Not sure about what they call the "nautical bezel"? - Here's the bumf on Delma:

"Delma is a family owned Swiss watchmaker which was founded in 1924 by Albert & Alfred Gilomen in Lengnau near Biel, in the heart of the watch industry. The brand is still family owned and is now in the third generation. Famous for professional sports watches, in 2019 Delma celebrated 50 years since the release of its first diver's watch."

Here's Gilomen in 1948.


They started as "Gilomen, frères, montre Thuya" in 1924, became "A. & A. Gilomen A.G. Thuya & Midland Watches" in 1943 and "A. & A. Gilomen A.G. Thuya, Midland & Crestwood Watches" in 1954. Midland and Crestwood were both trademarks of Mount Vernon Watch Co. in the US. Gilomen became Delma Watch in 1968.
