Watch-Lust: Dievas Vortex


The Dievas Vortex is a beast of a watch. Looking something like a mix between a diver’s watch, a pilot’s watch, a military watch and a support truss from a bridge; the Vortex is clean, bold and striking. At first glance, it appears to have somewhat classic styling, then you notice the harsher than normal angles of the lugs, the thin but purposeful bezel and the 8 o’clock crown, and you realize this is something different… And the fun only starts on the surface: the Vortex is a maniacally overbuilt watch. An aerospace grade titanium case, helium release valve, double-gasket screw down crown, domed sapphire crystal with “military grade” anti-reflective coating, 500m dive depth, ETA 2824-2 auto and a waterproof leather band make sure that this watch is built for survival. In their own words “this is a watch designed as a precise time keeping instrument for currently active military, security and rescue personnel, overbuilt to withstand harsh conditions on land, sea and air.” So, whether you need a watch for scaling a 65 story-building in the middle of the night to install wire taps and such, or you just want a handsome tough-as-nails watch for your daily grind, you should seriously consider the Vortex. Oh yeah, and did I mention that this watch costs under $1,000? wow
