    FS: Vintage Bulova Snorkel 666ft diver on Tropic 2000 rubber

    I bought this last year and, as much as I like it, it just isn't getting worn so I'm going to let it go.
    The previous owner advised that it was bought from a trusted seller, who had it serviced and the crystal replaced (hence the lack of a cyclops).
    I suspect that at that point the dial was also cleaned as it has no lume on it, just nice, crisp printing. The hands do have lume which has turned to a nice brown.
    Condition is good for a 1960s watch, although there is a decent sized scratch on the caseback.
    The movement is a handwinding but non-hacking automatic and is losing about 30-40s in 24h, so whilst a service wouldn't hurt it, it's wearable as it is.
    Case width 38mm including crown, 35mm without and lug width 18mm. Non screw crown.

    Rubber strap in first pic not included

    Looking for 190 to include RMSD.
