White bezel ScubaPro 500 Automatic

Finally, I’m back with a dive watch: the ScubaPro 500 with white bezel.

Still a great watch – I had the black bezel version before, reviewed here.

I got this white bezel version from a guy local to me who got it in the late ’70s and actually did use it for diving. It seems the white bezel versions are more rare than the black ones, and what makes this one even more rare, is that it is fitted with an original ScubaPro bracelet with the ‘S’ logo on the clasp and nice fitting end links.

I also noticed that, same as the one I had previously, there are no lines at the 5min markers on the dial.

Doing some research I came to the conclusion at least two dial variations exist:

1. Applied logo with lines at the 5min marker (painted marker)

2. Painted logo without lines at the 5min marker (painted marker)
