Watch is solid and chunky and looks great on the wrist.

It is easy to set up (in terms of the chronograph, date etc) and is very readable with a good clear dial and bevel.

Feels very good quality - as you would expect for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Watch 15 May 2011
By A. G. Jenks - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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.

This is as close as you are going to get to water "PROOF" @ 730.54 lbs/ sq. inch (500M) or 49.69 Atmospheres.

Although, I'd have to see it to really believe it...:) And I'm NOT taking it down that far to find out!

EDIT: I should mention that although listed as a BLACK face in both the picture and the description, it's really GUN METAL GREY which matches the case and bezel and looks great.
A unique watch, I'm very happy with it.

Three days now and it's still dead on my Atomic clock w/ chronograph running.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice watch 2 April 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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. My biggest complaint with the watch was the lifespan of the leather band but that is easily remedied. Unfortunately, ever since I had the battery changed by a local jewelry shop, it's no longer waterproof (my mistake for not sending it in). Anyway, I was in the market for a new, water-resistant watch would I could wear everyday and intended to stick with Victorinox based on my previous experience.

While looking through the collection of Victorinox watches, I discovered this one. I really liked the look of the metal on this watch. This remains true after I received it. The gunmetal appearance is a little different than you average watch. The chronograph and date displays are attractive. The look is really nice.

I also appreciated the fact that it was a 'dive' watch and capable of being submerged to 500m. Whether or not this watch really can be used for diving is questionable. I'm not sure how easy it would be to read the chronograph or other illuminated markings when under water and it doesn't include a light, so I'm skeptical. I'm planning on attempting my first dive in a few weeks so we'll see how well it works for this purpose.

The 3rd selling point was the rubber band -- I was hoping that this would prove superior to the leather band on my previous one. I can't stand the feel of metal bands and I intend to wear the watch when I'm swimming, playing sports, etc so a rubber sport band makes sense. After receiving the watch, this particular element exceed my expectations. This band is incredibly comfortable and feels very sturdy -- it just doesn't seem like it will standup for a long time. I won't go back to another type of band.

The final selling point was the anti-reflective sapphire crystal. Again, my watches take a beating and once you own a watch with the sapphire crytsal, you are unlikely to go back. It's nice to not have to worry about scratching the crystal without some extreme event.

The one thing originally holding me back was the case size. The case is a little thicker than I like. I'm used to a 9.5mm case so the jump up to 14.5mm case was big. I usually hate 'thick', heavy watches -- I guess that only applies to cheap ones because this one is very well balanced and it doesn't feel bad on my wrist. In fact, it's so comfortable, I forget I have it on -- this, to me, is a key feature of a watch.

I only have a couple of knocks on the watch (which result in the loss of one star).

First, I'm not a big fan of the standard second hand display. It's located in the middle, bottom right above the date. It's relatively small and with the hands of chronograph in the 12 o'clock position, the bottom of those hands makes it difficult/confusing to get a good view of the second hand. There also aren't really markings in the second hand display beyond the 0/15/30/45 positions. Granted, you have the large chronograph hands for actually keeping track of seconds but sometimes you just need to quickly keep track of seconds and this setup does not lend itself to that.

Second, the manual on the watch isn't great. It goes into basic function but isn't entirely clear. When I received this watch initially, it wasn't functioning. I thought I might need to do something to 'kick-start' it for the first time but I couldn't find anything. I've never owned a cronograph watch or one with a screw out crown so the concept of two 'stop' positions on the crown was new to me. After playing with it for quite some time, I finally got the hang of it but it was no thanks to the included instructions (and I wasn't able to find much additional help on-line). This seems to be a common theme with companies these days -- they often skimp on the accompanying documentation despite the fact that it's an ideal time to solidify that relationship with your consumer and generate some brand loyalty -- this is the type of purchase that someone might get excited about. Use it to your advantage! But I digress...

To cut to the chase, the watch wasn't functioning correctly (dead battery?). As usual, Amazon customer service took care of me and got a replacement to me immediately. That is why, when I purchase bigger ticket items (over $200) off this site, I'm willing to pay a few bucks more for the one actually being sold by Amazon (as opposed to a 3rd party). It's just less risky and they've always stood behind what they sell. Luckily, they are usually the least expensive option as well!

Those are the main knocks. Generally very small stuff. Overall, I really like the watch and anticipate wearing it for quite a few years. This watch is worth the price. Go ahead and make the purchase, you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars victorinox dive master 241421 14 Nov. 2013
By navjing - Published on Amazon.com

just got my 4th victorinox watch and I must say that this is the best of the bunch. my last one also a dm 500 (non-chrono), unfortunately stopped working after almost 2 months because of a defective crown (became loose and does not screw down all the way). I decided to go for this model because of it's fit and finish. so far the time is excellent as I synced it with my computer. I just hope that I won't encounter the same problem with my last one (keeping my fingers crossed).
thank you also to perfect timing as they delivered the product in a beautiful box with all the right manuals with it. their name says it all as their timing is really perfect in their promise delivery date.
more power to amazon and perfect timing.
i'll update my review if something new comes up. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Watch, Great Price 11 Sept. 2012
By Satisfied - Published on Amazon.com

This was my first "expensive" watch purchase. I saw it on Victorinox's website for about $1,000 and then came across it here at Amazon (for about 1/2 of the price). I wanted a watch that I could wear both with black work clothes, and still wouldn't look out of place with weekend attire. I wanted something durable, and this watch sure is that. Based on the feel and weight, you can tell that it is quality made. I'm not a big guy, and the watch doesn't feel overpowering or heavy. Keeps great time, and looks awesome. To echo what others have said, it is difficult to set up at first based on the lackluster instruction manual. However, after 30 minutes of fooling around with it, I was able to figure it out. Also, I don't really have a need for the chronographs (as I don't intend to use this watch for diving). Therefore, the other dials remain unused for the most part (something that bothered me at first). However, I think that the chronographs give the watch a great look regardless of whether or not they come in handy. For the price and the look, this watch is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars An almost-perfect engineering marvel! 6 Aug. 2012
By Michael Tan - Published on Amazon.com

My first real Swiss-Made watch. I'm glad I chose a Victorinox Swiss Army watch. Like its namesake, it's a sturdy and tough tool-watch.
I'm quite particular about tiny details, and I can tell you that this watch is engineered for perfection (or close to it). You can see a great deal of attention was paid to every detail; from the watch case to the alignment of the dials to the confident click/alignment of the bezel.
Although I have quite a small wrist, the watch doesn't look too big on me. In fact, its size & heft gives you a feeling that the watch is indestructible.
All in all, a great watch, a great tool. A job well done, Victorinox.
