I think Snorkel is the name Bulova used for all 666 ft. diver's models.

I think the Snorkel name is just Bulova's way of differentiating from other models/brands, like Rolex Submariner, Omega Seamaster, etc.

Marketing ploy.

We still have this one listed as "Snorkel", but matching ad Fifth linked in thread shows as Oceanographer.

With proof that Bulova called the 666 feet tested models "Snorkel". These two ads show this, calling them this within the first two lines.
