I bought this staggering watch after a long search for a vintage style diver and having read a number of very positive reviews of both Aquadive and their products, I decided to order the Bathyscaphe. CS and delivery were perfect - hats off to Ben who answers emails at the speed of light - no nonsense approach, all inquiries answered almost immediately. The Bathyscaphe is a watch which needs some time on the wrist to be fully appreciated. The purist design expresses the 70's style without any halfhearted attempts to modernize it. It doesnt need to be improved - it is not a simple homage to the 70's, it is a tribute to the the golden era of dive watches.
The attention given to detail, the overall finish of the watch are absolutely staggering. Aquadive seems to firmly adhere to the saying "the devil lies in the details" - after a few days with Bathscaphe the only word that comes to mind is flawless.
Although a little top-heavy the watch is very comfortable to wear, mainly due the the wide case that gently "clings" to the wrist, while the slightly conical bezel gives the watch a light and compact feel.
Overall I would like to express my deepest admiration for the passion and commitment Aquadive put into this piece of horological art. Through quality and masterclass workmanship Aquadive will probably have a number of devoted cutomers for whom one Aquadive is definetely not enough...a feeling I am already experiencing.
