    Default Vintage Avia Marino Diver Chronograph 1969 SOLD

    The dial is a silver sunburst finish and has aged well, as have the registers and the black on silver tachymeter and scales. The applied markers are typical of watches used for diving as they are large and easy to see.... in this case they are 'loaded' with luminous material and the edges are polished - this thread continues with the large block polished hands which are also easy to see. Signed 20 ATM yet another classy and stylish dive style watch from the 'go getting 60's.Dimensions: 39mm x Depth 13mm x 46mm Approx.The combination of large markers and large hands create that separation that I have mentioned before which is so important with multi function chronographs. Separation between the 'time' aspect of the view and the 'chronograph' tool aspect. Both need to be read quickly and understood and this design again manages to make the separation. The dial is marked T SWISS MADE T. The movement is Landeron (start top pusher stop reset bottom), manual wind rhodium plated and the stainless case is very stylish edges both polished and brushed. It is very cool!The watch has been serviced and carries a 3 month mechanical warranty. Due to their age and the original use of these watches there are minor marks to be found on the cases which add to their vintage look without detracting from the quality, view the pictures for clarification.ATG vintage watches give no waterproof guarantee or even splash proof, these watches are from a time before any idea of a fully waterproof watch.[/CENTER]
