1960’s ARDATH [Dreyfuss & Co., Swiss] Vintage Denis Diver Watch – ETA Cal. 2452


Out of stock

A nice ‘Denis Diver’ by ARDATH Watch Co. [Dreyfuss & Co., Swiss] from the 1960’s that  has been professionally and fully serviced by Localtime.

It is in honest/authentic condition throughout and ready to proudly wear or join your collection. The 36mm [39mm counting the crown at 3h] stainless steel Aquastar-style case is in unpolished condition and has only been lightly cleaned. It houses an automatic ETA Cal. 2452 with date at 3h. All parts of this watch are its original parts, excluding the hour/minute hands that were replaced by the closest fitting ones I found. The black gilt dial is stunning. I have made many photos, including some closeup snapshots, just for fun, and also some from the service bench. This lovely watch is fitted with one of my own black rubber Tropic straps.

As with all the watches that I handle here at Localtime, the BIN price includes a written 6-month written warrantee from the date of purchase. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have.

Extra: Try my Localtime tropic-style straps! Let’s face it, we all wish we could use the vintage, original type, but they are nowhere to be found anymore. If you do find them, they are very expensive or dry and stiff if they were not properly kept all these years. Not to mention the fact that 22 & 24mm are really rare as hen teeth. I have found these straps to be a good alternative to the vintage tropic straps and very comfortable. They come in 4 sizes [18-20-22-24mm] and with 2 smooth, floating keepers. The straps themselves are black and have a nice tropic pattern on them. Their length is 85mm on the buckle end [including the steel buckle] and 120mm on the tail end; so not short but not too long either. I include a pair of good quality speed pins too. You can see them on the photo here and they can be purchased separately from my eBay store under eBay item number 132475721565.
