Eberhard Scafograf 300

Eber-Scaf-Groot

These Eberhard Scafograf 300’s are such nice watches, very similar to Omega’s Seamaster 300. This example from the mid 60’s has a lovely original black dial with gilt printing, nicely aged markers and hands and red/black alternating date disc. The steel screwback case measures a whopping 42mm and guaranteed to 300m. The high quality 23 jewel automatic movement is Cal 266 by Eberhard. Attached is a period tropic strap. Still very much undervalued!

Blancpain Bathyscaphe

Bathyscaphe-Groot

Rare Blancpain Bathyscaphe from the end 60’s bought from the first owner. Great original piece with rare red/black alternating date feature. The original dial has aged somewhat but still very nice. The original backelite bezel is in great shape and meaures 37mm. The automatic movement cal 585 is working nicely and is fully signed. Attached is a NOS Tropic band. Vintage Fifty Fathoms are becoming so expensive nowadays that these slightly smaller Bathyscaphe models are following the trend but are still affordable.

Tudor 7924 BC US Navy

7924USN-Groot

ULTRA RARE Tudor Big crown Military, used by the US Navy. Reference 7924 is virtually the same watch as the Rolex 5510/6538 BC but much more affordable and the same watch as Sean Connery wore in the early James Bond movies. This example is in 100% original condition with large 27mm original gilt dial (most have a changed smaller 26mm dial from a 7928) which is becoming tropical. It also retains the original gilt hands and rare lollipop second hand. The original bezel still has the rare red-triangle insert which is a bit worn but indicates the military use. The case in in amazing condition with fat lugs and sharp edges. The caseback has a USN engraving + serial number (276XXX) from 1958. The Tudor Cal 390 movement is also in perfect shape. Attached is a nice leather band with a super rare Tudor clip. The watch will also come with a new Corvus NATO strap as worn by james Bond (green/red/gold stripes). Sofar this is the only US Navy Tudor BC I’ve ever seen, together with it’s originality makes this one of the rarest Tudors ever made.
