  • CASE:  SUPER SVELTE ALL STEEL CASE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.  WATCH MEASURES A LARGE 40.5mm ACROSS CASE NOT COUNTING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN AT 4. ALL THE ORIGINAL FACTORY FINISHES ARE INTACT, AND THIS ONE IS SHARP.  SOME MINOR SCUFFS AND HAIRLINES HERE AND THERE, BUT THIS ONE IS IN AMAZING PRESERVED SHAPE.  PROBABLY MY FAVORITE DIVE CASE.  CHECK OUT ALL THOSE AMAZING FACETS AND CHAMFERS.......THIS ONE EVEN GIVES SEIKO A RUN FOR ITS MONEY.  CHECK OUT THAT GORGEOUS BAKELITE COKE BEZEL. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST MODERN WEARING VINTAGE DIVE WATCH CASES WITH A NICE LARGE SIZE.

 

  • DIAL: IN MY OPINION, THE MOST STRIKING DIAL OF ALL THE BULOVA DEVIL DIVERS.  NICE AND WIDE SEMI-MATTE BLACK FINISH IN MINT CONDITION WITH THOSE PUFFY APPLIED LUME MARKERS WHICH HAVE AGED TO A GORGEOUS CUSTARD COLOR AND MATCH THAT ON THE HANDSET.  THE BEAUTY IN THIS DIAL IS ITS SIMPLICITY AND LEGIBILITY WITH JUST 2 LINES OF TEXT, THAT GROOVY APPLIED STEEL ACCUTRON LOGO, AND THOSE COOL CROSS-HAIRS. EVERY DETAIL HAS BEEN PAIN-STAKINGLY CONCEIVED ON THIS DIAL.  I MEAN, CHECK OUT THE RED ON SILVER DATE WHEEL.  SO GOOD. ALL TIED TOGETHER BY A PAIR OF MINT DAGGER HANDS WITH THAT SMOOTH SWEEPER WITH THE ACCUTRON LOGO AT THE BASE.  IT'S HARD TO FIND ONE OF THESE WITH THE ORIGINAL DOUBLE BUBBLE HI-DOME CRYSTALS WITH INTEGRATED INTERNAL CYCLOPS.  YOU CAN GET LOST LOOKING AT THIS FACE.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS DEEP-SEA  RUNS ON A HIGH-GRADE IN-HOUSE BULOVA-ACCUTRON 218-1 TUNING FORK MOVEMENT; A TECHNOLOGY BULOVA DEVELOPED FOR EARLY NASA FLIGHT INSTRUMENTS USED ON SPACE-SHUTTLES IN THE 60s.  EVERYTHING IS WORKING FANTASTIC ON THIS ONE. DATE IS QUICKSET WITH THE CROWN PUSHED IN. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN BUT THIS ONE IS RUNNING VERY SMOOTHLY AND KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME.

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A SPORTY TAN STRAP WHICH LOOKS HANDSOME ON THIS OL'DEVIL.  THE BULOVA 666 DIVERS HAVE BECOME CLASSIC COLLECTIBLES OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS DUE TO THEIR EVIL DESIGNATION, BULLETPROOF BUILD QUALITY, AND GROOVY DESIGNS.  THIS IS MY PERSONAL FAVORITE 666.
