COMING AT YOU IS THIS STUDLY HEAVY DUTY SHEFFIELD DIVE CHRONOGRAPH WITH THE FAMED LANDERON 189(HEUER DATO). FRESHLY SERVICED AND READY TO KICK-ASS. SIGNED 3X

 

  • CASE: LARGE CHROMED CASE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.   THIS GUY MEASURES A LARGE 40.5mm ACROSS BEZEL NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 46.5mm LUG TO LUG.   THIS IS THE EXACT CASE USED IN MANY OF THE NIVADA/CROTON AVIATOR CHRONOMASTERS AND WITTNAUER PROFESSIONAL DIVE CHRONOS OF THE ERA, EXCEPT THIS IS A CHROME PLATED VARIANT. CASE IS IN VERY SHARP SHAPE WITH NO SIGNS OF WEAR, BUT I WILL POINT OUT THERE'S A SIZABLE DENT ON THE SIDE OF THE TOP RIGHT LUG WITH A SLIGHT BIT OF CHROME LOSS. I'D SAY IT'S PRETTY INCONSPICUOUS ON THE WRIST AS IT'S TOWARDS THE BOTTOM OF THE LUG, AND YOU CAN'T SEE IT WHEN ON THE WRIST. THE REST OF THE CASE MAINTAINS ITS SHARP EDGES AND FACETS. BLACK BEZEL IS IN EXCELLENT SHAPE AND HAS A NICE SHINE TO IT.  THE FRICTION ON THE BEZEL IS REALLY A TREAT TO OPERATE AND ROTATES SMOOTHLY.  THIS THING REALLY WEARS VERY LARGE AND MODERN ON THE WRIST.

 

  • DIAL: THIS DIAL IS REALLY SOMETHING SPECTACULAR.  IT'S SPORTY YET VERY ELEGANT WITH THOSE APPLIED STEEL STICK MARKERS AND THE SOLO "6" ARABIC NUMERAL.  I LOVE THAT SUNBURST GREY DIAL WHICH LOOKS FANTASTIC IN ALL LIGHTING CONDITIONS BUT COMES TO LIFE IN THE FULL SUN(SEE WRIST SHOT PIC). I REALLY DIG THOSE SILVER SUBDIALS WHICH POP AGAINST THE DARK GREY BACKGROUND. I LOVE THE CHERRY RED SWEEP CHRONO HAND WHICH IS A NICE SUBTLE TOUCH. THE CENTERPIECE OF THIS WATCH IS THAT DATE WINDOW AT 12, AND IT LOOKS SO COOL MAGNIFIED UNDER THE INTEGRATED CYCLOPS IN THE CRYSTAL. CRYSTAL IS ORIGINAL AND IS IN GOOD OVERALL CONDITION, AND THERE IS A SLIGHT DING AT THE 10 MARKER. 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS MACHO DIVE CHRONO IS POWERED BY A SWISS 17J LANDERON 189.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME. MY WATCHMAKER FULLY SERVICED THIS ONE ON 3/05/2018. 

 

  • THIS FELLA IS MOUNTED ON A NATURAL COLORED HANDMADE STRAP WHICH REALLY BRINGS OUT THE SPRING/SUMMER VIBES OF THIS ONE. THERE'S A LOT TO LOVE ABOUT THIS VINTAGE SHEFFIELD DIVE CHRONO. IT USES A CASE STYLE FOUND IN MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE AND COLLECTIBLE MODELS. IT USES THE FAMED LANDERON 189 WHICH IS FOUND IN SOME PRETTY SEMINAL HEUER MODELS. MOST IMPORTANTLY....IT'S COOL AS HELL AND STRAIGHT-UP SEXY.
