Morning,

1950s Accurist Divermatic today, running on a 21j ETA 2452. Could never quite get my mind round the name; “….matic”? Absolutely. “Diver”? Absolutely not.

I’ve yet to see another example which didn’t have this same textured dial. Perhaps specific to this model, or perhaps simply a coincidence.

Regards.

Finally arrived yesterday! After 5 weeks 'priority' postage from America. My grail watch.

Much cleaner now after about 20 minutes in the ultrasonic cleaner last night which removed lots of human slime and what appeared to be rouge/polishing compound. Still needs a little more work on the bracelet to get it up to scratch. The fibreglass mid links need a bit more cleaning as someone has had a poor go in the past. And the crystal needs re-seating at some point (note its 90 degrees out! and the gasket isn't quite right) and a service is likely overdue so both will be done at the same time.

Today's arrival & the latest Casio to join the collection.

Model: SWC-02  - World Cup USA 94 edition.

Straight from the bay as spares & repair for £6.98, just needed a new battery, clean and looks as good as new.
