Selling this stunning 1960's Sheffield Diver as it truly deserve more wrist time than it gets in my collection. This is a absolutely gorgeous 36mm (w/out crown) vintage Diver with stunning full guilloche dial in silver. Bezel shows almost no signs of wear. Lume is evenly aged, and hands and dial match perfectly. Overall condition is excellent as seen by the photos. The watch has been serviced, and was recently inspected by my watchmaker who confirmed that it's running well, and keeps very good time. Fitted a steel bracelet.
About the Sheffield Watch Company:
While there does not seem to be a lot of information, from what I gather the Sheffield Watch Company hit its hay-day in the 60's with men's divers. I believe it was an American company, Sheffield Watch Inc., based in New York, founded I think in the 50s. It seems they went out of business in the 70's. If you Google "Sheffield Diver" or "Sheffield Watch" you can see a ton of images and a variety of styles both men's and women's. Most of the men's divers are around 36mm-37mm, and have Swiss movements. I think that they were positioned as an economical watch of their time. Decent quality, decent movements and solid styling. They are affordable vintage divers that offer nice style for the money.
I hate to let this one go, but it deserves a new owner who will enjoy it. Prefer to sell within the U.S., but will consider sale outside based on buyer and reputation.
