DIFOR VALJOUX 92 SKIN DIVER CHRONOGRAPH 1960's DEEP BROWN DIAL 37MM STAINLESSDifor
1960's Skin Diver Chrono
For auction is a Difor Brown Valjoux 92 Skin Diver stainless steel 150M 39MM tropical chronograph. Not all skin divers are created equally. For starters not all of them are fully steel. Then most of the chronograph versions are Landeron based. To find a Valjoux 92 based skin diver chronograph is generally uncommon. Couple that with a beautiful well proportioned case and an incredible brown attractive dial and you’ve got a proper 60’s skin diver chrono. This Difor is to die for (sorry, I couldn’t resist)

Case: STAINLESS STEEL waterproof to 150M, unpolished original finish, engraved 60 minute rotating divers bezel, screw down waterproof caseback, very high quality throughout
Dial: BROWN, a deep chocolate pudding brown…an unusual color that I cannot recall having seen in the exact same hue on any other watch. Tritium markers and arabic 12 and 6 have a great even patina, the outer tachymeter chapter is nice and white and provides some color relief along with the red chrono seconds hand, the sword hands have original tritium but also a spot that looked like lume loss was patched up; I can probably get my watchmaker to fix/match but I’ve decided to leave it as it exists now…it doesn’t look bad and is in keeping with the overall look of the watch
Condition: 90% very nice and clean original unpolished case and remarkable dial; relumed hands can be easily fixed if desired, otherwise this is one of the best looking, most stylish 60's skin diver chrono's around
