    Would an ARF/vrf assembly fit the noob?

      It would be worth trying bro. I think the retaining ring would have to be changed too. I think the ARF/VRF groove (even older Noob groove) would not mate with the Noob Pepsi retaining ring lip and still let the bezel sit at a proper height relative to the crystal. But it could just be that the Noob Pepsi bezel's missing upper half of its groove was simply omitted from the mold to save material. In any event you would likely also need a different hytrel ring, as you know the new Noob gasket has a unique stairstep profile cut that wouldn't likely be compatible with a full groove bezel.



      BTW the "top step" goes in face down, into the bezel detent.

            Having a problem with the bazel that won't sit at all into the case. Can take it off with wind hehe.

            Any hints of how to get this to fit correct?

              You need to remove the insert from the bezel. Then remove the gasket from the bezel, seat the bezel on the case and see if the gasket is reusable. Look at my first posts in this thread.

                  Thanx for your answer, I struggle a little understanding of your pictures. Almost shore I do it correct, but wont sit. Hear a click but just keep falling off. Can you try to explain how to get it back on step by step?

                  I think its the 3 pin click ring that does the problem.

                      The the rubber gasket is there, I see that. What is the mechanism that holds the bezel together? I used the watch and it just fell off.

                        So you understand, The bazel fell off, and need to reconnect it to the case again. The Retaining ring with the 3 points must be the connecting points, that keeps it together with the case?

                                You have to remove the glued on insert. Then assemble it on with the steps I give you. Just use 3m tape or rubber cement. Very easy and only held on by the plastic gasket
