Does anyone remember a short sci-fi story about a time traveling submarine?

I read a story many years ago and I’ve always remembered a few main points:
*There is a time traveling submarine.
*It wasn't a military submarine, but a bathysphere or a submersible like Alvin.
*Inside the submarine were a few scientists, perhaps only two.
*There was as least one other person who stayed behind to witness the time travel.
*The submarine traveled back in time, but instantly reappeared.
*When the person witnessing the event opened the submarine door, the two scientists were long dead.
*The scientists used a welding touch to burn a message into the metal of the submarine to make sure it didn’t disintegrate.
Does this sound familiar? Can anyone point me to this story?
