  • CASE: HEAVY DUTY SOLID STEEL CASE MEASURING A ROBUST 37.5mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 45mm LUG TO LUG.  THE FACTORY BRUSHED FINISHING ON THIS MINT CONDITION CASE IS TOP-SHELF.  THIS CASE IS SUPER SHARP, AND I LOVE THAT INTEGRATED BRACELET WHICH MAKES THIS THING WEAR LIKE A CUFF. DESPITE ITS SLIM PROPORTIONS, THIS ONE WEARS QUITE LARGE AND HAS SOME SERIOUS HEFT TO IT. CHECK OUT THAT KILLER ROTATING BLUE BAKELITE BEZEL IN TREMENDOUSLY NICE CONDITION. THIS ONE JUST HAS A LOT OF COOL AND INTERESTING CHAMFERS AND FUNKY LINES WHICH MAKE IT AN ABSOLUTE PARTY ON THE WRIST.   

 

  • DIAL: 70s FUNK AT ITS BEST. REALLY HANDSOME MATTE CRAYOLA BLUE DIAL WITH SOME COOL RALLYE TREATMENT ON THE PERIPHERY. I LOVE THOSE CHUNKY APPLIED STEEL MARKERS WHICH GIVE THIS DIAL SOME SOLID DEPTH. CHECK OUT THAT GROOVY STEEL STICK HANDSET WITH NICELY PRESERVED TRITIUM. THAT TANGERINE SWEEP HAND REALLY LOOKS FANTASTIC MATCHED AGAINST THAT BLUE DIAL. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS IMADO RUNS ON A HI GRADE 21 JEWEL A.SCHILD AUTOMATIC WITH QUICKSET DAY AND DATE. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN ON THIS ONE, BUT IT'S BEEN RUNNING LIKE AN ABSOLUTE PEACH FOR ME OBSERVED OVER DAYS BOTH ON AND OFF THE WRIST.

THIS DIVER COMES ON ITS ORIGINAL INTEGRATED OYSTER STYLE STAINLESS STEEL BRACELET WITH SIGNED IMADO CLASP WHICH IS CURRENTLY SIZED FOR MY 6.75" WRIST WITH 6 ADDITIONAL MICRO-ADJUSTS.  THIS BRACELET IS ALSO IN QUITE MINTY CONDITION.  THIS IMADO IS STRAIGHT UP DISCO INFERNO.  THERE'S NO OTHER WAY TO DESCRIBE IT.  THIS WATCH IS AS 70s AS THEY COME AND HAS SOME SERIOUS WRIST PRESENCE TO IT.
