    Hi All,

    I picked up a Technos Skydiver a few months ago and would love to learn more about it. I've seen a few posted on the forums so I know they are out there. Thought I would start a thread and anyone can list photos of there's so we can document the different dials. I've seen many different dial configurations but nothing noting the differences. If this exists somewhere please point me to it!

    I know these Technos have a case and bezel identical to the Titus Calypsomatic, but besides that I don't know much.

    I've read that the first dials did not have a depth rating under the words 'sky diver'. Anyone know if this is true?

    And here's a photo of mine. Would love to see yours too!

    very similar to the one that I had, mine had the 500m depth rating.

    Cool watch!

    Yup, I got this off ebay a couple months back. Im really attracted to the aging of the dial on this one. Yours looks great too! Any idea what dates these are from? 60s I assume?

    That's a difficult question; the seller told me it's original to start with and when checking all kind of photo's online, it seems to be the same.

    These are I guess from somewhere mid sixtees. These watches are highly collectante and prices are on the rise lately.

    I have two sky divers; the 500m version and the 30 jewels version. The 500m version completely original and the 30 jewels version has not the original crown but I did find the correct crown! Only the stem is missing but hopefully that can be resolved soon.

    Great watches to have!

    Nice! Any side by side comparisons of the 2? Same case size I assume?

    I'm keen on getting one...I've seen with one with a helluva lot of crumbly lume...As there is a lot of this watch display, would it greatly affect the value to get it relumed properly?

    I think it would kill the value to relume it (even with vintage non-luminous colour).

    stabilise whatever remains is probably best to preserve it.

    once the lume is gone/degraded that's pretty much it for these styles of watches.
