My 16760 Fat Lady.
When I had my last service I had the AD swap the bezel for an all black for a change. I've retained the original so I can revert back to fully original.

I told the dealer what I had in mind and he said no problem but £50 cost for original Rolex all black insert.
I thought that was pricey at the time (about 5 years ago) but also had him get me a new coke insert which is still unused in the Rolex sealed plastic container.
Seems like I got these cheap looking at current prices.

Me too. I like it even more because it isn't something I ever see my dad buying now. But hey, those were the early 90's...
