    Smile CX Swiss Military 12,000 ft

    I just purchased a CX 12,000 ft dive watch and am awaiting it's arrival. This is my first nice watch purchase. Can anyone that has experience or expertise give me some insight on what I've got here? I'm excited!

    Charmex makes some interesting pieces, including the 20,000 ft deal that basically looks like a metal golf ball on a bracelet.

    You might have a hard time around here calling them 'high-end', but they are certainly quite nice. Yours contains a v7750, very respectable. Should wear very nicely for a long time.

    More interesting to me is the Military Hurricane, although I think they dropped the ball on properly accenting all of the colour options.

    Pics or it didnt happen.

    Swiss Military, part of Charmex, isn't rated to be high-end. This 12.000ft watch is avaialble since 2005. The movement is a COSC certified Valjoux 7750.

    To some it could be, Mike!

    Anyhow, it's a nice watch. Post some photos when it gets to you!

    I know, depends on your definition of high-end. However I am sure there is a general conception the CX is not.

    I suppose I shouldn't have used high end. I am not a watch expert but I wanted a few opinions. I will post pics when it arrives.

    Where does the Swiss Military dive to 12,000 or 20,000 feet?

    It's a good point, and one I'd like to find the answer too!

    Well let me ask a different question since I may be asking the wrong type of question. How is the quality of CX Swiss military watches? I have been doing some home work and all but just for the sake of watch talk.
