Its acrylic crystal protects a black dial white batons with Tritium lume mark the hours with a date window at 3 o’clock. White baton hands along with a red centre seconds hand, give the dial a nice pop. The stainless steel case back is styled like a screw-down but pops on and off instead.

Points of Mention
This watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no box or paperwork. The watch comes paired with a period-correct 19mm tropic rubber strap. The watch is from Circa. 1970s and is in near old stock condition as you can see. The watch is all original. The watch comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.
A fantastic option for someone who wants an incredible looking watch at an affordable price point, the design is brilliant and offers everything you'd want in a vintage divers watch. Thanks to the chrome case and the movement it brings the price down, but due to the condition and the fact the watch comes with our warranty is becomes a bargain.
