Large, bold, vintage 1970’s French diving watch an eye catching blue and silver checker flag pattern on the bezel. This fantastic watch looks almost like new, and features an interesting blocky hours and minute hand along with a red arrow seconds hand, and date window all of which evokes the look of a racing car’s dashboard. The piece also features a thick screw caseback with an aqualung man emblem denoting that the watch is waterproof, and has passed a 3ATM pressure test. 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.
Emer was just one of many companies hit by the quartz crisis, and little is known about the company apart from that it had French connections, and made many high-quality watches in the 1960’s and early 70’s.
