Turdle coin edge bezel suggestions

Post by Ruggs » Fri Jan 11, 2019 12:50 pm

I picked up Dave's Padi NAFT and am looking to swap the bezel for a coin edge. Do you guys have a favorite?

Turdle coin edge bezel suggestions

I have the one from Crystal Times on my orange Turdle. It’s just okay. It looks good, but action is rough compared to the OEM bezel.
If I was doing it again I’d buy from One Second Closer. He goes by Dr. Seikostan on eBay I think.

You can buy directly from his website as well. I bought 2 bezel inserts from him that way. A bit cheaper. Shipping takes a while since he is in Poland. He’s great to deal with.

I just bought one from L.C.B.I (lumed ceramic bezel inserts). Should arrive soon.

I think it's an angled coin edge. The others are all perfectly vertical.

I was maybe looking to swap my skx009 bezel for a thinner one, to try and make the watch look thinner when viewed from the side.

Shall I just check out the same guys?

Thanks

Definitely the best coin edge that I've tried so far. Bezel action is very good and it looks great. It is angled, unlike the other coin edge bezels, which is a nice touch.

That looks much nicer than my Crystal Times Bezel.

That looks dope! It also puts the SRP at a different level quality imo.
