DUGENA 1000M VINTAGE ASSYMETRICAL DIVER TRITIUM 42MM RARE 1980s ORANGE HAND AUTODugena
1000M Assymetrical DIver
For auction is a rare 1980’s Dugena 42mm 1000m automatic diver ref. 220.127.116.11.04. Rarely seen branded as Dugena it was a case used by a few different brands, notably Beuchat. Wonderful assymetrical case with screw down crown at 4:30 and extra wide rotating diver bezel. Very unusual tritium lume plots are a defining feature; no other watch has plots like those at 6/9/12. The hour and minute hands are also unique and unusually shaped. One of the more interesting and uncommon 1980s 1000m divers.
