RADICAL~60s ROYCE 20ATM DRESS-DIVER

Regular price $0.00 $380.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A RARE ROYCE 20ATM DRESS-DIVER FROM THE 60s WITH LOVELY ORANGE HANDS AND A STELLAR FLUTED BEZEL.

 

  • CASE: NEAR MINT DIVE CASE MEASURING A HEALTHY 38mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SCREW-DOWN CROWN BY 42.5mm LUG TO LUG.  THIS THING IS SUPER SHARP AND CRISP WITH ALL THE FACTORY ORIGINAL FINISHES INTACT.  CHECK OUT THOSE RAZOR EDGES AND THAT GORGEOUS BRUSHING ON THE CASE TOP.  I REALLY DIG THAT FLUTED BEZEL WHICH REALLY DRESSES UP THIS DIVER AND MAKES IT QUITE THE VERSATILE PIECE.

 

  • DIAL:  THIS IS ONE OF THOSE DIALS YOU JUST HAVE TO STARE AT FOR AWHILE TO TAKE IT ALL IN. IT STARTS WITH THAT GORGEOUS VERTICAL BRUSHED SILVER METALLIC DIAL.  THEN, YOU NOTICE THAT RAISED CHAPTER RING IN A SLIGHTLY DARKER SILVER FINISH WITH THE RECESSES FOR THE MINUTES FRAMED IN ORANGE. I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING QUITE LIKE IT ELSEWHERE.  MY FAVORITE DESIGN ELEMENT HERE, THOUGH, ARE THOSE HANDS. IT'S HARD TO CAPTURE IN PICS, BUT THEY ARE AN INTRICATE SANDWICH STYLE DIVER SET WITH ORANGE/SILVER PATTERNING AND THOSE CLEAN LUMED TIPS. ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS ROYCE  RUNS ON A HIGH-GRADE 25J ETA AUTOMATIC WHICH HAS JUST BEEN INSPECTED AND ADJUSTED BY MY WATCHMAKER WITH A NEW CANON PINION INSTALLED. SHE IS IN GOOD WORKING ORDER.  FULL SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN, BUT IT'S BEEN RUNNING REAL SMOOTH. 

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A THICK TEXTURED LEATHER STRAP WITH WHITE STITCHING WHICH PERFECTLY MATCHES THE VIBE OF THIS RETRO PIECE.  THIS IS DEFINITELY A UNIQUE AND INTRIGUING PIECE.  THE CASE IS ALMOST IDENTICAL TO THAT USED BY CARAVELLE IN MANY OF THEIR 666 "DEVIL-DIVERS" BUT INSTEAD UTILIZES THAT FLUTED BEZEL TO DRESS IT UP A BIT. THIS WATCH PERFECTLY WALKS THE LINE BETWEEN SPORT WATCH AND DATE-NIGHT ROMPER.  THIS IS ONE YOU GOTTA ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION.
