    AQUADIVE - The Dive Machine
    Upon the relaunch of the iconic AQUADIVE brand in the Fall of 2011,
    Aquadive's main goals was to offer genuine European made watches that represent
    the best value and quality in the industry, and to offer great customer
    satisfaction in the process. So we obviously chose to incorporate some modern
    and innovative German technology into our new line of watches, but on the same
    token also respect and honor the legacy of the original 70s AQUADIVE watches by
    remaining true to their handmade Swiss craftsmanship.

    Since AQUADIVE's relaunch in 2011, we have reached record heights with
    the brand. And now, we've reached record lows. When our engineers designed the
    new Bathyscaphe 300, they designed it to withstand its rated depth of
    3000m/9900ft, and even deeper. Last year in Germany, the Bathyscaphe 300 was
    pressure tested in a lab at a simulated depth of 5000m/16400ft, and it easily
    passed without the use of any gas or liquid filling. So this year we decided to
    take it a step further and do what very few watch companies are even capable of,
    which is actually testing the watch on the ocean floor in the Gulf of Mexico for
    10 hours at depths where only a select few legendary and famous dive watches
    have ever been.

    Since June of this year, National Geographic has been sponsoring the
    211-foot Exploration Vessel NAUTILUS as it undergoes a six month scientific and
    archeological exploration of the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. The
    exploration is led by world renowned scientist and explorer Dr. Robert Ballard
    of TITANIC fame. The Principal Investigator on this historic exploration is
    Fritz Hanselmann. Fritz also happens to be a Chief Underwater Archeologist and
    Dive Training Officer at Texas State University, as well as a proud AQUADIVE
    owner and supporter who has traveled and dived all over the world. Last year
    while wearing his trusty AQUADIVE Bathyscaphe 300, Fritz led an exploration in
    the Chagres River in Panama and discovered ancient shipwrecks believed to have
    been from the lost fleet of Captain Henry Morgan.

    And on July 24th, 2013 while aboard the state of the art Exploration
    Vessel NAUTILUS off the coast of Texas, Fritz bravely and confidently strapped
    his Bathyscaphe 300 to the tethered ROV submersible Hercules before it was cast
    off into the unexplored depths. Fritz's Bathyscaphe 300 was taken down to a max
    depth of 1390m/4580ft for a 15 hour dive during a mapping expedition of the
    deepest shipwreck excavation ever accomplished in North America. And as
    expected, his AQUADIVE Bathyscaphe 300 performed flawlessly during that lengthy
    time span and made Fritz a very proud owner. As of this writing, Fritz's trusty
    Bathyscaphe 300 is currently back on his wrist while the NAUTILUS sails the Gulf
    of Mexico and Caribbean Sea during the next four months in search of even more
    undiscovered ancient shipwrecks.
    Obviously the fact that AQUADIVE designed a dive a watch to be able to
    reach such great depths, goes far beyond the practical needs of recreational
    divers. But the high end engineering with the least tolerances possible in the
    industry and finely executed craftsmanship needed to produce such a capable dive
    watch, is so exceptional that it makes it a true value and a mechanical wonder
    to behold. And it also offers our customers precision, durability, and longevity
    built into each and every AQUADIVE watch.
    The results of our new achievement and commitment to value and quality
    clearly show in the craftsmanship of our fine Swiss watches, and also in the
    praise from our worldwide customers and reviewers. You can read more about Fritz
    Hanselmann and the NAUTILUS at the links below. And for more information on our
    dive watches, please visit our website.
