Rejig of Saucer Style Titanium Dive Watch 2000m (maybe)

https://www.watchuseek.com/threads/d...ction.5519881/

Saw this forum thread on a new Saucer style dive watch in titanium. Made in China of course where it is rare for them to do anything but copy known and successful models, but here they took a chance on doing something new. Clearly they didn't ask any divers and so it was a flop commercially before anyone really knew anything about it. How China works is factories knock out watches from myriad plants making various components and individuals styling themselves as “brands” place orders to cobble together watches that they will think are going to sell. A lot depends on someone in China willing to sell the watch using their market presence in the West, then they have their logo slapped on it. But now thoughts are being turned to addressing the bezel grip problem and this could then be a very interesting and cool watch. These watch forums are heavily skewed by dweebs wearing oversize or trophy (in their minds) watches and hoping other people will think they are expert. Most don't even know what they are talking about and it becomes an echo chamber ruled by the lowest common denominator, but this watch may be worth a look.

Photo of the original design which unfortunately is smooth as a baby’s bum, but will hopefully be changed in a new edition. Needs feedback, but from real divers!

Possible changes without wiping out the saucer vibe, indents only need an edge in the push direction, which is anticlockwise. Refer second image set
