Vantage A-20 600ft. Diver c.1970

495.00

By the end of 1966, Hamilton (of Lancaster, PA) ownership also held and produced both Buren and Vantage watch brands. As a result, arguably some of the coolest models from both brands came about within a handful of following years.

This circa 1970 600-foot rated Vantage diver is one of those classically styled divers from the period. The solid stainless steel “import case” timepiece is in great condition, retaining the original screw down crown setup which was uncommon for even well-known divers at the time, and brings a lot to the table in terms of value among its peers.

A wonderful addition to any vintage, particularly diver-oriented, watch 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.]
