Ok..two things. Nope, make it three. First of all I voted for the Devil Diver and may seriously consider snatching one up. Second, in the comments one spastic plank says if they used a mechanical in it he'd jump. The watch pictured clearly has Automatic printed on the dial. Third, another pillock said 200m isn't considered deep enough for a dive watch in todays world. Well that is plenty deep enough for me, considering I will probably never do more than a tourist snorkel at a resort.

I hope they stay close to the original and don't feel the need to make it "Turtle" sized.
It would also be nice to see them slap a 9015 in there in lieu of the "uhf" quartz.



@NC- I believe the one pictured is of the "original" that they will be re-issuing in an ,as yet , unknown form.

Gah, my least favorite due to the PADI turtle look and being a chrono fan. Oh well, if it's sized right, maybe swap it in the mix.

Foggy Johnson is right on both counts

Oh, no...I say NAY, NAY!! If you wear it, ye shall, er, I dunno, be forced to wear pastel pants suits? I dunno. But I sure as sheep-dip won't wear that wartch as long as it's got her mark...

The real number of the beast is 616.

The best number of the beast is by Iron Maiden.

If it worked for Seiko... Why not Bulova.

The mouth-breather who said 200m isn't deep enough for his muff diving and 530 pm drinks at the yacht club. Is he from WUS? They love 'em some 500m WR and fart valves for when they're wetting the lawn.

I'm a fan. It's different enough to be interesting aside from the Turtle (which I thought was near perfect, size and all). If this comes in at 42mm it will be sweet

Oh, and it wasn't my first choice either and I hope they don't make it Other-moonwatch sized, but I like it!

Gotta know more about the movements and where/how they're made. I'm sour on Bulova, especially since they moved outta Queens.

I'm gonna buy one of these. Assuming they don't fuck it up. And make it too big. And include a NATO.

John, I think that Bulova will present this watch on a custom designed.......NATO.

"For those that seek something more limited there will be an orange dial version released at Basel as well, and you guessed it, only 666 of them will be made. And for vintage collectors that are devotees to Analog/Shift, 30 of the orange Devil Diver will have personalized case backs with the A/S logo and come with a special NATO strap."(From watchreport.com)

At least the orange dialed s.e. will come on a NATO.
