    Please see my other items for sale. I’m liquidating one of the largest, rarest and highest end Victorinox / Swiss Army collection anywhere! It took me many years to collect all these watches, but it’s time to move them onto new homes as I have enjoyed them for some time now. 100% ebay feedback for 12+ years, including great references on watchuseek and TRF. !!! - CONUS SHIPPING ONLY - !!!


    The good old Victorinox Swiss Army Dive Master 500 (ref. V241660) model has been on the market for some years now. Designed with lovers of “military diving” in mind, it is quite popular among customers around the world if the Swiss luxury brand, which is mostly known for its multipurpose knives, has finally decided to offer a expensive limited edition of the piece. Sporting the usual sturdy-looking body crowned with a visually complex unidirectional rotating bezel, the new version of the Dive Master 500 features a more interesting dial and is, for a change, equipped with a mechanical movement made by ETA.


    As I have already noted, the limited edition model looks a lot more interesting than a “plain” version of the watch. While many previous iterations of the watch looked somewhat mundane even despite their “three-dimensional” dials and complex bezels that were probably supposed to look interesting, this one indeed makes an impression of a finely crafted watch. While the signature elements of the design remain in place, it the balance between them, those little touches of a skilled designer’s hand that make all the difference.


    As you can see on the images, its dial was finally stripped of that speaker-style shape (it is still present on the small seconds indicator, though, probably as a nod to the less expensive version) and now features a more noble-looking vertical stripes pattern and its main elements, those including a 20-minute diving scale, as well as both chronograph totalizers are painted with lime-green luminous compound (Superluminova) that glows even more brightly at night.


    The round dot-shaped hour markers are partly gone and partly downsized to look more proportionate to the three sub-dials and a small dot on the central chronograph seconds hand, too, adding to the timekeeper’s more refined appearance. The traditional broad sword-shaped hands are now partly openworked contributing to the dial’s visual lightness.
    The watch is is equipped with an indestructible ETA 2894-2 caliber equipped with a chronograph module. The body of the watch is still the same 43 millimeters in diameter, but is this time fashioned out of hard Grade 2 titanium alloy that was sandblasted to give the watch that menacing “military” appearance. The pair of sapphire crystals both back and front makes the watch an even more valuable purchase.
