    PO Bezel uni-directional?

    I can only get the bezel to turn counter-clockwise but have read it is uni-directional.

    Seeking the wisdom of the board on this matter.

    uni means it turns one side only so there is nothing to worry about. bi-directional commenly seem on gmt watches turn both ways.

    The reason why its uni-directional is because it's a diving watch. When underwater, it will only turn in the direction to "lose time" -- mitigating a situation where one would run out of air by accidentally turning it in the wrong direction.

    If you want it to turn the other way too, you could 'use the force'.

    Sorry, couldn't resist........ As the OP said, just counter clockwise.
