Right down to the original bracelet, that is a fine looking watch plains. Hard not to be drawn to the iconic style of these dive type watches. Bezel ring is perfect, don't find 'em this nice very often!

Sharp Deep Sea! Not sure that is the original band - center section doesn't match; also the rotating ring in the '72 ad does not have the seconds hash marks past 20 - subj watch does, and perhaps this is just something different a few years earlier. Very cool watch, I like these!

hey Jerin,

This would look so much better with a relumed dial and hands. This is one really sharp watch that deserves just a bit more TLC. JMO

If we can establish the case model number I might be able to locate the crystal spec from the ABC parts cataloge. The number should be stamped on the inside back case.
