Swiss Army Victorinox Dive Master 500 Mechanical watch is a stylish watch that comes in different versions and colors to suit the taste of many folks. This reasonably priced diving timepiece, which ranges in price depending on the model, is not only nice to look at but very functional as well. The watch features all the qualities that make Swiss Army watches popular among the masses, including stylish design, quality finish, and impressive functionality.
The watch comes in a 43 millimeters wide PVD coated gunmetal stainless steel round case. Most of the case and parts of the gunmetal PVD coated stainless steel bezel have brushed finish. Part of the unidirectional rotating diver’s bezel has polished finish for a more attractive look. The look of the case is further enhanced by the quite substantial screw-down gunmetal-tone steel crown. It has scratch resistant, anti-reflective crystal over the dial and mineral crystal over the see through case-back of the watch. The case is quite rugged and water resistant to 500 meters / 1650 feet.
The dial of the Dive Master 500 mechanical is easily legible, making it also very easy to appreciate the intricate details of the watch. The dial comes in various colors, including blue, orange, red, and black, which often match the color of the strap. The large sword style hands have luminous accents that make them very easy to see. The luminescent Swiss Army logo at the 12 o’clock position as well as the luminescent baton (at the 6 and 9 o’clock position) and dot hour markers everywhere else can be easily seen as well. There is also a smaller ring of Arabic numerals with military time. The immense amount of SuperLuminova used throughout the dial is extremely advantageous for night viewing. There is a date display window at the 3 o’clock position and minute markers all around the outer rim. This diving watch is powered by a mechanical self-winding ETA 2892-2 movement.
The strap on the watch comes in various colors and is comfortable on the wrist. The striated strap has gunmetal PVD coated stainless steel buckle. The strap is a high quality, thick rubber made in Switzerland. As previously stated, the strap color matches that of the dial for a complementary and beautiful finish. Whether it is a bright orange or a subdued black diving watch, the Victorinox Dive Master 500 mechanical has what you are looking for.
