Finally, just a week since I placed my order @ www.aquadive.com

 

The unboxing begins…


Big box…

What’s that..

CDs or DVDs with a NATO strap



Ah, now I remembered, I ordered 2 !

Enough with the unboxing teasing…

Here they are….


With my Doxa that I’m wearing today.


Bathyscaphe 100, big and hefty, 22mm lugs, definitely putting on the omega mesh…


Vintage NOS, didn’t expect it to be this size, slightly smaller than the 2nd generation Vostok Amphibian, same kind of pillow case. It’s definitely small as compared to the Bathyscaphe 100, but by itself, it’s definitely the right size for a vintage diver built back in 1962.

Wrist shots

The Bathyscaphe 100 comes with a Isofrane rubber strap, the vanilla is driving me a little crazy thou.


The Vintage NOS diver comes with a Tropic rubber strap.

Love how they share where they are made in. http://www.aquadive.com/makingof
