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.

The white rectangular hands looks good matching the hour indices.

As usual, I just love domed crystals.

From the top, it really reminds me of the Vostok 2nd generation Amphibian.

A very cheeky “WATERPROOF” caseback.

Although it’s small, like I mentioned in an earlier post, it’s built in the 1960s, don’t expect a 40-50mm size watches in those days.
