UPDATE

Watchmaker just called. Apparently the bezel will not fit with the current plastic crystal that is on the watch. He has to replace it with a newer, updated, sapphire crystal (Rolex). Gave him the green light. So looks like I'll be getting a sharper bezel and brand new sapphire crystal!!!!

Your watch is suppose to have a plastic crystal not sapphire... The original bezels for your model suppose to weigh around 2.5 grams... The newer ones are 5 grams...

Will not be original but if you're happy with the new look and not the vintage look then cool... hopefully he sends you a good magnification crystal and it won't be rolex original... Only aftermarket Crystal's are modified to change from plastic to sapphire, rolex don't sell those..
