Really cool Junghans Diver Chronograph from 1972 with reverse Panda dial..
The Olympic series was made for the Olympic games in Munich in 1972. This is one oft the rarer, not so common versions. These diver chronos don't come up often.
Full serviced Calibre JUNGHANS 668.11, base Valjoux 7733. Everything works as it should.
Stainless steel case, 20mm lugs. The case is very nicely done with matte finishing.
In this form, the Junghans shares case, bezel and movement with other two popular brand of the era: Bulova and Hamilton. The Bulova 666 Deep Sea Chronograph and the Hamilton Chrono-Diver, also known as the “Big Eye”.
Like its cousins the Bulova 666 and the Hamilton Chronograph it's a hybrid of a chronograph and a diver. The chunky 38mm full stainless steel cushion case, with its brushed finishing and bi-directional rotating diver’s style bezel, has all the design characteristics of a watch from the 1970s.
Some other interesting aspects are present. The crystal, for instance, is really very different to any other watch I own from the era. It’s evocative of the Rolex “Top Hat” crystals because it’s extremely tall and has a sharp angle where its sides meet the table. I really like it, as it’s very unique.
Black rubber watch strap NEW and unused.
Over all, a wonderful serviced watch in excellent condition. Some minor signs of use and age are present but nothing serius.
Price is 884 €, tracked shipping included and payment PAYPAL F&F
Thanks to CT!
Watch and myself are located in Italy.
