VIETNAM ERA~BENRUS 666 ULTRA-DEEP

Regular price $650.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A SPECTACULAR VIETNAM ERA BENRUS ULTRA-DEEP DIVER WITH SOME RUGGED GOOD LOOKS 

  • CASE:  SUPER BOSS TURTLE STYLE ALL STEEL CASE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.  WATCH MEASURES A LARGE 40.8mm ACROSS CASE NOT COUNTING CROWN BY 44mm LUG TO LUG.   CHECK OUT THAT GORGEOUS ALL STEEL BEZEL WITH BLACK ENAMEL MARKINGS WHICH GIVES THIS A CLEAN AND NO-BULLSHIT LOOK. THIS CASE MAY LOOK FAMILIAR, AS IT’S THE SAME ONE USED BY BULOVA FOR THEIR 666 SNORKEL OCEANOGRAPHER.

 

  • DIAL: THIS IS A CLASSIC AND TOTALLY BOSS DIVER LAYOUT WHICH IS BOTH HIGHLY LEGIBLE YET PLEASING TO THE EYE. WITH THE MATTE BLACK DIAL, THOSE SUBTLE CROSS-HAIRS, AND THOSE WHITE HANDS, THIS FACE IS ALL BUSINESS. THE ORIGINAL HI-DOME CRYSTAL WITH INTERNAL CYCLOPS IS A NICE TOUCH. CRYSTAL DOES HAVE VERY MINOR CRAZING SEEN IN SOME ANGLES BUT YOU REALLY HAVE TO BE LOOKING FOR IT. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS DUDE  RUNS ON A HIGH-GRADE BENRUS SIGNED ETA BASED AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT. EVERYTHING IS WORKING FANTASTIC ON THIS ONE. DATE IS SEMI-QUICKSET.  SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN ON THIS ONE, BUT IT’S BEEN SOLID RUNNER OVER WEEKS OF OBSERVATION.

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A GROOVY “BRANDO” STYLE RUBBER STRAP WHICH GIVES THIS A VIETNAM ERA VIBE.  LIKE THE BULOVA 666 DIVERS, THE BENRUS ULTRA-DEEP LINE OF WATCHES  HAVE BECOME CLASSIC COLLECTIBLES OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS DUE TO THEIR WICKED COOL ATTITUDE, BULLETPROOF BUILD QUALITY, AND GROOVY DESIGNS.  IF YOU ASK ME, THE ULTRA-DEEPS ARE MUCH MORE RARE COMPARED TO THE BULOVA DEVILS. AT 41mm, THIS CLASSIC VINTAGE MODEL WEARS LIKE AN ABSOLUTE DREAM. THESE ARE GETTING HARD TO FIND IN GOOD CONDITION. THIS IS YOUR SUMMER CLASSIC RIGHT HERE WAITING FOR YOU TO PULL THE TRIGGER.
