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

Bracelet: 20mm vintage-style stainless steel mesh bracelet (adjustable size via sliding clasp)

Movement: Caravelle cal. 11 DP manual-winding movement (17 jewels); 18,000 BPH; N0 date code = 1970

Features: Stunning original Tritium dial with yellow patina; original white "lollipop" sweeping-seconds hand; original rotating "tropical" bezel displays elapsed time for dives; solid stainless steel case with great proportions

Condition: Fantastic original condition overall with minor honest wear for a dive watch from this era; solid stainless steel case is thick and sharp; original dial and handset; white "lollipop" seconds hand is missing a tiny bit of white paint towards the base; original rotating dive bezel has aged from black to an incredible tropical burgundy hue; a couple of very minor toolmarks on the caseback

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 Explorer, the Caravelle Sea Hunter comes with perfect proportions at 36mm 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 (green military jacket optional).
