    Exclamation Ran across some nice vintage Aquadive content (UPDATED)

    For anyone interested.

    Mr. PIMP,

    I too found some cool sites for others to look at while on my own quest to learn. In fact, I invite others to post articles about vintage Aquadive watches they have ran across. Hope ya'll enjoy reading as much as I do...

    Thanks again, and I hope you don't mind me coming into your post. Instead of starting a new thread, I figured I would just add on to yours. In addition, I hope you don't mind me making it a sticky either, as this can be the Go-To post for Aquadive articles! (thanks for the permission ahead of time)

    Great picture. This dial has always made me think of an old speedometer. It's just beautiful!!!

    My vintage AD collection:

    A square/cushion case version of the round 1000m watch called the Flying Saucer or Toilet Seat. Note that this is an aftermarket vintage ZRC bracelet and not original.


    A ladies version of the FS, the model 1069:




    The Model 1065, aka Flying Saucer, aka Toilet Seat, aka 709 or 709-1 (slightly different cases between these last two):


    Above is the original bracelet, below are some other vintage options.



    Time Depth Model 50, a beast of a watch even by today's standards





    Will post up more pics once we get some sun around here!
