    A lesser known diver's watch

    This Cristal divers arrived last week. Never heard of the brand before but I have noticed that many lesser known brands used to make superb watches.
    The movement is an F-4007 (Felca) which works perfectly. The lumes on the markers & hands have a subtle patina & still glow in the dark. The watch looks much better in real.
    Anyone ever heard of this brand?
    BTW I got this for $50

    Several items in mikrolisk Mikrolisk - The horological trade mark index

    These divers came from all over the place at those times and look very similar to each other

    I would, on the other hand, consider giving it a new crystal- the lens doesn't seem to be in line with the date, so it is possible that the crystal moves around a bit, which isn't good. Unless it was installed this way. Or is it the angle of the picture playing tricks on me?

    Thanks for all the info. I have adjusted the lens and I never touch the dial unless in extreme circumstances and in this watch the dial is speckles. White dots are shown because of a bad photograph.

    As for the strap, I manufacture them ;)

    Thanks
