FOR SALE IS A SUPER COOL EARLY 60s CLEBAR SKIN-DIVER WITH LOVELY SNOWFLAKE STYLE HANDSET AND EXCELLENT PATINA. JUST BACK FROM A FULL SERVICE

 

  • CASE: CLASSIC EARLY 60s SKIN DIVER CASE MEASURING 35.5mm NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 43mm. THIS ALL STEEL CASE WAS A POPULAR STYLE USED IN DIVE WATCHES BACK IN THE LATE 50s AND EARLY 60s AND IS ONE OF MY FAVS. THAT BEZEL DOES SHOW SOME UNIFORM WEAR THROUGHOUT WHICH GIVES THIS ONE A WORN-IN VINTAGE VIBE. THIS ONE WEARS VERY SIMILARLY TO THE EARLY ZODIAC SEAWOLFS AND BULOVA SNORKELS OF THE ERA. 

 

  • DIAL: YOU GOTTA SEE THIS ONE IN PERSON TO REALLY APPRECIATE HOW AMAZING IT IS. CHECK OUT THAT GLOSS BLACK DIAL WITH SOME MINOR SIGNS OF AGE SPOTS AND A BIT OF TEXT LOSS BUT OVERALL LOOKING TOTALLY BOSS. THE AGED TRITIUM LOOKS FANTASTIC WITH THAT BAKED COOKIE COLORED LUME BOTH CONSISTENT ON THE THE LUME PLOTS AND THE HANDSET. TALKING OF HANDSETS....THIS ONE IS UNBELIEVABLE. CHECK OUT THAT SNOWFLAKE STYLE HOUR HAND AND THAT LUMED LOLLIPOP SWEEP SECONDS HAND. TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL. THIS DIAL HAS A NO-NONSENSE MILITARY VIBE TO IT. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS DIVER RUNS ON A 25 JEWEL HIGH GRADE FELSA AUTOMATIC WHICH WAS JUST SERVICED. THIS THING IS RUNNING LIKE A PEACH.

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A VINTAGE GENUINE MOD DEP ITALIAN MADE "SUB" RUBBER STRAP WHICH IS SUPER SUPPLE AND WEARS LIKE A DREAM. IN MY OPINON, THIS DIVER HAS IT ALL: GLOSS DIAL, KILLER LUME, SNOWFLAKE HANDS, AND A LEGENDARY MOVEMENT.  IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THAT VINTAGE TUDOR LOOK BUT ARE NOT WILLING TO PAY 5K+, THIS CLEBAR HAS ALL THE RIGHT MOVES.
