Key Features

Large, vintage 1970’s dual-bezel diving watch with the now famous PEPSI design in the colours of blue and red on the rotating bezel. This fantastic watch looks almost like new, and features an interesting red geometric numeral design with a large 6 and 12, a rally minute track, orange lume seconds hand, and date window, as well as a thick screw caseback with an aqualung man emblem.

This vintage timepiece still works perfectly despite its age, and with its remarkable size and fun colours it really does make for the perfect vintage diver. The 24-hour Pepsi bezel is more a decorative element, as no real GMT function in the movement is implemented.

About Amsa

AMSA (A Moynet, Paris) was registered by A. Moynet SA, La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. Little is known about the brand, and we can assume it was one of so many sadly lost to the quartz crisis of the 1970’s. 

Servicing and Guarantee

This timepiece has been serviced with full disassembly. There is a 12-month guarantee, subject to the usage and care guidelines. The watch comes with a new, high-quality black nylon strap.
