fitting crystal to out-of-round bezel

I'm working on a Chatelaine, c. 1957, whose bezel is out of round by about 0.15 to 0.20 mm. The center part of the case measures perfectly round to 0.00 mm.

Langford that just sold on eBay

I was tempted to bid on this in spite of the price, since I understand it to be a rare model.
