Cressi Dive Computers - Highest Workmanship From the Oldest Scuba Equipment Manufacturer in Europe






CRESSI dive computers are designed for sport-diving and with easiness of use and user-friendliness in mind. They cover broad range of diving scenarios. Whether you dive with Air or doing freediving - it is all within their grasp!

CRESSI was officially founded in 1946 in Genova, Italy, but actually started its operations in 1938, when brothers Egidio and Nanni Cressi started to handcraft the first scuba diving masks and spearfishing guns. And now this is an oldest manufacturer of scuba gear in Europe.

Starting from the beginning of its founding and progressing through out all of these years CRESSI continue the design and manufacture new models of scuba masks, fins, spearfishing guns, and it also brought to our diving community very new products, like regulators, optical masks, BCDs, and wetsuits.

In 2000 we saw CRESSI dive computers that came to our scubadiving market. And now we have following models from this Italian company: Visor, Archimede, Archimede 2, Edy II, Leonardo, and the latest computer for this moment - Giotto.

These models became very popular and wide-used in Europe, thanks to their reliability, easiness of use, and user-friendly features.
