FOR SALE IS A PATINA QUEEN 1966 BULOVA-CARAVELLE 666FT SEA-HUNTER SKIN-DIVER SIGNED 4X AND JUST SERVICED 

 

  • CASE: SLEEK AND SEXY ALL-STEEL CASE MEASURING A NICE 37mm ACROSS BEZEL NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN BY 45mm LUG TO LUG. CASE IS IN EXCELLENT VINTAGE CONDITION WITH ALL THE ORIGINAL FACTORY FINISHES INTACT AND UNPOLISHED.  THERE ARE SOME SLIGHT DINGS AND SCRATCHES ON THE CASE SIDES, OVERALL THIS ONE IS IN PHENOMENAL SHAPE FOR A 53 YEAR OLD DIVER.  THIS IS ONE OF MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE DIVE CASES OF THE ERA WITH THOSE SWOOPY WIDE SHOULDERED LUGS THAT CURVE AROUND NICELY ON THE WRIST.  ROTATING BEZEL IS IN EXCELLENT SHAPE AND ROTATES WELL. 

 

  • DIAL: IF YOU LIKE A HEAVY DOSE OF PATINA ON YOUR DIVE DIALS, THIS IS YOUR BOY.  THIS FACE IS AGED TO PERFECTION.  I JUST LOVE THOSE BURNT OUT EXPLORER STYLE LUME MARKERS.  THIS IS THE MORE RARE EARLY RENDITION OF THE SEA-HUNTER DIAL WITH THE 3-LINED TEXT AND THAT KILLER DAUPHINE HANDSET.   ONE OF THE CLASSIC DIVE DIALS OF THE 60s.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS SEA-HUNTER RUNS ON THE BULLETPROOF JAPANESE MADE 11DP MOVEMENT WHICH RUNS BUTTER SMOOTH AND WAS JUST SERVICED.

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A SUPER COMFY COFFEE COLORED SUEDE STRAP WHICH LOOKS AWESOME WITH THE CAFE AU LAIT AGED TRITIUM.  THE SEA-HUNTER IS THE CROWN JEWEL OF THE CARAVELLE DEVIL-DIVER(666) LINE.  I LIKE TO COMPARE THESE TO THE TITUS CALYPSOMATIC DIVERS OF THE SAME ERA WHICH HAD A VERY SIMILAR CASE SIZE/SHAPE AND STYLE....HOWEVER, THOSE NOW ARE GOING FOR UP TO $2500 FOR GOOD EXAMPLES.  WITH THE INFLATION AND LIMITED AVAILABILITY OF WATCHES SUCH AS THE CALYPSOMATIC AND THE EARLY ROLEX SUBMARINERS, I SEE THE SEA-HUNTERS BECOMING A SOLID INVESTMENT AND FANTASTIC VALUE CONSIDERING THEIR DEVILISH STYLE AND ROCK-SOLID BUILD QUALITY.  THIS IS A SUPER FINE EXAMPLE OF ONE OF THE VINTAGE DIVE WATCH "MUST-HAVES"
