Regular price $0.00 $599.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A PARTICULARLY GROOVY LATE 60s/EARLY 70s AQUADIVE 20ATM 1939 DIVER WITH AMAZING BULLSEYE SCOTCHLITE DIAL AND STUNNING BAKELITE BEZEL.

  • CASE: SEXY SOLID STEEL OVAL/ELLIPSOID HOODED LUG CASE MEASURING A LARGE 39mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING SCREW-DOWN CROWN BY 47mm LUG TO LUG.  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 BLACK BEZEL WITH THE LUMED NUMERALS AND PIP. SUCH A COOL LOOK. BEZEL ROTATES WITH THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF FRICTION BIDIRECTIONALLY. 
  • DIAL: THIS HAS GOT TO BE ONE OF THE MOST GORGEOUS DIVER DIALS THAT I'VE SEEN. CHECK OUT THAT GLOSS BLACK FACE WITH SILVER CENTRAL RING FINISHED IN THAT STUNNING SCOTCHLITE FINISH WHICH HAS THAT SUBTLE POCKMARKED TEXTURE. THE DIAL IS IN NEAR MINT CONDITION MINUS A SMALL BLEMISH RIGHT ABOVE THE "20 ATM" TEXT. I LIKE THE HINT OF RED ON THE 12/6/9 MARKERS. THE THICK STEEL STICK HANDS ARE IN REALLY NICE SHAPE WITH THAT GNARLY PADDLE STYLE SWEEP SECONDS HAND.
  • MOVEMENT: THIS AWESOME DIVER  RUNS ON A HIGH-GRADE ETA 2783 AUTOMATIC. WATCH IS KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME AND RUNNING STRONG.  DATE FUNCTION IS QUICKSET. WATCH WAS ACQUIRED FROM A COLLECTOR WHO CLAIMS THIS WATCH WAS SERVICED IN 12/2018.

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A VERY SEXY AND COMFORTABLE VINTAGE KANGAROO STRAP FROM MY PERSONAL COLLECTION WHICH LOOKS THE BUSINESS ON THIS DIVER. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS ONE AND AM A BIT BUMMED TO BE PARTING WITH IT, BUT SUCH IS THE DILEMMA OF A VINTAGE WATCH PEDDLER. THIS IS ONE OF THE COOLER VINTAGE DIVERS I'VE HAD COME ACROSS MY DESK. IT'S SO BUBBLY AND SPACEY, LIKE IT SHOULD BE FROM A SCIENCE FICTION MOVIE. ONE OF THE BEST WEARING DIVERS OF THE ERA, AND THAT SCOTCHLITE BULLSEYE DIAL IS TO "DIVE" FOR.
