I’m just wondering what the consensus is on the best replacement bezel insert I can get for a 7548 Pepsi is? Fit, finish, font and lume pip size are all important to me. I am going to age it to go with the watch. I’m not a fan of replacement parts usually, but the current one looks pretty beat.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks for the heads up. Do you know if the yobokies bezel has the slight dish that the 7548 does?

Harold's 6309/7548 inserts are the best aftermarket one's I have seen. they are slightly sloped but not quite as much as oem. The surface texture is good and the Pepsi has great color balance, although I have never had an original side by side. The only deficiency is the lume is not great. I have never been able to understand why but I have seen that issue on the pip of many aftermarket inserts.

I have Yobokies 6309/6105 Bezel Inserts (Black, Blue, Pepsi, and Gold) and they are excellent quality. They are Flat with No inward slope. Harold made a batch of 6309 inserts with an inward slope a long time ago but they are long gone and he is no longer making them. I understand that Flat bezel inserts can be "pressed" to form an inward slope but I have never tried it. Perhaps someone who has experience doing this can chime in.

This is a Yobokies insert on my 700B. I'm pretty pleased with it. I needed to flip it outer edge down in a press to get it into the bezel then use the press to ease of inner edge down to get the required slope to the crystal. Whilst it fits perfectly I managed to crack the bezel at the pip with the last press (that it didn't really need!) I blame my crystal press and I have a new one now. Next time I might just sand it to fit lol!

Would definitely order them again and Harold is really quick at dispatching.

I looked up Yobokies 7548 bezels and they're a good repro.
The website's CONTACTS link isn't working though.
Can anyone point me to how I can contact him?
I'm looking for a 7548-700C insert.
