FOR SALE IS THE LEGENDARY FRENCH MITCHELL “SAINT MOBI-DYCK” DIVE WATCH WITH KILLER LUME AND GLORIOUS GLOSS DIAL .

 

  • CASE: LARGE CHROMED CASE MEASURING A HEALTHY 37mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING CROWN.  CASE IS IN EXCELLENT AND UNPOLISHED CONDITION WITH SOME WEAR ON THE CASEBACK. WITH THAT WIDE DIAL AND THIN BEZEL, THIS ONE REALLY WEARS PHENOMENAL.

 

  • DIAL:  THIS IS REALLY SPECTACULAR. CHECK OUT THAT GLOSS BLACK DIAL WITH THOSE LARGE AND IN CHARGE LUMED MARKERS. I LOVE THE CUSTARDY TONE OF THE LUME WHICH MATCHES NICELY WITH THAT ON THOSE GLADIATOR STYLE SWORD HANDS. THAT MIXTURE OF INKY BLACK GLOSS MIXED WITH ALL THAT HEAVY DUTY LUME IS ABSOLUTELY MIND MELTING. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS DIVER RUNS ON A 17 JEWEL FRENCH MADE MANUAL WINDER.  IT RUNS BUTTER SMOOTH AND KEEPS GOOD TIME. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN, BUT THIS ONE HAS BEEN RUNNING STRONG FOR DAYS OF ON/OFF WRIST OBSERVATION AS WELL AS DEMONSTRATES SOLID AMPLITUDE READINGS ON THE TIMEGRAPHER.
  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A VINTAGE SWISS TROPIC WHICH MAY EVEN BE ORIGINAL TO THE WATCH. STRAP HAS A TEAR TOWARDS THE BUCKLE WHICH COULD BE GLUED TO STABILIZE. I WILL LEAVE THAT TO THE BUYER TO ADDRESS . I JUST ABSOLUTELY LOVE WEARING THIS ONE. SUCH A BOLD DESIGN WITH A TON OF WRIST PRESENCE.  FOR THOSE IN THE KNOW, THESE MITCHELL DIVERS MADE BY THE SAINT MOBI-DYCK COMPANY ARE ABSOLUTE ICONS AMONGST VINTAGE DIVE WATCH COLLECTORS. THESE RARELY POP UP, AND WHEN THEY DO, THEY ARE OFTEN WELL OVER 2K. THIS IS A CLEAN EXAMPLE READY FOR SOME HARPOONING
