Regular price $0.00 $499.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A PARTICULARLY GROOVY 70s PRONTO 300 METER DIVE WATCH WITH COOL COKE BAKELITE BEZEL. RECENTLY SERVICED.

 

  • CASE: SEXY SOLID STEEL HOODED LUG CASE MEASURING A LARGE 40mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 44mm LUG TO LUG.  CASE IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION MAINTAING ITS NICE BRUSHED TOP. THIS IS VERY REMINISCENT OF THE EPSA CASES OF THE 70s MADE FOR THE ZODIAC SUPER SEAWOLF WITH THE RETAINING NUT AND THE BIDIRECTIONAL CLICKING BEZEL WHICH IS ENGAGED BY PUSHING DOWN AND ROTATING. THAT COKE BAKELITE BEZEL IS SUPER COOL AND IN NICE SHAPE. 

 

  • DIAL: THIS IS SUCH A FANTASTIC CONFLUENCE OF DESIGN AND COLORS ON THIS GROOVY DIVE DIAL. I'M A HUGE FAN OF THAT BLACK DIAL WITH THAT PROMINENT RALLYE STYLE WHITE MINUTE TRACK AROUND THE PERIPHERY. THAT PLONGEUR STYLE WHITE/RED HAND COMBO IS JUST TOO COOL AND MATCHES SO WELL WITH THE COKE BEZEL AND THAT WHITE TRACK ON THE DIAL. THE LUME PLOTS SHOW JUST THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF PATINA AND MATES AWESOMELY WITH THE TRITIUM PATINA ON THE HANDS. THE GROOVE COMES INTO PLAY, HOWEVER, WITH THAT FUNKY STACKED DAY/DATE WINDOW AT 6.......IN SPANISH, TO BOOT!!! CRYSTAL IS A REPLACEMENT AS THE ORIGINAL WAS MOST LIKELY A FLAT GLASS ONE, BUT I DO LOVE A GOOD DOMED PLEXI, AND IT LOOKS MEGA COOL ON THIS DIVER.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS AWESOME DIVER  RUNS ON A HIGH-GRADE ETA AUTOMATIC. WATCH IS KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME AND RUNNING STRONG.  DATE FUNCTION IS QUICKSE, BUT DAY(DAY OF THE WEEK) IS NOT. THIS WATCH WAS SERVICED IN 6/2018 AND IS RUNNING GREAT.

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A VERY SEXY AND COMFORTABLE MINIMALIST HAND MADE STRAP BY RUEWATCHES WHICH ADDS A VERY COSMOPOLITAN FLAIR TO THIS 70s BRUTE. I ABSOLUTELY ADORE THIS ONE. THIS PULLS TOGETHER ALL THE GREAT DESIGN ELEMENTS OF VARIOUS CLASSIC 70s DIVERS INTO A COOL AND COMPREHENSIVE PACKAGE. I'VE NEVER SEEN ONE QUITE LIKE THIS. IF YOU ARE LONGING FOR A SQUALE STYLE DIVER WITH SOME RAD BAKELITE ACTION, THIS IS A NICE OPTION...MINUS THE VINTAGE SQUALE PRICE-TAG AND PLUS THE BRAVADO.
