Geoff  All oceanographers on site state such on dial (1969-1972).  These others all have 333 Feet on the dials too.  This 1973 is sans Oceanographer and is 666 Feet rating.  Wondering if it's a different watch?  Hang tag didn't say?  Did you get a bezel ring for it?

'OCEANOGRAPHER' would state 333' on the Dial.

strike my last comment.  Looks like there's an ocean full of these Oceanographers for which we don't have ads and/or watch examples w/ 666 Ft on the dials. 

Snorkel is subset of Oceanographer?   Circa 1969 ad below:
