A beautiful example of a BLANDFORD SA ‘Dolphin’ all steel 200m diver with the Seiko Cal. VX42 with date, that has been professionally serviced by Localtime.
The matte steel case is in excellent condition and measures in at 39mm or 42mm including the crown at 3h. The black ‘wave’ dial with applied indices, uni-directional ratcheting elapsed-time bezel, brand new glass [we just replaced it], wonderful lume and hands are lovely. It is wearing one of my own gator-texture black rubber straps with red stitching that, in my humble opinion, compliments the watch quite nicely. These straps can be purchased separately here: 202410049882. I have included many photos, including some closeup snapshots I took just for fun, to allow you to enjoy the lovely details of this fine timepiece.
As with all the watches that are handled by 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 gator-texture silicone rubber straps!You will love these straps, they are super soft, pliable and smooth! I have found these straps to be very comfortable and a great match especially for sporty or diver watches. They come in 4 sizes [18-20-22-24mm], 5 colours of rubber [black, blue, orange, red and white] and 5 different colours of stitching [black, blue, orange, red and white]. The straps themselves have a ‘alligator’ pattern on top and a ‘ridged’ pattern on the bottom. Their length is 90mm on the buckle end [including the steel buckle] and 125mm on the tail end; so not short but not too long either. They have two floating keepers with the same rubber ‘alligator’ pattern on one side and a different, simpler pattern on the other side, so you can turn them to any of the two you line. For the first keeper, their are ‘wings’ to secure it, which is an extra little benefit. A good quality pair of spring bars is included with each strap. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have. These straps can be purchased separately from eBay item number 202410049882.
