Seagull Vintage Diver

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

when I was posting the review of the 819.310, I didn't expected that my last 'win' from E-Bay will arrive so soon. Also I didn't expect that it will impress me so much, sorry for the delay of the review :yes: :

The 819.310 was ordered before Chinese New Year, but when I saw this vintage diver, I didn't hesitate to try to buy it. And I did it much cheaper than I expected :)

Yes, I realize it's a homage, but again all the details are excellent ant the finish is amazing.

The bezel is one-directional and clicks stable, so can't rotate incidentally, but it's still easy to rotate it manually.

I don't know the ages of that watch, but it looks near perfect, even the convex lume dot on the bezel is still there.

No surprises from the back - solid and hard to open, unfortunately somebody succeed to scratch it. I have no opening tool, so till now I can't show the movement, but it's ST6, everyone have seen such.

This watch is a 'real' diver - with metalic bracelet, lume hands and screwed crown. The crown is marked with the old Seagull's logo (which I like more than the new 'S'). Also the crown is very well designed to be thin, so it suits the silhouette of the watch.

Perfect combination of bi-color case/bracelet and black dial. I think it's not a genuine bracelet, if somebody knows where to find, please let me know. Of course the hands have proper shape and with the markers are well covered with lume. I don't know how to shot a dark picture of the dial, but it looks really nice.

Ahd here's the wrist-shot:

At all, very, very nice watch, I'm so happy, happy with it :) I'm sure i'll wear it more than the 819.310 :)

Best regards, Miro.

Like that Miro, good Sub-a-like Homage. I'd think the bracelet is correct though, just my opinion!

it looks good, there is another on fleabay at the moment at £30 at the moment but there is two days to run

Do You mean another bay? Yes, I saw the other one offered by the same seller, but first, it's with a golden crown (in that moment pics are not available to see if it's branded); second - it's with another style bracelet; third - it's lume dot at the bezel is missing; and most important - when the pics were available, it was clearly visible it's not in such excellent condition :)

Anyway, if I didn't got mine, I'd try to take this one, because these are the only I've seen for the last six months (I was searching for a diver to fulfill my collection).
