DHodge AS1700 (SPH) model dive with vintage inspirations

This watch was a moment of inspiration that had to made once thought. It measures just over 40mm including crown.

It started its life as a spinnaker watch, and was then dismantled until only the case was left, everything else was discarded. (Strap, movement, dial, hands, crown). It was then reassembled with a custom hand finished dial, new hands, a vintage AS1700 (A Schild) automatic movement that has been fully serviced. The 1700 hundred model is a beautiful 25 jewel lower beat automatic movement from the 60’s, that was often seen inside the higher end dive watches.

The crown was replaced with crown more fitting of the vintage era and the watch is finished with an Italian leather brown strap. Finally the mineral glass in the display back was replaced to give a clear view of the movement.
