Bathysphere 100 GMT
Although it draws inspiration from our original 1970 design, the Bathyscaphe GMT is a thoroughly modern watch, with a 42 x 49 x 13 millimeter case CNC machined out of a solid block of German 316L surgical stainless steel. The caseback and crown screw tightly down to ensure a water resistance of 1,000 meters (3,333 feet) and, 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 12:00.
The steel bezel is topped with a scratch-resistant and luminescent ceramic timing ring and precisely ratchets through 120 positions, allowing you to time everything from decompression stops to pizza deliveries.
Inside ticks a self-winding Swiss movement, the ETA 2893-2, which drives hours, minutes and sweep seconds, a quickset date function, and a GMT hand that allows for tracking of a second time zone when used in conjunction with the 24-hour scale on the dial.
Befitting a capable watersports watch, the Bathyscaphe 100 GMT comes fitted with a 22-millimeter ISOfrane rubber strap with stainless steel Aquadive-signed buckle.
The Bathyscaphe 100 GMT is limited to 500 pieces (of each color) and the individual number is engraved on the caseback.

My search for an everyday watch is over.
The BS100 GMT is fantastic. The quality of the workmanship and the materials exceeds my expectations and the fit on my wrist is perfect. An oversized diver with mid sized wearability.
I know this is a watch I will enjoy wearing for a very long time.
Bought this late 2013, been using as daily wearer, excellent build, time keeping. Wears well with suits and looks just as fantastic in a relaxed setting. Highly recommended. Excellent customer service.

The Bathyscaphe 100 GMT is the most satisfying watch I have ever owned, and I’ve had both Rolex and Omega in the past! I am absolutely astounded by the extraordinary quality, superb fit and finish and attention to detail Aquadive accomplished with this watch. The vintage style case is a work of art, the ceramic bezel is beautiful (and turns with the best feel I have experienced) and it’s extremely comfortable on the wrist. Of course, it runs flawlessly and keeps great time. Every aspect of the watch is of the highest quality and is built to a purpose… no unneeded flash or embellishment. It’s a professional “instrument” in the best sense of the word.
This watch is really nice, even my wife have noticed that I have a new watch (and I have 20 watches). The finish is excellent, it looks really cool, and with the BOR bracelet it’s also very comfortable on the wrist. The watch has been running within a second/24h since I received it. The watch has significant presence on the wrist while beeing very discrete at the same time. And of course very nice, long lasting lume without beeing too much.
Also, customer service has been excellent. Aquadive have been very helpful in helping me decide which bracelet to get. In the end I actually ended up with both, but still, quick response on e-mail with polite answers to all of my stupid questions. Get the BOR!
