COMING AT YOU IS THIS TOTALLY TUBULAR LATE 60s DUGENA VALJOUX 7733 BIG-EYE DIVE CHRONOGRAPH IN NEAR MINT CONDITION.  

 

  • CASE: BEAUTIFUL CUSHION SHAPED SOLID STEEL CASE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.  MEASURING IN AT 41mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 44mm LUG TO LUG THIS SUCKER HAS SOME HEFT TO IT. NO SIGNS OF THE ORIGINAL FACTORY FINISH EVER HAVING BEEN POLISHED. THIS ONE MAINTAINS ALL IT ORIGINAL SHARP LINES WITH JUST SOME MINOR HAIRLINES PRESENT THROUGHOUT.  THAT MILITARY STYLE BLACK BLACK IS IN NEAR MINT CONDITION AND ROTATES BIDIRECTIONALLY WITH THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF FRICTION.

 

  • DIAL: THIS ONE IS TOTALLY BADASS. ITS THE PERFECT BALANCE OF MINIMALIST UTILITARIANISM WITH ITS SINGLE LINE OF TEXT AND LATE 60s FUNK. CHECK OUT THAT RAD BIG EYE SUBDIAL AND THAT PRISTINE MATTE BLACK DIAL FLANKED BY THAT PROMINENT PULSATIONS SCALE IN WHITE. SUCH GREAT CONTRAST. I LOVE THE POPS OF ORANGE WITH THAT LOLLIPOP CHRONO SWEEP HAND AND THAT SYRINGE STYLE MINUTE TOTALIZER. THIS ONE IS SUPER KICKASS.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS DIVER DUDE IS POWERED BY A VALJOUX 7733. ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME.  SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN BUT THIS ONE HAS BEEN RUNNING FLAWLESSLY OVER WEEKS OF OBSERVATION 

 

  • THIS TOOL DIVER IS MOUNTED ON A SEMI-MATTE THICK BRIDLE LEATHER  STRAP WHICH LOOKS UBER SPORTY.  THIS ONE IS A HARD FOR ME TO PART WITH BECAUSE IT'S JUST THAT AWESOME, BUT I CAN'T KEEP THEM ALL. WHAT A WATCH!!!!
