DSSD bezel pearl

Recommended Posts

BravoDelta

I lost the pearl on my DSSD (¬_¬). There's just a hole there now. I've sourced these on ebay but my question is, are the Submariner and DSSD Pearl's the same? Or close enough?

Had the same happen to me. Everywhere was expensive so I just added one to the next order I placed with Mary. FYI, it was a pain in the butt to install as it was ever so slightly larger than the hole and I ended up having to drill.

I ended up ordering one from ali Express. After reading the descriptions it seems that pearls for the ceramic bezel have a smaller hole. So I ordered one that said it's for a Submariner ceramic bezel. Hopefully it will just drop in. Now for the waiting...

I took a chance on the Submariner one. The only one I found specifically for the ceramic Deep Sea was over $20.

Yeah, that's weird. I copied the direct link but it takes me to the signed in app. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 

Heres the store...

Here it is. It's tiny AF! Any tips on installing it?

Thank you! Perfect. I was envisioning that pearl launching out of my tweezers and lost forever.

You can use a 2 component epoxy glue or hypo cement!

How's the other side?

Does it fit exactly in the insert's hole?

It does have a little post on the other side but I havent checked the fit yet. Had to leave town for work. It'll have to wait till next week.

I got the pearl installed. Thanks @SteveA for the sticky tack tip :thumbsup2: I applied the glue to the back of the pearl and placed it in the hole. Job done for under 8 bucks.
