FOR SALE IS A SUPER CLEAN AND DASHINGLY HANDSOME WALTHAM SKIN-DIVER IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. RECENTLY SERVICED.

 

  • CASE: SLEEK AND SEXY ALL-STEEL CASE MEASURING A NICE 36mm ACROSS BEZEL NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN BY 43mm LUG TO LUG. CASE IS IN REALLY NICE CONDITION WITH SOME MINOR HAIRLINES THROUGHOUT. CHECK OUT THOSE SUPER SHARP AND EDGY FACETED LUGS. THE ROTATING FRICTION BEZEL IS A PERIOD APPROPRIATE REPLACEMENT AND IS THAT KILLER NIVADA STYLE MIL-DIVER DOUBLE SCALE TYPE. I LOVE THE LOW-SLUNG AND THIN PROFILE OF THIS PIECE WHICH GIVES IT A NICE DRESSY FEEL.

 

  • DIAL: THIS DIAL IS SERIOUSLY SUBLIME. THE DARK SLATE GREY BACKGROUND IS EXTRA CLASSY, AND I LOVE THOSE COOL FACETED STEEL MARKERS. THE LUME SLIVERS HAVE TAKEN ON A SUBTLE AGED PATINA WHICH PERFECTLY MATCH THE TRITIUM ON THOSE CLEAN STICK HANDS. I LOVE THAT TEXTURED LINEN SEGMENT THAT RUNS THROUGH THE DIAL WHICH GIVES THIS FACE SOME ADDED DEPTH. I DIG THAT RALLYE DESIGN ABOVE THE MINUTE TRACK AND THAT ORANGE SWEEPER HAND WHICH ADDS A NICE POP OF COLOR. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS WALTHAM RUNS ON A BULLETPROOF SWISS 17JEWEL A.SCHILD MANUAL WINDER.THIS ONE HAS BEEN RECENTLY SERVICED AND IS RUNNING LIKE A CHAMP.

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A SEXY PERIOD APPROPRIATE JB CHAMPION BRACELET WITH BLACK INSERTS WHICH IS A TOTAL KNOCKOUT OF A COMBO ON THIS SKIN-DIVER.  THESE WALTHAMS ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE DIVERS OF THE ERA. THEY HAVE A NICE UNDERSTATED SOPHISTICATION AND REALLY CAN GO FROM BEING A DRESS DIVER TO A WEEKEND WARRIOR.
