Citizen 52-0110 Diver – Blue Bezel Insert…or Faded Black? Solved!

With thanks to Bert and Nick – Bert who was prepared to take the bezel off his diver and Nick who suggested it – we have an answer to the question….was the bezel blue  originally, or was it black and has faded? Well, as they say a picture (or three) paints a thousand words:

Looks black to me…..

Thanks Bert for being prepared to take your watch apart, and for the photos.
