While Bulova/Accutron made many killer divers in the 1960s and 1970s, the dual-crown Deep Sea has to be the coolest kid on the block. Sure, there are the Bulova Super Compressors, and Accutron made several awesome Snorkel models, but none are quite as bold as the Deep Sea.
At first glance, this model looks like it may have a Super Compressor case with its dual crown setup and rotating inner diver’s bezel. It isn’t. Real Super Compressor cases were produced by EPSA and featured a specialized proprietary water sealing design in addition to the iconic inner rotating bezel. Several companies in the 1960s and 1970s cashed in on the popularity of this design, and one of them was Accutron, who really did a bang up job.
