YOU GOTTA LOVE THE SCUBA-DUDE ON THE CASE-BACK.
  • DIAL: HERE’S A DIAL WITH SOME SERIOUS ATTITUDE. CHECK OUT THAT GLOSS BLACK BACKGROUND WITH THAT WILD RED SEGMENT HOUSING THOSE FAT AGED TRITIUM MARKERS. IT LOOKS LIKE THERE WAS A TINY BIT OF REPAIR DONE AROUND 9, BUT OVERALL THIS IS IN STUNNING CONDITION. I LOVE THOSE WHITE LUME FILLED HANDS WHICH MAKE FOR EXCELLENT LEGIBILITY AGAINST THAT DARK DIAL. MY FAVORITE DESIGN ASPECT IS THAT SLOPING WHITE 24 HOUR RETAINING RING. SO MUCH TO LOOK AT, BUT IT ALL COMES TOGETHER BEAUTIFULLY. ALL TIED TOGETHER WITH THE CHERRY RED SWEEP SECONDS HAND.

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A SPORTY BIG HOLE TROPIC STYLE CHEAPESTNATOS RUBBER STRAP WHICH PAIRS NICELY. I CAN’T SAY THAT I KNOW MUCH ABOUT THIS BRAND, BUT LIKE MANY SMALL FRENCH WATCHMAKERS OF THE 60s AND 70s, IT’S CLEAR THAT THIS WATCH USES MANY OF THE SAME COMPONENTS SEEN IN YEMAS OF THE SAME TIME PERIOD(CASE/MOVEMENT). THE DIAL IS A PRETTY SPECTACULAR SPECIMEN OF FUNKY FRENCH 70s STYLE. THIS IS A GREAT EVERYDAY PIECE AND A TON OF FUN TO WEAR!
