Key Features

‘Jeunesse’, meaning ‘Youth’ in French is the perfect word to describe this high-quality 1970’s MOD diver. With its flashy black dial and eye-catching green lume indices, this vintage timepiece fits nicely into the trends of today, especially with the addition of the camo strap, while still also retaining its retro aesthetic. The piece is designed in the signature French 1970’s diver style, with black print over green lume wedges. The black bezel adds to the chunky, attractive diver look, but at 36mm this timepiece is still a comfortable fit on the wrist, being large enough to be eye-catching, but not so large that it will swamp your whole arm – in short, the perfect size. In great technical condition, this watch runs perfectly and is ready for daily wear.
