FS: ZRC / Herma diver "prototype" unique


I'm selling today a watch that doesn't exist ;o) Don't panic it's neither a fake or a troll.
It is simply a watch i have "invented" using 100% original parts of different brands of this era, mainly ZRC and Herma.
I actually never managed to complete any watch project with these part and i finally decided to play with them and to build an entirely new watch inspired by pictures (see below) and my own imagination.
You will find on this watch, which by the way, works perfectly apart from the date alignement and the bezel which is not turning):
- A ZRC Grands Fonds serie 3 (worth half of the watch price itself)
- An ultra rare ZRC bezel, certainly a prototype, if you look at the ad below
- A case and back case ZRC / Herma, used on the very rare model Herma Calypso Super
- An anonymous handset for diver watch from this era
- Last a brand new and serviced ETA 2472 movement working perfectly

Overall the watch is super clean ann only have few sign of decades of drawer storage!

Diameter is 35,5mm, Lug to lug is 18mm. comes with the strap on pics.

Price is 1600 euros shipped worldwide
Lots of references in needed
