I've been looking for a watch where i can swim, exercise, work, and do just about anything. Being a student of art and design there are many qualities to this watch, making this a timeless piece. Before i get into the visual qualities, I want to talk about the precise time keeping. Ive set the time in sync with a separate clock which uses satellite navigation. Its been several days and I have yet to see a difference in time. I have owned several swiss wenger military watches and this is my first victorinox and rest assured being a swiss made watch with a history of precise timekeeping and durability this is a very VERY reliable watch. The case and bracelet is made of highest grade stainless steel, yet it is flexible and light. Dont be fooled by the picture its a little smaller than most diving watches. The bracelet style is similar to Rolex diving watches, other tag huer watches, or other classic watches of the same caliber. Although this watch isnt made for diving it has water...
This is a great watch. Check my comment on the other post, if you have that problem. Anyways I got this as a present and have had it for a year.

Good Luck on your watch hunt!
I bought this watch about a 18-months ago and liked the appearance of the watch. However, recently the metal band just started falling apart. One of the pins that hold the interlocking links has worn and failed and will no longer stay in place. The watch simply falls off my wrist unexpectedly. While the warranty does not cover bands (I get that), I assumed this was a question of quality, workmanship or materials and that the company would stand behind the product, especially since this is a stainless steel band. I sent the product in to the Victorinox national repair center for evaluation with a letter explaining the failure. I was shocked to find that they would not stand behind their poorly constructed product AND that they wanted to charge over $200 to fix the SINGLE link failure on a watch that cost about $290 brand new. Additionally, I was told that watch bands were not really expected to last very long. Shockingly poor construction and customer service. I will never buy...
