      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...
