    Aquadive Bathyscape 100 Bronze timekeeping

    Just a quick note to let folks know that my BS-100 Bronze has kept remarkably good time since I purchased it new years ago. I've owned a number of fine watches, several more expensive than the Aquadive, and the BS-100 is one of my best timekeepers. It runs pretty much spot and is relatively impervious to positional variation. I don't know if I got lucky with this one or if Aquadive just does a very good in selecting and regulating its ETA movements, but this one deserves mention.

    Thanks.
    John

    Best bronze watch available imho, especially yours with the applied markers. I'm currently on a 2017 self enforced watch ban but if one of those came up with the applied markers I'd jump all over it.

    I was thinking of selling it woodruffm (and still may) but then I timed it and discovered that's it's my most accurate watch with an ETA movement, and I have a few. The triangle on the bezel did get a weird black spot (rub mark), not from wear, but just from being stored in a box with a soft, inner top. I mentioned this to Aquadive years ago and they told me there were some paint issues on the earliest models that they had corrected. They were also kind enough to send me a new bezel, which I've yet to install, probably for fear of scratching the watch

    Is this the one with bronze or SS case back? I think any aquadive with applied markers is worth keeping since they are quite rare

    I just picked up my BS100 Bronze--I absolutely love it. Mine has the painted dial with bronze case back. Keeps great time and really well built. I cant wait for summer.
