    You can either count up on your dive timing ("normal" bezel style) or count down (Seabattalion style). I actually prefer the latter and have that watch on my list to try on.

    Ahhhh thanks guys.
    Does that mean though that the bezel is unidirectional in a CW direction?

    The bezel is bidirectional, 60 click.

    This is a beautiful watch, but the fact it doesn't have a steel bracelet makes me weep

    A Titanium watch with a stainless steel bracelet ? If a bracelet, it should be made out of Ti as well. Just saying.

    For continuity true, or if you're trying to keep the weight down. Personally I don't care and think the Marinus bracelet goes great with this, and I'm not normally a bracelet fan.

    FWIW, the clasp for the Seebataillon's rubber strap is steel. The finish perfectly matches the watch finish but it's steel. And huge.
