The unidirectional, cogged matte black and gun-metal bezel has four hour markers called rider tabs. They are used as points of reference to mark a start time or a limit time the wearer wishes to remember. Rider tabs make it easier to rotate the bezel, especially when wearing gloves, by providing better grip and also protecting the glass.
