    Welcome my vintage friends, it seems to fall to me to start the wruw. so still down sizing did say I had a fair few so today is a 1960's/1970's diver at a guess, it's from mascots not that much is known I did look into it at one point but can't remember now but as it going soon I thought I would give it like the last hurrah like I do... so a really nice little skindiver this is in a lovely state for age I do believe it's un-messed with and all original yes nice thing if not for my cardinal it would stay but one last show I think

    Indeed, that is a very nice diver! I am curious. Is the crown threaded or is the water resistance left to a gasket?

    Thanks,

    hmm put it away till I sell it but think it was a gasket but even thou most the ones I had like this are gasket they rated at 5 atm so I would not have used for swimming that is one of the reasons the cardinal won the rating it had
