Key Features

Vintage 1970’s FLUX French diver. This timepiece is in brilliant condition, virtually new old stock with no real visible wear, and just minimal traces from storing/handling. The dial is the true highlight of this watch, although perceived as true black, when catching the light you can see the dark-cobalt-blue dial base tone – a real treat! Especially combined with the nice, chunky mint green lume indexes. The case is a nice 32mm 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. The movement is in great condition, and still works perfectly despite its age.
