Notes:  For your consideration is an extremely rare first ever made diver watch by Certina.  This is one of the rarest divers references you can find and there are only a handful known to exist in the world.  This one being all original with the correct first generation all radium lume hands which is extremely rare.  Combined with its original GF bracelet, crown and bezel its almost unbelievable to find in this form.  One should know that there is an insane amount of radium on the watch and it read off the charts on the geiger counter. The patina is absolutely incredible!  From my personal collection the next owner will be amazed just like I was when I first received this watch.
