Starting with the case, it looks unpolished; it’s sharp, so is the case back in which you can read “Caravelle-Stainless Steel-Automatic-Antimagnetic-Waterproof-Shock Resistant”. The glossy dial is in good condition, it has one imperfection right above the Caravelle logo. Tritium is creamy and all present, to the exception of one little spot in the bottom of the hour hand. The bezel is as well original, and freely rotates both ways. The crown appears to be original, too. Inside, the movement is working flawlessly and it keeps great time. Hands are all original and correct, as well as the crystal with the correct date magnifier.



If you have ended up here is because you love skin divers (or at least, they attract you). This is an awesome example of what I believe to be a true value proposition. It has similar features to legendary watches (never better said!): the hands from a Longines Legend Diver, the dial configuration of a Rolex Explorer…

Now, in the metal, this watch looks and feels even more amazing that it looks. It sits beautifully on the wrist and will suit almost every wrist (unless you have significantly large wrists), due to the elongated lugs. The tritium looks creamy and stands out, contrasting the black glossy paint of the dial. The date function also makes this piece a very nice candidate for all of you, desk divers.
