Bi-Directional Bezel

What is a Bi-Directional Bezel?

A bi-directional bezel is a rotating bezel that can be turned in both clockwise and counterclockwise directions. It is commonly found on pilot watches, dive watches, and GMT watches. Bi-directional bezels offer enhanced usability, allowing the wearer to track elapsed time, measure intervals, or read a second time zone more conveniently. The absence of a unidirectional click mechanism makes it easier to set the bezel but may require additional attention to prevent accidental displacement.
