Looks good and you're quite correct, the bezel on the Dartmouth is 42mm, compared to the 41mm on the C65 Trident Diver and GMT.
Thanks !

Are you saying that the bezel of the DM is different from the C65 Diver ? I thought it was just a different insert...

And by the way, is it me or the crown is also bigger on the DM ? Mine measures a solid 8mm...

Yes, the whole Bezel is slightly bigger on the Dartmouth.

The crown on the Trident Diver is a solid 7mm diameter (just measured mine).

You'll also notice the stem of the crown on the Dartmouth is 1mm longer, to provide clearance for the bezel.

I do love the different bezel on my Dartmouth and the crown, gives a different look to it over the C65 Trident Diver handwind.
