Summary: Well if there is one thing to say, this watch is awesome, could not wait to get it and now I can honestly tell you this is a machine!! Only have one issue, Victorinox needs to write a better manual because its a little, if not completely miss-leading (finding the calibre in order to set it). Other than that this marvel of engineering Rocks!!
Summary: but this is the perfect watch. i'm a watch lover, and and my best pieces are mechanical of course, but for a quartz watch, this is simply awesome. sturdy as hell. luminous bezel with 20 minute timer i find myself using every day. and the chronograph timer has an extra minute hand that sits behind and frames the second hand at the noon position.
Summary: I am very disappointed that the watch sold by Amazon is not new! When I received the watch, the hands have already gone. There are also some scratches on the back of the case, although they are not very serious. Because I am not a USA customer, exchange would be really troublesome for me. So I have to accept it.
Summary: Great watch for diving, which is it's MAIN presentation. It's disigned to tell you your time of dive with both Bezel and chrono indications. Yes, it's fine for every day time and chrono. But Diving is what its all about. This is an ETA calibre 251.262. Which is an upper level quartz movement. It's deadly accurate, and it's hands are spot on their markings. In the $500 range it's a bargin if it's the kind of watch you are looking for.
Summary: I don't typically spend over $200 on my watches. They take too much of a beating to justify buying expensive ones. In this instance, I made an exception. However, I'm not an expert or connoisseur on fine watches. I'm just an average man looking for a nice, sturdy watch. I previously used a Victorinox Swiss Army Infantry watch for day to day wear. It's a very simple, classic watch which is well constructed.
Summary: The dark metal finish looks even better in person. The case is a little larger than I expected but I like it in that the watch feels heavy and solid. Screw down crown and good to 500 metres...awesome...not that it matters to me since it will never see the ocean. Great price for a quality watch to add to your collection. I am very happy with my purchase.
