Introduction

This mid-sixties "SMBT 300" is a killer. The rugged case is preserved in a razor sharp condition and matches the strong feel of this piece. Original bakelite bezel that colored nicely matching the tritium patina on the dial. Arguably the most characteristic diver watch, for a fraction of the price compared to the Rolex counterparts from the same era.
