Nautilus Bezel Question

Hello I have some question:

1) Is it possible to buy additional gold nautilus bezel? because mine have many long scratches and some little dent. So I will have 2 bezel. How much is the cost?

2) How much is the cost to replace a nautilus gold bezel? I dont like being polished.


Nautilus is a great watch, but the bezel is very easy to scratch, I always wear short T shirt.

When service time Patek can change the bezel but you won't be able to keep your old bezel.......

Another words...... They charge you an arms & legs for your new bezel and yet they keep your old one........

what is the price of replacing the bezel?

do we have to put special note to patek that i want a new bezel instead of polishing?

so it is best to give the patek to service without bezel, keep the bezel at home and do the servicing?

I think SS cost around 4k YG maybe 2-3 times more.
Patek decides if they replace it or just refurbish it for you the old one during service however I think if you really insist they replace it for you .The best if you ask the SC or your AD to get in touch with PP regarding this matter .One thing is absolutely sure , they won t let you keep the old bezel basically they replace parts which are returned .
Also note there is no general bezel for Nauitilus ,those are not interchangable rather matched to the case in the factory .

Hope it helps .

PS a laser welded or refinished bezel is as good as new after 3polishes they need to replace it anyhow .

I question whether Patek would even work on a watch where the bezel was intentionally removed by the owner solely to obtain a new and retain the old bezel. I also think there is a good of delicate watch making involved in removing the bezel which I would leave to PP to do.

I also thought around 7-10K, sometimes when there is no stated price for these things as they are unusual the price is very reasonable.
