Pretty on the Inside: 10 Great-Looking Watches With Internal Bezels

The external bezel, featured on all sorts of watches, from Seikos to Rolexes and everything in between, is a proud assertion that the thing you're wearing on your wrist does more than just tell simple time — it's a tool that can be used to aid divers, pilots, doctors, and so on. But there's a subset of watches that make that assertion a bit more subtly, by placing the bezel on the inside of the watch, integrated as part of the dial itself and operated with a separate crown on the case. Functionality aside, an internal bezel also provides some nice visual touches, adding a sense of depth and texture to the dial. Here are 10 we'd be happy to have in our collection.
