Vetta Escafandra 42mm 1962 Tropical Brown Auto Vintage Super-Compressor DiverVetta
For auction is a 1962 Vetta Escafandra chocolate dial 42mm EPSA Super Compressor caliber Vetta 700 automatic vintage diver. Not completely perfect; it shows wear and some drag marks on the turned chocolate brown from black dial. But the overall is really great; at 42mm it feels even bigger because of the really long lugs at 52mm. These are not ordinary vintage proportions. The 42mm big boy EPSA cases carry a major premium and deservingly so, they are really much much nicer watches than their 36mm counterparts. This one has an unpolished case with the original cross hatch crowns and inner rotating bezel working correctly.
