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

Features: Stunning original matte black 3-6-9-12 dial with silver print and yellow Tritium hour markers; desirable white "lollipop" sweeping-seconds hand; original rotating bezel has aged to an incredible "tropical" burgundy hue and displays elapsed time (i.e. during dives); solid stainless steel case with great proportions; domed acrylic crystal; cool mesh bracelet

Condition: Very nice original condition overall with minor honest wear consistent with age and use; solid stainless steel case exhibits light wear; screw-down caseback remains clearly legible; beautiful original matte black dial with crisp silver print and creamy yellow Tritium patina to the hour markers; original Tritium hands have aged darker than the dial; fantastic white "lollipop seconds hand; original rotating dive bezel has aged to an attractive "tropical" burgundy hue; clean domed acrylic crystal

Other: With a dial that is reminiscent of one of the best watches ever made (the Rolex Explorer ref. 1016), the Caravelle Sea Hunter also comes with the same perfect proportions clocking in 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 from 1971. This particular Caravelle Devil Diver features a gorgeous combination of colors with just the right amount of patina for that killer vintage look. It is extremely versatile and can be worn with just about anything - We recommend wearing it casually with a t-shirt and jeans (green field jacket optional).
