Purchased from the Original Owner who was a Diver for Mel Fisher for 9 years. There were a handful of Divers in the water the day that “The Atocha Motherlode” was discovered. This Diver was one of those few. Those few Divers in the water that day are known as the “Golden Crew”. This “Golden Crew” Diver has kept an Overwhelming amount of Complete and Accurate Documentation through the entire History of this watch.

It is Extremely likely this Submariner is the Only One in the World that can be verified as to its Significance and Use in the initial Discovery and Recovery of the Historical and “Massive” Atocha Treasure.

Included also is the Authentic Atocha "Pieces of Eight" Real (pronounced REE-AL) Coin that was given to him by Mel Fisher himself. Currently a "Pieces of Eight" Atocha Coin is valued at about $4,000.

Size guide for wristbands

1 | Lug width

The lug width is the width of the strap at the end that is attached to the watch. This is the interior distance between the two lugs (horn-like protrusions) on the watch casing. The strap will fit your watch only if the lug width of the watch is the same width as the strap.

2 | Buckle width

The buckle width is the width of the strap at the buckle end. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the width of the original buckle must be identical to the strap width. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.

3 | Strap length

The strap length is the combined length of the short strap side 3A (without buckle) and the long strap side 3B. For metal straps, the length of the strap including the clasp is measured in the closed position.

4 | Strap thickness

Strap thickness is the height of the strap. Many leather straps thin out towards the buckle end, or “taper”. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the strap thickness must match the height of the original buckle. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.
