Regular price $999.00 Sale

COMING AT YOU IS THIS TOTALLY TUBULAR LATE 60s DUGENA BAKELITE BEZEL DIVE CHRONO IN GREAT CONDITION.

 

  • CASE: BEAUTIFUL SOLID STEEL CASE IN NEAR MINT CONDITION.  REALLY NICE FACTORY ORIGINAL BRUSHED FINISH ON THE TOP IS LOOKING FRESH.  I LOVE THE POLISHED CHAMFERS ON THIS ONE THAT LEAD DOWN TO THE MIRRORED SIDES. REALLY GREAT CRAFTSMANSHIP.  THIS DUDE MEASURES A NICE 37.5mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SCREW-DOWN CROWN BY 43mm LUG TO LUG.  THIS CASE WAS USED BY A BUNCH OF DIVE WATCH MANUFACTURERS SUCH AS JENNY AND AQUADIVE. CHECK OUT THAT REALLY FRESH BAKELITE BLACK BEZEL(WITH LUMED BEZEL WHICH STILL GLOWS) . THIS ONE REALLY WEARS MORE LIKE A 39-40 BECAUSE OF THE THIN BEZEL AND RELATIVELY WIDER DIAL. 

 

  • DIAL: THIS ONE IS TOTALLY STUNNING. CHECK OUT THAT SEA-PEARL GREY SUNBURST DIAL WITH THOSE DARK BLUE IRIDESCENT SUBDIALS. SUCH A COOL LOOK. AS SEEN IN THE PHOTOS, SOME MINOR FADE AROUND THE SUBDIALS SEEN IN DARKER LIGHT ALMOST UNNOTICEABLE IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT. I LOVE THE SUNKEN TREATMENT ON THE SUBDIALS WHICH GIVES THIS ONE SOME NICE DEPTH. THE TALL APPLIED STEEL MARKERS ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND THE TRITIUM ON THE MARKERS MATCH PERFECTLY WITH THE AGED TRITIUM ON THE STEEL STICK HANDS. SUCH A NO-NONSENSE HANDSOME DIAL.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS DIVER DUDE IS POWERED BY A VALJOUX 7733. ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME.  SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN BUT THIS ONE HAS BEEN RUNNING FLAWLESSLY OVER WEEKS OF OBSERVATION 

 

  • THIS DUGENA IS MOUNTED ON A LARGE HOLE DARK BLUE RALLYE STRAP WHICH LOOKS AWESOME AND WEARS GREAT.  THIS ONE EXUDES MACHISMO. A REALLY UNIQUE PIECE WITH A TON OF BADASS CHOPS!
