    Question Info on vintage Choisi diver


    Picked up this little piece the other day, running but looking pretty sad.
    Has an ETA2783 movement but other than that cant find anything about it.
    I guess it comes from some time in the 70s, but can anyone offer any other info.

    The bezel was stuck solid, so after an hour with silicon spray and much gentle persuasion I finally had it off and cleaned out 45 odd years of crud.
    Some 2000 wet and dry and some polywatch bought the crystal up. A good good clean of the case and it's looking ok.
    Inside the movement is clean but some corrosion around the seal.
    So now it's all working and looks good enough to wear.
    It should have a service but would the cost of that outweigh its value?

    Lesser known brand, but it has a mikrolisk entry (see below). As you said, it is a fairly generic 70s dive watch, and this case shape was used in a lot of lower quality "diver style" watches. However, yours is NOT one of those, since it has an all-stainless case, 20atm depth rating and a solid ETA movement. The bakelite bezel is in good shape, which is not always the case. You did well.
