stream air
US Divers DW "Stream Air". This is a one stage regulator and was made around 1957. Eventually the "Stream Air" name was dropped, and these models were simply called "Mistral".
DA Aqua-Master
The DA AquaMaster was introduced in 1958 and featured yellow hoses and a yellow mouthpiece. This was the first US Divers regulator with a hookah port, that allowed for surface supplied diving.
DA Aqua-Master
In 1959, the DA AquaMaster was sold with a black mouthpiece instead of yellow, but retained the yellow hoses. During the first few years of production, the DA's were not serialized.
DW Mistral
The US Divers DW Mistral was developed from the StreamAir, and introduced in 1958. It featured "Venturi Action", which greatly reduced breathing effort. The Mistrals were always easily identified by their bright yellow hoses.

Navy Type DA
US Divers Navy Type DA From 1956, this was the last year that the exhaust valve housing unscrewed from the upper case. The next model, the DA Aqua-Master, was much better breathing due to a revised lever and nozzle assembly.

Royal Aqua-Master
The US Divers Royal Aquamaster was the top of the line regulator for US Divers. It had a balanced first stage, and larger internal ports for better breathing at depths. Manufactured from 1964-1975.
Royal Aqua-Master
The US Divers Royal AquaMaster changed to a round adhesive label around 1970 and continued until US Divers discontinued the two hose regulator in 1975. The Royal was fully  balanced and was considered one of the finest breathing two hose regulators ever made.
