Regular price $0.00 $475.00 Sale

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS A VERY COOL LEGANT DIVER BASED ON THE SEIKO 6106-8589 "CHEVRON" SPORTS DIVER

  • CASE: ROBUST ALL-STEEL C-SHAPED DIVERS CASE IN EXCELLENT  CONDITION.  SHE MEASURES A POWERFUL 38mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN.  THIS ONE IS IN CLEAN AND UNPOLISHED PRESERVED CONDITION. THE ROTATING STEEL BEZEL IS IN GREAT CONDITION WITH JUST MINOR WABI-SABI HAIRLINE SCRATCHES. SUCH A GREAT WEARING PIECE. 
  • DIAL: SIMPLY STUNNING.  THIS SUNBURST BLUE DIAL IS A WORK OF ART. SOME GREAT SUBTLE TOUCHES ON THIS ONE SUCH AS THE LIGHTER BLUE MINUTE TRACK AND THE HASHMARKS IN WHITE. HOWEVER, IT'S ALL ABOUT THOSE HEAVY DUTY LUMED MARKERS WHICH GIVE THIS THE MONIKER THE "CHEVRON". THE AGED LUME MATCHES BEAUTIFULLY FROM THE HANDS TO THE DIAL. WHAT A LOOKER!
  • MOVEMENT: THIS CLASSIC IS POWERED BY A SEIKO BASED 17J AUTOMATIC WHICH IS KEEPING TIME AND ALL FUNCTIONS WORK GREAT. WATCH QUICKSETS WELL. I JUST HAD THIS ONE SERVICED AND IT'S A STRONG RUNNER.

THIS BADASS COMES MOUNTED ON A HANDSOME MINIMALIST GREY STRAP WHICH LOOKS SPORTY. LeGant WAS THE IN-HOUSE WATCH BRAND FOR THE MONTGOMERY WARD DEPARTMENT STORE CHAIN. LIKE THEIR COMPETITOR, SEARS, THEY WERE KNOWN TO PUT OUT SOME AWESOME OFFERINGS SUCH AS THIS CLASSIC MODEL. THE VINTAGE SEIKO CHEVRON DIVERS HAVE BECOME QUITE VALUABLE AND COLLECTIBLE, AND THIS ONE SHARES THE SAME DNA BUT WITH SOME SUBTLE TWISTS. DON'T LET THIS ONE SLIP THROUGH YOUR HANDS.
