Not sure what a side bar is sorry but is the bezel split , looking at the photo it looks like two independant bezels . If so I have never seen this before

Always exciting to get a new watch, specially if it's one you have wanted for ages.  It would be great to see a few more pictures when it arrives. Very Happy

Receiving a watch endorsement from you has made me chuffed, as it means my watch is probably half decent. Excuse my ignorance what exactly is a 2441 movement and who makes it?
