FS: 1960's Belforte Skin-Diver, Orange Dial, Over-sized Bezel

I am selling a few piece in my collection that just don't get enough wrist time. Offered here is a 1960's Belforte Skin-Diver, rated at 666/ft. Belforte was a sub-brand of Benrus and this super cool cousin to the Ultra-Deep shares many of it's traits, including being a "front loader" for the movement. Overall the condition is excellent, especially the over-sized bezel with is one of the stars of the show. The iridescent orange dial is gorgeous, and shows no flaws. The original lume has turned to a creamy yellow is original.

Here are some of the specs:
-Case: Stainless steel, sharp edges, never polished.
-Movement: Belforte 11K2L1 (ETA 2370), 17 jewels, 18,000 bph
-Powered: Mechanical - Handwind
-Case Width: 37 mm (40 mm incl. crown)
-Case Length: 47 mm
-Lug Width: 20 mm
-Crystal: Domed acrylic

The watch comes fitted on a jubilee bracelet, but I will also include a vintage style brown leather strap.
I cannot open, but the piece is running great and keeping excellent time.

Asking $575 OBO plus shipping based on location with full insurance and tracking. Please message me with interest or questions.

Thanks - Jeff
