I've had three of these beautiful divers over the years.... Victorinox's finest work IMO. I'm actually liquidating my entire collection due to some "reflection" lately, so if you're looking for some interesting and rare divers, please check my other posts. I love this watch. It is the perfect
size, has a fantastic bracelet, has a super smooth big date ETA 2896
automatic, and has LUME for days. Only 900 were made, and they don't
come up for sale very often (and very rarely in condition this good). Comes
with with the limited VSA box, removed links, warranty card (blank), correct VSA manual, and a VSA rubber dive strap for the DM500. Condition is 93%....excellent. There are no gouges or deep scratches, just a few light marks and small wear points in the PVD. Definitely one you would be proud to wear with no issues. Winds smoothly, crown operates as it should with winding, setting time/date, and hacking. Keeps good time. Lume remains nuclear:).
If you've looked at these LE Dive Masters but never handled one, take
the plunge. I guarantee you will be impressed by the quality and design.
