    Blue Bezels!

    Iííve become a bit blue obsessed recently. Here are my two dive watches with gorgeous blue bezels.

    I had the stainless steel Omega 300m a few years ago, but this titanium version is, in my opinion, well worth the extra few bob. Itís obviously lighter than the steel version, and the blue adds extra funk

    As Iíve said countless times before, the 42mm Panerai submersible 1950 case is maybe my favourite ever, and the gray, textured dial is amazing.

    Bring on the holidays so I can go for a splash in the sea!

    Seems very topical with the Tudor bb58 blue bezel being released

    Hmm, Omega, Panerai, Blancpain and...

    Hamilton.


    I do like that Panerai, and the Blancpain.

    Love me a blue bezel - and that Panerai in the OP is a real eye catcher!

    My favourite is my Certina DS Action -



    Straton Legera is a beautiful thing, too -



    Scurfa knock it out of the park, as well -

    Blue is without doubt my favourite colour, watches especially. So much so Im having my first ever blue watch serviced to spruce it up, a 2005 Omega Seamaster. The only blue watch that didn’t quite bond with me was the 5711 I had, which I get is strange as it’s probably the most sort after watch on the planet. Just didn’t do it for me.

    My favourite watch, so much versatility with the 3 strap options:





    I love blue so much so I’ve one of these boys arriving soon :-)

    As a blue watch with gold, this has to be up there - quite stunning!

    Finally the blue watch to beat all blue watches would be a blue dial, 42mm steel Daytona. Wishful thinking eh!

    I have a thing for blue bezel diver-style watches that started with a Timex diver that I had as a kid in the early '70s. Just spent 10 minutes googling images to see if I could find one, and I'm pretty sure it was one of these:




    I well remember using the plastic bezel to display remaining time in exams and tests at school. I wore it all the time, not sure I actually took it off in bed and I believe that watch and its tight bracelet are the reason my left wrist is slimmer than the right one. It happily survived going in a swimming pool, and the Mediterranean on holidays to Spain, many times.

    I was almost about to say that blue bezels really don't do it for me, then I remembered my blue Tuna and the ChR wARD and various Turtles I had. Actually, I still sort of stand by that, the Tuna is dark enough that it isn't BLUE and there's a reason I sold the others.

    Always been a blue man though my collection has oriented to black. Currently my little seamaster is my only all blue bezel.
    I think Omega nailed the colour on that. I have an incoming Seiko tuna with 2 tone blue bezel that I'm looking forward to.

    Good call and great choice if I didn't have an original Pelagos I'd definitely go for one of those, that blue certainly stands out from the rest

    I'm very partial to blue dials, but I think the only watch I have with a blue bezel is my Longines Hydroconquest



    I do have a Yobokies blue 'Fifty Fathoms' mod bezel to fit (with other parts) to a SNZH Seiko at some point, but it's been sitting unfitted for a couple of years now!

    PS ETA - Looks lovely, I think
    Breitling Cosmonaute 809 - What's not to like?
