Before purchasing a vintage timepiece, please see the FAQ page. 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A ROBUST DARK BLUE MINIMALIST STRAP WHICH TIES TOGETHER THE COLOR SCHEME BEAUTIFULLY. THERMIDOR WAS A SWISS BRAND THAT WAS MARKETED HEAVILY IN THE LATIN AMERICAN AND PORTUGUESE MARKETS AND CREATED SOME EXCELLENT DIVERS FOR THE TIME. THIS IS A ROBUST AND VERY WELL CONSTRUCTED VINTAGE DIVER WITH AWESOME PATINA AND A LARGE WRIST PRESENCE. THIS ONE REALLY HAS ALL THE GOODS.
