    Anyone know why this model does not have "Made in Germany" on the dial at 6pm location as other Aquadive watches?

    The model it is based on (Bathysphere 100 GMT) doesn't have that text in its dial. But in its (the Bathysphere's) caseback it reads "Swiss made movement - German made case", while the Poseidon's caseback lacks any such information. Probably due to design reasons.

    BTW, does anybody know the grade (top, elabore...) of the movement inside the Poseidon?

    the "Made in Germany" label has become a joke over the past years, there are some $150 watches on EBay that carry the "Made in Germany" label, and there is nothing German about them

    Aquadive feels that those labels are deceitful, because sometimes they give inferior quality products the legitimacy to bear a label they don't deserve. The new Swiss Made law indicates that the design and prototype, movement and assembly are to be carried out in Switzerland, The new Aquadive Poseidon was designed in 1970 in the USA, prototyped in germany in 2013, which disqualifies it from the Swiss Made label, main parts of the case are machined in Germany, the movements are made in Switzerland and the watches were assembled in Switzerland too, and there are even more substantial costs for parts spent in Switzerland, despite those facts and the high quality and European origin of most components, the watches are not Swiss Made according to the "Swiss Made" label although they have more parts of Swiss Origin, and more costs spent in Switzerland than many "Swiss Made" watches.

    The movements are Elabore and are then adjusted in 5 positions

    Awesome. Also, I noticed the quantity available went up to 36 from 8. What happened there? How many total watches are in this second run?

    Hi, this is a 300 piece edition. The quantity on the store page only indicates how many pieces are assembled and ready to ship, and does not indicate general availability. And now all watches were assembled and the 36 pieces reflect the last pieces available of the entire edition
