I am letting this lovely and rare Precimax go for a greater cause. It is quite a special watch, as it shares a lot of DNA with the Longines Nautilus, Longines' first diver, launched in 1956(I believe), with this Precimax alongside. 40mm at that time was huge, so there weren't many sold back then. Also, not many survived (the bezel turned out quite fragile), making this watch very rare.
As noted in the title, it has a single-crown (Super) Compressor case, accompanied by a fully bakelite bezel (not rubber like many people think). I managed to source a NOS unpainted one as well(from @Mattsworldpics) as the original one has a crack in it, which they almost always do.
The watch is fully original and unpolished, although the caseback seems to have had a bit of a polish. It still has its original cross-hatched crown. It has a crack in the bezel, and the bezel has obvious wearingmarks. The dial has two cracked spots on it. I'd leave it as is. The movement runs fine and keeps time well. It's not serviced in my possession, so not sure when it was last serviced.
Thanks for the space!
Price is in €. If you have a trading proposal, or want more information, let me know. I am looking for a blue Tudor Snowflake, a Doxa Sub 300 no-T and a O&W Caribbean 1000. But do not hesitate for a trading proposal.
