Victorinox Dive Master 500 Mecha
November 2, 2009
Victorinox recently introduced a new mechanical collection in the sub-$1000 price segment. The Victorinox Dive Master 500 Mecha, powered by a reliable base ETA 2892-A2 self-winding mechanical movement. There are now more "quality" offerings in this category than ever before, and this trend does not appear to be changing anytime soon.
The new Dive Master Mecha features a 43 mm stainless steel case, coated in PVD. A sapphire crystal protects the dial and a see-through caseback protects the rear. The hands and markers are luminous. Functions are hours, minutes, seconds and date. The crown is screw-down. Water-resistance is 500 meters (1650 ft). The retail is $995.
