Belforte Sea Diver 666ft c.1970

0.00

If there’s a short list of watch styles that we’ve always liked, frontloaders and monocase pieces are definitely on it.

Belforte was a sub-brand of Benrus and brought with it plenty of the parent’s traits along the way. This piece has the signed 3-star crown, an ETA handwind motor, and a killer dial/hand combination. Only thing that could make it better?

666ft rating. Ah, another “devil diver” of a different flavor.

We certainly approve!

[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.]
