The DHodge ‘1968’ Dive watch

on

This is a very limited edition run of watches due to the nature of the build. Each of these watches has been built with a Vintage AS1986 New Old Stock movement that i managed to source for the project.

The AS1968 automatic movement was manufactured between 1960 and 1969 and gives the watch a true feel of the era used for the design style, sharp eyed people will notice the movement ticks like any other automatic, but has slightly fewer “steps” in-between seconds than modern movements like the ETA 2824-2.

Each movement is tested, fully serviced, and then retested for running and accuracy.

The design style is a large crown type case with no crown guard with a 3-6-9 type submariner dial – a true homage to the 1960’s.

The watch is presented on an vintage Italian leather strap of your choice, so will probably differ from the one pictured as this strap was made from a WWII vintage ammo pouch (also available as a choice), and comes with a leather hand made travel pouch. The inside of the case back is signed, dated and serialised.
