Very cool Blue Vintage Divers Tritium Dial.
- Swiss Made -
The Dial is in lovely condition with no real marks at all. Nice example.
Marked Swiss Made for the presence of Tritium, which has slightly discoloured but still shines faintly when under a charge.
This is the original Untouched Vintage Dial.
THIS IS NOT A REDIAL!!!!
Case & Bezel
Top Quality Robust Monocoque Swiss Made all Stainless Steel Case.
Case ref: 72.41.51
The Case has some age related scratches and minor dings but nothing to call home about.
Most importantly, the case seems to of never been polished.
Markings still legible to the case back.
Bi-Directional Blue Bakelite Bezel moves smoothly, there are some minor cracks to the Bezel accompanied by scratches throughout, it has given the bezel a beautiful "aged" feel.
All in all the case wears fantastically on the Wrist and is something different from your usual Diver fodder.
Case approx. measures in at:
Diameter with crown: 44.7mm (roughly)
End of lug to lug: 36mm
Lug Spacing: 20mm
This Case was rated 450 feet Waterproof back in the Day, it is now a Vintage Timepiece, it has NOT been tested for Water Resistance and if you wish to Submerge this Watch, you will need to have the Watch Professionally Resealed before doing so!!
Hands, Crystal and Crown
Original Hands are in very good order, some age related discolouration to the infill.
Crystal has been lightly Polished as part of the Service, this Crystal is Case specific so we wanted to keep it Original, there are a few tiny marks which seem to be inside the Crystal, just minor and well worth keeping this Original.
When the Watch came to us, the Crown's gasket was perished and the female part of the stem had been the victim of some minor water ingress, so we took the decision to replace both of these for the safety of the Watch.
On a new 20mm Handmade Blue Suede Leather Strap, with blue stitching and Steel buckle that compliments the Watch very well indeed.
Comes with a free GungaDin Watch Box as pictured.
