A few months ago I managed to pick up this vintage 1960s dive watch off of eBay and have been trying to research the Mabo brand. Mabo is almost certainly a victim of the quartz crisis and seems to be a French watch manufacturer given that "antichoc" is plastered on the dial. Other than that I...

I bought this in Paris in January and I have used it a lot, though it is pretty clean of scratches. Made by the French dive-gear manufacturer Ralf Tech.
It is a Hybrid Drive, which is described as a kind of kinetic quartz movement with a modified 'high speed' rotor and a German-made...

Triton is a familiar name to vintage dive watch collectors, but to others it may seem like another zombie brand being resurrected. The watch had a very short life span, but nonetheless a very interesting life.
Triton officially came into the market in 1963 and faded away just as quartz...

Can anyone recommend a good repairer of vintage divers in UK or US?
My newest acquisition will need servicing, calibration, and pressure testing. Be frank, though. Am I expecting too much to be able to take a vintage diver like this on my next dive?
I fell in love with this watch and bought it - it was a low-enough price for me to go ahead and snap it up, while the seller has a good reputation, he couldn't answer many questions, and didn't have the tools to remove the back bezel and provide images of movement. I had it sent directly to...

Hi, this is my first post and I am by no means a watch expert, but I am looking for information on this watch I bought many years ago. A Dodane type 21 helicopter edition. On the research I have done, my understanding is that there were only about 50 ever made of these. I'm enclosing a picture...
