A rare a beautiful 1960s Favre-leuba 'Datic' with large 35.5mm stainless steel screwback case and twisted lugs design similar to the UG Polerouter in design with pure white dial and cool applied contrasting facetted hour markers.
The details of this watch hark back to a time when quality and design were important. The larger case and wide steel bezel gives the watch a great presence on the wrist. And the slight recessed crown design is classic of the 60s waterproof case designs, and kept out moisture, hence why this dial is so well preseved.
Favre-leuba made some superb dive watches and this is a understated and underated watch in their line.
