We present to you, for sale, a vintage BULOVA Oceanographer "Special" 333 Feet Diver. Oceanographer variants with 10K gold bezels were originally manufactured at a limited number.

BULOVA's Oceanographer was the company's answer to ZODIAC's Sea Wolf during the 1970s. Oceanographers have become very rare & highly sought after for their aesthetic & investment value.

The 10K SOLID GOLD bezel on this Oceanographer brings it up another level on a rarity index!

This may have been a restoration project gone wrong or its previous owner may have done it intentionally. The "B" & "A" of BULOVA are still visible but the letters in between have been carved out.
