How to use the Bezel?
The Citizen NY0085-86EE is a rugged diving watch equipped with a unidirectional rotating bezel. The bezel is an important feature of diving watches and serves as a timer to measure dive time and ensure that the diver has enough air to safely return to the surface. At www.watchhouse.de, we have thought about how to use the watch as a countdown timer as well. There are two main methods for using the bezel: as a stopwatch and as a countdown timer.
Using as a Stopwatch
Using the bezel as a stopwatch is simple. You rotate the bezel to align the luminous dot on the bezel with the minute hand when you want to start timing. The bezel rotates in only one direction, so you cannot accidentally turn back time. Time is measured by tracking the minute hand as it moves around the bezel.
Using as a Countdown Timer
Using the bezel as a countdown timer requires a bit more planning and preparation. You need to know in advance how long you want to dive. Make sure that you have enough air to safely return to the surface. Set the luminous dot on the bezel to the position that corresponds to the dive time. For example, if you want to dive for 20 minutes, turn the luminous dot counterclockwise from the minute hand to the 20-minute mark.
As soon as you are underwater, time is measured by watching the minute hand as it moves around the dial. When the minute hand reaches the luminous dot on the bezel, your allotted dive time has elapsed. At this point, you should already be out of the water.
You know, when it comes to diving, you need to have the right equipment. A dive watch is just one of those things that people tend to fancy. Sure, it's got a certain rugged charm to it, but let's be real: it's not a true diving computer.
Don't get me wrong, the Bezel is a nifty little tool to have. It can be used as a stopwatch or countdown timer, whichever tickles your fancy. And it can definitely help you keep track of your air supply, ensuring you have enough to safely resurface.
But let's not kid ourselves, it's more of an accessory than a necessity. Sure, it might look cool on your wrist, but if you're serious about diving, you're going to need a proper diving computer.
In the end, it all comes down to personal preference. If you want a cool-looking dive watch that can help you keep track of time and air supply, then the Citizen NY0085-86EE is a great choice. But if you want a serious diving tool, you'll need to look elsewhere.
