    I do have the bezel and would like to know is there a standard sixe replacment or do I measure bezel? If so from just before the back of clips?

    Carefully measure the bezel opening in the North-South and East-West directions and try to come up with a glass about
    1/8" less than the opening. If you have a cast bezel use the the smaller of the two dimentions, for a thin sheet metal (flexable) bezel you can average the two measurements.

    You will also have to determine if the original glass was flat or convex.
