another Chrono w/ 666 feet on the dial. Nice  They must have had a unique name for this watch, or maybe this series of Chrono- perhaps some subset of Oceanographer or the likes.  Again, without and ad or other documentation indicating this series w/ 666 ft etc... IMO the generic Chrono series works fine for now as a tentative ID.  While one could argue this may be an unknown- IMO that would perhaps follow other examples, but not be doing this ID justice, if you will.  Changed my ticks to two for tentative.

Geoff, what's the Bulova movement model # and can you enter it in the Movement Model field?

Also, how about pics of the movement and case back? Thanks.

Changed my vote to three ticks for generic/base Chronograph.

Deep Sea Chronograph.

The subject movement is a Chronograph and the Super Compressor Case is depth rated to 666', as indicated on the Dial.

"DEEP SEA CHRONOGRAPH" -  variant unknown

In reply to by FifthAvenueRes…

Fifth- I think if we have a photo of the case back, or simply ask Geoff, we'll find out this watch wasn't using Brevet super compressor technology this late (no Brevet Patent markings).  Doesn't have any impact on the ID of this one though...

Question. I know it's chronograph but why put a tachometer chapter ring on a 'deep sea' model? Is that a silly question?
