    Aquadive could make a new version of the model 50 with a working depth guage. I'd buy one if not two.

    Donít be scared off by the size. They are very easy to wear. I love my model 50.

    Great piece Ariel!! and Ben yours is killa as well mate!!..Id like to have one in the future though just one thing im not so sure of and that is obviously yours have stood the test of time and been well cared for....is there enough crown protecion to have your wrist tangled in line,weed,grass or go in to a machine and not tear the crown off? The weed and grass line is genuine, we have a never ending problem around my farms with siver and green leaf ciratro that is like wire to clear plus obviously clearing line off the deck or spool from one of the punters on board that know all there is in regards to fishing...(of which i dont)
    all the best guys

    If you wear the Model 50 on the left arm, than there is enough protection, because the crown is on the left side. But for your special circumstances I would rather recommend a contemporary tool watch like a Casio G-Shock or if you want something mechanical a tegimented Sinn U1, an icehardened Damasko, a Dievas or Dekla 6-Steel, or an Archimede Outdoor Protect. All of these watches got proper crown guards, swiss standard movements and hardened cases to withstand even the hardest wear and tear. The Model 50 was a hard to beat watch at its time and is a real classic now, but it will not fit the requirements of today.
