For sale is this sought-after diver's watch, The BULOVA Snorkel, with 666 feet to its name. It has an aged dial but with clear markings, a ROTATING bezel & crystal/resin stud hours. This model was later renamed to BULOVA Oceanographer Snorkel to differentiate it from the earlier BULOVA Snorkel (which had a spartan steel bezel & case)
