Proper Cool Vintage Divers Tritium Dial.
T Swiss Made T. < 25 mc
The Dial is in fantastic condition for its age with no major marks at all.
An absolute Stunner!!
Marked T Swiss Made T for the presence of Tritium and mc25 means that the watch is Swiss and contains a certain quantity of tritium that emits less than 925 MBq (25 mCi).
The Tritium has aged beautifully in colour, however it has lost its lumination.
This is the original Untouched Vintage Dial.
THIS IS NOT A REDIAL!!!!
Case & Bezel
Top Quality all Stainless Steel Case.
The Case is in good condition for its age with some age related marks but nothing to call Mum about.
Most importantly, the case has never been polished, the case edges are still fairly sharp.
Markings to the case back, are still very legible.
Bi-Directional Bezel moves nicely in both directions, in good vintage order, some age related wear to this bezel but acceptable for such a vintage.
Case approx. measures in at:
Diameter with Crown: 39.1mm
End of lug to lug: 42.7mm
Lug Spacing: 17.5mm (weirdly)
This Case was rated "Super 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, they have aged beautifully.
A new Divers crystal has been fitted as part of the Service.
The Original Crown and stem was Missing and the Pendant tube was crushed so we have replaced both of these. The Crown is now a screw down Crown as we thought it would be pretty sweet to have one.
On a Vintage "Tropic" Rally Style Rubber strap, that I have been holding for the right Watch, with Steel buckle that compliments the Watch very well indeed.
Comes with a free GungaDin Watch Box as pictured.
