Regular price $0.69 Sale

FOR SALE IS A MEGA GROOVY LARGE CASED EARLY 70s OLMA CARAVELLE 200 EPSA SUPERCOMPRESSOR DIVER

  • CASE: SHARP C-SHAPED ALL-STEEL COMPRESSOR CASE MADE BY EPSA IN NEAR MINT CONDITION MEASURING A ROBUST 42mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROSS-HATCHED CROWNS. 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 WHITE MILITARY STYLE STICK HANDS.  I DIG THOSE RAISED AND LUMED STEEL MARKERS WHICH LOOK TOTALLY BADASS. 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 ROULETTE ROTATING BEAUTY WITH THAT GROOVY COUNTDOWN TIMER. BEZEL ROTATES WITH THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF FRICTION BY TURNING THE TOP CROWN..
  • MOVEMENT: THIS OLMA RUNS ON A 25 JEWEL A.SCHILD AUTOMATIC. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN, BUT TIMEKEEPING IS SOLID. THIS ONE IS A STRONG RUNNER

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A 22MM BROWN LEATHER STRAP WHICH WEARS BOSS ON THIS BIG BOY. OLMA WAS A SWISS 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.
