Thread: Divex professional 200M

  1. #1

    Divex professional 200M

    My new arrival, the DIVEX professional 200M, is my first diver and what an excellent little watch it is. SS body, screw down crown, quick set date, anti clockwise rotating bezel, black rubber strap (my first), pleasing size for my slim wrist. All for £80. Oh and decent lume.

    It will probably see no more depth than an immersion in the sink but, as Iíve recently been watching videos of saturation divers and clearance divers, I felt the need to adorn my wrist with this little beastie.

    Nice specs for the price. Dial looks similar to the Seiko SKX 007.

    Is it quartz? What size diameter is it without the crown?

    Looks good on you.

    These are a great watch, a pal of mine has one and Im going to buy one for my once a week swim. Hence quartz is ideal.

    Check out 'Last Breath'. You've probably already seen it mind but I really enjoyed it.

    Hi, it's 30mm not including crown, 40mm lug to lug and a (nice quiet) quartz.

    It’s definitely not that small! Unless, of course it’s the ladies version?

    Although I don’t own one anymore to measure. Even the 500m wears well for its larger size.

    Reminded me of this post.

    Nice one.

    I've always been attracted to Divex watches, as looking good, being great value for money and because they're actually used by divers. I would have one, except I've a Citizen Eco diver that cost £150, with the only advantage over the Divex being solar charging.

    Regardless they are still tempting.

    I doubt it's 30mm. The only 'ladies' one they do is a smaller version of this:



    It's got a lovely Seiko VX quartz movement as well Ė superb value for money.

    Congrats OP, I do like these and they take some beating in their price bracket. Very cool watch for sub £100.

    Next stop, CWC RN Diver

    So far as I can tell, these are identical to the Apeks branded watch. I think mine was <£100 from Simply Scuba a few years ago. Fantastic under-the-radar watches with a Seiko quartz movement. Mine is embarrassingly accurate (not that it matters). The only slight quibble for me is the minty green lume. The previous version had a nicer yellow logo and white lume, but they changed just before I bought mine...

    If you happen to be a recreational diver or simply interested in diving, the Apex version is sometimes free with a year's subscription- https://divernet.com/product/12-issu...-diving-watch/

    That was a good read from hodinkee. Yes it's the ladies version (30mm with the crown at 3 o clock).

    The menís version (which is around 43/44mm in diameter but wears much smaller) is an excellent watch for the money.

    Hereís mine on a Borealis ĎISOfrane-equivalentí rubber strap. The whole rig was just under £100...
