I am the proud owner of a 1000m Tridente that is my daily wearer and is not babied. Consequently I am going to need some spares!.

Anyone know where I can get a crystal and a bezel insert and how much they would be?

I seem to recall a similar thread in the past but it seems to have gone.

Cheers
Chris

The sapphire crystal will take a heck of a lot of abuse :) The bezel insert is about $60 installed IIRC...you might just write directly to MarcelloC for the latest prices.

BTW, bashed the crap out of my Tridente a week or so ago coming out of my bank...bezel insert dented and scrathed a little...crystal PERFECT :) So, I BTDT :)

Regards, Ted

Had my bezel insert replaced by Marcello C when it was in to have the crown replaced. Bezel insert was 16 Euros, total labour for both jobs was15 Euros, and they turned it around in a couple of days. I have to agree about the crystal, can't see you doing anything to it without totalling the watch (I know sapphire crystals can shatter, but it is extremely rare as far as I know).

Unfortunately the crystal already has a minir scratch. You have to look for it, but i know its there and it kind of bugs me. Don't know when/how it happened as it has not had any knocks at all in the 2 months I have had it.

Mind you though it sounds like sending it to Marcello for refurb is pretty cost effetive anyway so I will maybe contact them

Cheers

Chris
