Several morons got the idea to "cut out" GB bezels for easy lever setting!

Can anyone imagine such a thing?

Not only does it molest/butcher GBs, but it can allow dust and "other things" into the watch, possibly harm the hands, etc.

WHAT A STUPID IDEA!

Noted. Will avoid. I'm the lookout for a half a dozen whole ones.

I've got a L-size and a J-size early Howard movement that need cases, and one 16-size Waltham, and one 18s.
