About Aquadive Watches

Founded in 1962 during the pioneering days of recreational scuba diving, Aquadive Watches were renowned as dependable tools born out of necessity for divers who required the means of timing duration underwater. Now headquartered in Vienna, Austria, Aquadive continues its proud traditions of being an innovative and independent tool watch manufacturer utilizing exemplary craftsmanship to deliver uncompromising, yet affordable tools that serve the pursuit of exploring the unknown. To accomplish this, each Aquadive watch begins its life as a solid block of surgical grade steel, that is designed, engineered, CNC-machined and hand-finished, before being equipped with Swiss-made automatic movements, ensuring the utmost quality and reliability in every watch.

NOS MODEL 77

DON’T CALL IT A COMEBACK

The NOS Model 77 is like having a vintage dive watch you can actually get wet! Built from remaining stock of cases made in 1977, and utilizing either new ETA, or serviced vintage A. Schild Swiss movements, wearing one of these retro divers is like going back in time.

A DEEPER DIVE

“NOS” stands for “New Old Stock” and everything about the Model 77 lives up to that. We found a stash of steel cases from the Aquadive Maritime, a watch sold by us in 1977. We’ve updated the gaskets, dial and crystal to ensure these old watches could be ready for wet work while retaining as much of their vintage charm as possible. There’s no reason to baby this watch, which is rated for 200 meters of water resistance. A helium release valve is set on the case flank at 2:00, in case your adventures involve time in a helium-saturated diving system.

Despite its vintage roots, the NOS Model 77 is big enough to suit contemporary tastes. The stainless steel case is 41 millimeters in diameter, with a versatile end to end dimension of 48 millimeters. The black steel bezel is topped by a fitting black aluminum ring fully marked for timing up to an hourlong dive or anything else.

We offer the NOS Model 77 with a choice of two movements: a 1970s-era A. Schild calibre 1902, or a moden ETA 2836. Both are selfiwinding, though the Schild beats at a slower rate and does not offer a quickset date function, to suit those looking for a true vintage feel.

True to its era, we’ve mounted a “porthole” style rubber strap on the Model 77, just as it would have been back in the ‘70s.
