TOUGH~70s DUVAL “SUPER-PH” 1000M DIVER

TOUGH~70s DUVAL “SUPER-PH” 1000M DIVER

Regular price $1,249.99 Sale

FOR SALE IS A SPECTACULAR SHARP EARLY 70s DUVAL 1000M DIVER UTILIZING A SIMILAR “VOLCANO” CASE AS THE CERTINA PH 1000M WATCHES.

 

  • CASE: HEAVY DUTY ROBUST ALL SOLID STEEL CASE MEASURING A TUBBY 42.5mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING SCREW-DOWN CROWN.  THESE ARE SERIOUSLY HARDCORE WITH THAT TOWERING HEIGHT(16.5mm) AND THE HEAVY DUTY CONSTRUCTION. YOU GOTTA DIG THAT GORGEOUS BAKELITE BLUE ROTATING BEZEL WITH 60 CLICK BI-DIRECTIONAL ACTION. 

 

  • DIAL: EARLY 70s FUNK AT ITS BEST. REALLY HANDSOME CRAYOLA BLUE DIAL MAKES THIS DIAL POP ON THE WRIST. I LOVE THOSE CHUNKY APPLIED STEEL MARKERS WHICH GIVE THIS DIAL SOME SOLID DEPTH. CHECK OUT THAT GROOVY STEEL STICK HANDSET WITH NICELY PRESERVED TRITIUM WHICH MATCHES NICELY WITH THAT ON THOSE MARKERS. THE TRAFFIC CONE ORANGE ACCENTS REALLY ADD SOME PLAYFUL POPS OF COLOR MATED TO THE COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF BLUE.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS DUVAL RUNS ON A HI GRADE ETA AUTOMATIC. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN ON THIS ONE, BUT IT'S BEEN RUNNING LIKE AN ABSOLUTE PEACH FOR ME OBSERVED OVER DAYS BOTH ON AND OFF THE WRIST.

THIS DIVER COMES ON A VINTAGE 20mm BLUE PERIOD APPROPRIATE TROPIC STYLE STRAP WHICH REALLY SNAPS WITH THAT BRILLIANT BLUE DIAL AND BEZEL. THIS IS A REALLY THE ULTIMATE TOOL WATCH HOUSED IN AN ABSOLUTE TANK OF CASE. THIS THING IS AN ABSOLUTE BLAST TO WEAR.
