I like that watch more and more each day.
It is so flexible based on the strap thanks to it's beautiful yet simple dial. Can be somewhat sporty or classy hand6.gif

Thanks for the welcome. I think that the Vortex would look GREAT on any band/strap..... My watch is #29 of the pre-order, all I can say is that the watch is great and Anders service is right up there with the very best. As far as the bezel on the watch I believe the first 30 pre-orders will have the countdown bezel instead of the count up bezel to make them a LE. Anyway the Vortex is one solid watch, GREAT job Dievas (Anders).......

Thanks for the reply bozz...I had no idea that Anders was doing the bezels this way for the first 30 pre-orders to make them an LE.  I'm not sure how I missed this...anyway, I'm waiting on #46 and can't wait to see the Vortex in person.

since they are all numbered that would make them all LE's....I would wait to hear from Anders here until making any assumptions as to why some have count down/count up bezels which btw work pretty much the same and some WIS actually prefer a count up bezel although most divers don't use them at all since this method of measuring dive time is pretty much antiquated since being introduced by Rolex in 1954 :D

Hi,

I did not make the assumption. Anders himself told me at time of payment in an email that the first 30 watches would have the LE countdown bezel to make them different from the rest. Do you really think I would make somthing like that up???? Give me some credit.

This has become an interesting topic (regarding the bezel type of either count-up or count-down). 

I have seen many pics of sub-#30 Vortexes without the count-down bezel which was why I was really surprised to see bozz's (bozz's is the only Vortex I have seen so far with the count-down bezel which is why I assumed that Anders provided this one as a custom mod).  Hey...at least a few here at 3T have Vortexes from the single digit serial #'s.

I would say that I generally prefer the regular count-up bezel type...seeing this one definitely had me doing a double take.

Hey Anders...can you comment on what options you have going on based on Vortex serial #'s.

Thanks in advance.

1st of all I wasn't referring to you but just making a general statement,my apologies... there are 10 of us who already have a Vortex numbered 1-10 with the original 0-60 bezels so I don't know how the 1st 30 will be LE's?... and according to Anders post below this new batch will consist of serials up to 31 and they have the different bezel?...again they are all numbered LE's as shown in the pre-order thread 0-71 which are reserved by #  so the only thing making any of them different is the bezel and not the LE # imo...so that is why I stated that it would be best to wait and hear from Anders on this subject..

The first batch of Vortex is here! Hot off the watchmaking bench from Germany!



And undergoing our inhouse quality control.
This batch will consist of serials up to 31.

So for those who ordered earlier, we will be in contact you soon.
There is a little surprise for you. Only exclusive to those who preordered early.

Sincerely
Dievas Watch Company

Just to clear the misunderstanding.

Yes number 11-31 has the countdown bezel, we wanted to mix in a countdown bezel to accentuate the pilot theme of the watch. And also a little survey to how people like the different bezel. All others will have the regular time elapsed bezel.

We did ask each customer if they mind a countdown bezel before dispatch.

Best Regards
Dievas Watch Company
