Default Victorinox Dive Master 500

My workhorse watch is a Victorinox Dive Master 500, I purchased from Brice years ago. If I am headed out, and planning to swim, or be in a wet environment, I always come back to this watch. I just bought a red dial to go with it. It may be the only red dial watch I like. I just thought Iíd give it a tip of the hat. Too bad itís discontinued at this point. Amazing watch, great value.

There are so many outstanding watches from VSA that it's hard to keep
count TT. Wow, and the Dive master 500 really is the perfect example
really, and definitely is one to tip the cap too !

I mean where else are you going to see a bezel like the Dive Master
has?! Or such a mean, yet classy cool gunmetal finish?! ..Plus these
super deep blue, and also red dials like you have on the way simply
astonish as well. You are so fortunate to have just one of these in a
collection. Let alone two !!

One of the most rugged,under rated dive style watches ever. Every bit as tough as the Inox.

Itís definitely true about VSA. They really do a great job with their designs. I wonít derail the thread but my favorite quartz is a blue/charcoal VSA classic chrono. The chronograph function broke, but I refuse to retire it!

I will post up the red when it arrives!

That red is just spectacular TT, and really teams with the gunmetal
finish in the nicest way. Or actually the meanest way !

Guess it's kind of a deep, almost crimson red, and really sets the
watch even further apart from the competition. ..Even the strap
looks fantastic, and extends the stealthy feel right over onto the
wrist. ..Plus it just looks like it must be super comfortable !

A giant congrats there !!! ..Enjoy this, or these rather !!

I've enjoyed reading so much reading about the Civil War battle,
the Battle of Fredricksberg, Virginia
Wave after wave of Union troops sacrificed in useless charges of
the heights. Give R E Lee 24 hours to prepare? Pure murder!!!

The DiveMaster is an awesome watch. Victorinox does made some nice models.



Here is the blue dialed one I had some time ago...

That is cool. I wish they had a steel version...


But at the moment I have an INOX diver which is also superb.
