Notes

Well known for participating in the Tektite 1 experiment in 1969, its sister version resistant to 500m were used as trial watches. This example is the 1000m version that was launched almost simulataneously but is immediately recognizable by its thick water-resistant case (18 mm.) and its colorful yellow dial with luminous indexes (2nd series).
