For sale is a sought-after diver's watch, the BULOVA Oceanographer Snorkel, with 666 feet to its name. It has a pristine enamel dial (clear markings & flawless surface) with a raised silver trim & a rotating bezel.

Notice how the colors have changed over time yet its line, letter & numeric detailing have remained crisp & clear!

The resin on the bezel has turned slightly yellow, that is why it's colors, which were originally red & blue, now appear orange & green. After all, when you mix yellow with red, you get orange & when you mix with blue, you get green!

This is watch is evidence of true craftsmanship - a work of art that is both beautiful & resilient!
