FS: Vetta Vintage Dive Watch With Bakelite Bezel

For sale is my Vetta dive watch. This is pretty rare bird.
It has the same case as some vintage Blancpain dive watches have.

The tritium has a very nice deep yellow/orange colour and really pops on the dial.
The bi-directional has some paint loss but that add to the vintage charm imo.

The stainless steel case appears to be unpolished.
It has the correct crown with the W on it. This is the W of Wyler who made a similar model, some with just Wyles on the dial and others with Wyler Vetta on the dial.

The movement is keeping time and the date is changing correctly.
Service history is unknown to me.

It comes on a new black leather strap.
I'm looking for 800 euro including world wide shipping. I will also listen to reasonable offers.

If you have any questions or want to buy the watch, please send me an email:
