Key Features

Vintage 1960’s high quality Swiss CAMY diver, with an elegant shape and easy-to-read black & lume dial. The watch is a very comfortable size, and fits well on the wrist. It features a hammerhead hour hand and arrow tip seconds hand, with lume triangles and print on the dial, finished off a tiny red accent in the date window – a typical set of features for French diving watches (see article). The printed numerals over the lume is an unusual feature! The case is unusually slim, with a wide ‘Fifty Fathoms’ style bezel (it’s a bit loose, sits well but rotates rather easily).
