Any DSSD owners notice your bezel rotates too easily?

I've noticed that the bezel on my DSSD turns very easily. So much so that it has changed positions a few clicks while on my wrist and wearing a jacket. I've seen the schematic for the bezel and it has a number of springs that support ball bearings that the bezel floats on. Im wondering if the spring that holds up the notched piece of metal that engages the grooves on the underside of the bezel is looser than it should be. This wouldn't be an ideal situation if you are diving and your bezel rotates while during your dive. Anybody else experience this?

I have noticed that I line mine up with the 12 and when I look at it a couple days later it seems to have moved a click or two "on its own". I don't really worry about it that much. Since I got a winder it is the only clicking and turning I do on my watches.

It's been brought up several times. Yes the DS seems to turn easier than the Sub or SD.

I have a first year model release and mine has never moved even a hair.

My DSSD is a completely different story - super hard to rotate the bezel after a few years. May need to clean it a bit.
