Damn it Seiko. I didn’t even notice it myself...

He’s right. The bezel is not even useful on this. Why??? Track seconds with a bezel? That’s some backwards fu$&ing pageantry.

Always something....
You shut up. Bezels are awesome. Life should have more clicky bezels.

Yeap, way easier to turn the bezel than looking for the chrono on a digital watch in order to time something.

Only place I've read 21mm lugs is that Oceantime blog, sooooo I'm not convinced yet.

Love the looks but can't say I'm feeling this one over the recent golden solar release.

Would have been nice if there was some sort of technology which could incorporate the bezel operation into the LCD for bezel functions, but that would be more money and I'm not sure if the WR would be sacrificed?

If it can be had in the <$300 camp it'll be a winner. I suppose you can still mark time with the bezel if you time it right to the display.

I don't get how the bezel works.

Normally you move the bezel to the hand, which is your reference point. It then marks time from there. The digital timer on this is always going to count from the 12 position...so why have a rotating bezel that can't be rotated in actual use?

Is this a bit naff or am I missing something obvious?

From what I've read the bezel does rotate, and the minutes are tracked digitally sound the outer edge, functioning like a regular minute hand.

I guess you can’t ask for anything more than that.

I’ll be interested to see the street price for the gold.

Yeah, I get what you mean. I wonder how easy that would to read in the water.

Still not a fan of the screwed case back :shrug:

Screwed casebacks seem to hold up pretty well on G-Shocks.
If someone tells you "There's no such thing as a stupid question", have him list a watch for sale on WUS.

While it has your fully indexed bezel, it is part of the Fieldmaster line, and is in no way implied to be a dive watch.
