The Watch
Back in the 1960's the Skin Diver market was booming and the Le Cheminant offering was the "Master Mariner" Line. This Diver would of set you back £22 back in 1967 which was a fair whack considering the average wage was £10!
The "Shark tooth" Dial, which looks as menacing as it was back in the 1960s, is this guys main pull.  It has real, and was probably inspired by, Eterna Super Kontiki vibes and wears fantastically.
It's a definite for the Vintage Diver lover!
