Who knew there was an Aquadive Forum on WUS? Not me evidently. I've had my vint. '69 for many years. It was given as a gift by an older friend of mine (my uncles friend really) Bill-who happened to start a company eventually called Body Glove by experimenting with hot liquid rubber in his garage in the 40s or 50s I think he told me?. Anyway-He decided for some unknown reason to impart his old AD to me after a day spent with him at Abalone Cove south of LA. Its worked beautifully for years and only recently has slowed to about -30sec pr day.
The real irony is up until about 4 yrs ago I had a hell of a time finding our ANYTHING about Aquadive. Then a guy on the Omega forum linked me to a site and boom...I finally learned about the O&W connection and the Jenny and all that. (wish i owned a Jenny) but i am extremely happy with this old beater because I know it earned its nicks as first a treasure diver as worn by my friend and then as a snorkler and now a casual watch as worn by me. (don't trust the seals any longer but its never had a lick of moisture afaict)
So-I gather most on this forum are into a 'new' manifestation of the Aquadive? Or the company was reborn, new owners, whatever...I'll have to be linked to the info. As I said-almost nobody knew what an Aquadive was a few years back. I almost thought it was just a generic swiss junker at one point-not a quality piece (though I know my model isnt the top tier dive model). The other oronic thing was I was fascinatd with vintage O&W long before I knew there was a connection between the 2 brands/makers.
