It's been 45+ years since my Devil Diver was stolen from me, and i finally was in the position to grabbed one!

She's a 1969 Devil diver 2-dial chrono with the valjoux 7733 manual wind movement. it is in fairly good shape especilly the bezel considering it's 50 years old! but will need a cleaning and oiling to get it up and running proper. This is probably the most excited I have ever been about a watch purchase!


Not my pic but it is the actual watch i purchased!




Thanks for looking !!

Yowza, that is something to see db ! :eek: :smileyface_hand_cla

Those movements all by themselves are extra special, and then
to have it in a watch like this Bulova here is phenomenal !

into the mix. ..It looks beautiful, and like it has centerpiece
of a collection written all over it. What a find !

Big congratulations to you !!! :smile1:

Oh boy, didn't realize you yourself were taking this watch apart
like this, and doing the work db ! :jaw:..That is extraordinary !!! :eek2:

Just look at everything there, and how delicate, and small all
of the parts actually are. Holy cow, you really know your watches !
You have to be so happy that you have one back in the collection,
and know she's tuned up perfectly too ! :clapping-hands-abov

Wow, well done, and huge congrats once again here !!!

Huge congrats. It's a classic beauty.
Being able to service it yourself is the icing on the cake.
