Rotating bezels are rising in popularity these days. In fact, in the past years, most bezel watches already feature a rotating bezel. These watch accessories are usually seen on divers watches because of their useful underwater features and functions.
Rotating bezels vary in features, but all function the same. Some rotating bezels are unidirectional, meaning these only rotate counterclockwise. On the other hand, other rotating bezels are bi-directional, rotating both clockwise and counterclockwise.
The disc is an important part of every watch bezel, particularly rotating bezels. The outer disc of the bezel insert is situated into 60 divisions corresponding to 60 minutes or an hour. This feature is the main reason why rotating bezels are popular among divers watches. The 60 divisions indicate an hour, corresponding to the time that oxygen in a standard scuba oxygen tank usually lasts.
The red arrow on the bezel should be placed at the 12 o’clock mark on a divers watch before going into the water. This function gives the diver a marker to show how many minutes have passed since the dive. That way, the diver can estimate the amount of time he needs to ascend back into the surface with just enough oxygen left.

The SKX007 is known for its humble price despite being part of the proud lineage of Seiko’s classic diver’s watches that go way back 1965. Going in second place, the SKX013 often gets compared to the 007 because of their distinct features. However, the SKX013 is better for watch collectors who love a smaller watch since its size is 38mm x 13mm, making it a little bit tinier compared to the SKX007 that is 42mm x 13mm. Nonetheless, both timepieces are widely known in the market for their esteemed divers watch features and function.
