Great news group! The vendor has let us know that the group's order was picked up and is on its way to our warehouse in New Jersey now.

Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 1/6 or sooner if something comes up.
OK. So here is an answer to my question (and everyone elses) about what the bezel numbers represent. http://gearpatrol.com/2014/02/04/timekeeping-101-read-bezel/ But there is no 24 hour hand on this watch so I guess the question still stands...... how do you use it? It appears you cannot use it, and is merely just asthetic. Someone please correct me if I am wrong! I actually hope I am! Perhaps you can use the ordinary Hour Hand to work it? It represents GMT time acording to the page above NOT 24 hour time as per the decription listed. If that is the case then Massdrop needs to correct it's description.

This is correct. The bezel is non-rotating (as stated in the specs) and there's no GMT hand. So if there's no GMT complication, it means that it's just for aesthetics. It is kind of lame that manufacturers do this, but on a $25 Timex, this is not unusual because they are just trying to achieve the aesthetic of more expensive watches. A Rolex Explorer II for example:

Let me know what about the description was confusing and I'll change it. While we didn't say anything incorrect about GMT functionality, I can understand how the aesthetics might be misleading.

Yep, thats why I am still buying it, just need a nice cheap watch for work! As for the description, it states: "the watch features a circular case and a stationary coin-edge bezel that provides a 24-hour time display." It does not provide a 24 hour time display!
Hmmmm... you guys seem to be right! These bezel numbers make no sense! How about someone at Massdrop giving us an answer on what is going on with them! I may be regretting this buy after seeing this! Mind you, I just wanted a cheap beater for work anyway.
Looking forward to an old fashioned analog wind-up.

The specs show on the manufacturers website that this is a battery powered watch. If it were windup it would be 5 times the price.

Ha ha, yes I know it would be much more expensive. I own a Laco Submariner.
sooooo how exactly does the 24h thing work? seeing that none of the 24h times line up with the correct 12h times and there's not an extra hand....
This watch is idiotically designed. A 24 hour bezel is useless on a watch where the hands rotate -twice- a day around the bezel and there are no other hands that rotate only once to match it.
Will this order arrive by Christmas?
Jeremyw
no, not by New Years
So it looks like a dive watch but is only 50M WR , and the bezel doesn't rotate ? Stick with the Casio MDV 106. I got mine on special for >$30.
Hey it isn't a dive watch. They don't claim it to be a dive watch. It is an inexpensive everyday beat the crap out of watch. A 50 meter watch you can get wet washing your hands and maybe swimming with but it isn't a dive watch.

True. But just for the money, the Casio seemed a better option. Valid point though.
The 24 hour bezel is useless without a GMT hand....or am I missing something?

24hr clocks don't have an extra hand? : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/24-hour_clock

But bear in mind that this watch has 12-hour markers on the face... So either the bezel is off or the face is off, unless I'm missing something huge (like the new Alpinas with 36 "hour" bezel, which actually tells the North and compass directions). Or since it is quartz, can you switch between 12-hour and 24-hour mode?
50 meter water resistance? Better off with a Casio MDV 106-1A diver. Screw down crown and a depth rating of 200m. On Amazon now for about $40.

Hey dude you're right! way better specs on the Casio MDV ... Thx !

MDV 106 is the way to go for a diver under $50 no question.
