    Picture a better bezel for the PlanetOcean

    hi pals, i was wondering about the bezel on this wonderful timepiece, the only flaw i think is its imo obsolete painted bezel.

    now that we have seem the new ProPlof sapphire bezel, and the Rolex ceramic bezels, and the new Aquaracer Soft-Feel scratch resistant bezel, or even the new oris ProDiver ceramic bezel, i think is time for an updated version of this awesome diver watch.

    what do you think about this?
    Rolex Daytona TT - Deepsea - Submariner Date ceramic - GMT Master TT ceramic - Submariner Blue Ceramic TT
    Omega Seamaster 2254 - Seamaster Pro Blue Ceramic - Planet Ocean 45.5mm cal 8500
    TagHeuer Aquaracer 300M - Aquaracer 500M - Link Bourne - Formula 1 44mm
    Oris Divers Date - Citizen Promaster Diver EcoDrive
    lots of Solar Casios

    I think the PO would look pimp with an orange sapphire bezel.

    Well, the bezel for the Planet Ocean is anodized aluminum...it's not painted.

    I do like the ceramic idea, but only if you could do it without making the bezel thicker on an already-thick watch. I'm not sure if you can also get the domed effect of the PO's bezel with ceramic or the other materials you mention, and that would be unfortunate.
