Bezel operation advice

Bezel operation advice

Postby Normcash » August 28th 2014, 1:17pm

Hi,

Forum Noob here.

I've recently bought my third Hamilton and at the risk of sounding a bit thick, I wonder if someone could give me some advice on the correct operation and set-up of the dual bezels? I can't seem to find anything about it in the manual.

The watch is a H77525553 Khaki Automatic, http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hamilton-H77525553-Khaki-Automatic-Watch/dp/B005MSQQ1W/ref=sr_1_91?s=watch&ie=UTF8&qid=1409256606&sr=1-91&keywords=hamilton+automatic

The outer bezel is delineated from 0 to 60 minutes and features a gap through which you can view an inner black bezel featuring airport codes. Both bezels are independently movable. Maybe I'm being a little dumb, but I just can't puzzle out how to set them up!!

Help!

We have a couple of Hamilton people here who can provide the correct answer for you. I am sure they will chime in. I might suggest an intro in the introduction forum though. Something like this works well

Nice watch by the way. Dual time zones are always fun.

Did you play 1st base for the Tigers?

Finding out the time is about as difficult as finding a cheesburger.

Nice movement (ETA2893) , features are unnecessarily complicated and a bit awkward to use ....here is the best user friendly explanation (already posted by an owner) I can find.

"The crown at 9 o'clock rotates the airport code dial, the crown at 4 o'clock rotates the bezel and the crown at 2 o'clock adjusts the GMT hand, date and time in 2 different positions.
The UTC (really just a second time zone or GMT feature, even the dial says GMT) is complicated. For example, I use MUC for Munich, 6 hours ahead on my Eastern time and at 5 am for me, I set the GMT hand to 11. Obviously, at 6 am the GMT hand reads 12, but at 7 am the GMT hand reads -11. Take 24 - 11, you get 13, as in 13:00 hrs. It would have been just as easy to have the GMT ring read 0 through 23 or 1 through 24."

Yup. Clear as a bell.

Yeah....slightly confusing, but enough to get me thinking along the right lines (I think....)
