Caravelle Sea Hunter 666 Feet Diver circa 1971 'White Lollipop'


Brand: Caravelle, a division of Bulova Watch Co.

Model: Sea Hunter 666 Feet Diver "White Lollipop" ref. 41585; N1 date code = 1971

Case: Solid stainless steel case with screw-down back is approximately 36mm excluding the original signed Caravelle "C" winding crown

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

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 diver bezel displays elapsed time; unpolished solid stainless steel case with great proportions and factory NOS acrylic crystal; retro Milanese mesh bracelet

Condition: Very nice original condition overall with some honest wear consistent with age and use; 36mm solid stainless steel case appears to be unpolished; fantastic screw-down caseback remains clearly legible; flawless original matte black dial with crisp silver print and stunning yellow Tritium patina to the hour markers; excellent original matching Tritium hands; original vibrant white "lollipop" seconds hand; original rotating dive bezel exhibits some light wear (primarily near the triangle); correct new old stock factory 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 no longer flies under the radar amongst collectors. These also come with the same case proportions as the legendary 1016, clocking in at 36mm in diameter with a 20mm lug width. Also, let's not forget about the correct desirable white "lollipop" seconds hand on this later example from 1971. This particular Caravelle Devil Diver features 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 (black bomber jacket optional).
