Caravelle Sea Hunter 666 Feet Diver circa 1970

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: Original matte black 3-6-9-12 dial with creamy Tritium hour markers; original Tritium handset with matching yellow patina; original white "lollipop" sweeping-seconds hand; original rotating bezel has aged to an incredible "tropical" brown hue and displays elapsed time (i.e. during dives); solid stainless steel case with great proportions; domed acrylic crystal

Condition: Nice original condition overall with minor honest wear consistent with age and use; sharp stainless steel case appears to be unpolished with a few toolmarks on the caseback; attractive original matte black dial with creamy Tritium patina to the hour markers; original Tritium handset with matching yellow patina; minute hand is missing some of its luminous material; original rotating dive bezel has aged to a fantastic "tropical" brown hue and exhibits minor wear; a few superficial scratches on the 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 legendary 1016, the Caravelle Sea Hunter comes with 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 1970. This Sea Hunter is extremely versatile and can be worn with just about anything - We recommend showing it off casually with a t-shirt and jeans (green field jacket optional).
