Just in.....Victorinox INOX titanium diver

Post by hoppyjr » Fri Aug 31, 2018 9:23 pm

This was waiting when I got home.

I hadn’t seen one in the wild yet, but it’s a titanium version of the Victorinox INOX Diver. I picked up the stainless version from Erik and loved the watch, but the weight was too much (it now lives on my nephews wrist). When I learned of the titanium version I knew this could be the answer.

These INOX watches are supposed to be extremely durable, so I think it’s perfect for beater duty. I’m also a sucker for a white dial, but I need contrast with the hands. The white on this one is a snow white, with just a hint of texture (similar to Bremont Solo white).

* It wears about the same as the EZM9, but this one is a couple mm taller at 14.5

* 45mm case, about 53mm end to end, 22mm lug width.

* Much lighter than the stainless version (as expected).

* 200 meters water resistance.

* Sapphire crystal, screw crown & case back.

* Hands, hour marker surrounds, and dial printing are all titanium gray color, so it has decent contrast against the pearl white dial.

* seconds hand hits the ticks almost perfectly, as did my stainless version. Ronda movement.

* lume is good, not great. Everything glows green, except the minute hand which glows blue (like recent Omegas). The photo is after 10 seconds under a floor lamp. I’d say it’s par with a Sinn that uses C1.

$695 MSRP but currently on sale at Joma for $399. Add the current $10 coupon and it’s an easy decision if you like the look and can handle the size.

I like this.

I tried the steel version at the mall once and disliked the bracelet.

Does this model have any print on the crystal?

Nothing on the crystal, it's a solid value IMO. They also make a grey dial, a funky blue dial, and a black dial - all in titanium but neither the deal this one is right now. I may add the black one eventually.

I really like that. I'm also a sucker for white dials, and the dark titanium looks awesome.

Want

I had a couple of their steel non-diver versions and although they were cool, the lume was subpar and they were scratch magnets. The Ti diver version looks a lot better.

Congrats!

Despite the size it looks good on you. How is the bezel action? Easy to turn?

I SO wish they did away with that cockeyed date placement. Love it otherwise.

I'm a sucker for white dials also, but haven't found the "one" yet. I like this one, but I think it would be too big for my wrist.

That looks phenomenal Hoppy ! :excited: Big congratulations !!!

You know when you see the pictures of these on different watch sites, or blogs they
look cool enough. But your' pictures show just how nice of a watch these really are ! :salute:

Love the look of the titanium, and then white dial with those orange accents playing
off all of those natos. Outstanding Hoppy !!! Hope you enjoy !

Thanks fellas. Those were indoor shots and it’s better in daylight. I’m qualifying this morning and will post a good photo later.

Here are a couple daylight shots.

The colored marks around the dial are three different colors; the first 20 minutes are lighter yellow-orange, next 20 minuets are dark orange, last 20 are Swiss Army red to match the seconds hand.

Nice, I had the regular version and although nice it was a bit bland. This one looks better for sure.

Thanks again guys.

I like that grey strap the best so far, but I left for the weekend and forgot it on the dresser.
