The Diver 100 was named “The Alpha-Male-Autavia’ by one of the guys On The Dash – because it’s ‘the scariest variant to own’. I don’t know if that’s true but it’s good fun!
The 11063 all used the Cal12 movement and whilst very similar to the 11630 their cases are squarer and their bezels are slightly different and unidirectional; they’re also not interchangeable with the 1163/11630.
According to Richard Crosthwaite and Paul Gavin The Diver 100 is thought to have been available with only two bezel variants; the Rolex-style as in this example and another ‘decomp’ METERS version. The dial for both comes with very unusual Mercedes-style hands and large raised circular lume hour plots.
