    Any internal bezel watches rotated with an external bezel?

    I find them quite interesting. Please post your/other external bezel turning internal bezel watches! Here's one I've taken a liking towards: the Eterna Kontiki Sports LE with a COSC ETA 2824-2 movement, ref. 1590.41.40.0215, in SS and 41mm.

    I've got the Eterna Kontiki GMT (pretty much the same watch you posted, but the bezel has the names of cities instead of numbers). It's a cool idea, but I find the bezel extremely tough to turn. It's not ratcheted, and uses a thick rubber gasket to provide resistance. My fingers hurt after turning it one full rotation.....it's that tight.

    My Sturmanskie "TV" has an external knob to turn the internal bezel.

    Too many watches, only two wrists and never enough time...

    Thats how most internal bezel watches are turned. The OP was asking for one that uses an external ring to rotate the internal bezel.
    Lots of dive watches.

    The Seiko series of watches known as the Landmonsters have this setup. Sorry I only have pictures of the two I moded a few years back:

    Just like the poster above, I have to say that this was a hard-turning bezel.

    A couple of the ones above are rotated using a crown. Instead, I meant the external bezel's rotation causing the internal bezel to rotate.
    A 120-click version would be interesting to find.

    I discovered this too, with the Eterna Kontiki. I guess the same logic goes with turning the crown to change the time with the hands.

    Or, better yet, an external crown changing the internal bezel. I'm no watchmaker, but I'm sure someone else here can explain the mechanics of it.
