Condition: Fantastic original condition overall with minor honest wear consistent with age and light use; solid stainless steel case is completely unpolished with razor-sharp edges and bevels; crisp caseback remains clearly legible with some tool marks; incredible original matte black dial with original lume and no degradation; original handset with matching patina to the luminous elements; original red/black acrylic diver bezel is vibrant and in mint condition with no cracks; original domed acrylic crystal with internal magnifier exhibits some light wear

Other: We absolutely love that Bulova decided to use "666 Feet" as the depth rating on many of their famous diver models from this period (hence the Devil Diver moniker). Given the inherent "tool watch" nature of these pieces, it is quite uncommon to find them in this type of condition. The original dial and hands are pristine! Even the acrylic "Coke" dive bezel is bright, vibrant, and free of cracks. The steel case is unpolished, and the original domed acrylic crystal remains quite clean. As an added bonus, the Bulova Accutron 2181 tuning-fork movement has been completely overhauled by our watchmaker. If you're going for a really cool/retro vibe this summer, this watch is absolutely perfect.
