While our all our review ratings are seen above (the scores are all quite high), below we’ll take a more in-depth look at why they received these ratings, from the features of each watch all the way to each watch price. Does this company truly live up to its name?
Swiss Legend Sprint Racer Review
The first of the five watches we’re going to review is one whose design has come to be expected by anyone familiar with the company.
Mainly, the company is known for creating quartz-powered watches with Swiss movement, and it is already known that these watches do come from an Asian assembly.
Despite the more modern, sporty design of the Racer, the company has managed to craft a piece that seems to do well in every single aspect – in fact it even holds up against true luxury timepieces.
The high watch quality can’t be denied here. Thanks to the watch’s quartz-powered Swiss movement, timekeeping is an absolute dream.
You won’t have to worry about timekeeping with this watch as not only are quartz-powered watches the most accurate timepieces as far as wristwatches go, the Sprint Racer in particular excels at it.
The design is sporty but masterful, and its features do match that of a sporting watch. For example, aside from the watch’s excellent chronograph and sub-dial functions it can also be worn during snorkelling sessions, being able to handle upwards to 100 meters of depth.
Its design is also classy enough that you can take it with you to formal events without getting any strange looks. The gold-tone hands on a black dial look very impressive, giving it a modern edge that overcomes the weakness of modern watches looking less prestigious than its more classical counterparts. It gets a perfect rating of 5/5 because this particular watch was made incredibly well both inside and out, and the price is reasonable. You can’t go wrong with the Sprint Racer.
Swiss Legend Trimix Diver Review
Here we have a beautiful watch that just like the Sprint Race could have been perfect. However, the Trimix Diver watch is marred by just one single flaw – the company’s over enthusiastic advertising on the band.
The design of a watch needs to be picture perfect in every way, and the giant words SWISS as well as LEGEND do not have to be in plain view on either side of the piece in order to get it noticed because frankly, this watch does a fantastic job on its own.
It is solid and beautiful, but unfortunately the ugly words on the band distract from its overall beauty which is a real shame. Other than this one blatant flaw, the rest of this Trimix Diver review is filled with nothing but praise.
Being a watch specifically built for diving, the Trimix is an incredibly durable watch. Similar to the another dive watch we reviewed; the ‘Automatic Dive’ by Seiko, this is also capable of resisting underwater pressure all the way up to 200 meters (that is approximately 660 feet).
The light blue and silver-toned design of the piece goes hand in hand with its main focus, and the chronograph simply adds to the overall usefulness of this timepiece. Despite the advertising, the silicone band is a perfect contrasting black to the rest of the piece, which all goes together to create a fantastic looking watch in every which way.
That said, as a sporting watch its price is a little higher than what one would normally come to expect from this company’s diving line, but it is most definitely worth the price of admission.
Everything in this watch clicks and the overall design, minus the flaw on the band synergizes well. It deserves its 4.5/5 rating, which cements the brand’s ability to build sporting watches for every occasion.
Swiss Legend Commander Review
Continuing the trend of sporty diving watches, we have the Swiss Legend Commander Review. Similar to the first two watches in our reviews this is also quartz-powered with Swiss movement, and from what they have shown us, they can build remarkably well.
Fortunately the company does not disappoint as the Commander does everything as advertised. It is a diver’s watch meaning it can handle 200 meters deep underwater, and thanks to how it was built it is also incredibly durable.
It utilizes a sapphitek crystal for its window, a black silicone band similar to the Trimix and a stainless steel case.
The overall design of the Commander Chronograph watch is a mix of bold as well as classical design choices to create something that feels very solid overall.
For example, as far as the colors and materials go it’s relatively classic fare except for the silicone band. On the other hand, the large hour markers while something that is supposed to help you see underwater also feels like a very modern design choice that meshes together very well.
