    Bezel action for me is not the best. It's the one and only flaw as far as I am concerned. I hate to say it, but my $300 Seiko has a better bezel action, for me anyway.

    The best I've ever used was a Tudor Pelagos, hands down.

    Bezel action is good/normal for me. Actually think it's a lot better than people were making it out to be... maybe because it's little thicker than the previous generations. I just pinch the bezel at 8 o'clock with the thumb and 2 o'clock with the middle finger and I stay in that range as I spin. No need to push down on the bezel.

    Thinking there may be some bezel variability. Mine was slightly, but clearly, better than the no date Sub or the two Tudor Pelagos pieces they had on hand.

    That's exactly what I do. I find it very positive and precise, with no slippage. It's different from my Pelagos for sure, which is still more precise, verging on stiff. I use it all the time and have no complaints. Wouldn't describe it as sub-Seiko level -- but then Seiko make a ton of bezels for a ton of divers.
