Minute protrusions on the outside of the inner case reduce surface contact with the metal bezel. This reflects the design philosophy for the hollow case structure, which protects the module using point contacts and cushions exterior blows. The bezel undergoes about 20 forging processes, then cutting and polishing. It is minutely crafted from a complex, highly uneven molding to a back surface shape that can affect its precision fit into the inner case. The surface is polished to a beautiful mirror and hairline finish.
