Hello everyone,
First off all I hope all of you and your loved ones are happy and healthy.
Now coming to the topic. I just bought this Marathon H3 watch. But it does not have box and papers. I bought the watch for $95 USD. I need you input on the buy and the watch. And the second input I need from you guys is that the bezel is moving freely, any ideas on how to fix it or will I have to buy a new bezel?

Thank you in advance
Stay safe and happy.

Hey Abdullah, so great to see you, and right back at you with
everyone doing safe, and staying sane on your end as well. 馃檪
Really hope things get better for everyone, and soon sir.

Well honestly have to totally congratulate you on not only an
extremely cool watch, but an excellent deal too ! 馃槑 ..Loose
bezel, or not, it still looks fantastic, and like such an impressive
watch. With the bezel though, have read that it could maybe be
a gasket, or perhaps spring. Which can be bent to help tighten
the bezel if you take the bezel off. But I am not sure if you want
to do it yourself. So either you could try to fix the spring, or get
a new spring, or gasket.

In any case, a BIG congrats 2 U on the watch !!! 馃榾 Enjoy it !

Here is a video showing the bezel spring in a Vostok for you btw:

Marathon is a good outfit.

Would appear that the bezel issue is not uncommon on these watches.

Sounds like it could be a bezel click spring issue which, depending on the problem, is quite repairable. Often the spring is bent and can be sorted by bending the tab on the spring. Replacing the spring is easy enough too.

If you are comfortable with removing the bezel, this will allow you to see exactly what's going on. Alternatively, get a good watchmaker to sort it for you.

Thank you guys. Yes that's the plane. I did try to find that small opening on the bezel where you can insert a tool or a knife to remove the bezel but could not find it. So I think it's best to go to a watch maker.
