Diving/Sub-Sea Company Promotional/Gift Diver's watch


Recommended Posts

So, I've found a heavy 21 jewel Miyota diving watch which has two diving company names on the dial, the name of a ship/expedition and the divers name with serial number (no 137) on the rear.

 

I guess a Miyota 21 jewel is £40-80 but does the "proveance" add alot more? I'm deciding whether to clean it up and service it...

I would say not in this case. If it was a military watch, yes... If it was a Rolex, again, yes. :)

Is the company/companies historic in any way ? Have they participated on important operations ?

Here's the offending watch :)

That's rather nice, something you wouldn't see around too often so I'd definitely get it serviced. If you sold it you should get a decentish price amongst those who collect divers watches.. :)

That's a nice watch right there and as others have said it's worth getting it fixed up... Some such watches that were issued or gifted by companies are actually of solid quality and this one definitely is as well.

@Teg62x don't sell it for £80 whatever you do!! This looks like it is based on a Marathon Search & Rescue Medium Diver's which sell north of $1000 new, perhaps a dive watch expert might know?

I think you mean @levon2807 ....

Nice looking watch and it may well be come from a decent manufacturer but there are literally hundreds of these boat for hire floating about around the world from various companies so I doubt it will add and value to it. 

I've been on this one back in the day.

And despite the blurb about en suit rooms they are no five star hotel.

I think so yep, not as bright as my IWC though!

I thought it looked high end but then saw the Miyota movement...

I missed that, perils of browsing on your phone!

The Alliance is a Diving Support Vessel . A big one.

Oops..

I was thinking of this or the newer NSRS which is another deep submergence vehicle, it lives in the building behind mine.
