Its not an everyday occurrence to see a silver-dialed diver. This one is a lovely mid-1960’s diver by WERLAINE (Swiss) and it has been professionally inspected by Localtime.
The silver, almost metallic grey dial with applied metal tritium markers and hands are in great shape and very crisp. The satin brushed steel case measured in at 39mm or 42.50mm including the screw-down crown by the date window at the 3h position. Indeed a stunner, in my humble opinion. The watch is powered by the ETA Cal. 2782 workhorse and is wearing one of my own waffle-type black silicone rubber straps, with a red stitch. These are sold elsewhere in my store in various sizes and colours and you can also see them in the last photo.
As with all the watches I handle at Localtime, the listed buy-it-now price will include a written 6-month warranty from the date of purchase.Feel free to contact me for any further information you might need.
Extra: Try my Localtime waffle-style straps (last photo), listed separately under ‘Accessories & Straps’.
Important Note: Sometimes I am asked what I exactly mean with ‘professionally inspected by Localtime’. Here is my theory on vintage watches: as a purveyor of vintage watches, my effort is to always do only what is needed to the watch. I do not buy ‘junk’ watches to resell. I am choosy with my purchases and always sell watches that are, to my knowledge, authentic and in good condition. I first inspect the watch, both visually (cosmetically) and then mechanically. If I judge that the watch is not yet in need of a full service then I do not put the watch through a service which, by the way, entails a lot of risks too. Instead, I give it what I call my ‘Spa’ treatment which will include a cleaning, changing of gaskets, oiling, lubricating and mechanical testing. If the plexi is heavily scratched or discoloured and it can not be cleaned, I change it. If the crown is wrong or worn, I also change it. Now, if the watch is in need of a full service, then my ‘professionally inspected’ description becomes ‘professionally serviced’. In both cases, I mention what has been changed (if anything) on the watch and I include a written warranty with my listed price.
Important Note On Straps/Bracelets: The straps I use on my watches (leather, canvas, suede, rubber) are always brand new, unless otherwise mentioned and, in most cases, I also sell them separately in my store, in different colours and sizes. In the case of metal bracelets, if the watch is NOS, the bracelet is also unused. If the watch is pre-owned with its original bracelet, then the bracelet is also pre-owned, unless otherwise mentioned. Either way, if in doubt, please ask.
