    This is a very uncommon Favre Leuba Deep Blue from the early 60’s. This particular watch is an Mk1 first execution.

    The case diameter is perfect measuring 39 mm w/o crown and 48 mm lug to lug.

    This particular unidirectional rotating bezel is exceptionally rare using a count up scale progressing from 0 to 60. Almost all of the Deep Blue bezels that you’ll find will have a countdown bezel.

    The automatic winding Favre Leuba movement was fully disassembled, meticulously cleaned and is accurately running without issue.

    I believe that Everything is Original with the exception of new plexi and the bezel lume plot at 12 o’clock which were redone during the recent service.This early execution Mk1 dial and hands have Radium instead of Tritium (“Ra” denoted on the dial). The dial has experienced Radium burn I’m assuming due primarily to its 56 years of use. I personally love the character and warmth of this unique dial.

    Price: $2,500 USD OBRO – Price includes PayPal and shipping within Canada and CONUS. Payment to be made in Canadian dollars.

    I tried to take pictures to accurately capture the current condition of the case, dial, hands etc.
