Here's a grail for dive watch fans: The 1960s Favre Leuba Bathy 50 in deep ocean blue.
This behemoth is a solid block of steel and cool.
Check out the minty cerulean blue bull's eye dial, with the red depth gauge, designed to register depths up to to feet...and the submarine shaped minute hand...
The blue bezel clicks with each turn, either way.
The manual wind movement, recently serviced, keeps excellent time.
This beast is not for the faint of wrist: 43mm across, excluding the unsigned crown, by 48mm from lug to lug. A few minor scratches and dings throughout, nothing major, nothing to detract from the immense appeal of this classic. One ding on the crystal between the 9 and 10 marker.
Comes on a Favre Leuba-signed stainless steel NSA band that will fit a 7.5 inch wrist.
Can you live without this? You cannot.
