Phorcys (Greek sea god)
Tangaroa / Takaroa (Maori god of the sea)
here and here.
I will be closing this thread now so we can move onto the next stage.
I wasn't able to login yesterday as planned. My home computer decided to go all wonky, giving me the BSOD (blue screen of death) multiple times for no apparent reason. Did some updates and I "think" the problem is solved...so far.
I will check back in tomorrow.
This is a good start. Keep them coming!
I will check back in when I return to the US.
I was looking up obscure sea gods and came up with: Namaka, Ikatere and always thought a John Paul Jones connection would be interesting. One of the ships that he captured was called the Serapis, after, I think, another obscure sea god.
I would suggest staying clear of direct references to wars and battles from recent history out of respect for the veterans.
serpents/sea gods are a big PLUS
snakehead is funny as hell imho but since I live and sail on the bay here, some rockfisherman might toss me in the water if he saw my watch...those snakeheads are nasty!
Apart from Pheon a few postings up, what about:
* One sixty four (or: onesixtyfour) since 164 fathoms is 300 meters.
* Calypso (need no explain, I think)
* Trieste (since the original Bathyscaph was called the Trieste)
* Leonardo (Da Vinci was the first who came up with dive equipment) 'Leonardo' may collide with IWC's Da Vinci...
* Reef (as in Barrier Reef)
And perhaps this link: Scuba Diving - MarineBio.org will inspire other forum members to come up with a name!
Dive watches; not only for underwater
MKII: Merman; Frogman...
Some more names, hope it is allowed to use them
Conshelf I (or 1, don't know which type of indication was used)
Conshelf II (or 2, again not sure about the type indication used)
Both underwater projects from Jacques Cousteau in the red sea during 1962 /1963
American underwater studies conducted by General Electric Compagny Space Division during the 1969 / 1970.
I think also good names to use on a watch and at the same time playing an important role in the dive history.
I should design watches myself, really good name to use, haha
Ok I'll throw my two cents in. I've been looking around for months and this name speaks to me Argo. You may ask what the hell is an Argo and why would we name a watch that. Well if we are looking to keep it nautical what better name than the ship built by Jason and the Argonauts. Basically a group came together for the thrill of an adventure (Search for the Golden Fleece) They enlisted a master craftsman "Argos" who with their help built the largest and finest magical ship ever created. Read this short link or get the book if you like the classics. And yes I think it would fit quite nice on top of the right 300 script. Would make a very nice case back as well. Jason and the Argonauts - Charles Kingsley - From The Heroes, or Greek Fairy Tales for My Children
How about MKII KRAKEN ?
