Swiss Military CX 20,000 Feet Diver Review

Swiss Military CX 20,000 Feet Diver Watch

The Swiss Military CX watch is the BEAST of ALL BEASTS! A world record breaking 20,000 feet (7500m)! The record was held by the Rolex Deep Sea set in 2008. Not only is the CX an automatic, it also a chronograph making the record that much more impressive. It is C.O.S.C certified utilizing a Valjoux 7750, with a 48 power reserve. More interesting are the dimensions, is it even wearable day to day? It is a manageable 46mm, with the pusher and crown it will wear much larger. If that is not large enough, how about the fact it is 28.5mm thick, which includes 10mm thick sapphire crystal! The case is titanium to help with the over all weight and features a helium release valve. Owning this would definitely be a conversation piece. It is a limited edition to 1000 pieces and comes in a collectors box, along with a rubber strap and a changing tool. Here is a side profile to help give a better appreciation for the size. Amazing!

Pros - If you own this your the man!
