FOR SALE IS A PATINA-PERFECT MID 60s NILEG SKIN-DIVER AUTOMATIC IN SHARP CONDITION.

  • CASE: SHARP ALL-STEEL SKIN-DIVER CASE MEASURING A LARGE 37.5mm ACROSS BEZEL NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN.  ALL THE ORIGINAL BRUSHED FINISH IS FULLY INTACT AND LUGS ARE SHARP. THE SHOW-STOPPER IS THAT AGED FADED BEZEL WHICH HAS TAKEN ON A GHOSTY CORAL COLOR.  IT ROTATES WITH THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF FRICTION BIDIRECTIONALLY. 
  • DIAL: THIS DIAL REALLY PULLS AT MY HEART STRINGS. REALLY A FAR-OUT AND UNIQUE DESIGN WHICH I’VE NEVER SEEN ON ANOTHER SKIN-DIVER. I LOVE THAT GORGEOUS SILVER BACKGROUND WITH THAT INSET 24 HOUR SCALE. CHECKOUT THAT LUSCIOUS AGED TRITIUM ON THOSE EXPLORER STYLE NUMERALS. SUCH A COOL LOOK. THE LUME MATCHES NICELY WITH THAT ON THOSE AWESOME LADDER STYLE DIVER HANDS. THAT LUMED ARROW SWEEP HAND IS A NICE TOUCH.
  • MOVEMENT: THIS NILEG RUNS ON A HIGH GRADE ETA 25 JEWEL AUTOMATIC.  SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN, BUT WATCH HAS BEEN RUNNING EXCELLENTLY OBSERVED OVER A WEEK OF ON/OFF WRIST OBSERVATION. KEEPS GOOD TIME WITH VERY STRONG AMPLITUDE ON THE TIMEGRAPHER

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A SUPPLE TAN STRAP WHICH MATES BEAUTIFULLY WITH THAT DIAL PATINA.  IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING THAT'S REALLY SPECIAL, THIS IS IT. THIS PARTICULAR SKIN-DIVER CASE IS SLEEK AND ELEGANT AND WEARS EVEN LARGER THAN ITS DIMENSIONS WOULD SUGGEST WITH ITS CHUNKY LUGS AND THIN BEZEL(ALL DIAL). THIS IS A GREAT CASUAL VINTAGE DIVER WITH SOME LOVELY PATINA AND DASHING GOOD LOOKS.
