The turned bezel ones looked a bit bigger.
I have one with blue dial, you'll be surprised how good they look with leather strap.

Rolex will insist on changing the case, bracelet and clasp. They will charge you for the new parts and keep the “badly damaged” parts.

seriously I have no idea

if I bought a Ferrari, and mod it to liberty walk, I'm pretty sure Ferrari is willing to service my engine right? instead of stripping of my kit and ask me to change back to ori panels and bumper n telan my liberty kit

Many years ago, Rolex used to allow Sohai’s like myself to mod our Rolex watches with aftermarket diamond bezels and non original dials. They even allow us to swap parts from other references as long as we pay for them.

Since the great price goreng of 2016, Rolex is no longer that accommodating in regards to parts swap.

They even stopped sending me Christmas cards in the mail..

You mean Rolex do the modding but those diamond you source else where?

Let say a very old model of Rolex, and parts is no longer available. Will Rolex replace it with what available? Or they will return the watch as it is?

No bro. You buy those diamond bezel yourself from BKK and get a private watchmaker you can trust to swap out the bezel.

In the past, RSC don’t mind servicing watches with third party accessories like diamond bezel. Nowadays, they will confiscate the part and return it to factory specifications while charging you for the new factory bezel.
