Regular price $0.00 $750.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A MEGA GROOVY 1970 IAXA SEVEN SEAS SUPERCOMPRESSOR ON A SWISS TROPIC STRAP.

  • CASE: SHARP CUSHION  ALL-STEEL COMPRESSOR CASE MADE BY EPSA IN NEAR MINT CONDITION MEASURING A ROBUST 37.5mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROSS-HATCHED CROWNS BY 42mm LUG TO LUG.  CHECK OUT THE SHARP CHAMFERS AND ORIGINAL BRUSHED AND UNPOLISHED FINISH ON THE CASE TOP. SOME WEAR ON THE PRINT OF THE CASEBACK, BUT OVERALL THIS THING IS A PEACH
  • DIAL: BOLD AND BADASS DIVER DIAL IN SEMI-MATTE BLACK FINISH WITH WHITE PRINT. I LOVE THAT CUSTARDY AGED LUME WHICH MATCHES THE TRITIUM ON THOSE BLUNTED STEEL STICK HANDS.  I DIG THOSE WHITE/STEEL MARKERS WHICH ADD TO THAT 2-TONE THANG. THE RED SECONDS HAND IS A NICE TOUCH AND MATCHES WELL WITH THE RED ON THE INNER BEZEL. SPEAKING OF THAT, CHECK OUT THAT MAJESTIC CREAM COLORED ROTATING BEAUTY WITH THAT GROOVY FONT FOR THE NUMERALS. BEZEL ROTATES WITH THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF FRICTION BY TURNING THE TOP CROWN..
  • MOVEMENT: THIS IAXA  RUNS ON A HIGH BEAT 28800 17J ETA 2784 AUTOMATIC WHICH WINDS SMOOTHLY AND KEEPS GOOD TIME. DATE IS QUICKSET. MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THIS ONE WAS SERVICED WITHIN THE LAST 2 YEARS. THIS ONE IS A SOLID RUNNER

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A LARGE HOLE GENUINE 1960s SWISS MADE TROPIC SPORT WHICH COULD POSSIBLY BE THE ORIGINAL STRAP FOR THIS GUY.  IAXA WAS A BELGIUM BASED COMPANY WHICH MADE SOME PRETTY COOL DIVERS AND CHRONOS BACK IN THE 60s AND 70s. I LOVE THE VISUAL IMPACT OF THIS ONE, AND IT'S SUCH AN AWESOME AND WELL EXECUTED VINTAGE DIVER. EVERY COLLECTION NEEDS AN EPSA CASED SUPERCOMPRESSOR, AND THIS IS A TOTALLY RAD SPECIMEN.
