Aquadive Bathyscaphe 500

As previously discussed, the display case back allows you to bear witness to the beautifully decorated movement that powers the 500, with its circular graining on both the top and bottom side of main plate, its rhodium-plated bridges with Geneva waves, color contrast engraving, diamond machined chamfers and bevels, ceramic ball bearings, and its flat polished screws. One Aquadive staff member said it best: “It is the Crème de la Crème of the 3 hand movements.”

There is no question that the Bathysphere 500 is in a league of its own, given its origin, features, movement and specs, but I believe that, as watch aficionados, it’s important to feel an intimate personal connection to the watches we wear, especially those that we deem as ‘keepers.’ Several years back, I, a police officer from a small town, began to support the company as a part-time moderator, as I believed they exemplified the very characteristics I had devoted my life to; integrity, professionalism and transparency. Aquadive, as a company, is not only committed to providing quality timepieces at affordable prices, but they aggressively pursue their customer’s wishes. They, unlike any other brand I have reviewed, pay special attention to the collective ideas of their customers, and when possible, they make active attempts to incorporate the best ideas into their current or upcoming designs. Of course, no brand can satisfy the demands of so many, but it’s very refreshing to stand behind a brand that certainly tries.

With a retail price of $2,990.00 USD, I am confident in saying that Aquadive has offered yet again a timepiece that should, by all accounts, cost thousands more.

 

Ariel Soltura has had a passion for watches since an early age; one that was passed onto him by his father, who was one of a handful of people to own a Rolex GMT on the island of Cuba, where Ariel was born. Ariel Soltura, who is a full time police officer, husband, father and Dive Watch aficionado, is well respected in the watch community for his honest thoughts and comments on "all things watches." When not patrolling the streets, throwing footballs with the community's youth or perusing various watch forums, he can be found hanging out with his six year old son, Aric, his greatest passion of all.
