    Where could I find a pepsi bezel-insert that slopes inward?

    Hi

    I am looking for a bezel insert that slopes inward but having a hard time finding brands/models that used these.
    As you know Seiko uses mostly flat inserts and Rolex uses domed insert.


    However I am looking for this type off insert, any guesses which aftermarket or which brand used these?





    Cheers

    I know you mentioned Seiko uses flat bezels,but that one struck me as an internal bezel rather than external,the seiko 5 sports watch below seems have to an inward sloping internal bezel...............

    The bezel I pictured is actually an external bezel. And not too sure if they ever made a pepsi internal bezel which I could use as an external.
    But I think I'll just try to fit a Flat seiko insert or even just buy a new bezel with flat insert and keep the original for óriginality sake as the one I have is badly faded.

    If that is your original insert in the photo, I don't see what is wrong with it?
    You could use a Seiko one as long as it fits, a little tweaking would make it slope inwards too.

    Get a Pepsi bezel, and then use a crystal press with a top and bottom die the right size where it'll hold the outside of the bezel insert but the top die will be the dimension of just a bit bigger than the ID of the insert.. press it and let it flare downwards.

    I saw someone do it somewhere recently.. to copy the inward shape of Seiko 6309 bezels.

    As Apollo pointed out.. Pepsi bezels are blue and red, not black ;)

    No that original bezel-insert was taking from Ebay a few months ago. Mine is literally on bare metal, it is for a ZRC Spatiale 300. (The french diver brand which was used by Jacques Costeau)
