FOR SALE IS A TRIPPY EARLY 60s ERIDAS SKIN-DIVER AUTOMATIC WITH SOME OF THE CRAZIEST TROPICAL DIAL PATINA YOU'VE EVER SEEN.

  • CASE: CLASSIC ALL-STEEL SKIN-DIVER CASE MEASURING 36mm ACROSS BEZEL NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN BY 43mm LUG TO LUG.   CHECK OUT THOSE SHARP AND UNPOLISHED CHAMFERED LUGS.  I LOVE THAT BLACK BEZEL WITH SILVER PRINT WHICH HAS A VERY STEALTHY APPEARANCE. .
  • DIAL: THIS TROPICAL DIAL LOOKS LIKE IT SURVIVED A NUCLEAR EXPLOSION. WHAT MOST LIKELY BEGAN AS A GLOSS BLACK DIAL HAS TURNED A CHOCOLATE BROWN AT THE CENTER MORPHING TO A GOLDEN TONE TOWARDS THE PERIPHERY. CHECK OUT THOSE PROMINENT RADIUM LUME FILLED MARKERS WITH THAT COFFEE COLORED PATINA WHICH MATCHES THAT ON THE HANDS. SUCH A RICH AND WARM DIAL. ORIGINAL CRYSTAL IS IN GREAT SHAPE WITH A FAIRLY SHALLOW ABRASION ABOVE THE 5 MARKER. YOU GOTTA LOVE THAT INTERNAL CYCLOPS OVER THAT KILLER RED DATE WHEEL.
  • MOVEMENT: THIS ERIDAS RUNS ON A HIGH GRADE 25 JEWEL ETA 2452 AUTOMATIC.  SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN, BUT WATCH HAS BEEN RUNNING EXCELLENTLY OBSERVED OVER A WEEK OF ON/OFF WRIST OBSERVATION.  

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON AN OLD SCHOOL VINTAGE TRACO SPORT BROWN BIG HOLE TROPIC . THE STRAP WORKS AMAZINGLY WITH THE BROWN TONES OF THE DIAL. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING THAT'S REALLY SPECIAL, THIS IS IT. WITH ITS SLEEK LINES, LOW PROFILE, AND WILD DIAL, THIS OLD SKIN DIVER IS A TOTAL PARTY ANIMAL!
