Bulova Snorkel Super Compressor c.1962

1,725.00

One of two Bulova “Super Compressors” made, this is the only 36mm variant the company produced. Like the other brands with these dual crown EPSA divers, like Benrus, Wittnauer, Hamilton, etc., this case size is the standard and wears wonderfully.

While others tended to have similar style dials and cross-hatched diver crowns, Bulova was one of the few who signed their crowns and had a uniquely designed face easily distinguishable from the rest.

Being that Bulova only made these models for 2-3 years, this is one of the more rare Bulova dive models that was produced. Finding an example with a nice black dial and matching lume (between hands, dial, and bezel) that hasn’t left it’s proper light mint hue is no easy task — but this one brings an excellent all-around package that you’ll be more than pleased with strapping on your wrist.

[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.]
