    In the early/mid 80sa friend of my fathers had a full faced digital watch that had a rotating bezel thst changed the mode on the watch(stopwatch, dual time, alarm etc). As an 8yo (thereabouts) I was completely besotted. My life long fetish for watches started right there and then.

    It could have been a Seiko, Citizen or even Casio. I have know idea. I remember it being rated to 200m water resistance. I'd love to get my hands on one. I had a cheap Kmart version of it that fell apart I begged my mum to buy me for my birthday.

    Probably not what you're looking for, but Rolex has two mechanical watches that are set/programmed using the bezel - Yachtmaster II and SkyDweller.

    I'd buy the SkyDweller in an instant if I had the money. Hmmmm, I think I could sell a kidney? Lol

    Maybe this? Seiko Giugiaro, February 1983 and bought new. Scratched AF but whatever; wore it everyday from freshman in HS to halfway through university. Everything still works, even the light. Has the loudest, most unique alarm I've ever heard.

    Found it. Its a Seiko Astronaut A827. A rubber construction. Making me think it was a divers watch. That and the fact the time I saw my fathers friend we were always island hopping and travelling the Great Barrier Reef where we were always diving for coral life. It comes in a metal construction as well with the part number A829.
