The 'bezel' explained
A watch’s lunette (bezel) is a metal or plastic frame in which the glass is clamped. And some watches have a ring around the watch glass. Usually this ring is rotatable, often bi-directional (it rotates both counter-clockwise and clockwise) but sometimes it only rotates in one way (counterclockwise).
The bezel has several purposes: indication of a different time zone, calculation or measurement. Dive watches are usually equipped with a rotating bezel so that the remaining dive time can be read. To prevent accidentally rotating the bezel, dive watches are provided with a bezel that can only rotate counterclockwise. For safety reasons, this ensures that your remaining dive time in such cases may be shorter but never ‘longer’. Check our selection below.
