ANTIQUE DIVING HELMETS

Welcome to our selection of antique diving helmets and equipment. Antique diving helmets were known as "hats" or "hard hats". Siebe Gorman started developing their first diving helmet in the 1830's and by 1837 they had developed the surface supplied diving apparatus. This became known as the standard diver dress and was used by the British Royal Navy.
