      Thanks for the feedback!

      The bezel ring is in good condition externally, but is loose and will pop off with very little pressure (there are a couple of pieces broken off on the underside). I picked it up for £20 off eBay as I really liked the look of it. I didn't expect it to be so small to be honest, but I still like it. A local repair man said he'd charge £35 to service it and polish the crystal. He suggested gluing the ring in place, although he said he'd leave that for me to do... I have looked around a few watch shops here (Edinburgh), but am struggling to find 16mm stainless steel straps (the 'flip/clasp' kind, like a Rolex). I might go for a canvas strap though...
