Caravelle Sea Hunter 666 Feet Diver circa 1970

SOLD

Brand: Caravelle, a division of Bulova Watch Co.

Model: Sea Hunter ref. 2876-DP 666 Feet Diver "White Lollipop"; N0 date code = 1970

Case: Solid stainless steel case with screw-down back is approximately 36mm excluding the original signed Caravelle "C" crown

Strap: 20mm grey nylon pass-through strap with stainless steel tang buckle

Movement: Caravelle cal. 11 DP manual-winding movement (17 jewels); 18,000 BPH

Features: Original matte black 3-6-9-12 dial with silver print and Tritium hour markers; original Tritium handset with matching patina; original white "lollipop" sweeping-seconds hand; original rotating bezel displays elapsed time (i.e. during dives); solid stainless steel case with great proportions; domed acrylic crystal

Condition: Nice original condition overall with honest wear consistent with age and use; sharp stainless steel case appears to be unpolished; all printing is still lightly visible on the caseback with a few toolmarks; original matte black dial has a few minor dark spots that appear to be old oil stains (hardly noticeable); some minor wear to the original rotating dive bezel and domed acrylic crystal

Other: The dial of this 666 feet Devil Diver is reminiscent of one of the best watches ever made (the Rolex Explorer ref. 1016). And just like the 1016, the Caravelle Sea Hunter comes with perfect proportions at 36mm in diameter with a 20mm lug width. Also, let's not forget about the desirable white "lollipop" seconds hand on this later example! This watch is extremely versatile and can be worn with just about anything. We recommend sporting it casually with a t-shirt and jeans (field jacket optional).
