The Watch

Difor is a French Watch manufacturer in business from 1960-1975. The factory was located in the heart of French watchmaking, Besancon. The company produced watches under three brand names: Difor, Difor Besançon, and Difor Suisse. During this time they made dive watches for the French military.

Here we have a 1960s Difor Skin Diver with a 36mm stainless steel case. The case gently curves over your wrist ending with flat-ended lugs.  A lug to lug length of 46mm and a case thickness of 12.5mm ensure a comfortable fit on your wrist. On the right side, is a large crown. Friction fit stainless steel bezel has 60-minute numerals engraved into it with an inverted triangle at 12 o’clock. A domed crystal sits above a black dial. Applied 12, 6, and 9 are placed inside triangles coated in Radium alongside baton indexes with a strip of Radium down their centers marking the hours. At 3 o’clock a framed date window. Broad arrow hands complemented by a lollipop balanced sweeping second hand coated in Radium. Text is painted in white at 12 and 6 respectively. On the reverse a screw-down case back. Inside an  Automatic Felsa 4007, 25 jewels, 18,000 beats per hour. The watch comes fitted on a 19mm leather strap.

Points of Mention


This watch is sold as "Watch Only" and therefore comes with no original Difor box or paperwork. The watch comes paired on a 19mm leather strap. The watch is from Circa. 1960s and is sold in worn, vintage condition, but remains in all original and fantastic condition for its age. The watch comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.

Personal Note


I have real difficulty letting go sometimes and this is one of those watches that when it came in I had a look through my personal collection and thought "What could go?" as I'm trying to be better and have that "One out, one in" system... Well thankfully some sense was talked into me and I've decided to give someone else the chance to own this stupidly clean and amazing example, because otherwise I'll never learn and end up keeping everything! So put me out of my misery and buy this now!
