Description

For those who know the Caribbean 1000 watches this probably doesn't need much of an introduction

The case is a stainless steel monobloc (one piece) case with the movement accessed through the crystal. It is approx. 40 mm in diameter and 45.5 mm lug to lug. The height is 16 mm including crystal.

The movement is an ETA 2452 17 jewel automatic with date. The movement has a semi quickset date function.

This example is from late 1960s, early 1970s and comes with the 12 hour bezel. The combination of grey dial and bezel is quite rare.

The watch runs fine and keeps good time, the watch was serviced by the previous owner however there is no provenance to confirm this . The crown was replaced for waterproofing reasons. The original unsigned crown will be included in the sale. Waterproofing has not been confirmed or checked.

Overall the watch is in good, honest condition and to my knowledge all original (apart from the crown). These watches are becoming harder to acquire and even less so in this condition.

The watch is currently on an Oyster bracelet, modified end links to fit the unusual lug shape but is equally at home on a NATO.
