the original DON90 bezel when serviced between 1970 and 1990. The light-gray fade of the departed DN90, which precisely matched the attractive light-gray fade of the dial, suggests the bezel replacement occurred when the watch was young, perhaps in the 1970’s. (Photos follow) My hope is to make a fair insurance claim, and replace the lost bezel with a comparable example. As we all know, it’s difficult enough to appraise a DON90 bezel whose values have skyrocketed. But curiously, it seems even more difficult to determine accurate value of a DN90 bezel. Particularly one that shows age and matches a vintage dial. So I’m reaching out for help. Any recommendations or referrals for determining the value of this bezel for an honest insurance claim? The watchmaker who serviced the watch has been supportive. Yet, he said frankly that I may know more about the value of this vintage bezel than he did, and requested help. Though a relatively new watchmakers shop, these watchmakers are Omega certified, value vintage examples, and are conscientious. To be clear, I like this watchmaker and want to continue doing business with them. So our discussions have been directed toward finding a positive solution. Please note, the watchmaker recommended replacing the hands during service only because they had already been replaced previously, while the dial, case and movement appear to be original and in fine condition. The accompanying photograph of the DN90 bezel on the 105.003 was taken by the watchmaker at the time they accepted the watch for service. For those who may be wondering, the bezel disappeared during a sit-down dinner within an hour’s time that was clearly identified. There was no physical activity or knocking about that may have caused an impact. The watch has been worn, carefully, in rotation with others over a two-month period since it was serviced. The only circumstance imaginable that may have contributed to the bezel coming loose on this occasion was unusually high humidity during a rainstorm. Be assured, every step has been retraced many times and no stone left unturned in search of the wayward bezel, which despite best efforts has become a nagging concern. In effort to help other Speedmaster owners avoid the queasy feeling of checking the time, only to find your Speedmaster bezel missing, here’s a question for the watchmakers: How does one firmly seat a vintage bezel insert to prevent its loss? Particularly now that vintage Speedmaster bezels are difficult to replace and increasingly valuable. Thanks in advance for your ideas.
