My favorite subject!

The Super Compressor divers would have to be my all time favorite style. Just so aesthetically pleasing, so cool with the internal bezel, and so many to choose from! Here are mine to add to the thread:

Wittnauer


1961 Bulova 41mm



1963 Bulova 36mm


1961 Bulova single crown



Hamilton Aquadate



1964 Benrus Ultra Deep



Enicar Sherpa Super Divette



1961 Rotary Super 41. Not a diver, but a Super Compressor nonetheless.



1970 Accutron Deep Sea. Not an EPSA case, but obviously similar style.


2008 Longines Legend. Modern remake of the classic...

They are quite rare, some are very rare.
They haven't been made for 35 years or more.
At the moment there are more on ebay than usual.

the Hamiltons pop up on ebay frequently... it appears they were made in much larger quantities than most of the other super-compressors...

cheers,
Peter
