Examples Of Divers Watches We Buy

It is not uncommon for our clients to have an old watch that was used for scuba or hardhat diving. In many cases these watches are no longer working and in well used condition. Guess what - we love watches in rough shape! Of course, we also like shiny new looking dive watches, but ones dating to the 1950's into the 2000s that were actually used for professional and recreational use are our favorites.  

If you have watch you are considering selling, email us photos at helmets@nationsattic.com
or text them to 316-371-1828 

This old Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner watch in well used condition is exactly what we are interested in buying!

Diver's watches will typically have a ring or bezzle on the outside of the dial that helped them time the dive.

Doxa Automatic US Divers Searambler Watch

A well-used Doxa Sub 300T Searambler with US Divers logo on the dial is another perfect example of a watch we are always buying. 

While a dive watch from the 1970s isn't that old, we have collectors worldwide that enjoy preserving them!

Some watches were issued to divers by the military, like this Tornek Rayville shown right.

If a family member was in the military and used a diving watch, let us know. With a few photos we can make you a top market offer!

blancpain aqua lung automatic dive watch

The Blancpain Aqua Lung dive watch at the left features a No Radiation symbol on the dial.

 

Some watches had this image to indicate the hands and markers were not painted with a radioactive paint to make them glow underwater

 

These watches are safe to handle & ones we are interested in buying!
