The ultra-rare short-depth SKFR switch. The switch turned out to not be as shallow as believed, owing to having an external jumper.

The lid of the switch is secured at the sides instead of the front and back, which reduces the size further. Also, the Alps branding is at the front instead of at the rear of the switch.
