Accuton Deep Sea "A" would get my vote and a very nice example at that. Spaceview crystals are fairly easy to find, nice Deep Sea's are not!

Is it just me of is there something wrong with the outer orange and white ring? It doesn't match the advert and has the numbers backwards. Should the numbers count down and not up?

Super watch though!

.....and I'm trying to decipher the language of the cartoon in the background, Dutch? Afrikaans? Bueller? Bueller?

Oh by the way this is a great looking watch, absolutely Accutron Deep Sea A. Regarding the outer chapter, it does seem odd, normally a dive watch would count down (minutes of dive time left), perhaps it was restored. The three fold deployment bracelet gave the wearer the ability to open the second clasp and make the bracelet fit over his/her wet suit. Once back on dry land the clasp is closed again to size the bracelet back down. A very handy feature. A very cool watch.

Sorry Gent's, I can't name the Watch the 'DEEP SEA' "A", the outer chapter and sweep seconds Hand differ from the "A"

'ACCUTRON DEEP SEA'

  I have that same watch but without the original bracelet and, as far as I'm concerned, mine is a Deep Sea A .
