Today is the flip-side of yesterday except....it's green! Another Aragon Divemaster Automatic.

SII NH36A Day & Date 24 jewel Japan movement, 45mm stainless steel case. 22mm Stainless steel bracelet with push button fold over clasp & safety. Screw-down crown. K1 Crystal. WR-200 meters.

Side note:

This green version was my first Aragon Divemaster NH36 which I put in an old watch winder which had an all fabric interior. Three days had gone by before I decided to strap on the watch again and to my horror I discovered that this 45mm size watch was just a bit too big for the winder. While spinning around in the winder for 3-days the bezel kept brushing against the padded fabric interior and eventually rubbed off some of the green paint on the bezel between the 10 & 20 minute markers on the bezel. A painfull discovery no doub, but from that point on I always check the clearance of every watch I put in my winders.

Looks kinda cool, I'd brush out the 0-10minute space too and call it the cautionary color marker for the last 20 minutes..(-; Nice watch, great movement.
Such a shame when bad things happen to good watches. You should reach out to Aragon and see if they'll replace the bezel.

I call and asked about having the bezel replaced and was told that the bezel and the complete underlying case was a single unit. Replacement would cost the same as a NEW Divemaster NH36, so it was not worth the repair cost. Guess the blemish will simply have to serve as part of this watches story.
