    Default Help with jardur 960 bezel

    I am eager to resolve a problem with a vintage Jardur 960 Chrono. The bezel does not rotate and is fixed into one position. I know that not every bezel is made to turn, but I am thinking that the 960 was not one of those. If it is meant to rotate is it possible that it is missing a spring of some description. Can anyone confirm, as there seems a lot of contradictory info on the Jardur.








    Thanks in advance.

    Hi (Name),

    Not sure.. it probably needs an angled wire underneath to make it spin but if it is too tight then maybe it is the right bezel for the wrong version.. this guy is a watchmaker and restored one of yours he may know the way to go with it... Watchmaker Blog

    Thanks, Al.

    I contacted Richard as you suggested and the bottom line is that it is meant to rotate and in his experience they tend to become too loose rather than tighten. It is possible someone has put it out of true round to tighten it - basically it's a case of having to live with it as is as the risk of taking off metal or trying to true it could permanently disfigure it or make it too loose. Better to have a tight bezel than no bezel, so problem fixed.
