For sale is my rare Dievas Maya MK2 diver watch. Fully made in Germany, it has a lot of cool technology:Case, case back and crown are made of 6Steel. Referring to Dievas manual, Dievas 6Steel is a proprietary case-hardening process. First, Dievas premium 316L CNC watch case is heated in a mixture of carbon gases at a precise, low temperature to encourage the carbon atoms to diffuse within the case material. This complex process is repeated over many hours to force the superimposition of the carbon atoms within the metal structure, resulting in its supersaturation with ultra-hard carbon. The accumulation of carbon atoms forms an impenetrable 30 um layer, thus toughening the case to a hardness of 1300 Hv on the Vickers scale (6 times the hardness of normal stainless steel). The toughened case is then put through a vacuum chamber for plasma coating to increase corrosion resistance, in particular against seawater and perspiration. This multi-layering process makes the 6Steel case an ideal candidate for use in sports and diving watches.Watch is individually tested to 6,000 feet (1,888 meters) for water resistant.Extreme resistance to magnetism, up to 1000 gauss or 80,000 A/m. This is achieved by placing the movement inside a Faraday cage made of soft iron.4.5 mm domed sapphire crystal and SuperLumiNova treatment of hands and indices.
In terms of dimensions, it is 44 mm in diameter and 13.5 mm thick. Condition is 93% with some scratches on the bezel. It is powered by ETA2824-2. It is discontinued and was selling at Gnomon site for $1390. I am pricing this at $850 shipped to the US or Canada. The watch comes with the box and papers (warranty card is stamped by Gnomon Watches as of May 03 2017).https://imgur.com/ooxnVK8https://imgur.com/tTRY07Rhttps://imgur.com/PqtqkPJhttps://imgur.com/V5aGy6Ehttps://imgur.com/9byKkDBhttps://imgur.com/XFUe47B
For sale is my Aristo 5H100 type A flieger made in Germany. This watch is close to mint condition with both crystals perfect and no obvious scratches I can point out. The case is made of grade 5 titanium that contributes to an extremely light weight of the watch. It has a sapphire crystal, 100 meter water resistance, screw-down crown, transparent case back, and a reliable ETA2824-2 Swiss movement. Measured at 38.5 mm in diameter and 10 mm thick, the watch is very legible during the day and at night with generous application of SuperLumiNova to indices, numbers as well as hands. The strap is German made Fluco leather measuring 20 mm wide and having little signs of wear. I think that this watch is very competitive with Stowa and Laco fliegers that are about twice the price. The price for the watch with box and papers (Stamped by LongIslandWatch) is $315 shipped to CONUS or $330 shipped to Canada.https://imgur.com/y75k6g9https://imgur.com/gjOy7Chhttps://imgur.com/QvM9hlUhttps://imgur.com/U6tzphXhttps://imgur.com/tDni2tMhttps://imgur.com/kqyRNXP
For sale is Laco Squad Tundra. This is a discontinued model, so it is rather rare nowadays. Laco was selling them for $999 2 years ago. The watch has a very unique parabolic case and dial. Another feature is folding lugs that hug the wrist and make 46mm diameter quite wearable even on my 7 inch wrist. The crown is located at 12 oclock and is surrounded by protective steel sconce. The watch is powered by ETA 2824-2 Elabore grade running very accurately. The movement is beautifully finished with blued screws and signed rotor. Both the front and the caseback crystals are sapphire. The watch has 500 meter water resistance. The watch is in 90% condition with some scratches on the bezel.

The price for the full kit (watch, all boxes and papers) is $625 shipped to the US or Canada (international shipping is an option, but the buyer will have to cover the extra shipping cost).https://imgur.com/2mO3oZLhttps://imgur.com/uTf5u8khttps://imgur.com/4epWGhRhttps://imgur.com/lMoehCP
