Both very cool pieces, especially the U.D.T version...
The UDT runs, the other guys is DIW (dead in the water)

I love LOVE the dials, LOVE the yellow Cressi Logo printed on the dial.....really reminds me of when I started SCUBA diving at age 8 in the Bahamas.......(regulations were a but different then, and I was smaller than the tank)

HUGE CATCH on these.......size is a MINISCULE 37.5mm without the crown....heck, none of the WIVES on this board would even be caught dead with something this small strapped to their wrist

Guess these were made for female SEAL's.....;-)

anybody know the era? I'm guessing mid-to-late 60's? Seem too small for 70's....lume is still very dimly hanging in there on both.

Never seen another, in any size.

Thought I'd post em up though......now if they only made these in 42mm........

thanks T.....I have to think if they made this today in a real size with real specs, it'd be pretty cool.
Not meaning to sound flippant but they make oodles of Sub homages in today's sizes.
Or am I missing something?
Those are cool UM!
Definitely look like they've served their owners well over the years :-!

thanks Trag, no--I mean a CRESSI watch (sub-homage or otherwise)...that yellow logo just barks at me.

Like the old Scubapro I've been lusting after, I just like the old logos.......know what I mean?

I guess I'm saying I wish CRESSI & SCUBAPRO still made some cool dive watches.............o|

Scubapro still makes dive watches (in case you don't know), but this is from the Asia Pacific website. I'm in Japan, and haven't even seen one of these. They seem to be really, really rare for some reason. But then, SPro doesn't seem to have ever been the best at marketing in the States and Canada. (BTW, for some reason the pics didn't load on my machine which means they may be getting ready to post a new website, as I checked this exact thing a few weeks ago and it worked fine) Cool looking watch.

I have a Dacor very similar to these Cressi-Subs. No photos, sorry.

Positively girly. And mine needs a long trip to the spa, ergo no pics yet.

Thanks Fats!

ALL of my divers?.....Lets say I'm a bit, uh, UN-ORGANIZED......my pics are sorely lacking as well (you may have noticed;-))...........I will try to get it together. Yeah these Cressi's are pretty jazzy. Like Colin said, pretty girly though:-:)-(

Cressi-Sub Little sister

Just got this one back from IWW. Running fine but not waterproof anymore due a crystal crack. Jack said he couldn't find a replacement to fit. Wife doesn't like it, not sure what I'm going to do with it. Cool watch though!



And for scale:

Re: Little sister

Sorry, I was putting better pictures up. One strange thing about this watch... the bezel is uni-directional the wrong direction... only turns clockwise. Movement is the ETA 2671. Inside of case back is stamped Systema Watch.
