Vintage NOS Diver

The reason why I bought this is because it’s a limited edition series build from new old stock parts that Aquadive kept in their inventory.

Quoting Aquadive:

We have in our possession a very limited number of new old stock pieces of this classic 60s diver. A piece of dive watch history, a piece of Aquadive. This genuine NOS (New Old Stock) Aquadive has a Swiss hand made case equipped with a bidirectional rotating bezel and a classic aluminum insert. The cases were found fully assembled with a heslite domed crystal in the old Aquadive inventory. We have carefully re-assembled them by hand using all new gaskets. This watch had/has a depth rating of 660ft, and is equipped with a new Aquadive dial with applied superluminova markers. It is operated by a new Swiss Made genuine ETA 2824-2, 25 jewel movement replacing the original movement in order to guarantee performance for years to come.

Aquadive Bathyscaphe 100

I am very impressed with the solid built of the watch, there’s definitely a lot of wrist presence with the Bathyscaphe 100.

The whole dial design, hour markers and the choice of hands makes it very attractive as a modern diver yet retain some of the old designs.

I went to K2 to service my Aqua Dive Caribbean, then as usual, Mr Goh will bring some of his latest goods for us to take a look.

He brought out 2 Citizens, saying he just got it like that day or the day before.
