This is my second review post about Divers Watches For Men. In the first part, I reviewed a Seiko and a Neymar, both good looking and pretty good quality, BUT.. They were no good for actually diving, so this time I thought we could look at a couple of watches you can actually dive with. (All pictures are links, and all links go to Amazon.) Enjoy!
Victorinox Swiss Army Men’s I.N.O.X. Pro Diver Watch
This is a Swiss-made diver watch made by Victorinox. This company is most known for making high-quality knives. If I say red iconic Swiss army knife, I bet most of you know exactly what I am talking about, and this company made that iconic knife. Luckily they make their watches with the same quality.
Victorinox put this watch through around 130 tests to prove how resistant it is. The test was everything from, throwing it in a washing machine to, running over it with a 64-ton tank.
You can get it in automatic or quartz, but the automatic is a lot more expensive. They are all stainless steel, except the one I linked, that is made from Titanium. The Titanium watch is obviously more expensive, The titanium is a bit under $800 and the stainless steel you can get from around $400.
They are water-resistant for 200m/660ft. It comes in a few different colors and you can have a few different bands as well. The luminous works well so you can see it underwater. This is a very high quality, and it’s worth the money. I am in awe by this watch. It is great for everyday use and for diving, it can take the beatings of life. And this is a certified diving watch that meets the NIHS 92-11 Swiss watchmaking standards, I.N.O.X. Professional Diver exceeds the required criteria.
The price varies a little between colors.
The case diameter is 47 millimeter and the case thickness is 14 millimeters. you can get this in Titanium or stainless steel. it is a 2018 model.
Casio G-Shock Frogman Digital Dial Resin Quartz Watch
The original G-Shock was field watch, made to be used when going hiking and all the beatings that will bring, so it is very durable.
The Frogman has a Dive mode, it will basically time your dives, and you use that mode like a stopwatch, and it has a surface interval measurement function. Here you also have a dive log so you can go back and see your dives, that includes time and date, you can keep up to 10 logs.
The gray plastic buttons on the side are what you use to start and stop the time, and the buttons are pretty big so you can push them with gloves. And it has a tide graph and moon phase, here you can see what the tide is doing at different times. And it has 31 different time zones so you can what the time is in other time zones without changing the time, where you are. You can sett 4 alarms at the same time. And there is a stopwatch and a timer.
It is solar-powered, and have sapphire cover glass, and it is shock resistant. It is water-resistant to 200m/660ft.
This is a very tough and solid quartz watch, under the plastic, it is made from stainless steel. This is made for diving. It is really great quality. It cost around $500 and is worth it. A great diving tool.
The case diameter is 53 millimeter and the case thickness is 17 millimeters, it is made from stainless steel with a plastic cover.
I hope this was helpful. You will be happy with either of these two watches.
They are both very durable, and well-made from companies with great reputations for making quality.
The G-Shock is superior when it comes to how easy it is to see underwater.
The Victorinox looks better for everyday use I think, but that is more of a personal taste thing
Please leave a comment, I’m happy to answer any questions you may have, if I don’t know the answer, then I will find it.
Have a nice day.
