Other: This rare 1960s Candino Blue Sea Automatic isn't your typical vintage diver watch - For starters, check out the crazy exotic dial with unique raised hour blocks and red outer track. The brushed metallic finish shimmers out in the sun where it belongs. We love the matching hands and symmetrical date window placement at 6 o'clock. The sturdy 35mm stainless steel case wears incredibly well on the wrist with its original signed bracelet. It's hard to imagine a more interesting vintage stainless steel sport watch in this type of original condition for well under a grand.
