TECHNOS SKYBIRD VINTAGE DIVER CRANBERRY ACRYLIC DAY DATE 1970s AUTOMATIC RARETechnos
For auction is a really cool Technos Skybird vintage diver from the 1970's. This 43mm large sized diver features two bezels, a spectacular lumed maroon acrylic insert outer one and an inner bezel with 5-minute markings that is rotated by the top crown. The dial is spectacular, with two brushed vertical stripes under the charcoal lacquer that have the look of Geneva Waves. EPSA was the case manufacturer that invented this system on their line of Super Compressor divers in 1960. By the early 70's, other companies were also getting into the act. The quality on this all steel case is very comparable to EPSA. It is powered by a Technos-signed ETA 2630 that features the day in Italian and the date at 6. One of the joys we get at Time Titans is the opportunity to find watches we have never seen before. This Skybird is just such a watch. It is rare, in excellent condition and is ready for your collection.
