Cressi 500m Diver inbound

Post by SeikoJohn on Tue Feb 13 2018, 18:23

After a pm heads up from the bossman (domecurb) I bought myself a Cressi 500m Quartz diver from ebay today as you can see from the photo it comes on a rubber strap  Evil or Very Mad this shall be changed to either a bracelet or a mesh bracelet .



The case is very similar if not identical to my Tauchmeister , the Tauchmeister is a great watch and extremely comfy to wear which is why I wanted to add a quartz one to my collection



More photos to follow once it arrives

Happy days cheers

Another great looking watch to add to your collection John, you must be chuffed.  

It looks quite smart with the rubber strap so will be interested to see it on a mesh.

Had a rummage around my strap/bracelet box and came across something I thought suited the Cressi

Great watches I would love too see one with a mod done to it , but saying that why spoil a great looking divers watch , they seem to produce similer watches ie divex,aqualung,kirby Morgan

I think it looks much better on the stainless buddy enjoy your new incoming

The rubber strap looked good but the bracelet really compliments the watch so a great choice.

Pop out the movement then put the case in the Ultrasonic cleaner and see how it turns out , Might measure the insert see if a replacement can be purchased .

The Kirby Morgan arrived this morning it requires a bit of a clean up which I will do tonight , the crystal could do with being replaced as it has a fair few scratches but over all I am happy with it. Popped it onto a rubber strap until I buy another bracelet or mesh to put it on.

I know Shocked I was going to clean it up tonight but got side tracked so will do it tomorrow and will open it up to see what movement is in it.

I just hope I can get a new crystal as this one has tiny lumps on it feel very similar to superglue .

a new crystal will be easy through Cousins and shouldn't be much more than £1.80..worth changing imo

Do you think it will pop out without having to remove the bezel?? I kind of want to remove the bezel to clean it but not really sure how to remove it and do not want to risk breaking it.

it should come out ok and the bezel should come off the same way as you would a seiko one, but getting it back on is another matter as its held in place by a springy wire and they are hard to fit sometimes so it may be best to strip the watch down apart from the bezel and put it in the ultrasonic complete
