This wonderful original 1970s Bulova 666 Devil Diver is the watch that inspired the modern devil diver reissues that are being sold under the Bulova brand today. Unlike the modern devil divers, this watch is classic all Swiss Made Bulova and features an in-house Swiss Bulova automatic movement, the 11AOACB, the last of the in-house movements Bulova ever made. This watch is a fantastic piece of Bulova history. The watch features a beautiful speckled deep black dial with applied tritium lume filled square indicies at the hours and a fantastic up-down alternating second track design. The hands are white paint dipped and tritium lume. The tritium lume on the watch is not functional (as expected). The watch features a day date display with the day in English and a quickset date that operates by push/pulling the crown. The bezel is bidirectional and in wonderful condition. The watch comes on its original Bulova 666 Devil Diver bracelet that has been restored to OEM specs. The watch features a new dive crystal, delicately cleaned dial and hands, restored original case and original bracelet, and a movement that has been overhauled and restored to OEM specs. The watch is in beautiful restored condition as per our extensive restoration and authentication process.

This 1970s Bulova 666 Devil Diver is powered by the Swiss Made Bulova 11AOACB automatic, which runs at 21,600 vph. The movement is automatic. The watch is 38mm in diameter and has a 19mm strap size. The adjustable Bulova bracelet will fit wrists up to 8″. The caseback and crown have new gaskets and combined with the new dive crystal, this watch features high-range water resistance.

As with all our restored pieces we sell, this 1970s Bulova 666 Devil Diver comes with our zero-headache warranty.
