Just making sure you have the genuine bezel spring

Pop the bezel,, there should be a bezel retention ring under it, flip the bezel if you don’t see it, sometimes it gets stuck underneath. Take the bezel retention ring and fold is some so that it’s no longer completely flat. Place it back over the plexi and snap the bezel back on the case, this should cause some friction and resistance so that the bezel doesn’t freely rotate. You may have to give it a few tries until you find the right “tension”. Of course this is assuming there is a bezel rentention ring under the bezel

Good luck!
