After a ‘comment’ from Jim about his vintage diver, he kindly agreed that I could use his photos Rather than post them in comments, I wanted to feature them in a post on the home page, since it is great to see a watch that has been owned from new by the same person:
Jim bought this watch in 1978, the year it was made, whilst in Japan. The model number is 52-0110, so it uses the 8200 movement first produced in 1975. The case number, 4-820789, also provides a clear indication of the movement used. Here’s the back:
Many thanks to Jim for sending the photos and giving permission for their use here – full credit to Jim for the images of course.
