Watch details

A handsome vintage example with an immediately recognizable chocolate brown bezel insert. Look closer and notice the superior case condition; it's mint! There is a bit of aging around the outer edge of the dial, however, this does not diminish the aesthetic and one must look quite closely to notice it. Stock 36268

1967 saw the launch of the Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller, waterproof to a depth of 610 metres. To meet the needs of professional deep-sea divers, the case was equipped with a helium escape valve so that, during long decompression phases in hyperbaric chambers, the helium from the gas mixtures used could be released without risking damage to the watch.
