  • CASE: OVERSIZED AND SEXY ALL-STEEL CASE MEASURING A LARGE 42MM NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 47mm LUG TO LUG. THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE WEARING VINTAGE WATCHES. WITH THAT ASYMMETRICAL BENRUS TYPE 1 STYLE CASE, MASSIVE DIMENSIONS, AND GNARLY PROMINENT STEEL BEZEL, THIS THING TOTALLY SLAYS. NICE 60 CLICK UNI-DIRECTIONAL ACTION ON THE BEZEL OPERATES NICELY AND IS TOTALLY GRIPPY. CHECK OUT THAT AWESOME HELIUM RELEASE VALVE ON THE CASEBACK. THIS THING WEARS LIKE A DREAM AND WRAPS ERGONOMICALLY AROUND THE WRIST.

 

  • DIAL: SUPER COOL MATTE BLACK DIAL IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH APPLIED STEEL/LUME MARKERS LOOKING FRESH. I TOTALLY DIG THAT GLOSSY BLACK HANDSET WITH THE WHITE LUMED TIPS. THAT BRIGHT ORANGE PYLON SWEEP HAND ADDS A NICE PLAYFUL POP TO THE DIAL. CHECK OUT THAT RALLYE CHECKERED TREATMENT AROUND THE PERIPHERY OF THE DIAL. ALL VIEWED UNDER ONE OF THE BIGGEST/HIGHEST DOMED ACRYLIC CRYSTALS EVER MADE.....WHICH MAKES THIS THIG LOOK TOTALLY TRIPPY AND SCI-FI(AND ALSO MAKES IT A COMPLETE BEAR TO PHOTOGRAPH)

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS PIECE OF NAUTICAL EQUIPMENT RUNS ON A HIGH-GRADE 17 JEWEL SWISS FHF CALIBER 905 AUTOMATIC. QUICKSET DATE IS ACHIEVED ON THE SECOND STOP FOR THE CROWN. WATCH IS KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME AND RUNNING STRONG. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN BUT THIS ONE HAS BEEN BEHAVING WELL BOTH ON/OFF THE WRIST.   

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A THICK VINTAGE PERIOD APPROPRIATE "ALASKA" RUBBER DIVE STRAP WHICH ANCHORS THIS GUY TO THE WRIST COMFORTABLY.  THIS IS A TRUE DIVE WATCH LEGEND. ALONG WITH CLASSICS SUCH AS THE ZODIAC SUPER SEAWOLF, THE EARLY DOXA DIVERS, AND THE AQUADIVE BENTHOS, THE TYPHOON IS UP THERE AS ONE OF THOSE LATE 60s/EARLY 70s LARGE CASED FUNKY DIVERS MADE FOR REAL DEEP UNDERWATER EXPLORATION. THIS IS A NICE EXAMPLE READY FOR ACTION!
