I was in the market for a new dive watch and stumbled upon the Bombfrog 500m Professionell. The watch has a reliable Seiko movement, 500m water resistance, and comes on a rubber strap. I look for good value when I want to add something to my collection and the Bombfrog 500m is a great value for the money.

When I first opened the box of the Bombfrog 500m I thought the watch look a lot more than the price tag would warrant. The watch comes in a 46mm brushed steel case with a firm unidirectional rotating bezel. The screw down crown keep water out and 500m water resistance is perfect for a diver. The Sapphire glass is a nice addition considering the price you may get a mineral glass with other divers in this price range. The super luminous hour markers and hands provide ample amount of light for night viewing of the time. The watch features a black dial with a red seconds with date at the 3 marker.

The Bombfrog 500m Professionell comes with an extra long rubber strap. I have a 7 inch wrist and the last hole fits my wrist. This is perfect for those guys with larger wrists and those with smaller wrist can easily swap out the strap for an aftermarket strap or bracelet. The Bombfrog 500m is powered by the ever reliable Seiko VX42 Quartz Movement that will make sure you are always on time for your appointments. Bombfrog backs each watch with a 24 month warranty and a certificate of authenticity. The company tests out each watch before it’s sent to buyer for 24 hour quality control check.

Overall I am really impressed with the offering of the Bombfrog 500m Professionell diving watch. It is truly a beautiful timepiece that is built like a tank and reliable with it’s Seiko quartz movement. The features of the watch and military style makes this a must buy for anyone looking for a great accurate diver watch.

I am always on the lookout for an affordable diver that offers a lot for the money. Van Speyk, a brand that I first learn about from Watchuseek in 2012 has a new diver being released to the market.

Before we get started with the new diver watch, let look at a little history of the brand. Van Speyk watches is named after Jan Carel Josephus van Speyk, a Dutch national hero.

In the Golden Age the current Kingdom of the Netherlands occupied a global perch in terms of Trade, Science, Art and Military Power (especially at sea). This period of time formed an important part of the foundation of the wealth, both economically and culturally, that we in present time Netherlands find ourselves in.

Economic decline and turbulent years is what The Netherlands in the 18th century had to endure. Amidst this social rumble Jan Carel Josephus van Speyk was born in Amsterdam on the 31st of January, 1802. Although educated as a tailor, Van Speyk was fascinated by the adventures that go with the life of a sailor. He followed his heart and in the years that followed, he became a marine lieutenant and conducted many naval trading- and combat missions across the globe and even acquired the “ridderkruis der vierde klasse van de Militaire Willems-Orde”; the Dutch equivalent of the Medal of Honor.

On the 5th of February 1831, Van Speyk (29) became a Dutch national hero when he headed for the Antwerp harbor in Belgium to examine shiploads. A year prior, the Belgium Revolution led to the dissolution of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands and the proclamation of an independent Belgium. Upon arrival in Antwerp, a furious party of Antwerp workmen boarded Van Speyk’s gunboat “No.2”. Van Speyk then spoke the legendary phrase: “…and going down in history as an infamous Dutchman? I rather blow this ship and myself to smithereens, than surrender”. By throwing a lit cigar into a barrel of gunpowder in the ships armory, the ship exploded. Van Speyk did not survive his act. Because of his reluctance to comply and as a result of his display of devotion to his flag, he is considered an important hero in the history of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands. He inspirited the Dutch civilians.

Today, more than two centuries hereafter, we follow our hearts in the spirit of Jan Carel van Speyk by manufacturing these splendid Van Speyk watches. Van Speyk precisely unifies the feeling of a majestic Dutch history and our national pride. A watch brand with an international allure, as well as an undeniable Dutch identity.

Now that we learned a little history of the brand, let look at the specs of the new Van Speyk Dutch Diver. The Dutch Diver features a reliable Miyota 8215 automatic movement along with a 42mm Sandwich dial case made of stainless steel. The dive watch also features a sapphire crystal, unidirectional bezel, 200M water resistance and a screw down crown. The watch features SuperLuminova on the hands and hour markers. The bracelet is stainless steel with brushed and polished links to offer a sophisticated classic look.
