Galco Skin Diver c.1970s *NOS*

**New Old Stock**

Galco has long been a Gallet sub-brand, but most of what you’d see from them over the years tended to be timers and stopwatches. As a pleasant surprise, this new old stock Galco skin diver is certainly a welcomed sight.

Something that Gallet never produced much of, this sport model is in wonderfully preserved condition. Black dial + bezel, large lume-filled indices (a classic skin diver trait of the period), red arrow sweep hand, and thin, non-imposing lugs.

Not mimicking another specific model, this diver has it’s own style that you’ll be able to appreciate from the get-go and break-in yourself for the first time.

Function - This watch is wound by hand. It is recommended to wind the crown 10-15 times to typically give a power reserve to last throughout the day. If you do fully wind the watch, stop when you begin to feel tightness in winding pressure.

[All vintage watches are expected to function as described. However, due to age and generally unknown service history (unless otherwise stated), these watches may not keep time as accurately as new or quartz (battery) watches. This is completely normal and does not indicate that there is a major problem. Like your automobile, all mechanical watches will likely need to be serviced at some point in time. Please keep this in mind, as there is no guarantee regarding when these vintage watches may need standard maintenance. Every watch sold by Buying On Time is done so with the expectation that it is not currently in need of service or repair, unless noted. We guarantee that all watches sold are accurately described and in the stated condition when they leave our hands.]
