1. ## Bezels (rotating)

Can someone kindly take a second to educate a new comer and explain to me what use my 1-12 rotating or 12 hr bezel has or is it

just for looks?

Thanks

2. Hello,

Rotating bezels are used to measure elapsed time. So if your bezel has 1-12 on it, then you would rotate the bezel pip to wherever the minute hand happens to be, and then each number on the bezel would represent 5 minutes from the current time. The 1-12 just happens to be the way the bezel is laid out, whereas a traditional bezel is labeled 1-60 representing each minute. On your particular watch you just happen to have to do some multiplication to figure out the elapsed time. I hope this helps.

Multiplication; the bezel has done the addition/subtraction for you.

I don't can you give me an example?

much appreciated

Once the minute hand reaches "1" 1x5=5minutes elapsed, "2" 2x5=10 minutes elapsed, and so on. Hope this helps.

Got it

Thanks for you guidance

The 12 hour version is intended for telling the time in another timezone; rotate it so the hour reads right. Or you can use it as a minute timer by doing the multiplication.

It happens to be a chronograph also do you have a simplistic example for this application ie. distance?

i'll understand if you all feel you've beaten this subject senseless
