I described this watch as having 98% all-original parts though the band & clasp are new because in the case of military/dive bands, the buckle always comes with the band. Therefore, we consider the band & buckle as 1 unit/part.
This watch keeps good time & is in good working condition! Add this to your collection of vintage quality timepieces!
The photos presented below are of the actual item for sale. Kindly study them carefully because what you see is what you will get. We try our best to describe watches as accurately as we can that's why we present them visually & literally. In case we missed a few points, you are welcome to ask questions.
EXTERNAL CONDITION: This watch is in *VERY GOOD condition (83-87%): The watch shows what might be considered normal wear by a careful owner who wore the watch regularly. Scratches are evident, but no nicks or dings. May have replacement parts. A sound, attractive presentation overall.
INTERNAL CONDITION: This watch is in *NEAR MINT condition (93-97%): working perfectly, keeping good time & needs nothing.
*condition descriptives mainly based on the Timezone Grading System
For sale is this sought-after diver's watch with 666 feet to its name. Another curious & unique attribute is that it is labeled as "SET-O-MATIC", which BULOVA also used for its CARAVELLE series of watches (Yes, CARAVELLE is a BULOVA company). There are but a few BULOVA 666 Feet Set-O-Matics manufatured, making this watch a very rare find.

rotating steel bezel with black/silver/red enamel markings; turns perfectly without drag or snag

The surface of the dial has faint scattered age-spots, visible through a lens or close inspection. It's also chipped around a few edges. Though the face has aged, its line/letter detailing has surprisingly remained crisp & clear.
