Hello Omega Forums. Here's a piece that has blown up in popularity recently. Why, I do not know. Everyone's saying that it's because of shared similarities with the Rolex Explorer 1016. Personally, I think it has more to do with the depth rating. What I do know for sure is that this piece in particular could tell one hell of a story if it could talk. I live far away from the USA, 7649 kilometers to be exact(distance measured between NYC, where these were sold and my country's capital), so it traveled a long way. This one also has an engraving which says:"Love, Lynn" which in my humble opinion gives it a charm of its own. This is a no frills piece, being powered by a Bulova 11DP handwound movement, which is actually a "Caravelle" branded Citizen 0241 running at 18000 A/h with 17 jewels. Timekeeping is in the ballpark of +30s/d so no complaints there, maybe I'll have it inspected one of these days. Movement clean and all. What surprises me is how much the value on these went up. I'm glad I got mine before the craze began. Bezel is a bidirectional friction fit type, not as satisfactory to operate as a modern bezel, but it gets the job done. Think of a Vostok Amphibia's bezel, they feel exactly the same. This piece wears like a dress watch, which amazes and confuses me. I can't speak of the practicality of this for its intended purpose because 1. It's 50 years old and 2. I have never dived. I'm hoping to get a vintage Oceanographer in my collection one day, I wanted the reissue but I was greatly disappointed when they came out, meanwhile this will fulfill my vintage diver needs. Best regards, Paul.
