1980 Reissue Royal Navy Divers Watch
(Light Vintage only)

"The 1980 RN Divers Automatic originally issued to RN Clearance Divers, NSN 0552/9237697. This watch actually superseded the Rolex MilSub on the wrists of Royal Navy divers, and its first version, with a self-winding mechanical movement, is far rarer than the Rolex it replaced."  Search CWC on Hodinkee.com for the article.

Truly built to last . Iconic watch that replaced the Rolex milsub,
This timepiece is hardcore.

Amazing watch!

I wear this all the time for its durability, history, and class. It’s nice without being ostentatious and goes unnoticed on the train through the city or when traveling. Super secure on the NATO makes it a do it all everyday carry.

Superb Quality

I received my 1980 Royal Navy Divers Automatic Reissue about a week ago and am very pleased with the watch. The fit, finish and build quality is outstanding and it is keeping excellent time. No doubt, it's a keeper. I could not be more satisfied with my purchase. MB, Alexandria, Virginia, September 21, 2023.
