  5. In that case, you may get lucky and find a thicker aftermarket tension spring, there are a few on the bay, here's one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/BEZEL-INSERT-TENSION-FLAT-SPRING-FOR-ROLEX-SUBMARINER-1680-5508-5512-5513-5517-/160907267371?hash=item2576d20d2b:g:LEAAAOSw4A5YpNfR
  6. Hopefully you won't need to do that. Have you tried the assembly together with the crystal on the midcase yet?

  8. Try it in situ with the crystal you may find it becomes tighter. Also, there should be a tension spring between the bezel and retaining ring that you can bend slightly to cause friction.
  9. Great tip! Thanks for posting! Looking forward to seeing your finished 5508.
