FAVRE-LEUBA “DEEP BLUE” DAY-DATE
Rare Favre-Leuba men’s diver’s watch. Automatic movement with rotating bezel. Day/date window at 6:00. Black dial with orange-colored minute track.
According to a notarial deed, Abraham Favre opened a small watchmaking workshop in Le Locle in 1737. In 1814, his son Henry Auguste merged with the watchmaker Leuba. From the 1950s onwards, the company innovated with high-quality timepieces. In 1956, they launched the Bivouac. In 1966, the Bathy 50 is equipped with a mechanical depth gauge.
Also in the 60s, Favre Leuba made a name for itself with its movements found in unusual twin-barrel models such as the Twiman and Duomatic. In 1970, the eighth generation is still at the helm under the direction of Henry Favre.
The model on offer is a rare and interesting diver’s watch, the Deep Blue. Large steel case, 44 x 49mm. Black dial with applied baton hour markers, 60-minute rotating bezel, central second hand and orange minute track.
This extraordinary timepiece is a true diver’s watch par excellence, used by deep-sea enthusiasts.
