Regular price $499.99 Sale

FOR SALE IS GROOVY AND COLORFUL RED  COMPOSITE CASED EDOX BAHAMAS DIVE WATCH FROM THE EARLY 70s

 

  • CASE:  NEAR MINT ELMO RED COMPOSITE CASE  MEASURING A LARGE 38.3mm ACROSS CASE NOT COUNTING ORIGINAL CROWN. I LOVE THAT BRILLIANT BLUE 12 HOUR GMT BEZEL. SO MUCH FUN

 

  • DIAL: REALLY STUNNING SUNBURST DARK GREY DIAL IN GREAT SHAPE WITH A TOUCH OF PATINA. CHECK OUT THOSE TOWERING APPLIED BLACK MARKERS WITH LUMED SLIVERS.  REALLY A COOL 3-D EFFECT.  I LOVE THOSE THICK WHITE STICK HANDS WHICH ADD A NICE TOUCH OF LEGIBILITY AND CONTRAST WITH THAT DARK DIAL.  

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS BAHAMA-MAMA RUNS ON A 17J SWISS MANUAL WINDER.  SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN. WATCH HAS BEEN WINDING SMOOTHLY, KEEPING GOOD TIME, AND DATE FLIPS APPROPIATELY. 

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A TROPIC STYLE RUBBER STRAP WHICH PAIRS NICELY.  IN THE LATE 60s, YOU SAW A HANDFUL OF SWISS COMPANIES PUT OUT SIMILAR WATCHES WITH THESE COMPOSITE CASES AND INTERCHANGEABLE BEZELS.  TISSOT HAD THE "CAROUSEL" LINE AND FORTIS THE "FLIPPER".  I'VE NEVER RUN ACROSS THIS PARTICULAR MODEL BEFORE, BUT IT DEFINITELY IS AS RETRO AND WILD AS THEY COME.
