Hi, picked up this rough fuchsia bezel.

Put the bezel in the freezer for a few minutes.

How would an insert get that chewed up? Did the seller know how it was damaged in that way?

Looks to me like corrosion from maybe salt water exposure. Makes me wonder if it came off a "found" watch that spent time on the ocean floor - diving area?

A word of caution. When inserts begin to chip and deteriorate like the OPs, they have a tendency to continue down that path. I had one on an old Sub that, it seemed like, every time I glanced at it, the chipping seemed worse! Thanks to Springer, I got a replacement, but by the time I removed the original one it looked terrible. .So..careful how you handle it!

I think you should leave it in that ring, given the chipping.
