Hi, due large collection reduction for sale this wonderful and very rare Breil Manta Depthometer 20 bars date quartz movement.
This is a Swiss made quartz diver wristwatch, launched in 80s. Quartz movement module ESA 965313. Quartz controlled stepper motor, sweep second, date: quickset, 1 jewels, f = 32,768 Hz.
The case is stainless steel, without bumps, dings, 42mm without the crown.
Back cover is stainless steel with engraved ALL STAINLESS STEEL –SWISS MADE – WATER RESISTANT 200 METERS and in a rectangle CERTIFICAT 1639 and 1375 (probably serial number).
Plastic glass with DEPTHOMETER system (the water penetrating in a little hole at hour 3 communicating with a circular tube included in plexi concentric at dial; the level of water shows the depth) perfect.

Dial is original, wonderful, without any sign, any humidity trace. There is written BREIL PROFESSIONAL DEPTHOMETER QUARTZ, MANTA 20 ATM and at the bottom SWISS MADE.
Original hands.
Bezel is original, turns counterclockwise with 60 clicks.
The screwdown crown show heavy signs of use (lost completely the chromium and shows copper). I didn’t want to substitute since it is original.
Original stainless steel bracelet marked BREIL.

This wristwatch is in amazing condition, WAS COMPLETELEY SERVICED on June 2018 (as reported on internal cover) keeps good time, quickset day and date works as should. changing when midnight is reached. Even was recently serviced I don't tested its water proof, so I don't encourage to take a bath or swim with it unless a proper test.
I am a collector, not a commercial seller, so I cannot give any guarantee except as described.
Please look carefully pictures. Wristwatch as far as I know is fully functional and keeps good time. Remember it is a wristwatch of more 30 years ago.
