Mcdevito75 here, I"m pretty sure the mechanism is called a Ratchet mechanism, most likely for all watches with rotateing Bezels.

Watch glossary: E


EBAUCHE
Incomplete (jeweled or non-jeweled) watch movement without regulating organs, mainspring, dial and hands.
ECO-DRIVE
A name for a patented power mechanism found on some Citizen watches. This mechanism uses ordinary light to keep a rechargeable battery powered for watch operation. This technology is very sophisticated allowing some watch models to remain powered for up to 5 years in the dark. Watches with Eco-Drive technology will never need to have the battery replaced.
ELAPSED TIME ROTATING BEZEL
A graduated rotating bezel used to keep track of elapsed time. The bezel can be turned so the wearer can align the zero on the bezel with the watch's seconds or minutes hand. After a period of time passes, you can read the elapsed time off the bezel. This saves you having to perform the subtraction that would be necessary if you used the watch's regular dial.
ELECTROPLATING PROCESS
Process of covering metal articles with a film of other metals. The article is immersed in a chemical solution; electric current (D.C.) flows through the solution from a piece of metal (anode) to the article (cathode), depositing metal thereon by electrolysis.
ENDSTONE
Undrilled jewel, placed on the balance jewel with the tip of the balance-staff pivot resting against its flat surface, to reduce pivot friction. Sometimes used also for pallet staffs and escape wheels.
ENGINE-TURNED, see guilloché.
EQUATION OF TIME
Indication of the difference, expressed in minutes, between conventional mean time and real solar time. This difference varies from -16 to +16 seconds between one day and the other.
EQUINOX
The time when day and night are of equal length, when the sun is on the plane of the equator. Such times occur twice in a year: the vernal equinox on March 21st-22nd and the autumnal equinox on September 22nd-23rd.
ESCAPEMENT
Positioned between the train and the balance wheel and governing the rotation speed of the wheel - train wheels. In today's horology the most widespread escapement type is the lever escapement. In the past, numerous types of escapements were realized, such as: verge, cylinder, pin-pallet, detent and duplex escapements. Recently, George Daniels developed a so-called "coaxial" escapement.
ESCAPE WHEEL
A wheel belonging to the mechanism called escapement

Hi, I just purchased an Invicta 4718 watch, and although I have the date set correctly, the DAY is wrong. Does anyone know how to change the day?


Pull crown out 1/2 way to fist click. Rotate one direction for date and the other direction for day. Should be clockwise (right) for day and counterclockwise (left) for date.

How do i set the day of the week on my Invicta subaqua noma 6125?


For Invicta chronographs to set the day you need to pull the crown out to position 3 (2nd click after releasing the crown/ furthest crown position/ same position to adjust time). You can only set the day by rotating the crown clockwise. Every 24 hours of clockwise rotation will move the day indicator forward 1 position (Mon>Tue, Tue>Wed, etc). If your watch is set one day ahead of the correct day (Its Tuesday but the watch displays Wednesday for example) you will need to rotate the crown clockwise through the entire remainder of the week in order to get to the correct day, you CANNOT rotate the crown counter-clockwise in order to move the indicator back a day.

What is the purpose of the rotating bezel on the Callaway CY2058? It has no markings, which it needs to be useful.


If you have no markings on bezel there is no practical use for this feature.
Bezels with markings are used as a tachymeter (for calculating speed of the moving object) or as a countdown timer for sporting events or diving.
In your case bezel is becoming loose and thats why it is turning as I can't see the point why the watch should be fitted with rotating bezel with no markings on it.

Rate me, please.

Rotating outer ring


It is primarily cosmetic - the bezel was originally designed for diving, military activities or similar where counting down time was critical. Before digital stopwatches etc were built into watches as a feature, what you did as a diver was turn the bezel to the time (say 30 minutes) of air you had left, then the minute hand would travel around the face to the position 0 on the bezel, telling you 30 minutes had passed. You often find compass directions, various job specific calculators etc on bezels also, but unless you need a stopwatch / time reminder and don't have that feature in the watch itself, then it is purely a tradition to include a rotating bezel. The original bezels would have the time markings going the opposite way to the watch face usually, however on many modern watches, they often go the same way, allowing you to see how much time has passed, rather than how much you have left. Hope this clears things up :)
