Key Features

Vintage 1970’s French BERLI-LYON diving watch with interesting dial design and fun metal-grey and mint green lume colour combination. The case is a nice 31mm size with an original metal bezel, while the simple, high-quality strap is the standard 18mm width. The 1960’s and early 70’s saw a massive rise in popularity of diving watches, with the boom particularly concentrated in France. Today, the most interesting vintage divers tend to hail from there, and you can be sure that pretty much any French diver you stumble across will be a real treat to wear. This timepiece is in fairly good condition with some scratching around the case, while the movement works perfectly and keeps good time despite its age.
