Waltham Diver Dater c.1973

415.00

The Waltham Diver Dater.

This wonderfully styled early 1970’s skin diver piece is powered by the SGT 140-1A, 17 jewel handwind movement. This caliber is a form of the French FE 140-1A produced by the Societé des Gardetemps SA. The timepiece is a product after the American Waltham company ceased to exist in its traditional form, but Waltham was still putting out some subtle classic pieces just like this one.

For those not looking for the flamboyance of the solid orange or green models, this all black timepiece flies well under the radar with small contrasting markers and numerals and a POP from the orange pylon sweep hand.

All ‘70s. All good.

[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.]
