FS: VDST Verband Deutscher Sporttaucher (Sinn 805/Monnin)*300Eur

*I listed this watch previously, it then had a scratched glass - it has now gotten a brand new glass. The price is also lowered again*

Vintage diver made for VDST - Verband Deutscher Sporttaucher/The Association of German Sport Divers,, probably from the early 80’s.

This model is almost identical to the very rare Sinn 805 and it is perhaps not unlikely that Sinn made this one for VDST. The case by MRP SA is the same as used by Heuer, Monnin, Breitling, CWC and many others.

Steel case, approx 41-42 mm excl crown, 40 mm bezel, 20 mm lugs. The case is in good condition with the usual scratches and marks, the lower crownguard has a small dent. Unidirectional bezel, the acrylic inlay has a defect at 12 o’clock and a couple of small cracks at 12 and 17 minutes. Properly functioning screw down crown. The crystal is brand new.

Matte black dial in good condition. Cream lume on dial and hands. Lollipop second hand.

Movement - Harley Ronda 375, quartz, swiss made. Everything works perfectly.

Sold head only.

Price 300 Euro. The watch is in the EU, worldwide shipping possible. Several references from OTD/Chronotrader available.
