Regular price $0.00 $0.69 Sale

FOR SALE IS A SUPER RAD MID 60s AURORE LUXE FRENCH SKIN-DIVER WITH SOME OF THE BEST DIAL PATINA I'VE SEEN. 

  • CASE: SLEEK AND SEXY OVERSIZED ALL-STEEL SKIN-DIVER CASE MEASURING A NICE 38mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 47.8 mm LUG TO LUG. CASE IS IN NICE VINTAGE CONDITION MAINTAINING ALL ITS ORIGINAL UNPOLISHED SHARP LINES. ROTATING BLACK BEZEL IS IN REALLY GREAT SHAPE WITH THE ORIGINAL LUME PIP INTACT. THIS ONE WEARS REALLY BIG DUE TO THE LONG LUG TO LUG LENGTH AND THE CHUNKY SKIN-DIVER CASE SHAPE.
  • DIAL: WOWZA, THIS DIAL IS SOMETHING SPECIAL. THIS MIGHT BE ONE OF THE BEST SKIN-DIVER DIALS I'VE EVER RUN ACROSS. CHECK OUT THAT GLOSS BLACK DIAL WITH THE COOL SUBSECONDS CROSS HAIRS AT 12. BUT REALLY, YOU'LL BE DRAWN IN BY THOSE MASSIVE ARABIC MILITARY STYLE TRITIUM NUMERALS WHICH DOMINATE THIS DIAL. THE LUME HAS SUCH A FANTASTIC CHARACTER TO IT WITH A NICE HINT OF PATINA AND SOME DARKENING IN SPOTS WHICH MAKES THIS OH-SO DREAMY. THE HANDSET IS A MILITARY WHITE TIPPED SYRINGE STYLE WHICH GIVES THIS ONE A COOL TACTICAL LOOK.
  • MOVEMENT: THIS SKIN-DIVER RUNS ON A 17 JEWEL FRENCH MANUAL WIND MOVEMENT.  IT RUNS BUTTER SMOOTH AND KEEPS EXCELLENT TIME. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN, BUT THIS ONE IS DEMONSTRATING STRONG AMPLITUDE ON THE TIMEGRAPHER.

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A VINTAGE SUB MOD DEP TROPIC STRAP WHICH WEARS GLORIOUSLY ON THIS FRENCH DIVER. THIS ONE HAS A LOT OF VINTAGE AWESOMENESS. FROM THAT LARGE ALL-STEEL SKIN-DIVER CASE TO THAT AMAZING PATINATED DIAL, THIS DIVER REALLY IS A BADASS.
