Regular price $695.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A MEGA RAD 1960s ARDATH SKIN-DIVER CHRONO WITH SOME SEXY AGING ON THE DIAL AND LUME.

 

  • CASE: SOLID STAINLESS STEEL SKIN-DIVER STYLE CASE MEASURING A SPORTY 38.5mm NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 47mm LUG TO LUG.  THIS ONE WEARS NICE AND LARGE ON THE WRIST AND LOOKS NO-NONSENSE. BLACK/SILVER BEZEL IS IN REALLY NICE CONDITION WITH SOME MINOR SCRATCHING AND ROTATES BIDIRECTIONALLY. IT'S NICE TO HAVE THAT LUME PIP INTACT.

 

  • DIAL: LOOK AT THIS BUCCANEER.  I LOVE THE CLASSY LOOK ON THIS ONE. THERE IS SOME MILD EVEN AGING AND DEGRADATION ON THE JET BLACK DIAL WHICH GIVES THIS ONE A SLIGHTLY TROPICAL LOOK.  I LOVE THOSE APPLIED ARROW/ARABIC MARKERS WHICH GIVES THIS ONE A SOMEWHAT DRESSY FEEL. CHECK OUT THOSE FAT STEEL STICK HANDS WITH THAT AGED TO PERFECTION LUME WHICH MATCHES THE FULLY INTACT TRITIUM PLOTS ON THE DIAL.

 

  • MOVEMENT: I BELIEVE THIS ONE RUNS ON A SWISS 17J LANDERON 149  WHICH HAS BEEN KEEPING TIME, AND ALL CHRONO FUNCTIONS WORK CRISPLY.  WATCH WAS ACQUIRED FROM A COLLECTOR WHO STATES THIS ONE WAS SERVICED ABOUT 2 YEARS AGO. 

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A RUGGED VINTAGE STYLE CHOCOLATE STRAP WHICH LOOKS SUPER SPORTY.  THE SKIN-DIVER CHRONOGRAPH IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE VINTAGE VARIANTS. THIS IS A REALLY COOL EXAMPLE WITH A NICE SIZE AND HEFT TO IT.
