VICTORINOX  I.N.O.X i bought this watch a couple of years back and it realy is a stunner, i have always compared it to the Longines Hydroconquest, the quarts one and they both use the same good quality ETA Quartz movement, its also a bit chunkier than the Longines so that is a plus for me.
Not long after i bought it i bashed the bezel affraid  and my OCD kicked in to the point i couldn't wear the watch Crying or Very sad  i spent months trying to buy a new bezel, Victorinox wouldn't even answer my pleading email Sad  but i finally found one for sale from a Norwegian seller cheers  it arrived and its NOS as described, i put it to one side then forgot about it until this morning Rolling Eyes
Sooo 30 mins later and IMO one of the nicest Dress Divers is back to its former glory and is glued to my wrist Very Happy

the bezel, i know it looks like trivial damage but to me it was the end of the world Rolling Eyes
i should add that normally i would re brush and polish this type of damage, but unfortunately a lathe and a angled jig would be required as its so finely done

Looking good IMO, the lugs on this watch are an unusual 21mm wide, but i discovered a 22mm Mesh fits perfectly and fill the lugs just right'

Looking at the middle photo it looks as though their is no crystal , it really is crystal clear .

A cracking looking watch , I can see how the damage to bezel would kick your OCD off though , you should have bought this and really protected the watch

the crystal is sapphire with triple coated AR and i have the bezel protector, they come with the watch as standard, i would probably use it if i was going fishing or similar but shouldnt really need it for day to day although i clearly do Sad
