  • CASE: SEXY SOLID STEEL OVAL/ELLIPSOID HOODED LUG CASE MEASURING A LARGE 38.2mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING SCREW-DOWN CROWN.  CASE IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION MAINTAINING ITS NICE BRUSHED TOP. I LOVE THE WAY THIS CASE CURVES AROUND THE WRIST WITH ITS ERGONOMIC SPACEAGE DESIGN. CHECK OUT THAT GROOVY BAKELITE BEZEL WITH THAT FUNKY 2-TONE WHITE/NAVY COLOR SCHEME. SUCH A COOL LOOK. BEZEL ROTATES WITH THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF FRICTION BIDIRECTIONALLY.

WATCH COMES MOUNTED ON A PERIOD APPROPRIATE ALL STEEL BRACELET WHICH LOOKS RAD ON THIS PSYCHEDELIC DIVER. BRACELET CAN ACCOMODATE UP TO A 7.75” WRIST. THIS ONE LOOKS ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC WITH ITS BAKELITE BEZEL, FUNKY COLOR SCHEME, AND THAT SPACY ELLIPSOID CASE. THIS LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING THAT ONE OF COUSTEAU’S CREW MEMBERS COULD HAVE BEEN WEARING ABOARD THE CALYPSO
