FOR SALE IS A RATHER GORGEOUS LANCO DIVER WITH AWESOME  DIAL AND ORIGINAL HANDSET.  

 

  • CASE: CHUNKY CHROMED CUSHION CASE MEASURING A NICE 36mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING CROWN. CASE IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION MAINTAINING ITS ORIGINAL BRUSHED FINISHING.  ON THE BRACELET, THIS GUY WEARS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.

 

  • DIAL: A PERFECT MIX OF PATINA AND NO-NONSENSE UTILITY ON THIS CLASSIC DIVE DIAL. I LOVE THE ARABIC NUMERALS AT 12/6/9 WHICH MAKE THIS HIGHLY LEGIBLE

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS BEAUTY RUNS ON A TISSOT BASED 17J MANUAL WINDER WHICH HAS BEEN RUNNING VERY WELL AND KEEPING GOOD TIME.  SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN BUT THE MOVEMENT LOOKS QUITE CLEAN WITH GOOD AMPLITUDE ON THE TIMEGRAPHER.

 

  • WATCH COMES ON ITS ORIGINALSTEEL 5 LINK SIGNED BRACELET WHICH CAN ACCOMMODATE UP TO AN 8 1/4” WRIST. THE BRACELET REALLY MAKES THIS WEAR LIKE A DREAM. THIS LANCO DATES TO A TIME IN THE 70s WHEN THE BRAND WAS PARTNERING WITH TISSOT FOR MOVEMENTS AND GENERAL DESIGN. LANCO WAS PRETTY FAMOUS FOR THEIR BARRACUDA LINE OF DIVERS IN THE 60s. I REALLY LOVE THE 70s VIBES AND CLEAN ASTHETIC OF THIS PIECE. SUCH A GREAT ALL-ROUNDER SUMMER VINTAGE WATCH.
