What are you using as your base watch?

That bezel has the shape of the old Pulsar 100 / 150M divers and a Seiko that I just can't place at this time.

It is unlikely that the entire bezel will fit a 6309 or SKX based case.

EDIT: found it.

I don't think this style would suit - as it tapers near the insert the gap between that and the shroud would not look right
Just my 2p's worth

Those tuna bezels pics - the first one SBBN017 will fit a 6309 diver, rob at monsterwatches might be able to get you one. I don't think either of the golden tuna (7549, 7C46) bezels will fit. I'm not sure about the last one, I think I've seen a 7549-7010 tuna with a 6309 bezel. so the other way should work?
