MARVIN 1950s DIVER AUTOMATIC VERY RARE CONVEX RED BEZEL STAINLESS STEEL 39MMMarvin
For auction is a watch that rarely comes up for sale in any condition. It’s a Marvin Superocean Ocean Chief diver. Right now, people are very interested in these 39mm bombe lug divers from the late 50’s and the Marvin version is the rarest and arguably the coolest of the three. This watch has some use, but it is all-original, down to the crystal and curved-end tropic strap. The magenta color of the bezel is a sight to behold, as is the gorgeous black dial with chunky radium markers, applied Marvin crown logo and original wide triangle hands. The crystal is original, with it’s inner cyclops magnifier, but it has some cracking. We preserved this watch as a time capsule that it is. If you want a rare diver from the first generation of underwater watches, here is your chance.
