Turdle coin edge bezel suggestions

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

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
