The Bathyscaphe 300 is our most capable watch, with its abyssal depth rating of 3,000 meters that comes courtesy of a steel case CNC machined out of a solid block of German 316L surgical stainless steel. Should you find yourself in a helium-enriched diving bell, the case is equipped with an automatic gas relief valve nestled between the strap horns at 6:00, in place of the orifice of the old Model 50’s depth gauge.
The bezel is topped with a scratch-resistant and luminescent ceramic timing ring and precisely ratchets through 60 positions, allowing you to time everything from decompression stops to parking meters.
Inside ticks a self-winding Swiss movement, the ETA 2824-2, which drives hours, minutes and sweep seconds, a quickset date function, and is adjusted to five positions for accuracy.
Befitting a capable watersports watch, the Bathyscaphe 100 comes fitted with a 24-millimeter ISOfrane rubber strap with stainless steel Aquadive-signed buckle.
The Bathyscaphe 300 is limited to 500 pieces and the individual number is engraved on the caseback.

Jim Webb –
It is more than just the specs on this watch – although the specs are very impressive! It is the whole package – the finishing, the accuracy of the watch, the depth rating…
The build quality is better than what you can see in any of the on line pictures. The Bathyscaphe 300 is one lovely chunk of a watch with a lot of technical background.
I recommend this watch highly. You will NOT be disappointed with Aquadive service or the watch!
I’ve recently got this watch and I couldn’t be happier
