Jubilee Skin Diver ref. F511 c.1960's

495.00

Coming in at an excellent 37mm, this thick coin-edge bezeled skin diver is about as ideal as they come.

Jubilee, a former Longines-Wittnauer company, imported a smaller amount of watches compared to the American brands of the day, but these skin diver models are probably the coolest of the bunch. Some you’ll see came with a metal bezel insert and/or “666 feet” on the dial, but this variant has a thick resin bezel insert and “17 jewels” listed on the dial, representing the (essentially) Seiko 6602B movement inside.

At a great value, this is a good pickup for someone with a fun, rare/obscure vintage collection.

[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.]
