The massive all stainless steel case is in decent condition showing wear and bruising but no visibly noticeable signs of oxidation. The outer edge of the case back is stamped "INCABLOC STAINLESS STEEL SWISS MADE 67199 SUPER-WATERRESISTANT" with "SCUBAPRO WORLDWIDE" followed by "5201" stamped in the center. The inside of the case back is stamped "6420" followed by "SCUBAPRO" and SWISS MADE.While the 17 jewels unadjusted Swiss "SCUBAPRO" signed ETA 2784 automatic movement with quickset date function is clean, the date wheel rolls over as it should, the time can be set and the crown can be wound, the movement does not run. The quickset date function works flawlessly by unscrewing the screwdown crown , pulling it out to the first position and then turning it clockwise until the desired date has been reached. The crown winds smoothly and screws down as it should. Given that the movement does not run and considering that it appears to have been last serviced in 1983 (the inside of the case back shows watchmaker service markings from 1974, 1981 and 1983) a complete overhaul is required. This watch measures approximately 41 mm excluding the crown, approximately 44 mm including the crown and approximately 20 mm between the lugs.
Case thickness, measured from the bottom of the case back to the top of the bezel, is approximately 13.5 mm. The sunken crystal adds no additional thickness. Given that the movement does not run and considering that it appears to have been last serviced approximately 36 years ago a complete overhaul is required. As such there are no warranties, express or implied, attached with the sale of this watch. Vintage means old and while my personal belief is that old-school means better quality and workmanship, things can and do go wrong from time to time.
For this watch that time is now. Any servicing costs going forward are your responsibility.
