VISCIOUS~70s VETTA AUTO DIVER

Regular price $555.55 Sale

FOR SALE IS A SPECTACULAR SHARP LATE 60s VETTA AUTOMATIC DIVER WITH KILLER BLUE DIAL WITH RED ACCENTS. 

 

  • CASE: HEAVY DUTY SOLID STEEL UFO SHAPED CASE MEASURING A ROBUST 37mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING SCREW DOWN-CROWN.  THE CONDITION ON THIS PYSCHEDELIC BADASS IS FANTASTIC MAINTAINING ALL THE FACTORY FRESH BRUSHING. THE SUPER LOW PROFILE STEEL ROTATING BEZEL GIVES THIS A TOOL LOOK, TOO. 

 

  • DIAL: LATE 60s FUNK AT ITS BEST. REALLY HANDSOME SEMI MATTE CRAYOLA BLUE DIAL MAKES THIS DIAL POP ON THE WRIST. I LOVE THOSE CHUNKY APPLIED STEEL MARKERS TOPPED WITH RED ACRYLIC WEDGES WHICH GIVE THIS DIAL SOME SOLID DEPTH. CHECK OUT THAT GROOVY STEEL STICK HANDSET WITH NICELY PRESERVED TRITIUM WHICH MATCHES NICELY WITH THAT OF THOSE MARKERS. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS VETTA RUNS ON A HI GRADE 17 JEWEL ETA BASED VETTA 772. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN ON THIS ONE, BUT IT'S BEEN RUNNING LIKE AN ABSOLUTE PEACH FOR ME OBSERVED OVER DAYS BOTH ON AND OFF THE WRIST.

THIS DIVER COMES ON A PERIOD APPROPRIATE 19mm MESH BRACELET WHICH REALLY SNAPS WITH THAT UFO CASE. THIS IS A VINTAGE SPORTS PIECE FROM ONE OF MY PERSONAL FAVORITE VINTAGE BRANDS. VETTA WAS A SUB-BRAND OF WYLER MADE FOR THE ITALIAN MARKET ANS KNOWN FOR BITCHIN’ SPORTS WATCHES.
