I don't think I totally understand your question.
The only one of those watches with which I am familiar is the Snorkel 666. I have seen a number of them on ebay. I don't have one but they are similar to my DeepSea 666.

Occasionally, you can find Oceanographers on Ebay. But usually I see 333 ft versions.

The others may be rarer or I just don't see them.

Another solution would be find a member here that lives in Italy and will negotiate for you on the two there you were asking about.

Good luck!

Earlier this year I picked up a Bulova "666" similar to the one pictured. These can be found with patience and persistence. That being said, most of the ones I have seen have been well used, probably for their intended purpose and show a lot of wear and tear. Movements and movement parts are easy to source, as other Bulova watches used this movement. Case parts are virtually non-existent, especially bezels, so the challenge lies in sourcing these parts. While they are nice watches, I don't follow the high pricing on them as they had a fairly mainstream movement inside of a waterproof case. It did not have a screw down crown, so I suspect many succumbed when the crown gasket went bad. Mine is waiting in the que to go to the watchmaker for a COA and perhaps new crystal if one can be found.
