AMF VOIT “Super Automatic” Diver’s Model ref 1573-666 circa 1970’s

$4,500.00

A scarce and remarkable condition example oversize AMF VOIT diver’s model circa 1970’s. Featuring a 38 X 47mm tonneau shaped case with brushed stainless steel finish, wide rotating gloss black elapsed time bezel, acrylic crystal, and gorgeous original gloss black dial with prominent and distinctive VOIT sporting goods logo.

We have to admit that we have never seen this model before, and when shown this amazing looking watch we were just stopped in our tracks! The look is so reminiscent of the Blancpain Milspec with the prominent gilt VOIT circular logo which resembles the moisture indicator of the revered Blancpain model. The logo is further enhanced by the large gilt “winged” V  below the ball logo. VOIT (no longer a household name) was a rubber goods manufacturer and later became a prominent retailer of sporting goods products in the 1950’s and 1960’s. This writer played tetherball at summer camp and in the school yard with VOIT branded balls. We understand that VOIT commissioned a limited number of these models to be produced for sale in their sporting goods stores in the 1970’s after the company was acquired by recreational product manufacturer AMF.

The watch is in little (if ever) worn condition which only accentuates the great design features and impact. Large on the wrist, unpolished case, subtle triangular silver and gold gilt hour indicators on the bezel, the absence of numbers on the dial, only lovely patina’d luminous dots and gilt minute indexes, all serving as background details to the broad gilt luminous hands and spade tipped sweep seconds hand. This watch is truly a head turner in every respect! This watch will prompt a thorough examination, not just a glance upon meeting!

Powered by ASchild self winding movement with sweep seconds and date. With heavy screwback case and unsigned original crown. Case reference # and depth rating are sharp and distinct on the caseback. In excellent operating condition and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation. Shown with sporty NATO style strap or your choice of sporty leather strap from our inventory.

Your purchase includes our signature fine leather pouch, ideal for travel and storage, a $55.00 value.
