For your consideration is a November 1969 6119-7173 Rallye Diver. An extremely rare and early version of a unique watch that will make you the coolest person on Instagram. All components are completely original to the watch. The crystal is replacement Type II hardlex from Klein.
The watch is completely original unto itself and I would rate the cosmetic condition as good. The case has all of the original surface brushing on the upper surface and has not been polished; retaining all of its original case lines. The dial and hands are in excellent condition and retain their original luminous material with some minor aging and small imperfections. The bezel insert is ghosted from the original blue, but retains the checkerboard design that made these so unique. The watch comes on a Watch Gecko leather band.
Service and Warranty
I serviced this watch on 06/07/2022. That process includes a full cleaning and evaluation of all movement components and proper lubrication. Lubricants used were Moebius synthetic varieties appropriate for this watch movement type. The movement has two custom produced, American made jewels in the ports of the barrel arbor. The amplitude of the balance wheel is 250-270 range and the rate is (+/-) 2 sec/day. The case back and crown all have new, and factory correct seals. The crown was mechanically rebuilt to replace the gasket. This watch comes with a 100% money back promise of originality and a 1-year limited warranty on the movement from the time of sale.
Shipping through USPS 2-day. Non-US buyers — I ship with a flat rate using USPS International priority.
