The Bathyscaphe 300 is a modern classic, taking design elements from Aquadive Divers of the 70’s and updating them for today’s diver and watch enthusiast, as a result, and due to the massive construction, depth rating of 3000 meters / 10000 feet are acheived. The Bathyscpahe 300 uses the exact same case of the 1970s Model 50 Depth gauge Aquadive and 100% identical dimensions, but now powerded by an ETA automatic movement and featuring a unique movement supsension system that isolates the movement from the case in a soft iron cage that also acts as an antimagnetic shield and anti shock protection system. The Bathyscaphe 300 has a built in automatic HRV (Helium Release Valve) for added safety in extreme diving conditions.The 300 has a brushed and polished stainless steel case and a large easy to use crown. The super-solid unidirectional bezel is ready to time your next dive, or your next meal in the oven!The matching black rubber strap adds to the retro feel of this watch, while insuring all-day comfort.
