Well Jack at IWW has it now. Did send him a Email to make sure every thing I sent him was enough to put it back together never got a reply back. He is busy with work so it's the waiting game with no time line now I guess.

Re: Cool looking new Evant Decodiver

If they had a flat bezel insert there watches would look better. Just can't stand that bezel ring looks like it's shaped like a halve donut just don't care for the way it is shaped it would bug me every time I looked at the time they seem to use it on every model.
