Precimax Caribbean-style Diver

895.00

While Precimax of Neuchatel & Geneve isn’t particularly a household name, they did produce a handful of nice sport models, most notably their Aquamax diver line.

(If you’re wondering about their affiliations, their firm was also producing under the names Helios, Perfecta, and Exactus at one point or another.)

Following the lead of the popular diver market of the ‘70s, you’re looking at a quite large (and rare) compression bezel diver of the Precimax brand that looks precisely in the vein of the Philip Watch, Jenny Watch, and Ollech & Wajs Carribean 1000 watches that have gained significant popularity inrecent years.

Between the modern size, the solid 25 jewel ETA motor, the catchy navy + orange color scheme, and the rarely used compression calculator bezel (for timing the ascent of scuba divers), you’re looking at a funky sport watch from the diver hayday that you’re guaranteed not to run into many of!

[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.]
