WTT: Blancpain Aqua Lung case & Le Jour chrono twisted lugs case

Before I list these interesting items on EBAY, thought I would post some info here to see if someone would propose interesting trades for divers or chronograph watches or who knows what?

1) 1950s/60s Blancpain Aqua Lung case, serial number 1000XX, no bezel. Has the crown tube and the metal zigzag caseback ring in place. Measures 34.9mm in diameter.

2) Le Jour steel chronograph twisted lugs case 1960s

3) new old stock 1960s Lanco Matic large dive case with bezel 48mm lug top tip to bottom tip. Top case is identical to the Favre-Leuba first gen 1960s Deep Blue top case with angled lugs.

Happy to answer questions and provide pics. Thanks in advance if you propose deals. Please email your ideas to

Regards - Bill
