Notes

Acknowledged in 1962 for launching the famed bivouac model which allowed climbers to get both altitude and humidity using a mechanical gauge, Favre Leuba once again came to the forefront by offering the Bathy 50, the first wristwatch featuring a mechanical DEPTH gauge. It was produced in 2 versions: one with a meter indication for the European market and the other was known as the Bathy 160 for the Uk and US market. This particular example has been kept in used condition and still comes with its original fitted box. To be sold without reserve
