  2. Really nice watch, classic diver look with a robust movement. What more do you need for a watch to survive the harsh rigours of everyday living?

    I like it a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I am really liking the proportions of the hour markers to the hands on this one. It is also nice that the bezel has full minute markers. I miss that on a few of my current watches. Thanks for the great giveaway (again)!

    ReplyDelete
  4. very clean design which combines lots of vintage elements and inspiration. (plongeur, cushion-style case, dial minute markers)

    ReplyDelete
  5. That's what a dive watch is supposed to look like. Love the plongeur minute hand , the hour hand is very tool like to. I hve always prefered indices to numerals for the hour markers. All in all a real winner

  7. The look & feel known from the 300m also functions quiet well on the 500m.
    I like the hands and the shape of the case.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I love the clean design of this Artego Diver Watch. I don't think I am able to dive under 500 meters so I think it will fit excellent on my hand.:)

    ReplyDelete
  22. The Artego 500m is an exquisite dive watch; rugged and capable, yet with a taste of luxury.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Artego's watches are gorgeous pieces of work; the inky gloss of the black dial really stands out and makes the watch pop. Very solid construction and workmanship. I've owned other Artegos and love them unreservedly.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Beautiful watch! Love the proportions and design subtleties of this Artego.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm loving the plongeur hands and face. A very nice case shape too. What can i say, if I had it I wouldn't go anywhere near 500m but it's nice to know that if I did, they'd still be able to tell the time as they fish out my crushed body from the depths!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Fantastic giveaway thanks to both Artego and Oceanic. The new 500m looks very nice and is slightly different than the precious 300m. Would be fortunate to win. Thanks again

    ReplyDelete
  38. Great looking watch. Great blog. I check in every day.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Excellent watch. I tried to purchase Artego 300m long time ago but it was out of stock.

    ReplyDelete
  40. A classic diver case with a easy to read dial. A watch for any adventure from desktop to ocean bottom.

    ReplyDelete
  41. This watch offers several looks. Since it's face is clean and uncluttered, it would look just as good at a board meeting as it would several hundred meters under water. I also like that the size is kept manageable... perhaps its me, but the 50mm and larger watches are getting a bit old.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Fabulous watch, and clean and simple

    ReplyDelete
  43. That would look really great in a kayak out on the rivers or bay....
    Very solid and functional piece!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  47. Love the orange sword hand very slick

    ReplyDelete
  48. Very nice, easy to read tool diver. Hands make it easy to read!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Simplicity of design integrated with a tried and tested workhorse automatic movement; namely the Miyota 8215! An unostentatious timepiece, with non-fuss applications and an original, superfluously executed created timepiece.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Looks like a nice classic diver style. I would be happy to have it in my collection.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Great giveaway! I love this piece. Clean and simple design. The perfect size. I look forward to having an Artego in my collection one day!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  54. Really like that watch, would look great on my wrist :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Awesome diver - love the hour markers n' the hands!

    ReplyDelete
  56. The Artego 500M seems to be every bit as elegant and worthy of tool usage as the 300M, but with 200m to spare! Clean lines and great contrast on the dial makes this watch a must have for real watch fans!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Looks every in the tool watch!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Love the classic, clean Diver style of this Artego.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Stunning watch. I particularly like the hour markers on the dial - very reminescent of those of the Seamaster Pro 300m, as well as the oversized minute hand.
    Looks indistructible.
    In the end, a great tool watch that will surely perform admirably.
    Keep up the good work Artego and a special thanks to Oceanic Time for its wonderful giveaways!

    ReplyDelete

  100. I had 300M and I regret I sold it.
    At the other hand I think 500M looks even better and I wish to have one at my wirst.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I love dive watches and when I think of a dive watch, this is the watch I see! Classic lines, the bright orange minute hand to help save me from being down too long, and an overall look that tells people "Hey, he dives!" I've wanted an Artego 500m for some time and hopefully, I will be wearing this one soon!
    Wish me luck!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  102. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Love the classic looking watch case, its built and the hands!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I love dive watches and this watch just screams classic.

    ReplyDelete
  104. While it is still the same case design as 300m I think the 500m is now more toolish. 500m bracelet has bigger screws and now in all links, awesome.
    The case: the 500m is 2mm shorther than the 300m, case 45mm - bezel is 44mm – perfect combination, crown at 3 looks much better – Beautiful
    Bezel - Numbers are now thinner and sharper and on the black bezel lume filled, another +
    The dial: 500m has no dial ring and no minute marks, imo the dial makes the now smaller watch appear bigger, clean, easy to read and excellent lume.
    One of my favorite diver watches, amazing diving tool.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Great watch ! Very beautiful and classical. I like the diver hand.
    Great job, I want one !

  109. Awesome the watch looks verry clean and the dial is verry easy to read,love the bezel in brushed stainless steel,looks tough.The watch is not so big im sure its verry comfortable to dive with...From my point of view the watch looks verry solid.

    ReplyDelete
  110. This is a really beautiful timepiece. Great amount of luminecent material used at the hour markers will provide great visibility at night. The fact it comes with the black rubber strap and the stainless steel bracelet it awesome. I'm really interested in the anti reflective material on the inside of the watch. This watch is a beautiful piece of art. I would be honored to own it and show it off often.

    ReplyDelete
  111. The best vintage diver in perfect sice, robust for what ever you do - not only diving!

    ReplyDelete
  112. From an idea to stunning workmanship and flawless engineering. A dive watch that one could be proud of. Being a disabled Navy vet that still enjoys diving and will not just rely on a dive computer alone, this time piece would be a very nice birthday gift (9-15-55). Thank you for the give away.
