Wrist Watch Review

This is the first compressor-case dive watch I’ve had the opportunity to review, and though I’ve seen many compressor divers over the years (and even own one myself), I’d never taken the time to actually research the technology. It’s important to note that most compressor diver offerings these days are not true compressors, which is […]

My recent trip to Biel and Lengnau left me with countless impressions and a pile of great documents. Arguably the best catch was the bag full of Saturns, the corporate magazine for the employees of Enicar. It was handed to me by Ariste Racine, grandson of Enicar founder Ariste Racine Sr. and son of Ariste […]

My final week in Biel and Lengnau brought me everything I hoped for and more. When I planned this trip roughly a year ago, I aimed for two or three interviews with people connected to Enicar and maybe some documents as a bonus. I got seven great interview sessions and a pile of photos, brochures […]
