Response to 6542 Bakelite Bezel Inserts



There are at least two different styles of bakelite insert and two different bezels for the 6542.

One style has the usual arrangement seen on all Rolex sports watches where the insert simply clicks into the bezel ... although I'm thinking the bakelite inserts may have been bonded into place

The second style sees a tab /slot system where the outer edge of the bakelite insert has half a dozen (?) very small notches that correspond with tabs on the bezel itself.

There may be even more styles I guess - I don't know if this also trancends to different styles of font or general presentation.
