With the Bathyscaphe 100, we set out to create a new classic, and protected it using a high tech scratch-free DLC coating applied in Switzerland, and a state of the art scratch-free Ceramic bezel insert. A sports watch that looks ready to tackle any situation you might want to throw at it. While it looks straight out of the ’60’s, it’s a thoroughly modern dive watch with a depth rating of 1000 meters. The matching black rubber strap adds to the retro feel of this watch, while insuring all-day comfort.

The BS 100 DLC is a really nice package. Time keeping very accurate for the first week of ownership and the quality of the watch is among the best i have seen. Finish seems very durable and looks great with any color Isofrane. Aquadive’s customer service is what really sold me prior to purchase and they delivered. I cant think of another watch that offers the quality and value of the BS 100.

Dom P from Sydney Australia –
The BS 100 DLC is a very nice watch. It is exceptionally well made, keep the time well, is not too big, along the design lines of watches from the 70’s, it is extremely comfortable to wear with the ISOFRANE STRAP. I did not use it under water just yet but the crown clicks give a positive feel and are not too loose so it can’t be moved easily by accident. The Luminova on that watch is excellent, very close to the Tritium of a BALL watch. The watch was delivered to Sydney Australia from Austria in a timely manner and Fedex provided an excellent service. I will consider buying another Aquadive watch in the future as I believe you get a lot for your money which is pretty rare these days and it looks like the watch will last a long time.
