New O & W Diver 660ft - the Ranger model
We had many requests to provide a diver with good luminescence but that could rated deeper than 200 feet – these must not be recreational divers!!!! So here is the latest entry from O & W several months in the making this is not an M-series case this is very thick and heavy. It is a watch that does not to my knowlege bears similarities to another currently produced watch but if someone knows one do let me know. Shown here is the BLACK dial there is also a citron colored dial – yellow more lemon! This is the O & W Ranger Precision Diver. 25 jewel Swiss movement and 20 ATM depth pressure tested. There has been a need for a new watch among people who cannot or will not pay the price of certain excellent but, expensive watch companies – they offer wonderful timepieces but, the prices are not in keeping with everyone’s budget for an EVERYDAY knock around watch which watch sellers, collectors and just people who chat about watches call “beaters”. A beater does not need to be ugly and cheaply made. This is such an example of a reasonable priced watch with the looks of a sub in many ways a military like dial with refinement and a classy look that can be worn by a man or a woman – it comes on an oyster steel solid stainless bracelet with adjustable links and clasp with double flip lock – yes it has a SCREW DOWN crown and back.
It has a firm uni-directional ratcheting bezel ( not inexpensive friction which slips) . This watch has as its power plant a new ETA 2824-2 automatic self-winding movement which is shockproof and all Swiss made. The is the same movement used by MANY MANY of the worlds’ best watchmakers for their watches for reliability, and ease of repair and parts are always available although unlikely you will ever need to do that.
This watch was made by the respected Albert Wajs of Switzerland of Ollech and Wajs who have manufactured durable and collectible military watches for over 40 years. This watch cannot be bought elsewhere in the US; the dial has some military style. SIZE: It is 42 mm in diameter without the crown and 46.0 mm lug to lug. It is 12.5 mm thick. Yes the dial markers are ALL Superluminova – for your assurance of good use in dim light situations and night time as are the Hands . This is an outstanding buy with a price of 368.00. + shipping while they last. Please refer to RANGER-ORANGE for this color and RANGER-BLK for the black dial shown in another part of the page. Thank you.
