Victorinox Swiss Army Dive Master 500 Watch

Victorinox Swiss Army Dive Master 500 Watch
To mark the 25th anniversary of its watchmaking activities, Victorinox Swiss Army presents a limited, numbered series of its famous diver’s watch. For the very first time in brand history, this exclusive titanium model issued in a 500-piece limited edition houses a mechanical automatic chronograph movement. Built to resist and endure, this authentic diver’s instrument is water-resistant to 500 metres. To ensure impeccable visibility under water, it features generous luminescent indications not only on the hands and hour-markers, but also on the chronograph counter rings and in the 20-minute dial zone. The latter is echoed on the bezel bearing original marking, with a
luminescent coating that seems no different from the others but actually turns blue in the dark.
