The sixty-click bezel has, in a departure from standard dive-watch practice, no knurling at all; however, the slightly roughened surface provides a good grip, and the bezel feel is pleasantly exact. There is no play to speak of at each detent, and the sound of each bezel click is oddly pleasant to listen to. Weird as this may sound, it has a rich, rounded quality which, when combined with the precision of its operation, makes you feel like you’re interacting with a piece of real precision machinery. The only downside to the bezel is that, with no knurling, it’s somewhat more difficult to turn with wet hands, although it’s still possible. One additional use for the bezel is that you can use it to help set the watch, by turning the bezel so that the inverted triangle at the zero position is on the nearest five-minute mark to the position of the minute hand. The movement, an ETA 2824, is adjusted to five positions but, without minute markers on the dial, setting the watch to the exact minute can require some estimating, and using the bezel as a visual reference helps clarify the actual position of the minute hand.
