1966 Caravelle Sea Hunter
What We Fancy
The Sea Hunter is one of our original favorites, back in 2015-2018 these were being scooped up left and right making these tough to find these days. We’ve sold dozens over the years because they provide such great value. The large 36mm steel case, explorer style dial & some of the best aging to bezels you’ll ever see. This one is an early example with a dauphine handset instead of the later baton and with a heavily faded one and an excellent matching yellow tritium lume.
