    How to use the 24H bezel for count up!

    Hello!
    I realized that the 24 H turnable bezel easily can be used for count up. Turn the bezel so it lines up with the minute hand. To read out, just multiply the hour with factor 2.5!

    Why so complicated?

    We know one full cycle of the minute hand equals to 60 minutes. Therefore if 24 is 0 minutes. 12 will be 30 minutes. From this we can count that each number step (24 to 2, 2 to 4, 4 to 6 etc.) equals to 5 minutes. No need for multiplications at all here.

    Why 60/2 + 1*5 is less complicated than 14*2.5 ? o_O

    Huh? 30 plus 5 is more complicated than 14 * 2.5?

    This is faster and not so complicated when used to it :)

    It really is...I mean, its stupid easy to tell elapsed time just by visually glancing at the dial; no math is needed. All you need the bezel for is to mark the start of timing and the rest is easier than reading normal time...

    I'm having a great laugh; I needed it.

    Edit: I'm still laughing at it! LMAO!!!

    Question: how come the bezel reads 24 but the dial reads 22? That makes the calculations even harder... LOL!

    I dont think you get it. Its not very easy to read out 42,5 minutes starting from 7 minutes to twelve for example. I promise you I do it much faster my way :)
