Your opinion on 2 different sub bezels

I've managed to acquire 2 bezels for my PAM 25H. There are many differences between them, which requires an explanation. What do you think?

-Both bezels are legit, but different generations
-One of them is "aftermarket", the other is legit
-They are both wrong...not OEM

I didn't do this as a poll because I want to know your reasoning. I don't just want an answer to my question, I really would like to build on my knowledge of this watch that I love. Thank you for taking time to help me

Additional info:
-The lume pip glows equally on both bezels. It's about the same brightness as the numbers on the dial.
-Neither bezel is magnetic. The rivets are not magnetic on either bezel
-Bezel 'B' has a little extra cut-out near the divet where the nylon bezel ring attaches

Why are they different?

Yeah, I was looking for insight into why they are different.

Is one of them "aftermarket"? Are they from different generations or models of subs?

Any idea why there are so many differences?

-'A' has shiny rivets that appear to have machine-mark swirlies
-'B' has flat rivets that aren't shiny

-'A' has taller rivets than 'B'

-The '45' on the 'A' bezel has a '4' with a flat top.
-The '45' on the 'B' bezel has a '4' that is pointy on top.

-'A' has the numbers packed more closely. There is little space between the '3' and '0' in '30'
-'B' has a lot of space between digits. There is a gap between the '3' and '0' in '30'.

I've been scrubbing the net for images to try to put each bezel with a particular model and generation and I'm having a heck of a time.

Anyone able to match these to specific version of sub?

Much thanks!
