Can the bezel on an Orient Mako XL be changed?

I am a complete novice when it comes to watch mods and have never owned an automatic watch (even though my 92 y.o. pop worked for Bulova for 30+ years).

I really like the Orient Mako XL (EM75005R) with the white face. But I do not like the black bezel.

The MAKO XL CEM75004B has a black face w/an orange bezel...(me likey anything orange)

1) Is it possible to change a bezel on a dive watch or will it ruin it's abilty to be "water proof"?

2) If it is possible to change a bezel without ruining it's water tightness, how would one get the extra bezel?

3) Is there a way to contact Orient and see if they will do it themselves?

4) Does it make more sense to get the orange bezeled Orient and swap-out the face?


Or is this whole idea just dumb?

Thanks for any advice.
