Regular price $0.00 $799.00 Sale

COMING AT YOU IS THIS TOTALLY TUBULAR LATE 60s REPLAY VALJOUX 7734 SURFBOARD DIVE CHRONOGRAPH IN NEAR MINT 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 BRUSHED SIDES. REALLY GREAT CRAFTSMANSHIP.  THIS DUDE MEASURES A NICE 37.5mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL CROWN BY 42.5mm LUG TO LUG.  THIS IS THE SAME CASE USED BY CROTON ON A FEW OF THEIR LATE 60s/EARLY 70s CHRONOMASTER AVIATOR SEA-DIVERS. CHECK OUT THAT REALLY FRESH INSET BLACK BEZEL IN MINT CONDITION WITH THE DUAL SCALE MILITARY NUMERALS. THIS ONE REALLY WEARS MORE LIKE A 39-40 BECAUSE OF THE THIN BEZEL AND RELATIVELY WIDER DIAL. CHECK OUT THE SHIP ENGRAVING ON THE BACK WHICH WAS ALSO USED BY GIGANDET/WAKMANN MAKING ME THING THAT THIS WATCH COULD'VE BEEN PRODUCED BY THE BREITLING GROUP FOR AN EASTERN EUROPEAN MARKET.  

 

  • DIAL: I'VE SEEN MANY A SURF-BOARD DIAL, BUT NEVER ONE LIKE THIS. SUCH ATTENTION TO DETAIL ON THIS ONE. I LOVE THAT LIGHT GREY BACKGROUND WHICH HAS A SANDPAPER TEXTURE TO IT WITH THAT BRILLIANT WHITE SURFBOARD HOUSING THE SUBDIALS. THE POPS OF ORANGE THROUGHOUT ARE RAD. I ALSO DIG THAT RALLYE TREATMENT IN WHITE WHICH GIVS THIS ONE A RACY APPEARANCE. THE ORIGINAL TRITIUM IS LOOKING CREAMY AND WELL AGED EVENLY ON HANDS AND DIAL. YOU GOTTA LOVE A GOOD LOOKING DATE WINDOW AT 6. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS SURFER DUDE IS POWERED BY A VALJOUX 7734 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 SURF DIVER IS MOUNTED ON A THICK TEXTURED LEATHER STRAP WHICH LOOKS UBER SPORTY.  THIS IS AS COOL AS A SURFBOARD DIAL CHRONO GETS. A REALLY UNIQUE PIECE WITH A TON OF BADASS CHOPS!
