Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no Rodania box or Rodania paperwork. The watch comes paired on an aftermarket NATO strap. The watch is from the late 1960s and is in worn condition, but overall very good. The watch has been serviced and comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.
A great design for an even greater price! This model offers great value for someone looking for a vintage diver without breaking the bank.
