This timepiece is a tribute to the early times of professional diving watches with many historical references: the egg-shaped 10 ATM water-resistant case, the typically curved crystal, printed Super-LumiNova indices and a bezel inlay made of aluminum. The Vintage Diver Quartz is a stylish everyday watch for all retro style lovers and, with its diameter of 39 mm, perfect for every wrist.
The Swiss quality movement Ronda 505/24h also allows the display of a second-time zone which is highlighted by a red hand.
I’ve always liked quartz watches for their pinpoint accuracy and longevity when measured against their mechanical equivalents, and this watch is no different. I’ve had my Davosa Vintage diver for 5 months now and everything looks swell. The watch certainly looks better in real life than in these photos: solid, durable construction, eye-catching aluminum Pepsi bezel, nice curved crystal.
The GMT is pretty great too, and though I’ve never really needed to tell a second-time zone, I feel safe knowing the feature is available for a rainy day. One day when I need to, I’ll be able to tell the time in Nairobi at a glance :)
The dial was a big attraction. The geometric, tan-ish indices really pop out the vintage style. Both they and the hands have pretty good lume too. I wear mine with a distressed brown leather strap and it matches quite nicely.
This watch looks great. Right out of the box it started loosing time. Everytime the second (sweep) hand would pass the minute hand at the 7 o'clock it would strike it and stop. I had to tap the watch face to get it unstuck......Unacceptable. I promptly returned the watch to Amazon.
