1970s Mondaine Sea Diver
What We Fancy
I cannot explain enough how much I love this classic 1970s diver. Not only is it in mint condition but it has so many fantastic quirky characteristics I can’t possibly list them all. The un-polished UFO-style case, matte black dial, quickest roulette date window, original crystal, bakelite bezel, and nearly perfect tritium lume. There is so much value here at under $1000.
