ScubaPro 500

Following the post of the Nautilus, this is the watch I was realy looking for: the ScubaPro 500. Somewhat of a legend in the dive-WIS community, as they are pretty rare and hardly come up for sale.

500m water resist, lovely screw down crown and nicely sculpted crown guards. Never had it opened, but I assume it was the workhorse ETA2824 motor doing it’s work under the hood, keeping good time. I swapped the bracelet to a Milanese mesh, which suited it perfect!

But what’s even better about the watch then anything mentioned before is it’s bezel: the bezel action is just plain perfect and on par with the best (my Squale 😉 ), smooth but firm clicks, a pleasure to use!

The watch had seen better days but I’m sure it had interesting stories to tell…
