Introduction

LeCoultre Deepsea Master Mariner E558 AKA "Barracuda" from 1968. This is a very special diving watch with inner rotating bezel and super compressor case. Only very few of this already rare model were sold in the USA thus marketed under LeCoultre instead of "Jaeger-LeCoultre". The watch is perfectly intact and the tritium aged nicely.
