COMING AT YOU IS A CRAZY COOL 1970 BULOVA DEEP "A" CHRONOGRAPH IN NEAR MINT CONDITION AND SERVICED IN 11/2016.

  • CASE: HEFTY C-SHAPED BULOVA "A" DIVER CASE IN PRETTY DAMN NEAR MINT CONDITION.   THIS GUY MEASURES A LARGE 38mm ACROSS BEZEL NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN BY 45mm LUG TO LUG. THIS THING IS REALLY SHARP MAINTAINING ITS ORIGINAL FACTORY BRUSHING THROUGHOUT AND SHARP EDGES. JUST THE TINIEST HINT OF EVEN GHOST FADE ON THAT GREY/BLUE BEZEL WHICH GIVES THIS A LOVELY VINTAGE LOOK. THE LUMED PIP IS STILL INTACT ON THIS ONE WHICH IS A TOTAL BONUS. I LOVE THE WAY THESE WEAR ON THE WRIST...SQUAT AND IN-CHARGE!!!
  • DIAL: SO LUSCIOUS AND LOVELY. THIS NEAR MINT DIAL LOOKS ABSOLUTELY THE CATS MEOW. I LOVE THAT DARK GREYISH BLUE FINISH WHICH HAS HELD UP AMAZINGLY. THOSE CREAMY WHITE SUBDIALS REALLY POP ESPECIALLY WITH THOSE BLACK HANDS. THE HANDSET ON THIS IS PARTICULARLY CLEAN AND SHARP WITH THE TRITIUM LUME LOOKING MIGHTY BRIGHT AND CUSTARDY FOR BEING ALMOST 50 YEARS OLD. THE LUME MATCHES PERFECTLY WITH THOSE INTACT LUME PLOTS ON THE DIAL. THE CRYSTAL IS THE ORIGINAL HI-DOME AND DOES HAVE SOME MILD SCRATCHES WITH A MORE NOTICEABLE ONE ABOVE THE 11 MARKER WHICH I'VE MAINLY BUFFED DOWN. 
  • MOVEMENT: THIS SLEEK DIVE CHRONO IS  POWERED BY THE VENERABLE VALJOUX 7733. I ACQUIRED THIS FROM A FELLOW WATCH COLLECTOR WHO REPORTS THAT THIS ONE WAS SERVICED IN NOVEMBER 2016. THE CHRONO WORKS CRISPLY AND THE TIME KEEPING IS SPOT ON. WATCH WINDS SMOOTHLY AND CARRIES A SOLID POWER RESERVE.

THIS SHARKY DEEP SEA DEVIL IS MOUNTED ON A GREY TROPIC STYLE RUBBER STRAP WHICH MATCHES THIS DIVERS COLOR EXPERTLY. THE DEVIL DIVER SERIES OF WATCHES, NICKNAMED FOR THE 666 WATER RESISTANCE MARKING, ARE SOME OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER VINTAGE DIVERS. THIS DIVE CHRONO "A" VARIANT IS SUCH A CLEAN EXAMPLE. OFTEN THESE ARE PRETTY BEAT-UP, BUT THIS ONE LOOKS CRISP AND THE COLORS ON IT ARE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.
