Regular price $1,249.99 Sale

COMING AT YOU IS A NEAR MINT AND JAW-DROPPING CLEBAR 20ATM SKIN-DIVER CHRONO SIGNED 3X WHICH IS THE DOPPELGANGER FOR THE INFAMOUS BULOVA 666 DEVIL-DIVER CHRONO.  

 

  • CASE: MINTY SOLID STEEL SKIN-DIVER CASE UTILIZED MOST FAMOUSLY BY BULOVA IN THEIR 666 DEVIL-DIVER CHRONOS .  MEASURING IN AT 38mm ACROSS BEZEL BY 48mm LUG TO LUG, THIS ONE WEARS LARGE. REALLY NICE FACTORY ORIGINAL BRUSHED FINISH ON THE TOP AND SHARP CHAMFERED EDGES WITH MIRRORED SIDES.  THESE ARE SOME OF THE MOST GNARLY DIVE CASES TO COME OUT OF THE LATE 60s/EARLY 70s.  CHECK OUT THAT MINT CONDITION DEEP BLACK ROTATING BEZEL WITH SUPER BUTTERY BI-DIRECTIONAL FRICTION ACTION.

 

  • DIAL:  PERFECT GLOSS BLACK DIAL IN MINTY CONDITION. I LOVE THOSE REVERSE PANDA CREAM COLORED SUBDIALS WHICH HAVE SUCH A RICH TONE.  KICK-ASS AND MINTY HANDSET REALLY TIES THE FACE TOGETHER.  ALL VIEWED UNDER THE ORIGINAL BUBBLY SUPER-DOME ACRYLIC WITH MINOR SCRATCHES.  THIS IS SUCH A NICE EXAMPLE OF WHAT A PERFECT VINTAGE DIAL SHOULD LOOK LIKE.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS  BRUTE IS POWERED BY A SUPER CLEAN LANDERON 248.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME. THIS WAS ACQUIRED FROM A COLLECTOR WHO HAD RECENTLY SERVICED THIS ONE.

 

  • THIS CLEBAR IS MOUNTED ON A STUDLY RUBBER TROPIC STYLE STRAP THAT MATCHES THAT STEALTHY ALL-BLACK MOTIF.  THIS IS ONE OF MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE SKIN-DIVER CHRONOS OF THE ERA....AS MENTIONED ABOVE, THIS IS THE EXACT SAME WATCH AS THE BULOVA 666 CHRONO, BUT I THINK THAT I MAY DIG THIS ONE A BIT MORE...
