Key Features

High-quality 1970’s SYSTEM French diving watch, featuring an unusually turquoise toned bezel and a rare screw-down type waterproof crown. The screw-type winding crown, although rather common for today’s divers, was quite rare during the 1970’s. The timepiece has a 38mm remarkably large, stainless steel case that has been restored to its original high-class shine, while the dial is a silvery-cream tone with a nice vintage patina that reminds of its age and vintage status.

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, khaki green seatbelt style nylon strap.
