Hi everyone,

This is a Bulova diver that I enjoy wearing and I would be curious to see other postings of vintage divers that may be out there. I would like to find a set of gaskets for this particular model if anyone has a resource. I would certainly appreciate some help. Thanks, Steve ;)

Hi everyone,


Steve,
Your case number is 714. The crown number is 386-3W, Back gasket G796 and crystal 714AWD
I will check and see what I have.

Yes I do have the exact watch on a bracelet. That one is very special to me. I can't access Photobucket right now, but I'll post pics later. BTW, how'd I miss this thread in the first place? ??? ???

Cheers!
Mike

Yours looks to be in stunning condition. Here's some shots of mine.









I got this one from a great guy at last year's NYC meet. I had one exactly like it when I was a kid, but somewhere in time lost it. I searched for one ever since.

Here's a shot of it on the original tropic that was on my original.





I'm not sure how old my original was, but the one I have now is from '68 near as I can tell. The markings on the caseback are really worn. What year is yours from?

Cheers!
Mike

^-^

Mike, nice one! I like the bracelet on it. My watch was produced in 1970. I wish I could find the original bracelet.

Thanx! Very nice. I have noticed that parts for these are tough to come by. I was fortunate mine is on the original bracelet.

Cheers!

Silly question: why is it called snorkel?
I've never given it any thought. I would assume that because 'snorkeling' is a form of recreational swimming/diving that's why. Maybe someone else has a better answer. ??? ???

Cheers!
Mike

I'm sure I read somewhere that "Deep sea " was the American market name, and that "Snorkel" was for the rest of the world.
