What makes this such a functional dive tool though is the combination of the dial layout and the rotating bezel. First, there’s the bezel, which isn’t all that unusual. It’s uni-directional and has a matte black ceramic inlay with markings in both white and red, the latter for the last 15 minutes in the countdown. The matte black dial, on the other hand, is what sets this watch apart. At three o’clock is a slightly oversized sub-dial displaying the hours with a luminous hand, and to its left is a smaller sub-dial that shows the seconds. The most prominent feature though is that large arrow-shaped minute hand with luminous fill and a bright red outline. Essentially if you’re using this on a dive you set the bezel against that minute hand and then just have a single, bold countdown to worry about.
